Baby M Update: Week 38

Pretty sure Baby M POPPED once again! 
If she doesn’t come soon, I think my stomach may fall off my body! lol 

How far along? 38 weeks
Total weight gain: 25 lbs. 
Maternity clothes? Yep, I’ve pretty much been wearing all maternity clothes but I do have some regular tank tops that I can still fit in.
Stretch marks?
Unfortunately, in the last week, I have gotten quite a few. She is definitely pushing out more now causing them to pop up by the day. I’m not very pleased! lol
Sleep: Been sleeping well. Thanks goodness!

Best moment this week: Getting to Skype with Travis for the first time!! 🙂 It was awesome seeing and hearing him at the same time. Also, we got our lawn completely resodded and it looks beautiful!
Miss Anything? Still Travis! Being pain free. Being able to function like a normal person.
Movement: Yep! She’s still moving quite a bit but I have noticed in the past couple of days that she isn’t moving as much as she has been in past weeks. She must be getting quite smooshed now!
Food cravings: I didn’t really crave anything this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing food wise but I had a few days of just not feeling well.
Gender: GIRL!!
Labor Signs: Found out at my appt. on Tuesday, that I am dilated to 2 cm and was already 50% effaced which surprised both me and my midwife. I have been having contractions but nothing terrible.
I go back tomorrow to find out if I’ve progressed anymore!
Belly Button (in or out): I guess we’ll call it out. It is ever so slightly in but has been like this for weeks now so I don’t see it getting any more flat.
Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: The usual back and round ligament pain, and shortness of breath.Unfortunately, my swollen gums are back as well.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I was happy this week. Yeah! 🙂
Looking forward to: My next appointment to see what progress has been made this week. Of course, being so close to my due date now, I’m getting anxious for Baby M’s arrival! Can’t believe it can happen any day now! CRAZY!! I can’t wait to see her little face and see what she looks like!
