38 weeks

*How far along?: 38 weeks...9 1/2 months!
*How big is your baby?: still a large watermelon! ...he will be a watermelon until he gets here:)
*Total weight gain?: at my Wednesday appointment I had not gained! woohoo! maybe I have stabilized? I'm sitting at 24lbs total.
*Sex: BOY! Grayson Benjamin:)
*Maternity clothes: I am becoming a whiny baby about maternity clothes.
*Stretch marks: 2 tiny ones where I didn't use my tummy rub. so yep, now I am REALLY lathering it on! I want to buy that new mederma stretch mark cream & go ahead and start using it!
*Movement: He is OUT of room so whenever he moves it shakes my whole stomach. He is still up really high and his kicking my rib.
*Sleep: I'm getting good practice at the whole "not sleeping" thing.
*Best moment this week: I feel like the nursery is actually ready for a baby!
*Food cravings: my stomach has no room for food.
*Labor signs: BH contractions are a little more frequent. No real contractions. I go back on Tuesday and am praying that something has happened down there! I mean, really, my body needs to kick this baby out.
*Belly button in or out: my belly button officially came out of the closet.
*What I miss: being able to bend over. red, red wiiiinnnnneeeeeeee.
*What I'm looking forward to: labor!!!! I keep reading my "what to expect" September message board on my phone & everyone else is having babies. I am a smidge jealous! I just want him to be here. I'm impatient..can you tell?...
I'll leave you with a picture of our oldest, Jack, perched on his favorite spot. That is all.

I just ran across your blog! So cute! I am 38 weeks and 2 days along today (due 9/20). I can totally relate to this post! What sleep? I've been up all hours of the night and just can't get comfortable. I have a rotation between my bed and the couches that I cycle through each night trying to get some sleep in. I've gained a total of 27lbs but was happy when I didn't gain any from week 37 to week 38...hopefully it has finally plateaued! Good luck! Sitting and waiting is the hard part...but I am right there with you (in NC)!
