Well, we made it to 39 weeks!!! This is the farthest (and most uncomfortable) I have been in my history of pregnancies! Brooke was born at 38.5, and the twins were born at 36.5 weeks. I’m so thankful that he is still baking, and that I can enjoy his movements the next couple days…his little cheeks will be nice and chubby when I kiss them on FRIDAY!!!!
Baby Beckham – Approximately 7.25 lb and 20 inches
Stretch marks – Yeppers.
Memory Loss – Horrible. I have to use icloud to “call” my phone at least once a day. I also was prescribed a sleeping aid to help my insomnia. Medicine has strange effects on me, so I have only been taking half a pill to get some rest this week. I really should take it while I am lying in bed, but last night I took it and then decided to pluck my eyebrows. Because I have really bad eyesight (and the effects of the medicine), I leaned up to get a closer look and BAM. Don’t tell Landon.
Favorite moment this week – Sunday was our six year anniversary….my favorite moment was waking up on Sunday realizing I was going to have a baby with my best friend THIS WEEK!!! We have been anticipating this moment for so long!
Movement – Still crazy (which I am trying to savor these last few days)…when I talk to him and ask him questions, he always responds the most when I ask him if he looks like Brooke. I wish I had it on video, but then again, no one wants to see my bare belly.
Favorite Comment – “Girl, you have got the pregnant waddle BIG time.” I really do…I’m having some severe back pain, and i’m not embarrassed one bit about my waddle 🙂
“You look like you are ready to POP!” I’m sure I do…but it’s nothing compared to those last few weeks with the twins!
Not so Favorite Comments – “Oh it’s just your fourth kid, it doesn’t matter.” I have gotten this one a lot…referring to things that are important to me…not my favorite thing for people to say.
“You do know how babies are made, right?” Not. Funny.
Food cravings – Not much. I haven’t had much of an appetite this week…I think it’s the lack of room in my belly right now. I am down to eating about 12 small snacks a day.
Maternity Clothes– I of course still have to wear maternity pants, but I’ve given up on my two shirts. I got bored. So I’ve been wearing fleeces and t-shirts that are almost too short.
Have you started to show yet – Beckham definitely sticks “out” more than the girls did. People always tell me I don’t look that far along while talking to me…then I turn to the side, and they say “Oh…..I see it now!“. LOVE IT!
Gender– Still a boy – I hope so because if not, she will be wearing the cutest boy clothes I have ever seen. 🙂
Belly Button in or out- Oh boy, I don’t know if it will ever return to normal.
“Beckham, COME OUT NOW! Please, come out!!” -repeated/sung throughout Target by Lily
“Beckham is trying to come out of there.” -Lily as she points to my bellybutton (she is really excited)
(me) Why are you sitting on your baby?
“Because that’s how Beckham is going to come out” – Lauren. WHO TOLD HER THAT?!?
“Does your bellybutton hurt – it looks like a boo-boo. Yikes. ” -Brooke
