Last night: a lot of apple juice and a big bowl of cereal. Close to 10 hours of sleep.
This morning: two bananas and a bowl of fresh pineapple.
This afternoon: baked potato and toast. Bowl of green grapes.
Tonight: Cried a lot (over something not related to the adoption). Lifted more and did more (physically) than is recommended during this stage of pregnancy.
How I’m feeling (physically): frequent visits to bathroom. No real discomfort. Not a lot of contractions (as of 2pm). Baby is moving normally.
- 37 weeks and 6 days:

Last night: flour tortilla, before bed. I slept about 9 hours. Woke up and had two charley horses.
This morning: scrambled egg sandwich, herbal coffee (?); something like that.
This afternoon: uncomfortable and difficult to stand up, so I’ve been standing and cleaning a lot, so that I don’t have to try so hard to GET UP. I just stay standing up. Bacon-mayonnaise-cheese sandwich.
This evening: scrambled eggs, toast, gravy. Water. Danced to 2 songs. (Babies are born when they’re ready, so me dancing isn’t going to force him out. It’ll just give him a new in-utero experience!) 🙂 Egg, bacon breakfast taco (flour tortilla). Piece of French toast.
Discomfort: a cramp / charley horse-feeling in my extreme-upper/inner left thigh – felt before dancing.
9 hours of sleep.
- 38 weeks and 1 day: (11/2/13)
Around noon: bacon, egg breakfast taco. Water. Baby has the hiccups.
Rest of the day: bacon, cheese sandwich. Herbal coffee. Water. Bacon, cheese, mayonnaise breakfast taco. Hot Cheetos. Cinnamon candy. A lot of Braxton Hicks contractions. My back hurts.
7 hours of sleep, or so. Baby put himself in painful (for me) position. Sleeping on my other side moved him over.
- 38 weeks and 6 days: 11/7/13
I had a doctor’s appointment. Not much to report. I’ve been walking a lot. My son is a lot lower – in there.
