38 Weeks Pregnancy Update – I’m giving a pregnancy update at 38 weeks into my pregnancy.
38 Weeks Pregnancy Update
Hi Everyone, at 38 weeks, my belly is getting big, I mean uncomfortably big. Our family is just patiently waiting for baby girl M’s arrival. We are wondering which day she will be born on; will she be early like our first 2 or late? Her due date is June 4th, 2020.
I definitely got more stretch marks this 3rd pregnancy, which I am fine with.
I’ve literally been counting down the days on my calendar.
I’ve been taking my prenatal vitamins and eating well.
I’ve been having lots of dreams at night. I’ve been tracking my sleep with my new Fitbit charge 3; I’m wearing it in the picture below (I linked to the Fitbit, several models below (Amazon affiliate link)). It’s helped me a lot to actually see how I have been sleeping and I feel like there’s a direct correlation between how I sleep at night and how I cope with the next day.
I need to get better sleep, my sleep is average. It’s been hard because I’m susceptible to Pregnancy Insomnia. It’s a real thing and I am prone to insomnia as it it. I feel so much better when I do get a good night’s sleep.
Funny enough, several friends have been having dreams about me and then telling me about them (all positive!). It’s interesting, having a child does have ripple effects in the world and other people really feel it. It’s definitely an amazing, growing human experience. I have so much more perspective with it being my 3rd child too.
I’ve also been feeling slowly more brain dead – pregnancy can be very taxing on the mind and body! I know it’s just a little while longer until she’s here…
We have the new Infant car seat set up, the nursery is set up, I hope I haven’t forgotten anything…I linked some favorite items that we got for her (the birth stats sign from Etsy we will order after she’s here of course, we ordered them for my other 2 kids) #liketoknowit :
Below are some recent Liketoknow.it posts from my @preppyroots lifestyle IG account (affiliate) showing some kids/baby items we got for the new baby and our kiddos:
