39 weeks

hurry up, baby!

How far along: 39 weeks 2 days
size of baby: a small watermelon
Gender: baby boy
Weight gain: 19 pounds
Maternity clothes: lots of leggings and whatever is comfortable. I actually sold what I'm not using anymore to Clothes Mentor. Do I sound ready or what?
Stretch marks: the same
Belly button in or out: pretty flat...on a positive note, it's easy to clean!
Sleep: up a lot to switch sides, use the restroom, drink some water, or put in eye drops. I feel like I see every other hour on the clock. Peyton is sleeping better now that my mom is here.
Best moment this week: We had a great Mother's day and have enjoyed having my mom here. She's helped me so much with Peyton, laundry, and last minute things for baby. Josh and I got several boxes packed yesterday which is a good feeling. Peyton's last day of school is tomorrow and my Bible study ended on Friday. We made dinner for 2 couples with new babies and got to have Peyton's buddies Jack & Paul over for dinner on Sunday.
Worst moment this week: Just kind of bummed that he's not here yet.
Miss anything: not really...our life is kind of crazy with baby coming, Josh finishing intern year, buying a house, preparing to move, and planning a trip to Texas for a wedding. It's stressful but we're excited for new things!
Movement: Baby is very powerful and when he does move, it moves my whole stomach. I enjoy watching it and putting my hands on my belly.
Cravings or aversions: no change. I've been eating a lot of peanut butter M&M's and baked Cheetos lately. I've slowed my roll on Oreo smoothies at the gym. (Even though they always sound good.)
Symptoms: Starting to feel some pain when I walk and I'm having more and more contractions. Just nothing consistent. I try to bounce on my birthing ball a few times a day to get things going. I've also been doing squats and stretching.
Looking forward to: I'm hopeful we'll have some good news at my appointment on Friday and maybe a holiday weekend baby!

Here's a few pics from our maternity shoot. I'm so happy we decided to take them!
