38 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 38 Weeks

Size of Baby: He weighs around 6.8 lbs. now and measures over 19 1/2 inches long from head to heal, (like a leek).
Total Weight Gain: 38 lbs total.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes, and I'm even growing out of most of the maternity clothes I have! I will be so happy to wear regular clothes again.

Gender: Its a BOY!! Jackson Thomas Smith

Movement: Yes!! He is still moving quite a bit, even though he's running out of room.

Food Cravings: Not really craving anything in particular.

What I miss: I miss a lot of things, like just feeling normal again. But its all worth it and at least I don't have much longer to go! :-)

Sleep: Not sleeping well at all. I guess I should get used to it though. Its probably my body getting me ready for motherhood.

Symptoms: Feeling REALLY tired lately and just down right uncomfortable. My feet and hands are swelling now too. :-( I also, occasionally, have a stabbing pain in my pelvis, which the Dr. said is just the pelvis widening to get ready for childbirth. I'm also have some Braxton Hicks Contractions occasionally and a little bit of cramping.

Best Moment this week: Finding out my sister is going to be induced to have Mason on Saturday, Oct. 8th. I'm so excited to be an aunt again in just 2 short days!!!

What I am looking forward to: Meeting my new baby nephew on Saturday and getting to meet baby Jackson in just 2 +/- more weeks.
