How Far Along: 39 weeks!!! Only 7 DAYS until my due date!
Size of baby (from babycenter.com): It's likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.)
My baby this week (from babycenter.com): Your baby's waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it's likely he 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 his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.
Stretch Marks: I THINK they look they same as last week but honestly I try not to look at them as much these days.
Sleep: Horrible. I wake up in pain constantly or I wake up and I can't feel my hands. And at least once a night I wake up and cannot fall back asleep for about an hour.
Best Moment of the Week: Best (and most painful) moment of the week was finding out I am 1 centimeter dilated already. Although, sadly, it sounds like my OB won't induce until after 41 weeks. Soooooo far away. I was hoping for an induction as soon as my due date hit if I wanted one.
Movement: He's usually quite active each evening. Sometimes for hours. It's crazy.
Food cravings: I'm back to craving junk food. I hadn't consumed french onion dip in weeks but the other day I took down 1/2 a tub of it with chips.
What I Miss: This category will always be devoted to missing some form of movement capabilities. Not much longer and I'll have my full range of movement back once he's born!
What I'm Looking Forward To: Meeting my son!!!
Milestones: I am 1 centimeter dilated. Woopty doo! I wish I was in labor! :) Another milestone....I wore sneakers to work all this past week. :)
Emotions: Spent. I want this baby in my arms ASAP!!!!
Symptoms: Cramps during the night the last several nights. Back ache all day on Friday.
