The last few weeks of my pregnancy were very uncomfortable. My belly grew so much and it became so uncomfortable (sit/walk/sleep/stand). It seriously felt like she was going to pop out of all the pressure I had down there. At 39 weeks I started a horrible rash which turned out to be PUPPS. I had this until delivery and I can honestly say it was the worst week of my life. The rash started on my belly and spread everywhere. Back, hips, thighs, arms, shoulders, legs! I wasn't able to take any medicine so the only thing that I was able to do was take oatmeal baths. Michael was awesome. He had to deal with my extra moodiness, discomfort, sleepless nights, etc! I love him to death!!
My total weight gain was 41lbs.
Baby G would not come so doctors decided to induce me at 40weeks5days! I was a bit nervous but super excited to meet our baby girl. I tried everything possible to go into labor naturally but nothing seemed to work. I went into the hospital Monday March 7th in the AM and Sophie Alessia was born at 10:33pm (cesarean). Her last ultrasound estimated she would weigh 9.5lbs and sure enough she was born weighing 9.4lbs. Pretty Accurate!! Recovery was not easy but she is now 2 months and Michael and I have never been so happy!! We love this girl so much, words can't express how blessed we feel.
Here is my last belly bump photo taken at 39w5d and a few pics at the hospital. Excuse my hot messy look! :)
And a picture of her now at 2 months!! Boy do they grow up fast!
Thank you all for following this amazing journey with us! I loved being pregnant and really miss having her in my belly but I'm so HAPPY that she is here and we were blessed to be her parents!
