Weeks 38 & 39


How far along? In this pic, 38 weeks 5 days. I'll be 39 weeks tomorrow.
Total weight gain: 30 pounds. My ankle bones are disappearing. More swelling in this pregnancy than either of the others. Maybe because it's warmer outside?
 Maternity clothes? Oh yes.
 Stretch marks? Nope. Hope I don't jinx myself! 
 Sleep: What is that? I've been watching a lot of Jimmy Fallon and 30 Rock at 1:00am, and pre-recorded Modern Family at 2:00 am...;)
Best moment this week: Brunch with just the 4 of us in the Central West End yesterday. Also, being well loved by Mike Wade. For a man who is always wonderful, he's really stepping up!
 Miss Anything? Sleep.
Movement: Yep yep! Babe is getting cramped.
Food cravings: No cravings really, but my dessert consumption is embarrassing.
 Anything making you queasy or sick: No!
Gender: I've had 2 dreams it was a boy, but I can honestly say I'll be delighted either way!
Labor Signs: No, but still lots of contractions. And they are getting more painful but not changing anything according to my exams at the OB. I know this can change in a matter of hours.
Symptoms: Heartburn, insomnia. I actually feel pretty good, all things considered. Mentally I start to get anxious around this time. Waiting for babies is.the.worst.

Belly Button in or out? Flat.
Wedding rings on or off? Off. Haven't attempted in a few weeks.
 Happy or Moody most of the time: I'm thrilled that we have a healthy baby that's 'cooked' well. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little extra emotional. There is a lot to anticipate when you're 39 weeks pregnant.
Looking forward to: Meeting this baby!!!!!! We are SO close!
I had an ultrasound on 4/28 and baby was approx. 5lb 15oz...
Here's my official guess:
Gender: Boy
Birthday: 5/27/15
Time: 9:00pm
Weight: 7lb 8oz
Length: 21 inches
