Re: 38 week moms Q&A

  • I've never done this throughout my pregnancy. Might as well start now....

    What are your newest symptoms?

    Swelling like crazy (literally 14 lbs in 2 weeks- no protein and HB is 120/70, so no worries), insomnia, back pain/sciatica. I've had the easiest pregnancy until about 2 weeks ago, so I am not complaining at all. 

    What are you most excited about after baby arrives (besides finally getting to meet him/her)?

    Running...Not feeling like I HAVE to eat something...sushi....WINE...enjoyable romantical times with DH :)

    How much have you gained?

    I have no real clue. 

    What are your biggest fears?

    Staying connected to DH. It's just been us for 6 years. I'm a big believer in the idea that the best thing a father can do for his child is love her mother.

    Any last minute cravings?

    Juice...dark chocolate brownies
