38 weeks!

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!



I love your Weekly Wisdom -- listen to your hubby on this one, Kristen. You're gonna need some energy for that labor, so rest up as much as you can. You'll be glad you did.

I'm praying for you. I can only imagine how your mama feels right now!


We wanna see your cute belly picture! I bet you look adorable :) Hopefully you at least took one to keep for yourself for memory sake! Can't wait to find out what you are having and how labor goes for you, we will pray all goes smoothly!!!


Girl, if you've only gained 25 pounds, you are not huge - I gained 45!!! Haha...but I realize that you feel that way no matter what other people say ;-) I'm sure you are adorable! Your body will be a lot more your own once baby comes, but if you're planning to breastfeed - sometimes it feels otherwise ;-) You are going to love every single moment of being a mom though! I am so excited to hear about your labor (once it happens). Sure, it's painful, but SOOOOOO very exciting that it makes up for the pain! I'm praying for all 3 of you :-)


I can definitely relate to the tiredness, discomfort, and the extreme difficulty of turning over! I'm becoming more jealous of the fact that you are two weeks ahead of me... I'm still hoping for early. I know in another two weeks I will be quite ready to "get my body back." And to finally meet my baby! I'll be watching for your news - hopefully it will come soon!!
