(almost) 40 weeks

How far along? Currently 39 weeks, 3 days
Total weight gain/loss: 37 lbs
Maternity clothes? yeps
Stretch marks? nope!
Sleep: still sleeping great! Hope that can continue until she gets here :)
Best moment this week: Got to go out for one last dinner with my hubby for his birthday on Saturday.  Might be the last for a little while!

Miss Anything? Getting sooo close to being able to have a nice glass of wine.

Movement: Always! She's still head down on the left side, been there for months- just waiting to come out!
Food cravings: All sugar, naturally. Trying to limit myself.  I haven't wanted to eat very large meals lately- or make anything in general because I'm tired and can't decide what I want to eat!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, just can't eat a whole lot in one sitting without it feeling like it wants to come back up.
Have you started to show yet: Massive belly
Gender prediction: Still a girl.  
Labor Signs: A few contractions per day but nothing noteworthy yet!
Belly Button in or out? Flat/out.  My belly is itchy again this week like it was about a month ago.  She's getting even bigger!
Wedding rings on or off? I'm still wearing my wedding and anniversary band but have taken off my engagement ring.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly moody, but getting very happy and excited to meet this girl!
Looking forward to: Can't wait to see what she looks like! I'm thinking white blonde like my nephew :)  Brooks says brown hair and brown eyes like daddy !

37 weeks

How far along? 37 weeks (actually almost 38 as I write this)
Total weight gain/loss: 33 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yep.  I just want to be comfortable these days!
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep:  Doing good, getting up once a night to pee.
Best moment this week:  It's Christmas week!  We're baking up a storm, listening to Christmas music and watching lots of holiday specials.
Miss Anything? Can not WAIT to have a glass of cold white wine.  
Movement: Oh yes.  She likes to do these big stretches around 11pm.  I don't remember Brooks ever doing's like she is trying to push her little feet/elbows/knees out of my belly.  Ouch!
Food cravings: I want ALL THE SWEETS.  Trying really hard to restrain myself!  Still loving quiche and kale chips, as well as chicken caesar salads [power kale chicken caesar from Panera is my current fave]
Anything making you queasy or sick: No
Have you started to show yet: I can no longer bend over.  Brooks has heard me say this so much that now his excuse to not put his own shoes on is that he "can't bend over to do it"  HA.
Gender prediction: Girl :)
Labor Signs: I've had a few pains here and there but no contractions, I don't think!
Belly Button in or out? It's pretty much flat.
Wedding rings on or off? Still on! I can't believe it.  Making sure to drink lots of water to stay hydrated and keep swelling down.  
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty moody, per usual.
Looking forward to:  Christmas this week and then baby time!  I can't wait to see what she looks like.  I'm thinking she'll be a blonde :)
