39 Weeks!

Pregnancy: 39 Weeks. AKA- the final countdown....

Weight Gain:  up 1 more pounds as of Wednesday- total weight gain 30 pounds. My midwife said i did real good with my weight gain (HIGH FIVE!)

Next appointment:   Next week at 40 weeks. Wed. 10/10 at 12:30pm.  If baby hasn't come by then.  They made sure to remind me to call and cancel my appt. if i give birth... ummmm, couldn't they figure that out??

Sleep:  Sleep is pretty uncomfortable, but again- only when i change positions and get up to go to the bathroom.  One more weekend to sleep in before my due date.  And i will be sleeping as much as possible.
Gender: ?????????????????? 

Names: Still no boy name.  so it's gonna be a boy.

Feeling/ Symptoms: Got checked out at my appt on Wednesday.  I was 1 cm dilated, and 70% effaced! So i don't really know what all that means, but no labor yet. Although this morning i had a bit of a close call.  I had a pain in my side and thought it was labor- but it was pretty constant and didn't come in waves. Then it went away.  It was a pretty hilarious sight, Andrew and i starring at each other- me: trying to breathe and figure out what to do, Chai chewing on a bone sitting next to me and looking at me wondering what was going on.....   Any way, i felt better after a while, got up and drove to work.. (for my last day before maternity leave!)
Movement: Nice sharp movements over here, there ain't much room left in there so the movements are becoming pretty dramatic. Entire stomach ROLLS

Belly: I measured 39 weeks this time.  I guess that means the baby didn't drop?  who knows. 

Maternity Clothes:  I wear 2 skirts, and one pair of pants and rotate between them, and it's COLD out there now.  high of 50s this weekend. I am glad i'll be done with work and just loungin in my pj's.

Stretch Marks: sigh.....

Best Moment Last Week:  Hmmmm.. shoulda written stuff down, i already forgot what i did last week.  Watched Season one of Downton Abbey and started season 2.  Watched Season Premiere of Dexter. OMG. SO GOOD.  It is sad my best moments always involve tv?  Oh well.   Not much else happening over here.  In fact, I am looking forward to watching more this weekend!

Nursery:  Nursery is all done!  Here is the link to seem some pictures from my phone of the room.  click HERE - andrew's sister gave us another decal tree- so I'm excited to add that to the decal birds above the crib, hopefully that'll fill in the blank spaces.

Looking forward to:  Being done with work. Having a Monday to just sleep in and relax.. that is if the baby doesn't come this weekend.  eeeep!

What the professionals are saying:

How your baby's growing:
Your baby's waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it's likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.

Baby is the size of what fruit/ Vegetable?  I guess its a watermelon from here on out...
