How far along? Not pregnant anymore! She's here! :)
Size of baby?39 weeks: pumpkin
40 weeks: watermelon
Total weight gain? I ended up gaining 13 pounds total. Somehow, I have already lost 18 pounds... not sure where the other five came from or went, but hey... I won't complain!
Gender? GIRL! You can read about it here!
Maternity clothes? Not anymore! I am fitting into my regular jeans and shirts again - thank goodness! I was so sick of only having a few go-to outfits...
Sleep? I wasn't sleeping well up until her birth, but since then, I've been back to my old self... which is great! But it also sucks because that makes it even more difficult to get up and feed her in the middle of the night...
Work outs? We went for a family walk the other night, but other than walking, I'm taking it easy until I'm cleared by my doctors... I don't want to worsen the recovery period.
Cravings? Not really anymore! But hey - vegetables sound good again!! That's a bonus. Salad is delicious... one of my favorites... and I couldn't stomach them while pregnant.
Best moment of this week? The moment we met our sweet little Annabelle - the feeling when they placed her on my chest after delivery (although it was a short time due to her complications) is indescribable. I was so overcome with emotion in that moment.
Worst moment of this week? 37.5 hours of active labor with Pitocin... yeah... worst moment of the year, not just the week. That was rough.
Looking forward to? Bonding with and watching Annabelle grow!
