Another Wagner Baby: 39 Weeks

How far along: 39 weeks! Praying that Levi comes safely ASAP! Gender: Boy!Weight gain: +1 lb. this week, overall weight gain is +33 lbs. Maternity clothes: I have been avoiding going out into the hot Texas heat but if I do, I have been wearing my maternity jean shorts - so comfy! At home I have these ratty non-maternity shorts that I have been wearing....or just no pants haha! Stretch marks: YES. No more details ;-) Belly Button In/Out: It's completely flat - so weird! Sleep: I have not been sleeping well this week at all. It's actually quite miserable and I've come to dread bedtime because I know it means trying to sleep....and I won't be able to. I just can't get comfortable (even with my barricade of pillows) and having to get up to go to the bathroom multiple times throughout the night makes it hard to stay asleep (plus, I have to un-barricade myself from my pillows to get up and then try to rearrange them the way they were when I get back into bed, ugh!). I kn…

Another Wagner Baby: 38 Weeks

How far along: 38 weeks - we're in the home stretch!Gender: Boy!Weight gain: +3 lbs. this week, putting my overall weight gain at +32 lbs. Maternity clothes: It's pretty much leggings and maternity tops all day at home and I've been loving any kind of maxi skirt or dress to go out or sometimes my tried and true side panel maternity jeans. It's SO HOT here in Texas! I've also been wearing my nighttime nursing bra most of the time at home, it's much more comfortable.  Stretch marks: Oh yes, and I seem to have given up on the lotion. Stretch marks are part of having babies, so it is what it is.Sleep: I've been going to sleep relatively easily this week and getting back to sleep easily after having to use the restroom 832098524 million times a night, whew! But I've been waking up around 6:30/7:00 consistently and having a hard time going back to sleep so I usually just go ahead and wake up. For those wondering, yes my daughter is a late sleeper! She usually…

Another Wagner Baby: 37 Weeks

How far along: 37 weeks! -- soooo close!! Gender: Definitely ALL boy. We had a sonogram appointment this past week and I asked the tech to just double check for me. Levi is definitely a boy - and I am most definitely a little bit terrified, hah!Weight gain: + 2 lbs. this week. Overall weight gain is +29 lbs. Maternity clothes: My side panel maternity jeans are still a favorite, leggings and comfy maternity tops as well! I've started wearing a nighttime nursing top around the house and at bedtime, it just feels more comfortable. Stretch marks: The "roadmap" is still very much there. And again, I'm hopelessly applying lotion almost every day to try to turn back the hands of time. Sleep: I've been sleeping much better this week! We had a pretty busy weekend with friends in town so there were a couple nights where I went to bed late and felt tired the next day but for the most part I've finally figured out a good sleeping position with just the right amount of pi…

Another Wagner Baby: 36 Weeks

How far along: 36 weeks!Gender: Baby boy - although I've been having dreams that we're having a girl! We have a sonogram scheduled for this week, so I might be asking them to just double check for me. Hah! Weight gain: - 1 lb. this week, overall weight gain is at +27 lbs. Maternity clothes: Lots of leggings and maternity tops! Stretch marks: Ohhh yeah. I've been hopelessly applying more and more Moringa Body Butter all over my belly every day to try to turn back time but I think the road map is here to stay. Oh well, badge of honor for bearing children, right? Sleep: This has been a horrible, horrible week for sleep. Carson was gone for a couple nights this week and I conveniently came down with something. I cleaned the entire apartment last Tuesday because...I don't know, nesting? I think my getting a sore throat/congestion was a reaction to the cleaning chemicals and the dust. ANYWAY, not only was I uncomfortable because - pregnant - but I was also really uncomfortab…
