38/39 weeks

Welp! I'm down to the last few updates (hopefully!)
Here's belly #2 (sorry for the cheesy smile)
Compared to belly #1

Pregnancy HighlightsHow Far Along: 39 weeks

Size of baby: Baby #2 is about 20 in long (about the size of a mini watermelon) and weighs about 7.25 lbs.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I was only up 1 lb both this week and last so overall I'm at 36 by their scale (I think) and 34 by mine

Clothes: Mainly dresses these days since my belly is big enough that shirts don't seem to cover everything

Gender: Team Blue.

Movement: Still makind his kick count "quota"

Sleep: Bad this last week even with meds. Brynna has been the culprit more often than not though. I wonder if she's growing again?

What I miss: Life before pregnancy. I'm so ready to be done at this point!

Cravings: none

Symptoms: Heartburn, sciatic pain and numbness down the front of my left leg, CONSTANT cx- mostly BH I think!

Moment this week: I'm up to 3+ cm dilated this week! Not sure on effacement but i was 70% last week so i assume at least that much. I'm making progress :) I'm thinking my doc is expecting sometime this week as he made sure to give me his card to have him paged if he's not on call (he didn't even bother when I had B). Yesterday I timed cx and they were anywhere from 3-10 min apart pretty much all afternoon. Still not really anything that feels like it's doing anything (aka not painful by any means), but something may be going on? We'll see. Please send labor vibes ;-)

What I'm looking forward to: Meeting this little guy.

Milestones: I guess I missed a few over the last couple weeks- more stretch marks- BOOO!! and swelling enough that I had to remove my wedding ring (DOUBLE BOO!) almost to my EDD :)

Hoping my next "weekly" update will actually be a birth story!

Ahhhhh I never stop being jealous that you're 4 weeks further along than me! I so wish I was down to the wire like you!

When you say you're "up to 3+cm this week" do you mean you're 3cm dilated???
