Lakeon's Pregnancy Journal: Week 38

Doctor Appointments:
March 28-- I'm at 1 cm dilated, cervix still is thick.

April 4-- Still at 1cm. I had an ultrasound. Brantley is head down and 7lbs 7oz. The hospital won't allow me to have a vbac, so I'm scheduled for a csection the 12th.

Food cravings:  Sweets, sweets and more sweets. BRING ON THE CUPCAKES.

Symptoms: I've had a few days where I've had contractions all day long and other days I have a few throughout the day. It seems like when I'm on my feet and busy, contractions stop and when I'm resting and still, I have constant contractions. Still have pinching in the cervix everyday. Last week he was moving so much but this week he moves every now and then.

Weight gain: I've gained 35 pounds.

Measurements: (before pregnancy while standing up, it was 32 inches)
(while lying down)Below the navel- 45 inches.
(while lying down)Above the navel- 44 inches.

Sleep: I really miss sleeping on my tummy. It also sucks how every time I roll over, I get a sudden urge to pee.

What I've been up to the past 2 weeks: I've been trying to stay on my feet and active. We have everything in it's place and ready for Mr. Brantley to make his arrival. I can't believe I'll have my baby in FIVE DAYS!!!

This is my last pregnancy update and I've enjoyed blogging about everything. Thank you to everyone that kept up with my journey with me. Also, CONGRATS to Michelle on recently becoming pregnant with baby #4!
