10 weeks...............20 weeks..............30 weeks.........
39 weeks......I thought I'd do the comparison today. Ya know, just in case I don't make it to 40! (Haha. Yeah right!)
How far along? 39 weeks. Put a fork in me. I'm done.
Weight gain/loss: Still hanging tough at +32 pounds. That's like 12 more than I told myself I wanted to gain and I fear the post partum diet I'm going to have to go on. Goodbye ice cream and gummy worms! It probably doesn't help that I started my pregnancy with a *few* more pounds than I would have liked.
Maternity Clothes? Haha. That's funny. As if I could fit into anything else.
Sleep: I could literally set a watch to my potty breaks. Two hours on the hour...like clockwork. When I am asleep though, I'm like the dead.
Stretch marks: Still nothing new, but I swear one is going to pop up on my foot with all this redonkulous swelling. Even my toes are fat.
Best moment this week: Feeling sorry for my big ole pregnant self and then feeling the baby move. It made me realize these are the last few days just me and him and I should probably embrace it a little before I have to start sharing him with the rest of the outside world.
Movement: Yep...and he's definitely feeling lower these days. Maybe this means I'm actually making some progress!
Food cravings: Ice cream! I may or may not have consumed an entire half gallon of ice cream in a matter of days then went to the store and bought another one so my husband wouldn't realize it was all gone already.
Gender: Team Blue!
Labor Signs: Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. My son will be attending college from my uterus.
Belly Button in or out? In. I told you all I'd make it without an outtie!
What I Miss: Not having to mentally prepare myself before walking up a flight of stairs or getting up off the couch.
What I'm looking forward to: Having an outside baby. The suspense is killing me!
Weekly Wisdom: As much as you just want to be done at this point....try and enjoy these last few child free days.
Milestones: I'm officially on people's "watch" list. When I show up at work, people are surprised. When I call someone unexpectedly, they think I'm calling with news. I also think a mild case of nesting has set in. I'm not busting out the toothbrush and bleach just yet, but I have this weird new obsession with making sure the house is in some sort of order when I leave everyday...just in case I don't come back for awhile. Oh! And the hospital bag is officially packed! It's go time!
