No doctor's appointment since last Wednesday. Nothing new to report ... lots of peeing all day long, lots of uncomfortable sleep (non-sleep), and general sluggishness. I jogged my last couple of miles on Sunday and Monday.
thebump.com provides the same size measurements for baby brother this week ... size of a watermelon, 18.9-20.9 inches, 6.2-9.2 pounds. Basically just getting bigger and longer every day that he's in there.
Pregnancy Symptoms at 39 Weeks
- False labor. Usually these pains start in the front of your body and ease up when you switch positions. You'll know it's real labor when they start at the top of your uterus and become more frequent.
- Water breaking. Call your doctor if you suspect yours has broken, or if you think you could be leaking amniotic fluid.
- More heartburn, hemorrhoids, pelvic pressure and trouble catching your breath.
- The urge to nest. Don't stress though -- you'll never get everything done.
And that's all I've got for this week ... got acupuncture on Monday in hopes of inducing labor. Obviously it didn't work since I'm here giving a 39 week update. I got my nails and toes done on Friday and am getting my eyebrows waxed and hair blown out this morning. All in preparation of his arrival ... and so I don't have to worry about washing my hair for a while (I'll spare y'all the actual length of time I go without washing my hair).
Hopefully the next baby brother update will include his arrival. If not see you at 40 weeks!
