PREGNANCY – WEEK BY WEEK #38

This is probably going to be the last pregnancy update! Our little boy is still breech and in Italy it means that you will have a C-section without the possibility of natural birth. And as they have re-scheduled the C-section for coming Wednesday (October 14…OMG!!!!) I’m likely not having any more updates about the pregnancy. Better, we are going to meet our son very very soon! I’m so excited about it!! Of course there is still a slight possibility I’ll continue the updates if he suddenly, last-minute, decides to change position. Even if Wednesday the ultrasound shows he has changed position I won’t have the C-section! So, we’ll see… Until 1,5 month ago I wasn’t thinking too much about a C-section because I thought he would still change and have his head down…but he must really hurry up now. I’ve only 4 days left.
I think I will miss my belly and feeling his movements inside of me, but I’m so curious about him I can hardly wait these 4 days.
Best part of these past two weeks: seeing the hospital where I’m going to deliver and where I will be staying for a few days and of course the ultrasound.

How far along? 38 weeks
How many echoes until now? 9 (week 7, week 10, week 12,5, week 15,5, week 17,5, week 19,5, week 23,5, week 29,5, week 34,5) + 1 extra yesterday during the preparation for the C-section.
Expected date of delivery? October 14!
Total weight gain? 8,5 kilo / 19 pounds
Gender? Boy
Name? yes!
Belly button in/out? In, the whole pregnancy!
Stretch marks? not one! Hope we’ll keep it that way also after birth.
Sleep? My back hurts at night so sleeping is not as it was before…
Typical pregnancy symptoms? Harder to sleep, bad memory, need to slow down with pretty much everything, back hurts and difficulty walking these last days.
Maternity clothes? oh yes.
Food cravings? I want all things sweet….months without sugar is making me long for it now!
How to keep fit? Swimming once week this past week (60 laps)
Baby’s room? All ready for our little boy’s arrival!
Baby’s gifts? I bought him a cute little teddy bear with an internal music box. Letting him hear the music every night..
Surprises during pregnancy? Most likely not being to be able to give birth naturally but getting a C-section instead!
