 photo 022c1ecf-0f24-484c-a07c-3b9e8a2ff291_zpsb09b320d.jpg

How far along: 39 weeks

Size of Baby: 20 in & 7.25 lb

Fruit/vegetable comparison: Small Watermelon

Total weight gain: 28 lbs (almost 29 lbs)

Sleep:  Not too bad other then getting up to use the restroom several times a night and having to continue to turn over to relieve my sore hips.  I'm honestly not complaining now that the heartburn & indigestion are almost none existent!

Movement:  Love feeling her move.  As she is running out of room her little kicks and punching can be a bit more painful, but I know I'm going to miss this feeling once she is out.

Unglamorous body changes: My stomach is starting to feel pretty stretched.  There are times when I feel like it can't stretch any farther and my belly can be quite sensitive.  Still no stretch marks though!  Fingers crossed it stays that way.  Ha!

What I miss: I remember the days when I could get pretty comfortable pretty easily but these days it takes a little more time to get there.  Then I'm only comfortable for a short time before I have to switch positions.  

Milestones: She's probably able to flex her limbs now.  Her brain is still rapidly developing -- she's getting smarter by the week!  Her nails may extend past his fingertips.  (the

Labor Signs:  I've been having a lot of Braxton Hicks lately.  There were even a couple of times this week that I thought I could be going into labor.  Friday night the contractions were so strong that is was contorting my belly and you could even see the shape of Maggie!!  It lasted for a few hours but then started to lessen.  I've definitely been having contractions everyday but they are inconsistent.  I saw the doctor today and she said I was still 1 cm dialated but maybe a little more then that.  I was also 50% effaced, and she still thinks I will go into labor after my due date.  :(

Best moment this week: The nursery is finally finished and I took pictures of it this weekend.  I plan to post them this Thursday!!  I also got to have lunch with my friends Brittney (who was in town from Houston) & her sister Chelsea on Friday.  I also met with a photographer on Wednesday to discuss newborn pictures.  She was a little pricey so I'm still looking.  Finally, Ryan and I had probably our last date night on Saturday night.  It was a pretty great week (other then Maggie didn't come).

Looking forward to: Maggie's due date being here and obviously being that much closer to the day she actually decides to make her appearance.  I'm also looking forward to 3 months off from work to spend with my little girl.

Since I think little Maggie is going to miss St. Patrick's Day I wanted to post what will most likely be her first holiday outfit.  How cute is this bunny onesie and leg warmers???  I also got a black bow to go along with this.
This outfit is from here.  (Picture is from the etsy shop.)
