So this is it!! My very last weekly update on this growing belly of mine. I thought I would do this final one differently than all the rest because there is so much more to say than just a few sentences to answer those weekly questions I posed myself.Read More
WOW! It's officially baby boy Cusick's due date, and even though he has yet to make his appearance, we know it's just around the corner, and in the meantime Brandon and I are just soaking up all the time we get together before our lives change forever!Read More
This could possibly be my last "bumpdate!!!" I know you are probably ready for me to be done with them..I know I am! Thanks so much to those of you who have followed along, it has been really fun for me to document the growing bump and my ups and downs and adventures along the way! Can't wait to meet baby C!Read More
Size: Baby is now the size of a head of romaine lettuce and is about 19.6 inches long and 6.8 pounds (at this point he could be much bigger or smaller..but I’m hoping he’s not TOO big just yet!)
How far along: 38 weeks
Sleep: Had a few nights last night I couldn't really get comfortable, this belly is just getting so big!Read More
Size: Baby is now the size of a head of romaine lettuce and is about 18.9 inches long and 6.5 pounds
How far along: 37 weeks
Sleep: No real complaints
Food Cravings: iced coffee drinks, this week I cannot get enough Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiatos!
Food Aversions: none
Symptoms: My stomach is really feeling squished and besides breakfast, I never feel like eating. My back and my psoas muscles feel very tight and in the mornings I feel like I can barely move! I am trying to stretch a lot during the day to combat the tightness.
Workouts: I have been feeling extra exhausted in the mornings and haven't been able to get out of bed to jump on my bike trainer like I usually do! But making it to an afternoon spin class if I can and have the time during the weekdays. Also, I have been taking Mochi on more walks and I have really enjoyed it, as does he!
Doctor's Appointments: Onto weekly appointments! Nothing exciting, no real signs that baby is coming any time soon. I just feel like he will be a late baby!
Movement: Really enjoying all his movements! It's never uncomfortable, don't get any rib kicks or anything like that, just lots of squirming around!
Best moment of the week: I washed all of his clothes and put them away in his room and its just so surreal! His room is pretty much ready to go!
What I am looking forward to: I'm actually looking forward to labor! I'm ready and excited for the process. Bring it on.
What I miss? Hard workouts. really itchin' to get back in the gym!
What else? I am currently packing my hospital bag, and then we will be officially ready to go! I really have been feeling the "nesting" urges to get everything all in order and I'm trying not to let it get to me too much. I know deep down the important things are taken care of and all the other little things will fall into place. Other than that, we are just so excited- waiting is the hardest part!
How far along: 35 weeks
Sleep: Other than jetlag waking me up at 4 am, I'm good!
Food Cravings: I have been really craving all things fresh- fruit, vegetables, salads, smoothies
Food Aversions: noneRead More
