Baby Gendron {36-38 Weeks}

Happy 39 Weeks 😀Let’s recap weeks 36-38:

Weight Gain: 27lbs; started out at 162lbs.

Workouts: Yoga, 21 Day Fix and strength training until 38 weeks, 3-4 times a week. Now it’s just stretching and walking.

Symptoms:

  • Migraines: All the time, but I am managing them pretty well.
  • Exhaustion: I definitely am getting more tired and have napped at least 2-3 times in the week. I do still managing to get at least 30 minutes of activity every day.
  • Nausea: All the time too 😦
  • Others: Lower back pain, groin pain, varicose veins enlarged, swollen and painful.
  • Food Aversions: None, just constantly hungry every hour.

Food Cravings: For the past few weeks it’s been:

  • “Protein Oatmeal”
  • Pretzels & Cheese (Babybel, Laughing Cow, etc.)
  • Bananas, Blackberries and Raspberries
  • Starbucks Iced Coffee w/ Soy Milk
  • Plain Cake Donuts

Maternity Clothes: Still wearing my large leggings, tank tops and lately some of Pat’s shirts.

Stretch Marks: My old weight loss stretch marks have stretched a bit more but no new ones. Also have a few very bruised varicose veins on my right leg. Still with my daily cocoa butter!

Sleep: Sleep has been a struggle to get comfy between contractions and constant bathroom runs.

Gender: It’s a girl; Samantha Julia ❤

Baby’s Nursery: All set up and waiting for her!

Baby Items Purchased: Nothing new except this long sleeve onsie. I couldn’t resist, it was cute and on sale.

Looking Forward To: Meeting our baby girl and not having this big belly. Since she dropped (and hangs on right side), my right leg has a ton of pressure. The varicose veins are swollen and painful, making it difficult to walk or move, which is not fun
