I officially have only 5 days left to meet my baby girl. Yet again I could meet her before or after. I don't take my due date as set in stone but I'm definitely getting excited. Here's a bump shot from today, 5 days to the estimated due date:
Weight Gained/Body: I'm still sitting at 22lbs gained, no change since last week. My bump is sitting much lower than before though. I don't think I'm gonna make the 25lb-35lb weight gained target for my BMI but then again my midwife is not concerned at all.
Activities: Haven't swam all week! I just go for daily walks now. Either drive to the mall and walk around there or walk myself to Chapters which is 20 mins walk from our house.
Labour Watch: Been definitely getting some signs as of 2-3 days ago. A tone of menstrual like cramps that started as dull pain and are now more intense and mostly on my back. I also have irregular contractions that come and go randomly and not letting me sleep well. There's more TMI stuff too but I spare your ladies the details (especially those who haven't been through labour, lol!)
Mood: I'm now mostly calm and waiting on things to get going. I have a tone of food stocked in the freezer (thanks to my super helpful mom) and spend the days catching up on beauty sleep, watching reality tv shows and going for afternoon strolls with girlfriends and hubs.
Additional Note: My husband is working hard to wrap up the last details of his startup business before things happen baby-wise. And I'm still hoping baby stays put till her due date to give us more time. One of my close friends is in town tomorrow so we were just chatting on the phone. I told her about my signs and she said they sounded exactly liker hers a day before she went into labour :/
