38 weeks

How Far Along? 38 weeks

Weight gain/loss: 22 lbs gained.  Now at 152 lbs.

Maternity clothes: Yes.  Even the elastic waist of my maternity pants is starting to feel tight.

Stretch Marks: Nope :)

Sleep: Awesome!  New bamboo sheets are glorious!  I have been having some weird dreams though.  Too weird to post here.

Best moment this week: Finishing up at work for a year!  My co-workers had a little celebration with a cake for me.  Very sweet.  I even had a client drop off a gift of books for our baby.  This was unexpected.

Gender: If I had to choose, I would say my gut says boy.  Everyone seems to know what it is.  I even had somebody tell me that they knew I was having a boy, because if it was a girl, the extra estrogen would make me look more vibrant instead of rundown.  Ouch!

Belly button in or out: I say out.  Ryan says in.

Movement: This baby doesn't stop.

What I miss: Wine; ribs and a back that aren't constantly aching.

What I'm looking forward to: Seeing what this baby looks like; being well endowed-I purchased a nursing bra a week or so ago, and the size-34DD!! I am usually a 34B.  I don't think that I have changed that much, but it seems to fit well so I will take it!

Milestones: Baby is now considered full term.  He/she can come anytime now! Doctor says that the head is now in the pelvis, and will stay there until baby is born.  This is good news as our hospital does not do breech deliveries.

Other pregnancy symptoms: Stinky, swollen feet.  Not sure if the stinky part is related to pregnancy, but something unusual for me.

Doctor appointments:  Now every week.  Everything continues to be right on track, however, they keep telling me that I am measuring small.  I asked my doctor about making a birth plan, and she told me I would be laughed at.  I love her honesty.

37 weeks, 3 days
