38 Weeks...

How far along? 38 weeks

Total weight gain? I have not gained as much as I thought I would. 30 lbs. 

Stretch marks?  Still no stretch marks! 

Sleep: Sleep is harder and harder to get. I think I am starting to get used to it. I just wish my body didn't hurt so bad.

Best moment this week: My best friend Abby took some maternity pictures of me out at the orchards at This is The Place. They turned out so great!

Baby Movement: He is still so wiggly! He loves to play the drums on my ribs...especially at night when I am trying to sleep. 

Food cravings: I want to eat ice cream all the time. I think about it all day and dream about it at night.

Gender: Boy

Labor signs: I have been having steady contractions since 37 weeks. They have been about 20-15 minutes apart for a week. I was dilated to a 1 1/2 so my doctor put me on bed rest for 3 days to make it to 38 weeks. Once I made it to 38 weeks my contractions suddenly stopped (for a day). They are starting to pick up again. Hopefully tomorrow I am dilated to a 3 so we can have a baby!

Belly button in or out? Still in... well flat is more like it. I thought for sure it would poke out this time.

Getting ready for baby? Finally having everything ready. I got my car seat and stroller. I finally finished sewing my bumper and have all the decorations hanging. Everything is washed and waiting for his arrival. I have packed and repacked the diaper bag and my bags. I don't know if I could be more ready!

Looking Forward to? I can't wait until my doctors appointment tomorrow morning. I will get to find out if I will have him then or wait until the 12th.  I am dying to meet this little guy and hold him!
