Baby Bump #4 Update!
Going on 39 weeks pregnant!
I can’t believe this pregnancy is almost OVER! Any day now! Which I’m both terrified and excited about. Terrified because… well, I don’t think it matters how many babies you deliver the labor part isn’t on my favorite things to do list. One second I’m like “I want this baby out!” Then as soon as I feel a contraction I’m like “nah I’m good he can stay put a few more days” lol 😉 But on the other hand I can’t wait to meet him and love on him!
By the way, I’m a little bummed because at 37 weeks I was 1cm dilated and 50% effaced. When I went in at 38 weeks I was only 1.5cm dilated and still 50% effaced. After looking into it more I think Benadryl is the culprit for slowly down my progress. It is the only thing I changed and my contractions have decreased significantly.
My nesting is full force and pretty much complete. Some of the things I checked off my “to-do” list are…
● My house has been rearranged and organized for the new baby.
● A weeks worth of meals for our family completely prepared and frozen.
● Gatlin moved into Talons room
● Newborn clothes, blankets washed
● Infant car seat ready
● Breast pump ready to go along with new bottles. (I have to pump)
● Hospital bag packed and ready

Current Weight: 140lbs
Baby Names: Two we have picked out are Bostin and Ryott. I’m waiting till I see his face to decide.
Baby is the size of a small watermelon!
Maternity Clothes? A few pieces but mostly yoga pants! Definitely getting uncomfortable and none of my tees fit… so I’m counting down days till I pop lol!
Sleep? What’s that? Lol I haven’t slept this entire pregnancy unless I take Benadryl or Tylenol PM.
Linea Nigra? Very light, can’t even really see it.
Stretch Marks? Not any new just old ones.
Shortness of breath, Probably due to my boobs quadrupling in size and accounting for 90% of my weight gain lol!! 😉
Heartburn/Acid Reflux has become VERY annoying.
Braxton Hicks contractions are very frequent.
Baby boy moves like crazy, and often gets hiccups.
Morning sickness has decided to make it’s way back into my world. Which makes eating and drinking difficult. Same with the heartburn!
Workouts? With getting contractions early I’m playing it safe and sticking to stretching, yoga movements, and my normal daily activities (running our gym, training clients, and chasing a toddler around lol).
Diet? I’m still following IIFYM, with macros at 80-100g fats/ 400-450g carbs / 110-120g Protein / 35-50g Fiber …it’s almost become difficult to hit these daily due to my stomach shrinking or being smashed lol. NOTE: this isn’t normal for most pregnant women, I worked for months before I got pregnant to build up my metabolism.
Lately my numbers have been much lower, not by choice. But morning sickness and acid reflux make eating near impossible right now.
