How far along? 39 weeks as of this last Thursday.
Baby Size: As big as a watermelon! I certainly believe it because I feel like it!
Total weight gain: 40 lbs. And I'm still hungry ALL the time.
Maternity clothes? It's quite comical how most of my maternity shirts can't even cover this belly anymore!
Stretch Marks? I think I might have one, but it's so hard to tell. I know this is the time to get them. Maybe you can tell more once you've delivered and everything starts shrinking?
Sleep: I've been experiencing more rough nights this week. I've been waking up hungry or with cramping and contractions and can't get back to sleep.
Best moment this week: Having my midwife appointment and just talking over all the last minute things with her. Everything is feeling so real. I'm really going to have this baby! I so look forward to the birth we are planning and having her there.
Miss Anything? Being able to sing with my full voice and all my breath. I love singing and it's hard not to be able to sing like I used to.
Movement: Still moving around a lot!
Food cravings: I'm loving fruit and lots of light things, because the weather has turned hot suddenly (80-90 degrees).
Gender Prediction: As my husband says, we feel it's a girl, but we think it's a boy. I really feel like it's a girl, but think most likely it's a boy (because of his family's track record with having boys!).
Symptoms: More Braxton hicks contractions, but no "real" contractions.
Mood: I'm in good spirits, but I really hope baby comes soon, because I feel like my energy levels are plummeting with each day. I can't believe how heavy I feel, and I really want to be energized for the labor.
Looking forward to: The times I have planned with friends this week to keep me busy and occupied.
