38 Weeks: Tick Tock...


How far along? 38 Weeks...Baby's due date, June 20th, is right around the corner!
Baby Size: The size of a pumpkin...and I believe it!
Total weight gain: 27 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yes and no...this dress is non-maternity, but clearly looks different on a preggo belly than what it was intended for!
Stretch marks? Still in the clear...keeping my fingers {and toes!} crossed!
Sleep: Other than shifting from side to side and getting up to use the loo, it's really not too bad.  
Best moment this week: Getting everything wrapped up at work.  It's such a relief to know that things are as squared away as they can be.  It's very surreal to be on maternity leave...it just means he'll be here any day now!
Miss Anything? There are many things, but now I'm starting to think about how I'll probably miss this belly of mine once he gets here.  I've really enjoyed being pregnant!
Movement: Yes in waves and rolls.  I keep thinking it's his way of saying "Mom, I love you, but I'm running out of room in here!"
Food cravings: Lots of sweets...fruit popsicles, pop tarts, Juicy Squeezes, cereal...and fruit!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really!
Gender: Sweet little bouncing boy! 
Labor Signs: Not really...I've had some lower cramping, and possible some Braxton Hicks at night...along with some other TMI things, but nothing consistent.
Symptoms: Lower belly and back pain...like nerve pain.  I'll be walking along and he'll hit a nerve on the inside right side of my leg and it's jolting!  Also, some acid reflux at night and I think I'm officially "waddling" now.  Lovely.
Belly Button in or out? Still at a halfie status.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Happy, excited, and anxious!  Just really trying to take it ALL in this last week or so!  
Looking forward to: His arrival of course!!  I'm hoping to get down to nesting this week...finish the nursery, buy last minute baby items, finish packing our bags, read, walk, pamper and relax.  

Also, I thought it would be fun to take a look back...it's funny to me how proud I was of my "big bump" at 18 and 28 weeks.  My how things have changed!  ;)
