Sorry for the lack of pictures. I feel huge!! :-)
How Far Along: 38 weeks and 3 days!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 25 pounds
How Big is Baby: Your baby continues to grow this week and weighs about 6.8 pounds. His/her crown-to-rump length is still about 14 inches and total length is around 21 inches.
Maternity Clothes? Of course
Sleep: Sleep...huh? I woke up at 3 yesterday afternoon and then every hour after that until it was time to get up and go into work. Yeah, I'm not sleeping so well!!
Best Moment this Week: Realizing that my due date is now less than 2 weeks away, hopefully closer!!
Movement: Yep, however this little one is running out of room so the movements aren't as strong but boy do they feel uncomfortable!
Food Cravings: Nope.
Gender: Still a surprise!
Labor Signs: Still having a ton of Braxton Hicks contractions. I've started to feel some cramping too(sorry if that is too much information). We'll see if that means anything.
Belly Button In or Out? Outie of course. There is no where else for it to go!
Stretchmarks? Not really
How are you feeling: I've been feeling pretty uncomfortable and tired lately. I think my body is just about done carrying this little one. My energy level has gone down quite a bit and labor is looking more and more inviting!!
What I am looking forward to: The birth of our baby!!
What I miss: Feeling like my body is my own. Jon was laughing at me the other day because it seriously took me minute to turn myself over from one side to the other. Everything is more complicated with this belly!
Weekly Wisdom: Take a nap if you need it. My body has been more exhausted the past few weeks than it was the 1st trimester. Although I feel like I need to make sure everything is in place for the baby I also realized (with the help of my hubby) that if my body is telling me to take a nap, I should take a nap.
Milestones: Nothing new except that our baby could decide to make his or her appearance this week...We'll see!
