Baby Size: Last week at our anatomy scan, she was 8lbs 7oz (roughly) so I imagine she's grown a tiny bit more this week. But at this point, it's all a guess! Baby apps say that she is the size of a Winter Melon, whatever that is.
Movement: Per usual, yep! Little lady hiccups all the time, loves when mommy drinks ice cold Topo Chico's, and usually knows when I wake up in the morning time (she must hear my alarm go off)!
Best moment this week: Simply being full term! I am in AWE. Beyond thankful to be at this point. Glory to God!
Looking forward to: Kensington's birth day. Who knows when it'll be... but I imagine that God and Kensie have a pretty good plan worked out. The excitement of not knowing is such a fun part of pregnancy!
What I miss: Just because I can't keep putting "nothing" here, I will say that I miss being able to eat like normal haha. I am ALWAYS full (indigestion is real y'all) and can't enjoy food anymore. I'm sily - I know.
Symptoms: Carpal Tunnel and swollen ankles. Not gonna lie, it's very uncomfortable. I had an emotional breakdown the other morning because I was frustrated that I can't do things like "normal" but then I wiped the tears and reminded myself that this is normal and things will go back after delivery. Doctor thinks it'll take about 6 weeks post delivery to get rid of the Carpal Tunnel and the feet/ankle swelling should be taken care of a week or so after delivery.
Nursery: Very much done (here) and very much in love with her space!
Wedding rings on or off? Very much off. Has been for a while. Wearing my fake rings.
Daddy-isms: At dinner this week, hubby said, "As we get closer to her due date, I am more excited to hold her." This is a big deal, y'all. My husband does not hold babies (I think he's held one baby before) and I can just tell how excited he is for Kensington to be here. He also asked if they could spend daddy-daughter time together (without me) and I said "OF COURSE!" He's silly to even think he has to ask. After all, without my hubby's help, she wouldn't be here.
Prayer: Lord and Savior, it has been such a blessing that you would choose me to carry this child that you've created. While I am so thankful to be her mommy, my prayer this week is that she'll call you Heavenly Father from the day she's born until the day you call her home. Throughout my pregnancy, I pray that others have seen your light in me. I pray that everyone knows that you get the glory; you get all the credit. As we near the end of the pregnancy, I pray that you will protect both Kensington and I and that we have a smooth labor/delivery.
