38 weeks!

Today is: May 28th, 2013

How far along: 38 weeks 1day

Total weight gain: 3.2 since last visit, 31.6 for the pregnancy. Last week I had lost 0.8 so I don't feel AS bad about 3 in one week.  With Truitt I was up 41.5lbs at this point so I at least feel better about this time.

Baby is the size of: A PUMPKIN approximately18.9-20.9 inches, 6.2-9.2 lb. My belly is only measuring one week ahead and with T it was measuring 2wks. Dr P is guessing he will weigh about 9lb at delivery.  My guess is 9lb 4oz and 21in long.

Baby is a: A BOY!

Maternity clothing: my maternity shirts aren't long enough to cover the belly panel any more and the "full sized" belly panels come up just barely over my belly button

Sleep: Pretty good. I wake up every 2-3 hours to pee until about 4am and then sleep until 7 or 8 when T wakes up but sleep hard when I am sleeping.  Days where I don't get to nap with T in the afternoon are rough for me though

Movement: Lots! A few cervical jabs that are painful but mainly big rolls that distort my stomach and lots of hiccups

Cravings/Aversions: Cravings? Anything. I'm starving

- Emotions! I have burst into tears several times lately.
- Pubic Symphysis pain
-Getting the huge/tired/sore stage

How this pregnancy is different than the first:
-No dilation.  Truitt dropped at 35wks and I started dilating .5cm/week. This time, Bennett is still high, I haven't dilated (well as of last week. I didn't ask to be checked today) and therefore I haven't lost any of my plug
-Because of that I think I'm physically feeling better.  I really don't feel like I'm to the "I'm done" point like I did with T.  My pelvis is still VERY achy but not nearly as painful as I remember it being with Truitt

The best moment(s) since last post:
-Bags are packed! Mine and Bennett's.  I still need to get Truitt's together for staying with Memaw and Pops though
-B's room is done!

I'm looking forward to:
-Meeting my baby boy in just 10 days!!!
-Enjoying this next week and a half soaking up as much Truitt time as I possibly can before he graduates from only child to big brother!
