38 weeks...

Only five days to go until we get to meet Frostie!!!  I finished up work on Friday, so this week has been catching up with things at home and trying to relax.  I'm so glad I was able to work up to when I planned, which means I'll be able to have more time at home once Frostie makes his/her arrival.  Now I have twelve months off at home! 

I've been starting to get more uncomfortable and my sleep is getting worse but that's supposed to be expected at 38 weeks.  I've been pretty lucky this whole pregnancy with sleep so I think it's just my body getting ready for the sleepless nights ahead. 

At this stage I'm not worried about c-section, but I am worried about how I'll recover and be able to look after a newborn.  Luckily my mum is coming to stay with us for a week after I get out of hospital and BJ has two weeks off after mum goes home.  So I'll have plenty of support once I get home. 

How far along: 38 weeks, two days
Total weight change: not sure
Maternity clothes: All the time, thankfully now I'm not working I can wear what I want at home
Stretch Marks: Not yet
Movement: More rolling and the odd kick or punch
Sleep: Has been better
Best Moment This Past Week: Only another five days until we get to meet our little bubba
Most Difficult Moment This Past Week: Reflux has still been bad and more sleep required
Belly Button In or Out: Still pretty flat but pokes out every now and then
Cravings/Aversions: Nothing much
Symptoms: Reflux and multiple toilet breaks
What I'm Looking Forward To: meeting our little Frostie and becoming parents!
