How far along?: 38 weeks
Total weight gain: 34 pounds total, which puts me at 149 pounds.
How big is baby?: The size of a mini watermelon! I was told by my OB that this little girl will be bigger than Avery!
Sleep?: It’s getting harder! I still wake up just once to use the bathroom, but I’m always sore in the morning!
Best moment this week?: Being able to take some maternity photos during this whole Covid-19 crisis!
Worst moment this week?: The fact that Andre and Avery can’t be with me during my OB appointments.
Movement?: Lots of hiccups! Baby girl is in the right position (head down) and is quite the little kicker!
Labor signs: Net yet!
Food cravings?: mango slushies, pocky sticks, PB&J sandwich
Symptoms: The usual – lower back, shoulders & neck pain!
Stretch marks?: I spotted 2 tiger strips! Yikers!
Belly button in or out?: Still an innie
What I miss: Spending quality time outdoors with Avery. Since Covid-19 we’ve been on lockdown and haven’t gone out much!
What I’m looking forward to: Becoming a family of 4 very soon.

Dear Avery,

It’s just been us since you made me a mama.
My other half, my sweetest little friend.
Come here my baby, and be my only, for just one moment more.
This expanding will build us. Make us fuller I know.
But when I see you again, you won’t feel as little.
So just lay with me, let me rock you slow.
Let me thank you my baby, for being the best teacher a mama could know.
