How big is baby? Watermelon! 6.2-9.2 pounds and 18.9-20.9 inches; all major development is done.
Physical differences from last week? I weighed 142 pounds on Tuesday morning (and haven't weighed since); I'm probably at 143-144 pounds, which is an overall gain of 34-35 pounds. I am hella swollen. So gross - I hate this part of pregnancy! I've been wearing maternity dresses and non-maternity yoga pants and shorts this week...everything is uncomfy. I am verrrry excited for regular clothes!
How I'm feeling? Happy, anxious, excited. I'm uncomfortable, but I have felt so much happier since Tuesday, when they scheduled my induction. My legs have been killing me since Wednesday afternoon; I walked up (and then back down) 17 flights of stairs on my lunch break in an effort to encourage labor. Contractions are every 15 minutes, sometimes closer in the evenings, but they never progress. No cravings, but I should point out that I've had (at least) two Icees each week and pancakes once a week for the last month.
What's been on my mind? Trying to induce labor.
What I'm looking forward to? Labor.
Best moment this week? Friday. My last day of work, and Lucy's last day of daycare, was Thursday, so we had the day together. I loved the one on one time. It was the perfect way to start the weekend and maternity leave. We've spent the weekend relaxing, swimming, and eating. For as much as I would have liked to have gone into labor spontaneously, it's been nice to plan ahead and enjoy our time together as a family of three.
