39 Weeks


How far along: 39 Weeks
Total weight gain: 28 pounds
Maternity clothes: Yep...I have worn the same dress for the last three days..running out of things that fit haha
Stretch marks: nope, I feel very lucky!
Sleep: Been sleeping pretty good this week!
Best moment this week: This morning I went to the doctor for my 39 week appointment and found out I am going to be induced tomorrow!!!!!  I am beyond excited and anxious and nervous and aaaahhhhhh!!!!
Miss anything: Being comfortable ;)
Movement: She is still moving a lot!  She pokes her little foot up under my left ribs and it looks really funny!
Food cravings: Definitely still sweets!  I have had two dozen baby bites this week...and miraculously have not gained any weight??  Weird, but I'll take it haha!
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope
Gender: Girl
Labor signs: I am having some pretty good contractions right now actually, but they are not consistent.  I am being induced at 6:30 tomorrow morning so baby girl can hang on until then!
Symptoms: Is feeling like a beached whale a symptom?? Immobility like no other, lots of pelvic pressure and some hip pain.  I cannot believe by this time tomorrow I could be holding my baby girl in my arms!
Belly button in or out: Flat as a pancake ;)
Wedding rings on or off: still on!
Happy or moody most of the time: So incredibly happy I could burst into tears...and maybe I already have a couple of times today ;)
Looking forward to: TOMORROW!!! I am so excited for the whole experience!

To my sweet Olivia Jane
Tonight as I make the final preparations to meet you tomorrow I am overwhelmed with love and joy.  I never knew you could love someone so much that you have never even seen.  From the moment I found out I was expecting you I have thanked God for you and prayed over your life.  You are going to be one special little girl.  You already have so many people who love you and I am so thankful for that. Most of all Daddy and I are so excited.  I feel so blessed to be your mommy and I promise to always try to be the best I can for you.  You have already brought so much happiness into my life!  Tomorrow begins our journey together, my new little best friend!  Mommy loves you more than you will ever know!
