Week 38

DATE: December 9, 2010
How far along: 38 weeks
Total Weight Gained: 40 pounds…..Yep….still gaining. I keep reading that by this time the gaining will slow down. Not so much here!

How big is baby? Baby has really plumped up. She weighs about 6.8 pounds and she's over 19 1/2 inches long. She has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold her hand for the first time! Her organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb.

Maternity Clothes: yep!

Sleep: Still not good this week. Have been pretty darn uncomfortable!! I figure its practice for the night-time feedings again.

Best Moment of the Week: Getting a FINAL timeline. If I don’t go into labor by next Wednesday, the 15th, I will be induced that morning! 6 more days MAX!

Movement: oh yes….always! More shifting now…and more pressure down low (vs. up top).

Food Craving: just everything! ha

Food Aversions: none

Morning Sickness: none

Gender: GIRL!! Still nameless!

Symptoms: heartburn, difficulty sleeping, contractions…but not regular, pressure, sore hips

What I miss: sleeping…I am really tired this week!

What I'm looking forward to: seeing and holding my baby girl!! I am READY.
