38 Weeks!

 

these photos are starting to get worse, I didn't realize I looked so angry in this one
 
How Far Along:  
  38 weeks 3 days- 11 days until my due date!
 Baby Size:  
According to What to Expect: Watermelon- approx. 19-22 in long and around 6.5lbs 
 
 
Exercise: 
Trying my best to get at least a 1 mile walk in every day
 
Maternity Clothes: 
Yes probably 90% of the time- I can still wear non maternity dresses and yoga pants 
 
Stretch Marks:
So far so good
 
Sleep: 
Much better since I've moved to the guest room but still not great. I wake up a few times a night and it's hard to get readjusted and back to sleep. 
 
Best Moment of the Week: 
Last Friday my co-workers threw me a surprise baby shower- it was so sweet and I was completely surprised.   
 
Miss Anything: 
 Just the usual: pre-baby body, alcohol, sleeping on my back, being comfortable, etc
 
Movement: 
Yes lots of large movements and he's still pretty active.  I have a foot permanently sticking out of my right side these days.  
 
Food Cravings: 
 I still like hot and spicy but no crazy cravings
 
Symptoms: 
-Swelling
-Sore hips
-getting hot easily
-a huge belly that gets in the way of everything 
-my belly has dropped
 
 
Anything making your queasy or sick: 
Nothing in particular 
 
Have you started to show yet: 
Yes 
 
Gender:
Boy!
 
Labor Signs: 
I am 1cm dilated and almost 50% effaced-  of course this could mean nothing so I'm not getting excited just yet.  
 
Belly Button- In or Out?:
It's pretty much flattened out- I don't think it's going to pop out though 
 
Wedding Rings- On or Off?:
Still On!
 
Happy or Moody?:
Happy-  I'm in total nesting mode this week. I need everything clean and organized  
 
Looking forward to:
Finishing our to-do list! Fingers crossed we can accomplish it in the next few days

  2. Aw, you look so great! I'm impressed that you're able to walk 1 mile/day still... my feet are so damn swollen and painful that walking regularly is just out of the question. Good for you for pushing through!! Hopefully the babe will come this week!

  3. You look wonderful! Seeing you makes me embarrassed for what a giant butterball I was at 38 weeks. Hope you feel well in these last couple weeks and that baby boy eases up on the kicks! :)
