How Far Along: 40 weeks!!! MY DUE DATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Size of baby (from babycenter.com): It's hard to say for sure how big your baby will be, but the average newborn weighs about 7 1/2 pounds (a small pumpkin) and is about 20 inches long.
My baby this week (from babycenter.com): His skull bones are not yet fused, which allows them to overlap a bit if it's a snug fit through the birth canal during labor. This so-called "molding" is the reason your baby's noggin may look a little conehead-ish after birth. Rest assured — it's normal and temporary.
Stretch Marks: I think they have slowed their onset. Hopefully this is the last week for them to grow!
Sleep: Well, since the last blog, about 1/2 of the nights have been filled with nightly contractions. Thursday night they were pretty intense but there were only about two. Last night I had none. :(
Best Moment of the Week: Making it to today. I can't believe I have made it to my due date!
Movement: I tell Mike he just wants to come out. He's so cramped in there. Poor little guy. His movements are reflective of his lack of space.
Food cravings: Nothing much this week. Although I keep eat each meal like it will be my last (aka enough to hold me over during labor). I had Mexican on Tuesday and Thai on Thursday! I can't believe I only gained 1 lb this week.
What I Miss: My sanity. I just want him to be born. I can't concentrate on anything else.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Meeting my son!!!
Milestones: Reaching my due date today!!
Emotions: Cranky and impatient. Enough said.
Symptoms: Cramps during the night a few nights here and there.
