Belly with Mr T on the left. Belly with baby Girl on the right.
Lets conclude the following:
My hair is better this time.
Going on bed rest for 7 weeks (with Mr T on the left) really does pack on the pound in the face.
So much in fact I clearly didn't want to take any pics weeks 30-38.
Wish us luck tomorrow. Yay for inducing!! Always a plus for the ultimate planner.
This year it's even more intense. I don't know if it is mostly because I've been counting down to the beginning of October ever since we found out our due date. But I also seem to have almost a CRAVING for college football.
Does anyone else experience this? Maybe not the football part, but crave things during pregnancy that are not food related.
For me, I have had a series of cravings. First it was Pink. I usually didn't wear the color, but for the past 3 trimesters I just can't get enough from my clothes, toe nails, and accessories. Don't worry, my ultimate favorite color will always be orange!
I have also found myself CRAVING different music. I've always had quite the wide range of songs set up in my playlists. But this was different.
First trimester I wanted anything 80s. Love jams, rock, pop...just had to be 80s.
Second trimester was all about Country. Just good ol knee smackin country. And the third trimester has been a combination to hard rock and pretty hard core rap. Yes, I can get down with that. Perhaps I am just trying to get whatever adrenaline rush I can get to keep the energy.
But now because this baby is ginormous (as in 99 percentile big) we have a set induce date of October 1st. Which mean the precious "1" means a lot. In at least ONE month, our baby girl will be here. One month. I can do this. I can last until October 1st. One month.
