38 Weeks


How far along? 38 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Last week at my Dr. appt I hadn't gained any - which was exciting.  I'm hoping I can close out this pregnancy with a 35-37 lb. weight gain.  We'll see...
Stretch marks? still none
Sleep: not so good.  I'm getting up 3 times a night to pee and it's just getting harder to get comfortable
Best moment this week: Spending a really low key weekend just the 3 of us and knowing it was the last one.
Movement: he feels pretty cramped in there but he's still moving and groovin'
Food cravings: Fruit Loops and ice cream...not together!
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: Some really irregular contractions but I think he's pretty snug!
Belly Button in or out? out, out, out!
What I miss: sleeping comfortably, bending over, walking at a normal pace, I can tell I'm nearing the end!
What I am looking forward to: My mom gets in town Thursday and my Dad, Kathy, Shan & the girls and Keith parents all trickle in this weekend...so exciting.
Weekly Wisdom: Blah, idk
Milestones: Just getting closer and closer to meeting my sweet boy!

I had a good appointment last Thursday.  I was still at 1cm and 80% effaced.  My BP and his heart rate were good.  Everything is fine.  I actually don't have to go back this week.  I'll just see him on the 22nd to have a baby.  So exciting!

Tiff, I can't believe the time is here! In one week, we'll be looking at that sweet face and thanking God for a wonderful blessing! I can't wait to see you, Keith and my sweet Lil Man!!!

Take this week and relax, love on that Lil Man and enjoy your time - and don't forget about Cooper! :)

See you in a couple of days!
Much love to you ALL!!!!
Kathy
