Week 38 Day 3

Weighed 66.5kg this morning. Yesterday I was only 65.6kg at the clinic. Must be the water retention again. 

CTG monitoring yesterday showed that baby’s heart beat is fine and still no sign of contraction for me. Baby has grown to 2.9kg and her head got lower as well. My next appointment will be 1 week later since baby isn’t coming out soon.

As baby gets lower, my lower abdomen grew more stretch marks… So that shows that moisturising doesn’t help. Once the skin can’t withstand the stretch, it simply gets damaged. Moisturising maybe only helps in easing the itch from the stretched skin. I feel so heavy whenever I walk. My legs are so huge… Elephant-huge… I have never ever been this fat before and it disgusts me. I can’t do anything for now but only to blame my bad genes of retaining fats. Unlike those fortunate preggies with skinny face and limbs, I look like a hippo. 

My right hip area gets numb when I walked more. I wonder if it’s because of the weight or the loosening of the joints. Hopefully baby can come out soon so that I can see her and also to end the 9 months of misery. 

I miss my high heels, I miss sleeping on my tummy, I miss all the sashimi and alcohol, I miss not having to bump into something just because of the huge tummy, I miss jumping around, I miss not having to pee every hour, I miss not having pelvic pains, I miss a lot of things!!

Although new challenges will come when baby is out, I just want baby to come out soon so that I can stop constantly worrying if she is alright in my tummy. 

Dear Baby, are you ready to come out soon??

  1. Hi there, just stopping by – I remember all too vividly how hard it was being pregnant and especially those last few weeks of feeling tired and sore and bloated and just ready to pop! Hoping your baby will come soon – my son was actually born on 38 weeks 3 days!
