38 weeks

Oops! Forgot to post this last week! Pregnancy brain!

I'm feeling tired and puffy...can you tell?! Ha!

How far along are you?
38 weeks!! Still having a hard time believing that could be here any day now!

How big is Baby?
He's the size of a pumpkin...appropriate for this (maybe) October baby - His head is about the same circumference as his abdomen - His head could be covered in an inch of hair - He has a firm grasp - His organs have all matured and he's ready to be born...I hope!

Weight Gain? 
32 lbs.
We finally bought a scale so I can keep up with weight loss after baby. I fluctuate between 1-2 lbs. each day. I think it really just depends on when I'm weighing myself and what I've eaten. Of course, I always like the early morning weigh-ins the best!

 Gender?
a boy!

Maternity Clothes?
Yep...same ol' same ol'
I am getting pretty tired of this pink striped shirt though!

Stretch Marks?
Yes :( a few on the bottom of my belly since about 35 weeks

 Sleep?
It's been so-so. I am so tired all the time, but just can't get comfortable in bed or keep having to get up for the bathroom...which is quite a task with this massive belly!

Symptoms?
A little bit of nausea every day - I've been having some sharp pains off and on since Saturday, but have no idea what they are. I'm thinking Crew is just on some nerves or something when he's moving around. - My face has been breaking out again

Movement?
He is stretching and pushing around a lot now

Food Cravings/Aversions?
Craving apple-flavored things

Labor Signs?
I don't think so?

Belly Button in or out?
Out

What I miss?
Being able to move around quickly/easily!

What I am looking forward to?
Meeting our son!

Best moment of the week?
Today was my last day of work...officially on maternity leave! I'm so relieved and excited to just focus on having Crew now.

I’m feeling?
READY. I still can't believe we'll be meeting our baby any day now! I'm trying to use these few days off work (pre-baby) to cross off all our to-do list items.

Doctor’s report?
At my appointment on Thursday my doctor decided that if Crew does not come on his own next week, then we will induce on Thursday, Oct. 3rd. I cannot believe we are less than a week away.

So appropriate that he's the size of a pumpkin. Just in time for fall :)
