Bump Date - 38 Weeks

How far along: 38 Weeks!!
14 days to go till my due date!

Baby Size: The size of a leek, weighs around 6.75 pounds, and is a bit more than 19 1/2 inches long.

Weight gain:  12 pounds 
Maternity clothes: mostly all maternity, nothing new here.  Starting to miss my "normal" clothes....

Stretch marks: just at the bottom of my belly
Sleep: so so, just depends on the day (this never changes)
Gender: Baby BOY!!

Movement: all the time, doesn't matter as much what time of the day it is!  Sometimes the movement really hurts too

Best moment this week: doctor appointment once again, but I'm really ready for the BEST moment when he is finally here!
Looking forward to: HAVING THIS BABY!!

Food cravings: nothing because nothing sounds good.  My appetite is gone, nothing sounds good and I am pretty much forcing myself to eat just to eat.
  Anything making you queasy or sick: just no appetite
Labor Signs: some braxton hicks, some real contractions, lower back pain 
What I miss: feeling him move around, sometimes it hurts, but other times it's kinda cool because I am the only person who can really feel him move around.  
Nursery: DONE!!!!  Just need to get those photos taken and then show you all the nursery once he arrives!  If you all haven't noticed, I haven't announced his name at all and I did that on purpose.  Once he is born, you all will get to know his name. :) 

Belly Button in or out? flat with my stomach

Wedding rings on or off? On!  

Mood: cranky, sleepy, irritated, emotional, anxious, stick a fork in me, I am done being pregnant.....(nothing new)

  • 14 days....THANK GOD! 
  • Seriously though, I am ready to be done with being pregnant.  I am exhausted, cranky, tired, hurting, and just am ready to meet this baby boy!
  • I would be SO rich if I collected a nickel for everyone who has the following conversation with me: (ps, I have this conversation every morning with every single one of my co-workers....)
    • Hi Jessica, how are you?
    • Oh I'm good, just tired and ready to have this baby.
    • He will be here before you know it.  Just let him cook a little longer.
    • ....
  • Please stop telling me when I should and shouldn't have my baby....I realize the longer I wait to have him, the better, but I am ready to have him and he will be OK if I have him early.
  • Come on water, just break for me!!
  • My doctor said he would induce labor at 39 weeks.  It's a tempting choice that I probably won't choose.  If I did choose that, that would be NEXT WEEK!!
  • How do you choose your induction date??  That's just so weird to think about....
  • I know that if haven't had this baby by September 11th (the due date) that I will choose the induction for no later than September 15th.  
  • My yoga ball is my best friend right now.  I have one at work and one at home and spend a good 2-4 hours a day on it.  :)
