How far along: 39 Weeks
Size of baby: Your baby's waiting to greet the world! She continues to build a layer of fat to help control her body temperature after birth, but it's likely she already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of her skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.
Weight gain: 37 lbs
Maternity clothes: mostly all maternity clothes besides some shirts/dresses
Movement: Yes, she has slowed a little bit - but with the doc guessing she is around 7.5 lbs - there cant be much room to move!
Sleep: Not sleeping that great..but its manageable!
Symptoms: Back pain, braxton hicks/regular contractions, swollen feet, hands and face...
Cravings: Cold water. I have always usually preferred room temperature water but lately I prefer super cold water, and as always - Sweets!!
Best Moment this week: Finding out that we get to meet our little girl on Monday! I cant
What I am looking forward to: Having this little girl on MONDAY! I am a wide range of emotions but so so excited!
This will be my last pregnancy update...as I will be induced Monday morning and will do my best to update (with a few pictures of course!) soon after we meet our little girl!!!
