The last few weeks in the belly!!

I haven't posted in 3 months and thought I'd update everyone and also close our pregnancy journey!
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!
