Bumpdate / Week 38

How far along: 38 weeks, 1 day

Baby size: About 6.8 pounds and over 19 1/2 inches long.

Must-have items: Cocoa butter lotion and CPK's Strawberry Mango Cooler.

Symptoms: Cramping, RLS and acid reflux at night, skin feels tight but I can breathe a little better now that she’s dropped.

Baby movement: Lots.. and like I said above, she’s dropped down and is facing my tailbone so she's in perfect position to make her debut.

Gender: Girl

Favorite moment: This morning when I had my weekly check-up and found out I’m 4cm dilated and 60% effaced and my doc swept my membranes. This is almost the exact same scenario with Rowan.. even the appt falling on 38 weeks and 1 day and then I had her the next morning. Only difference with Rowan was that I was 70% effaced instead of 60. If things progress anything like they did last time, it may just be baby eve!

Least favorite moment: Feeling emotional about the pregnancy nearing the end and anxious about labor/delivery. Send me and the baby good vibes!

Signs of labor: Lost mucus plug, cramping, dilated, effaced, swept. Let’s do this.
