38 Weeks

YAY for me!! I actually posted a bump pic on time...thanks to my husband being home sick to take the picture. I am pushing 39 weeks and praying that little man makes his arrival sooner rather than later seeing that my Dr said at 36 weeks he was already about 7-7.5lbs. I was actually hoping he would arrive yesterday but that didn't happen. I have a thing with odd numbers....I don't like them so I really hope that he is born on an even digit day. I know, that's trivial and doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things but if I could choose, his birthday would be on an even digit. The exception being today, the 17th since it's St. Patrick's Day and the 19th because it's my Mother's Birthday. That would be special. The Hubs & I are both sick with a sinus infection so that sucks but it hasn't really slowed us down that much. My showers are over and I will post soon on them. We are so so blessed and this little fella is going to be spoiled rotten. I can't wait to hold him in my arms. Anywho, Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you and yours! Enjoy.


Southern Theory 38 Weeks





How far along?  
38 weeks 
Total weight gain/loss? 
too darn much - about 40 pounds and not looking forward to giving up my pizza.
 Maternity clothes?
 More like whatever I can fit around me at this point
Stretch marks? 
yep yep yep - I'm calling them my battle scars
Sleep? 
Ha! Yeah on good nights or when I can catch a nap. I think last night I had 5 pillows strategically placed in a comfy pyramid WITH my snoogle on top. I'm getting pretty freaking creative these days. The Hubs snoring has been a struggle too but I'm not going to complain much on that.
Best moment this week? 

Well, we just installed his carseat. I guess we could say Most Interesting moment this week. Glad we didn't wait on doing that till we were leaving the hospital....
Miss anything? 
A hardcore, muscles aching, drenched in sweat, on the verge of vomiting, can't get one more rep workout. The gym is calling my name people!
Movement? 
Oh you know, TONS but he won't budge from where he is at. Seems pretty content for now.
Food cravings?
 Meh, not really anything lately.
Anything making you queasy or sick? 
nada
Have you started to show yet? 
yep, obviously
Gender?
 boy
Symptoms?
SWOLLEN FEET- 24/7 swollen ankles and feet. They are either swollen or Hella Swollen. Nothing helps much.
Labor Signs? 
Braxton Hicks and all sorts of other pains. Dr. said he had dropped at my appointment last week. We stripped the membranes again but still no sign he is ready to make his debut.
Belly Button in or out?
Outty, yo.
Wedding rings on or off? 
Off sadly. However my gracious mom has loaned me her first set from when she & my dad were married. Her fingers are just a tad bigger than mine and they fit perfectly!
 Happy or Moody most of the time?
Pretty much happy. Just an even shorter tolerance for stupid. That sounds horrible I know but it's honestly the way I feel. And sorry you can't be mad at me for it either-it's the pregnancy hormones fault
Looking forward to?
 His arrival!!
