Pregnancy #1: Week 38

This was the last picture we took before baby girl came 3 days before my due date! 

Total weight gain/loss: 41 lbs (from 116 to 157)     
Maternity clothes? Maternity pants, maternity dresses, maternity shirts, maternity everything. Honestly at this point, I hate wearing clothes and shoes. Except dresses, those are comfortable.
Stretch marks? Yes, on my bum. 😦      
Sleep: It really depends… I have to pee at least three times a night now.Sometimes the baby decides she wants to do spastic things at night if I’ve had a long day. This week, it has been touch and go for sleep. Some nights I sleep great, others I had contractions for 6 hours or so off and on only to progress into nothing.
Best moment this week: The baby has dropped. Of course I have had more pressure and have to pee all of the time now. I think I might have lost my mucus plug.
Have you told family and friends: Yes    
Miss Anything?  I miss not having to stop when talking because the baby is pushing on my lungs so I gasp for air, not sweating through everything, and being able to walk without gasping for air.
Movement: Tons! And it’s more exaggerated now. Also she keeps kicking me in some nerve in my legs that makes me go limp. I love her regular movements though, they are so large!
Food cravings: Pickles, bacon, mayo, lemonadechocolate, cold cut sandwiches, fries, meat (burgers, steak), pizza, NEW cravings: root beer, carbonated drinks, popcorn, pie.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Sometimes.
Have you started to show yet: Yes, all of the time people come up to me and ask me when I’m due. Also many are saying I look like I’m going to pop, ha.
Gender prediction: Girl
Labor Signs: She has dropped, and I definitely feel she is coming soon!
Belly Button in or out? In, but barely!  
Wedding rings on or off? Had to buy cheap rings to wear, because my wedding rings were so uncomfortable and tight, but even those aren’t really fitting any more (comfortable any way).    
Happy or Moody most of the time: Still very happy, but I am getting tired of some of the annoying symptoms. I.e. Heartburn, joint pain, and swollen feet. I went through a weird hormonal depressed/anxious thing a few days ago though… where I wanted her to come but didn’t want her to come. Freaked out for several hours and then talked to hubby and he calmed me down. 🙂
Looking forward to: Watching baby girl grow even more, meeting baby girl, and getting closer to the due date! Only 2 more weeks to go, unless she comes early! (Incidentally she did come early, but I’ll post about that later)
