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 bump.com)
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.)
