I am officially 38 weeks with this little guy. I am definitely bigger this time around than I have been the last two. I am measuring just a little bit ahead but this boy sits SO DANG LOW!!!
He has been sitting low the entire pregnancy and the ultrasound tech even mentioned it when she was doing the anatomy scan. She wasn't sure if she would be able to get all the pictures she needed because my pelvic bones may have gotten in the way. Thats how low he is. Thankfully she got all the pictures she needed and everything has been smooth sailing.
Aside from being so big, this pregnancy has been much like the other two. I feel good most of the time, although sleeping can be tricky and uncomfortable.
Another difference in this pregnancy is my weight gain. I am not going to mention specific numbers but YIKES! I will have a lot of work to do once this boy is born and I am cleared to work out. Oh well.
I am enjoying all the crazy movement just as much as I did before. It never ceases to amaze me how much a tiny little human can move around in such a tight place. He is constantly kicking and rolling around although he is getting a tad cramped these days. I am not sure how much bigger I can get to give him any more space!! He also seems to enjoy moving his head and hands around which are WAY down low. That is a new feeling and lets just say...it's weird.
The kids are excited for a baby brother and have helped getting things from Target and putting stuff away in his room. They also take it all back out so I am not sure they are the MOST helpful little workers but it is fun to see them excited.
Here are a few photos from earlier in this pregnancy:
24 weeksI am so thankful that my body handles pregnancy so well. I literally cannot complain at all (except maybe about the new stretch marks) and I am so glad that my body can keep up with all the changes to give us such an amazing gift. I am so thrilled so be having another little boy and although I can still wait a week or so, I can't wait to see his precious face.
