38 Week Update!

How far along? 38 weeks - I'm pretty sure we'll be holding out to at least 40.

How big is baby?  6.8 pounds/19.5 inches!  About the length of a leek.

Weight gain? 41lbs I've gained quite a bit in the last few weeks, the Dr. says it's all water weight given the 90+ degree temperatures we're having.

Symptoms? Exhaustion, swelling, heartburn, a few Braxton Hicks.

Sleep?  Ok.  Definitely getting worse.  Up to use the bathroom at least 2x/night.

Food cravings? Basically anything cold, lots of popsicles and ice. 

Movement? Still lots, I took a movie the other day and it's rather amusing to watch.

Gender?  It's a boy! 

Clothes?  Maternity Pants and maternity tops and regular cardigans. 

What I am looking forward to? All done with work, now to relax and get some things done.

What am I missing? Somedays, just the sense of feeling 'normal'.

Milestones?  He has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold his hand for the first time! His organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb. Wondering what color your baby's eyes will be? If he's born with brown eyes, they'll likely stay brown. If he's born with steel gray or dark blue eyes, they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time he's 9 months old.

Other?  Finally hung up the pictures in the nursery and took some photos to share.  I also have my bag packed.
