39 Week Update!

How far along? 39 weeks - I'm still convinced we'll be holding out to at least 40 weeks (though I wouldn't complain if it was a little earlier)!

How big is baby?  7 pounds/20 inches!  About the weight of a mini watermelon.

Weight gain? 41lbs - No weight gain since last week!

Symptoms? Swelling, definitely had a few contractions lately.

Sleep?  Yuck!  Up at least 2-3 times a night to use the bathroom.  Thank goodness for naps.

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

Movement? Slowing down some this week.

Gender?  It's a boy! 

Clothes?  Maternity Pants and maternity tops and regular cardigans. 

What I am looking forward to? Almost there.  My Dr. doesn't check your progress until 39 weeks, so we'll see how it looks Wednesday at the appointment.

What am I missing? Standing, and sitting like a normal person.

Milestones?  Your baby's waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.

Other?  We unboxed the carseat and put one base in the car.  We also put together the strollers and checked them out as well.
