38 Weeks- AHHHHH!

I am seriously in shock that we are 38 weeks...
I no joke sometimes forget HOW PREGNANT I AM...
{until I look down}
or I get some nice crampy feelings...
Then I remember...
I HAVE TO PUSH THIS LITTLE SUCKER OUT....
IN 2 WEEKS OR LESS...
Talk about a little bit of stress... haha
GOOD STRESS...
but stress nonetheless....
BUT....
I CANNOT WAIT TO MEET HIM!!!

Time for the weekly questions...

How far along are you? 
38 weeks...eeeek! 

Total weight gain: 
31 lbs....Excited to soon be nearing the end...

How big is baby?:  
Jude is somewhere near 7lbs and 19inches...
Stay under 8 buddy!;)

Maternity clothes: 
No lol but it's getting pretty unflattering! 
Thankfully I haven't left the house much hahah

Stretch marks?:  
No more than what I received from V&L

Sleep?: 
Random bouts... 
Best moment this week?:
Packing the bags...
knowing that he will be coming home in the little outfit I packed...
{okay I lied they aren't officially in the bag but they are on the counter in a pile}

Movement?: 
Lots and LOTS!
It is pretty painful at times...

Food cravings?:
I gave up sweets for Lent {along with facebook...bad idea haha}
Anyways sweets are what I want now...
I made cake balls for our Potty Party this weekend and it was so HARD
not to eat one...

Food aversions?:
None really

Labor signs?: 
More braxton hicks...
Leakage lol
Belly button in or out?: 
Still in!

What I miss: 
My body...and I could use a glass of wine!:)

What I'm looking forward to: 
Meeting Jude!:)

What I'm not looking forward to: 
Transition period (7-9cm)
We have been talking a lot about the hardest part and it was that
wonderful transition period...
Just trying to mentally prepare myself for that....
UGH

Milestone: 
I had a different midwife and she CHECKED ME...
{last week the one said they wouldn't check me until labor...}
Anyways I was glad to hear we are at 3cm...
Now all I have to focus on is 7 MORE cm! 
Much better than envisioning the entire bagel {hahahah}
Now I just have to add a can of pop to my banana! 
It could still be the full 2 weeks til we meet him but I am just glad something
is happening down there...:)
About to pop face haha...
Until next week!
xoxo


PS My belly pic from last week was featured today on Birth Stories On Demand...

  5. I can't believe you gave up sweets for lent...while pregnant. Can't you start lent after you have the baby? I'm sure God won't mind.
