38 Weeks

How far along: 38 Weeks
Total weight gain: 28 pounds
Maternity clothes: Yep
Stretch marks: So far, no!  I guess my religious slathering of oil and lotion is working :)
Sleep: Better than last week, I am finally getting over being sick and it helps to be able to breathe through your nose when you sleep.
Best moment this week: I had a pretty spectacular Tuesday!  I went to Body Step and did the whole class, although there was some major huffing and puffing going on.  Then I went to my best bud's house to lay out before our supper club.  I can't wait for my sweet baby girl to meet my friends and be apart of our festivities!
Miss Anything:  I mentioned that I did Body Step on Tuesday and I am still paying for it!!!  My hips are ridiculously sore!!  Dang hormones loosening all of my ligaments!  SO I would say I miss my pre-pregnancy abilities most this week...from being able to work out hard to tie my shoes to get up off of the couch without assistance...
Movement: This little ninja is still kicking..well, mostly nudging and pushing, but still a lot of movement every day.
Food Cravings: There is a local bakery called Pastry Arts..it is like heaven on earth.  They make these little bite sized cakes called baby bites that I am totally obsessed with!  I have had 2 dozen this week...It's my birthday week, I'll eat nothing but cake if I want to ;)
Anything making you queasy or sick: I had a mad craving for Milos yesterday and it was delicious, but I had heartburn/reflux all night last night and today...so sad.
Gender: girl
Labor signs: Still at 1 cm dilated and no signs of labor at all.  I think this little babe is going to have to be forced out on her due date.  I originally said I did not want to be induced, but if she decides to be late to the party I might have to let them help her along :)
Symptoms: Some rib pain, not nearly as bad as it was..or maybe I am just used to it.  Honestly, I feel like a very lucky pregnant lady, I have no swelling, blood pressure is great, still have energy and I don't feel that huge.  I am so ready for her to come, but I can definitely hang on for another two weeks.
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: on
Happy or moody most of the time: Very happy!  It is probably the hormones, but I find myself just thinking sometimes about how truly blessed I am.  I have the best husband in the whole world and I love him with all of my heart.  I cannot wait for us to be parents together!  I have an amazing family that makes me laugh every day and the most wonderful group of friends a girl could ask for!  There is your sap for the day ;)
Looking forward to: Just relaxing and spending as much time with the hubs as I can before baby girl decides to make her entrance!

My sweet friends at our special Birthday supper club!
