38 Weeks

Okay, seriously, can I get any bigger?!?
Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 38 weeks! Only 2(ish) more to go...
Size of baby: Over 19.5 inches long and around 7 lbs
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 29 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: I'm in mostly maternity clothes because I don't want to stretch out my "real" clothes, but I still wear some regular tops (today's picture is proof)
Gender: We're having a boy! Landon Matthew. :)
Movement: This baby is very active. All the time.
Sleep: Getting comfortable in general is really difficult, so finding a way to fall asleep is no exception. Just a couple more weeks though! I do remember how much better I slept after Avery was born (yes, even interrupted sleep!), so I'm very much looking forward to that. :)
What I miss: Feeling normal. That should encompass the multitude of things I miss.
Cravings: Coke and Rice Krispie Treats (why can't I crave fruits and veggies?!?)
Symptoms: Constant back pain, tons of contractions (that lead absolutely nowhere), and OH THE HORMONES!!! My poor husband.
Best moment this week: It was a pretty good week overall, but now we're just playing the waiting game! I feel like I still have lots to do before Landon gets here, but the major stuff is pretty much done (and he now has a clean car seat!).

Oh, and for the record, I was 2.5 cm dilated and 50% effaced at my 37 week appt. on Tuesday. While I'm pretty sure that's farther than I ever got with Avery pre-induction, it still means virtually nothing. I have my 38 week appt. today, so we'll see.

How exciting! I'm pretty sure that Landon is going to be a pistol if he's that active pre-birth! :) I've heard that about boys in general, but I don't know first hand.

You're making me excited about the idea of a #2. (Not that I'm there yet. At all.) In fact, I just started Operation Weight Loss so that I'm at a better starting weight for the next pregnancy.

You look wonderful! I can't wait to see pics of the little man!
