My new best friend. Yea.... silly me thought I would have gotten away with no stretch marks. No such luck. I literally woke up Saturday morning and wowza! There they were. Now I am diligent with applying this paste. Hopefully its not too late.
How many weeks: 34 weeks - Praise God!
How am I feeling: Excited, nervous, terrified!
Doctor’s Appointment: This morning (Last MFM appointment) and this Friday 04/01 (OB appointment).
Weight Gain: 8.5 lbs (but will know for sure after today's appointment.
Maternity Clothes: All maternity
Baby Preparation: More de-cluttering and organizing.
Gender: Boy!!! Spencer Nathan W.
Sleep: Interrupted. My nightly bathroom trips total 6 times per night between bedtime and 6:00 am
Best moment this week: Realizing Spencer is still baking away
Movement: Still seeing "waves" across my stomach as he moves. Such a wonder to watch and every time I see it I am in awe of God's creation!
Food cravings: Nothing this week (yet!).
What I miss: Getting up at night without having to wake up hubby to help me get out of the bed.
What I am looking forward to: Meeting the next milestones: 35 weeks (4 days away), and delivery (but not anytime soon!), and our 2nd baby shower this afternoon!
Milestones: Getting to 34 weeks.
I woke up Sunday morning an emotional mess. I could not stop crying. I am so grateful to have gotten this far. After losing Alyssa-Joy and Evan, we really thought we were not meant to have children, but when day after day passes and Spencer is still rolling around and God is still making a way, I feel blessed to have been given a third chance. God is indeed an awesome God and the TAC is a wonderful thing!
I will update on Friday after both appointments.
Awaiting my expected end,
