40 Weeks!!


Happy due date to us!!!!  Yes, I'm not looking too hot today...I'm at home this week anyway, so this pretty much describes how I've looked all week - no makeup, Noah's t-shirts, and shorts.  Aren't you jealous of Noah? :)

And no, no sign of baby yet.  See below for further explanation...

Size of Baby: No way to know for sure, but she's (according to Babycenter) about 7 1/2 pounds and around 20 inches.  We'll know a lot more tomorrow!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: As of Monday, I was up 24 pounds at the doctor...so we'll stick to that.

Maternity Clothes: Barely any fit anymore.  Noah's t-shirts are my friend. :)

Gender: It's a GIRL!  Emma Ramey

Belly Button In/Out: Still just a little out.  She thinks it's fun to kick it way out though...it's kind of entertaining to watch!
 Stretch Marks: Besides the belly button scar and "the line," nothing!
Labor Signs: Barely anything.  Some contractions (I've had a few this morning that have been a little stronger than normal), but nothing big.

Movement: Definitely slower...I just figure she's out of room.  I've been doing kick counts just to make sure, and everything's fine.  Sprite still gets her going though...if I ever get worried, I can drink a little and she's starts moving a ton!

Sleep: Waking up a few times a night to change positions still, but besides that still really good!

What I miss: See previous posts...all of that. :)

What I am looking forward to: This girl coming to meet us!!!

Cravings/Aversions: Nothing in particular, just food.  I can't really eat much right now, so I've been kind of a "grazer" lately...eating all the time, but not really that much.

Symptoms: A new one this week...acid reflux.  Not fun.  I've heard of pregnant women getting this, and I didn't realize I had it until I described it to Noah and he told me that this is what it was.  It's been waking me up at night!  So no more spicy food for me.  Besides that, just unable to move, achy all the time, some Braxton Hicks.

Best Moment This Week: Getting some rest!  I'll admit, I'm starting to go a little stir crazy, but I'm really glad I was able to rest for a few days before D-Day!

Appointment is at 8:45 in the morning...I'll keep y'all updated!
