39 Weeks!

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

Gender: Girl!

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 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!!!
