38 weeks

how far along? 38 weeks ~ length of a leek
total weight gain: 33 pounds
maternity clothes: yes & no, i find myself re-wearing the same outfit a lot these days :)
stretch marks: nope, almost in the clear! although i wouldn't mind a "battle scar" or two
sleep: this week i've been sleeping sitting up and it has helped a lot with the discomfort // still getting up every other hour or so to use the restroom
best moments this week: spent some time with my sweet husband, realizing it would be our last weekend "alone" for pretty much ever. though i have a feeling we won't mind that too much once we see her gorgeous face
missing anything? not much
movement: still has slowed down a bit due to all the contraction excitement
food cravings: the usuals (cereal, mint & chip ice cream, pizza) adding oatmeal this week! it's been so yummy & cozy in the mornings
anything making you sick or queasy? chicken smell
labor signs? 38 weeks & 6 days update: dialted 1 cm, mini's head is at about a 0 (basically she can't get any lower without starting to come out!), and i'm about 75% effaced. doctor said we better go out to dinner because it may be our last chance for awhile. :) #freakingout
symptoms: contractions, contractions, contractions! and my feet have doubled in size, i guess it's because her head is down and pushing on the veins that flow to my feet // this is happening!
belly button in or out? half way out, the rest is flat
wedding rings on or off? engagement band off, wedding band on
pedicure color: OPI "visions of love" it's a pretty maroonish red for Christmas time. thank you to my sweet friend for treating me!
mood: scared, anxious, excited...a little bit of everything
looking forward to: family starting to arrive! // and seeing jordan hold her for the first time...i'm going to lose it
