38 Weeks!

38 weeks 3 days to be exact :) 
{11 days until my due date!}

Size of baby: 
 Baby is the size of a WATERMELON
She weighs about 6.8 pounds and she's over 19 1/2 inches long!
Weight Gain: 13lbs

Maternity Clothes: yup

Sleep: minus last night's fiasco it has been pretty good.

Best Moment of this week: 
-buying the paint for her room
-started packing my hospital bag
-good dr. visit today: her hr was 150, my bp was 106/68, she was still in great position and the dr. said she was measuring great.  He predicts she will be a 6lb baby or maybe a low 7 pounder :)
all of the above ha! 
& a full tummy! 

  I think she might be slowing down but she still wiggles around daily

Food cravings:  
my appetite has gone way down...

Aversions: big meals

What I miss:
the lack of pain and heartburn, sleeping through the night, and just moving around like a normal person.  my body feels like its 300 lbs!  

Gender: little MISS!

What I'm looking forward to: 
getting my hair done today! (maybe getting a pedicure too?!), the pack-n-play and stroller should arrive this week, also I ordered some nursing clothes I can't wait to get, hubby painting the nursery tomorrow...  and
Baby bump: 
please don't judge me... I look terrible in this pic but I just wasnt feeling getting "ready" for a pic ha!

little miss at 38 weeks. kowabunga! :)

How your baby's growing:
Your baby has really plumped up. She weighs about 6.8 pounds and she's over 19 1/2 inches long (like a leek). She has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold her hand for the first time! Her organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb.
Wondering what color your baby's eyes will be? You may not be able to tell right away. If she's born with brown eyes, they'll likely stay brown. If she's born with steel gray or dark blue eyes, they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time she's 9 months old. That's because a child's irises (the colored part of the eye) may gain more pigment in the months after she's born, but they usually won't get "lighter" or more blue. (Green, hazel, and brown eyes have more pigment than gray or blue eyes.)

how your body's changing:
For many women, the next couple of weeks are a waiting game. Use this time to prepare your baby's nursery or to take care of necessary tasks you may not get around to for a while after your baby's born. Take naps, catch up on your reading, and spend uninterrupted time with your partner while you can.
Some swelling in your feet and ankles is normal during these last weeks, but call your practitioner without delay if you notice excessive or sudden swelling of your feet or ankles, more than slight swelling of your hands, any swelling in your face or puffiness around your eyes, or have a sudden weight gain. Also let her know immediately if have severe or persistent headaches; visual changes (such as double or blurred vision, seeing spots or flashing lights, light sensitivity, or a temporary loss of vision), intense upper abdominal pain or tenderness, or nausea and vomiting. These are symptoms of a serious condition called preeclampsia.
