40 Weeks – Due Date!

lllHow far along: 40 Weeks. I am due today!! Happy Pi Day.
Baby is the size of:  A Watermelon
Gender:
  Haven’t been any closer to the reveal than we are right now!
Weight gain: Poundage has been up and down for the last 3 weeks. It was down again this week so I am back at the 24lb mark. I think some of the water I was retaining has removed itself.
Maternity clothes:
Leggings, yoga pants, cami’s and zipper sweatshirts. The weather has been getting a little nicer/warmer so I don’t need to bundle up as much.
Stretch marks:
Nope.
Belly button in or out:
  Flat.
Sleep: Sleep has been better lately, last night I slept like a log. Calm before the storm?
Best moment this week:
Nothing “great” stands out. Still 1cm. Baby’s head is fitting down nicely into my pelvis so that’s always a plus. Just need some contractions to start and we’ll be all set. I had contractions ALL day Monday and baby was moving like crazy. I thought for sure we were going to have a baby.
Worst moment this week: Uncomfortable. Annoying people at work asking me the same questions and saying “you’re still here”. Yep. I am.
Miss anything:
I’m beyond missing things right now. I just want to meet my baby!
Movement:
Decent bit of moving lately!! Come on baby!!
Cravings: Nothing really.
Queasy or sick:
Nope, doing pretty good.
Labor Signs:
More contractions and pelvic pressure.
Symptoms:
Ankles stopped swelling. Other than that, just dealing with some contractions.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Looking forward to:
Having a baby! I hope this is the last post. Kevin and I finally settled on a short list of names so we aren’t staring at each other in the delivery room saying “I don’t know, what name do you like?”. I know everyone is looking forward to the big reveal. I am so many mixed emotions lately from the excitement, to being anxious and even getting frustrated that this baby may never want to come out! I don’t want to wait until the last possible minute. COME ON BABY!
