How far along? 39 weeks, 2 days
Baby size: Watermelon-size still. On average, about 20 inches long and a little over 7 pounds. (I was almost 8 pounds and Justin was over 8 pounds...so we'll see!)
Total weight gain: About 23 pounds....holding steady there at this point.
Sleep: Again, good nights and bad. It seems like I'm having a BH contraction every time I wake up. I still pee constantly and often wake up hungry.
Movement: Still tons of movement. It has slowed down just a tad due to her size I'm sure. She squirms quite a bit before I go to bed also...and at this point it's pretty painful (especially low!).
Food cravings/aversions: Mainly junk food and fast food are my cravings these days.
Pregnancy Symptoms: Nothing new.
What I miss: At this point, I'm content and just taking in the last days of being pregnant because I know the end is in sight! :)
What I'm looking forward to: Again, meeting her!
Milestones: Being in my 40th week! At my last appointment on Friday, I was 1 cm (first check-up that I was dilated) and thinning (not sure %). My doc predicted this Tuesday or Wednesday if she had to guess...but I know that's never for sure! We didn't talk induction yet because she seemed so sure I would go into labor this week. However, my next appointment is Friday if nothing happens before then! (My mom was two weeks over-due with both my brother and me and had to be induced...so I'm not holding my breath. I'm trying to mentally prepare for that.)
Best moment this week: Just the feeling of seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! We also celebrated Justin's birthday this Saturday (October 29th) because his 26th birthday is tomorrow. I wanted to make sure we celebrated his birthday in case craziness started this week with me going into labor. We had a fun time at lunch with family and then celebrated with cake back at our house. That night we went just us to a movie and enjoyed the evening together.
Moments with Justin: (See above ;)
