There is a full term baby inside of me! Which according to my tracker is the size of a watermelon. Oddly enough... this isn't the first time I've had an entire watermelon inside of me. I can and have eaten full watermelons on my own. I've actually been really craving watermelon lately. How ironic.
I'm happy to say that I'm not so uncomfortable anymore. I thought it would only get worse... but it has somehow eased up a bit. Sleeping isn't such a big ordeal anymore. I still have heartburn non stop, but my only other complaint now is that my tummy is itchy itchy itchy. I know that means I'm stretching... and along with stretching comes stretch marks. So I've been guzzling water and loading up on all sorts of lotions and oils. Hopefully I don't have to stretch much more before Baby Boy decides to make an appearance.
This week's report: I've gained a total of 18lbs and I'm dilated to 1.5cm and I'm 80% effaced. My next check up will be on Tuesday! I'd like to see big changes by then. I've been doing a lot of exercising, especially walking. The other night, Karl and I took a walk with my parents to the frozen yogurt shop near their house. (counter productive?) I power walked and per my mother's advice walked with one foot on the curb and one foot on the street. I don't know if that did anything but make me look stupid and my calves burn, but I felt like a champion. And I'll probably do it again.
