40 weeks +

I'm really, really, REALLY hoping this is my last weekly update ;-) We will see at my appt later today!
Belly #2 (taken last night)
 Belly #1
So here's the comparison pics:

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 40 weeks (plus a few days)

Size of baby: Baby #2 is about 21 in long (about the size of a small pumpkin) and weighs about 7.75-8 lbs.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Haven't been weighed since my last update, but I think I'm up another lb? So overall 35 by my score and 37 by the doc's (that's my story and I'm sticking to it) ;-)

Clothes: maternity dresses mostly

Gender: still a nameless Team Blue.

Movement: I'm noticing he does a TON of moving about 8pm, more than any other time of day.

Sleep: It's been okay. I'm still taking unisom every night, but hopefully those days are NUMBERED!

What I miss: Seeing and being able reach my feet. I totally need a pedicure!

Cravings: sweet stuff again. I've been making a ton of zuchinni bread (or as B calls it- "bikini cake" since people keep giving me gargantuan zuchinni. It's helped ease the craving ;-)

Symptoms: Heartburn, sciatic pain and numbness down the front of my left leg, CONSTANT cx- mostly BH, the linea negra finally popped up, but it's much more faint this time around. I keep getting this really weird nerve pain on the inside of both legs in my groin area. I assume it's because little man is sitting in a weird spot.

Moment this week: Nada. I'm just ready to give this kid is eviction notice!

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

Milestones: Made it to my EDD and then passed it right by... 41 weeks officially tomorrow. Wish me luck? Oh, also I had a birthday last week... LOL that counts as a milestone, right? I can't even tell you how much I hoped little man was going to make his debut that day!
