38 weeks...this is going to happen soon

How far along: 38 weeks

Size of the baby:Baby is about the size of a pumpkin and weighs about 6.2 to 9.2 pounds (let's hope closer to the 6lb side of the scale) . Her head is now about the same circumference as her abdomen.

Total Weight Gain: About 22lbs

Maternity Clothes: I still haven't been buying a lot of maternity clothes, even though that's all I can wear. I did find some cute tops on sale at Target.

Gender: a GIRL!

Movement: Yes, her little butt and feet are always pushing out. I will definitely miss that.

Sleep: I don't sleep. My body hurts and it's hard to get comfortable. Plus, I think about the birthing process way too much. I know, I need to cast my fears on the Lord and He would solve this

What I miss: Bending down, sleep

Cravings: I made some Puppy Chow the other night. Love that peanut butter mixture.

Symptoms: I'm feeling a lot of pressure in my pelvis area

Best moment this week: Went to the doctor yesterday. I have dilated and thinned out. Her head is way down and it's highly unlikely she will be able to flip.

Looking forward to: Her arrival!!

Obviously the picture above reveals her name. I will tell you how we decided on the name in another post.
