38 weeks

The chalkboard isn't up yet, but the quilt (centerpiece of the nursery) is! What do you think?

How Far Along: 38 weeks

Size of Baby: Almost 6.8 pounds, 19.5 inches. Length of a leek.

Total Weight Gain: Roughly 19.5 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight. (I'm pulling this out of thin air, all I know is that I gained a pound last week). 

Maternity Clothes: Yes and C's clothes shirts. 

Gender: Still a surprise!

Movement: Still moving up a storm in there.  Mainly shifting from one side to the other. 

Sleep: I sleep when I'm not up going to the bathroom (which is 3-4 times a night). Our new KING sized bed helps when I do actually sleep.  

What I Miss: Being able to move and get up without C's help. Having a range of motion. Lying on my stomach. 

Cravings: Ho Hos. 

Symptoms: Slowing down more and more. Also more and more uncomfortable. 

Best Moments this Week: Getting the house (completely) ready. Pack-n-play is up, nursery is ready, bags are packed for the hospital, and the car seat is installed. Getting anxious to meet Mister Fartlepants. This thing is getting real.

I think it's great, and I think you look wonderful. A 19.5 pound weight gain (even if it is only a guess), is terrific. Sounds like you're all set. Now C'mon Mr. Fartlepants! :)
