Before I get to the 41 weeks post, I wanted to let you all know that Celia Rae arrived February 12th at 1:11am. She weighed 7 pounds 4 ounces, and was just under 20 inches. She is the biggest blessing we’ve ever received and we love her enormously! I am getting back to regular Youtube video posting now that I have time and stuff to talk about (it will be baby-related topics until we get into our new house in late March), so make sure to check back there for more content as we figure out exactly what direction we want to go with our blog. Also, check out our Instagram account (Sarah: @sarahsyhakhoun and San: @sansyhakhoun) for more updates!
Because I’m writing this after the fact, I’m going to write it in past tense because it’s just to confusing otherwise!
Here I was on the day I ended up getting induced (although I didn’t know it at the time!):
I had to have a little fun with it this time around! It looks like the eviction notice worked!
And the beginning to the end:
How big is baby: She was 19.75 inches and 7 pounds, four ounces. Perfect!
Weight gain/loss: I never did weigh myself at the end, but I think I gained about 35-40 pounds overall.
Sleep: I think I was getting decent sleep. It’s amazing how little I remember from the week leading up to her birth!
Stretch Marks: No new ones.
Cravings: Nothing new.
Movement: The week before I was induced, she was moving like a mad woman for a good three hours every afternoon. She would push down on my cervix so hard I thought her head was going to come flying out!
What I’m loving: I was loving those last moments being pregnant.
Symptoms: Nothing new.
What I’m excited about: I was just so excited to meet her!!!
What I’m nervous about: I was extremely nervous about getting induced. I really wanted a spontaneous labor which didn’t end up happening.
