38 weeks pregnant: home stretch

Can you read the look on my face? It says ‘I’ve had enough’. I am 38 weeks and three days today and only a few days away from my planned C-section. Amazing to think that my last pregnancy was exactly four weeks longer than this one – and that it didn’t really bother me back then.

In last night’s dream Big M told me that I started to look fat. It was only a dream and he’s way too sweet and too clever to say anything like this. But it was enough to make for a grumpy start into the day.

I have put on 16 kg so far. The same amount I had put on after 42 weeks with little L. And here I was thinking that chasing after my daughter would make keeping the weight gain at bay easier. It didn’t. I turned out just to be as hungry as the first time around, despite barely managing to keep anything down during the first trimester.

I am so ready for the new baby. We all are. Big M has finished the nursery last weekend and little L is counting down to C-date on her chubby fingers. Still, it all feels slightly surreal…

    Ich freu mich schon auf Nichte Nr. 2!!

  3. Seriously, most woman dream to look like you when they are pregnant. YOu look fantastic. Heck I wouldn’t mind looking like you right now. Hang in there though because I know how you feel and it isn’t about how you look, but more about how you feel. She will be here very soon. Hugs from Atlanta, Georgia!

  4. I gained the same amount almost to the ounce with all three of mine, and that, despite the fact that with the last one, I didn’t gain anything till about 18 weeks!
    Looking fab!

  5. Oh wow! Thank you! I don’t think I’ve won anything before 🙂
