38 weeks

This is my picture for the week..I noticed my shadow on the wall and had to snap a pic! 

How Far along: 38 weeks

Size of Baby: the size of a leek (according to baby center) But actually, I had an ultrasound last week and this baby was measuring 8lbs 4oz!!!

Total Weight Gain: 24 lbs. so far...I lost a few.

Gender: ??? 

Movement: The movement seems to have slowed down a little in the last few days. Maybe Pat is running out of room?

Sleep: Not great, but not terrible.

Maternity Clothes: I am so sick of maternity clothes!

Symptoms: Lots of pressure in my lower abdomen, having a hard time catching my breath (especially after I eat), swollen arms and legs, and general uncomfortableness.

Aversions: No aversions. 

Cravings: cereal

What I Miss: I think I've said this before but, I miss being able to move around like I used to.

Best Moment of the Week: I have a few: this week we traded in my Mustang for my new mom-mobile, an Acura SUV. While I was sad to see the old Mustang go, I'm loving the new car! Paul and I also went out for a little date last night at a fondue restaurant in Manitou Springs. This will probably be our last date before Pat arrives :)

Worst Moment of the Week: At my appointment this week, my doctor checked me to see if I was dilated and so far, I'm not. That was kind of disappointing. Then he did an ultrasound to check my fluid levels and measure the baby. As I said above, according to his calculations, the baby is weighing in at a whopping 8lbs. 4oz.! And it will likely gain .5 lbs. per week. Yikes! Not gonna lie, I'm a little scared. To top it all off, the ultrasound picture of the baby was the ugliest looking thing I've ever seen haha.

We are so ready to meet this baby!!!
