38 weeks!

I am officially 38 weeks today, that means we have a FULL term baby that is ready to meet her family. The girls are asking everyday if they will have their baby sister today....or tomorrow.....they just want to know but so do we :) I have a doctor appointment so hopefully I find out that labor is near. I have only done one other breakdown of my pregnancy on here, I thought I would do more but just never got around to it so here is my 38 weeks:

How far along? 38 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 50+ pounds.....ooops!

Maternity clothes? I still love maternity bottoms, they are so comfy. The tops make me feel like a cow so I just buy larger!

Stretch marks? Still no belly ones, some extras creeped into my hips/lovehandle area :P

Best moment this week? Getting another week closer to Claire being here!

Movement: her constant moving has slowed down and I am experiencing more of the big rolls and limbs poking out of the side of my belly

Food cravings: Popsicles!

Gender: Another Princess

Labor Signs? I contract but have a feeling none of them are doing their job :(

Belly Button in or out? Depends on how I sit/stand, sometimes it's flat, most of the time at least half of it sticks out and sometimes it's full outtie

What I miss: I'm ready to have my body back, this has been a very physically painful pregnancy

What I am looking forward to: Meeting Claire!

Emotions: I'm just exhausted and now that I am at the end I am more than ready for her to be born. It's frustrating to hear that "she will come when she's ready" since I know that if she is born now I will have a healthy ALIVE baby. It's hard keeping my mind off of all the bad things that still could happen.
