I’m sharing my 38 week pregnancy update. So, now we begin the countdown, right?!
To catch up on past pregnancy updates, visit my pregnancy page.
About 6.5 lbs and 20-22″ long, the size of a Swiss chard based on the WTE app.
Around 18-20 lbs, but it fluctuates quite a bit depending on the time of day. I do weigh less than I did with Jada, but my belly is measuring on time. Baby boy is still gaining half a pound per week.
I honestly don’t know how much farther my belly button can stretch…I mean, I hope it goes back!
Because space is dwindling, it’s more rolling and stretching. He’s head down, so sometimes he reminds me to sit-up straight with a kick to my ribs or sternum!
I walk everyday with Cooper. Sometimes I have Jada in the stroller, but I’ve been trying to do this just with him when Spencer’s schedule allows. He’s my first baby after all.
For FitPregnancy CrossFit workouts, I’ve been relying more on dumbbells than the barbell, partially due to a very cold garage!
I recently did this one:
20 minute AMRAP with 25# dumbbells
- 10 squat hang cleans
- 10 push press
- 10 walking lunges
Workouts like this are about every other day now. By the end of some days, my pelvis really is sore and just might fall to my knees. Hello waddle.
I’m definitely listening to my body. At the same time, I know I’m not going to want to exercise much in the weeks following his birth, so I dig deep now.
Again, the cramped quarters in my belly mean smaller meals. Can’t get enough green smoothies.
And, easy dishes like turkey meatballs and a steamable bag of quinoa on top of greens are frequent.
I loaded up on frozen veggies and protein blends for meals–this will be huge when baby boy arrives too.
We got her this book to start thinking about being a big sister and helping, and she totally digs it. Mostly, it’s been about spending time with her and trying keep up with her energy levels!
That means I’m her creative canvas at times…

Spencer and I are really excited to meet him. Spencer’s birthday is December 10th, so maybe they will share that day??? My mom is visiting the week surrounding his due date, so ideally he will arrive then. That way Jada is cared for and she can meet her grandson.
Thanks for following along! Any guesses to baby boy’s arrival?
