I took this pic before work on the day I turned 38 weeks, last wednesday

How far along? 38 weeks 6 days ( I know I'm way behind this week and even though I will be 39 weeks tomorrow here we are with the 38 week post :)

Baby's size? about the size of a Leek

Weight Gain? 24-25 lbs 

Maternity clothes? I don't have many clothes that fit comfortably anymore, I pretty much live in maxi dresses and lounge clothes, i have stuff that fits but when I sit they dig into my belly and its so uncomfortable

Stretch marks? not a single one 

Belly button in or out? definitely out...we are DONE according to the belly button

Sleep? I love sleeping, although I wakeup about 4 or 5 times a night to pee because I get so thirsty that I drink water through the night this causes me to have to pee more, I try not to drink water but then all I can think about is how thirsty I am...I guess this will be good practice for once baby is here and I have to wake up that much anyways

Foods I am loving? Sprite, fruit, candy, cereal

Foods I am hating? nothing really

Best moment this week? my last day of work for 12 weeks

Movement? a wild man!! He moves A LOT.  I love feeling him move though

Symptoms? I have been having some cramping that feels like menstrual cramps and more frequent Braxton Hicks contractions, though none of them remain consistent and they aren't painful, also some days I have heartburn, but its so random I cant really predict what will cause it or when I will get it.  I have also been a lot more tired lately but oh man the nesting thing has been on overdrive, its like Im tired but yet have a million things I HAVE to do or my head will explode

Gender? a lil boy, Landon Matthew

What I miss? drinking wine with dinner

What I'm looking forward to? meeting this sweet baby!! He will be here within the next 7 days!! If I don't go into labor on my own I will be induced next tuesday so either way I only have at most a week of waiting.  At my appointment yesterday I was almost 2 cm dilated and she said my cervix is really soft but didn't give me a %, baby is also at -2 station so at least he is dropping into the pelvis some

Weekly Wisdom: patience...all I have left to do is wait 

Milestone: 7 days...or less!!

Emotions: beyond excited to have this baby, to meet him and see what he looks like and learn his little personality...what he likes and dislikes.  Im also really excited to see how hubby reacts to him and see how he reacts when meeting his son for the first time!

You look awesome!! Can't believe you're getting induced Tuesday! My specialist recommended an induction Monday and I see my OB MOnday so I'll know something then. Happy baby vibes your way!!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
