38 weeks with Griffin

{I need y'all to know that I originally titled this post as 39 weeks. This whole scheduled birthday has me all thrown off!}

*How far along?: 38 weeks 1 day...exactly ONE week from Griffin's birthday!
*How big is your baby?: they say a watermelon & I totally believe that.
*Total weight gain?: I actually lost a pound last week. BUT, no worries, I gained it back this week. Still at 24 total!
*Sex: boy!
*Maternity clothes: Most of my actual maternity shirts are too short now. I love, love, love the Liz Lange maternity tanks because they are long!
*Stretch marks: not yet & crossing my fingers it stays that way!
 *Movement: This poor child is quickly running out of room! His foot is in my ribcage just like his brother's was & he is constantly kicking it.
  *Sleep: all I've got to say is thank God for benadryl.
*Symptoms: nothing new! Just feel huge!
*Best moment this week:The bag is packed & the carseats are installed. We are ready!I had my last OB appointment today before Griffin comes & got the lowdown. Sounds like a cake walk compared to last time!
*Food cravings: ice cream
*Labor signs: STILL no progress. Closed for business which is fine by me.
*Belly button in or out: OUT.
*What I miss: sleeping comfortably, being able to carry my toddler around without feeling like I will die, not being out of breath all the time.
*What I'm looking forward to: spoiling my first baby all week & spending time as a family of 3!! oh, and meeting that sweet little 4th member:)
