Baby W: 39 Weeks

Total weight gain:   50 pounds [and SO ready to start losing]
Maternity clothes:  Yes, plus a lot of yoga pants going on these days.
Stretch marks:  None that I can see.
Sleep:  Not sleeping very well most nights. Doing a lot of tossing and turning, and I'm really hot at night... I think I'm having hot flashes. No fun!
Best moment this week:  Enjoyed the last few days of having my dad and Deb here, got a good report for this Lil Nugget, and scheduled a trip for Rachael to come visit!
Miss anything?:   Moving around easily. Everything is more difficult with a huge belly and an extra 50 pounds.
Movement:  The movements become stronger but smaller each week because there isn't so much extra room in there now, but I think the baby is trying to stretch out sometimes. Maybe he/she should just come out to play! 
Food cravings:   Nightly dessert, but otherwise no.
Anything make you queasy or sick?:  Nope

Aches and pains:   Round ligament stretching once in a while, but otherwise general aches from being such a chunker these days!
Gender prediction:  I don't know, but I'm excited to find out! 
Labor signs:   An occasional contraction, but very few.
Belly button in or out?:   Mostly flat
Wedding rings on or off?:   The cheap-o is still on.
Happy or Moody most of the time?:   Happy
Most looking forward to:   Meeting this little one!! AND my mom and brother come this week!


  1. Sooo exciting! Any day now! Woohoo! Best wishes for a quick and easy (and pain free.. ha!) delivery. Can't wait to see pics of that sweet baby!! Oh, and totally jealous that you have no stretch marks.. ugh.

  2. Thanks Grace!! And about the stretch marks... I may find some once I can finally see the bottom half of my belly again. But let's hope not!
