38 weeks...the final week!

38 weeks!!

How far along: 38 weeks

How big is baby: the last time we had an ultrasound about 3 weeks ago Brant weighed 6lbs 3oz.  So I'm guessing he is about 7lbs or a little more.

Weight gain/loss: Uhhh... more than 40 is all I care to remember.

Maternity Clothes: YES, and really most of these ARE now too small.

Stretch marks: Still no thankfully. 

Sleep:  OH. MY. WORD.  not at all!!!  I'm guessing that is a thing of the past.  We should both be
pretty used to lack of sleep.
Diet:Cheeseburgers. Pizza. Gigi's cupcakes.  Anything bad for me.

Gender: Boy! Brantley Cleve

Movement: YES! Love it...  He is very active and very strong.  I know I will miss this part.

The belly: BIG! Bigger than I ever could have imagined. 

What I miss: clothes fitting, running, walking normal, shoes fitting (this issue has became a real problem this last week.)

Symptoms: Heartburn/indigestion, hips hurting, swelling, emotional.  The emotional and swelling have gotten worse this week...ditto from last time...   Pregnancy is tough.  This week I am honestly just so uncomfortable that I am thankful not to have to go another week.  I am NOT trying to sound ungrateful.  I am more than ever aware of what a blessing this pregnancy and baby is.  I am just documenting.  I would do EVERY bit of it again, and again, and again. 

What I'm looking forward to: Having a baby at the end of THIS week!!! 

Best moment of the week: Having Ike home.  He has been out of town the past few weeks and while everything is planned I felt a sigh of relief when he was back in town.

Brant's Nursery

I have been intending to put up pictures of Brant's nursery for a while!!  At least I am getting them up before he is born.  I love how his room turned out, and more than that I love that so much of it is special.  I don't feel these pictures do it justice.
