Baby J- Week 38

How far along? 38 weeks, 1 day

Baby Bump? Absolutely.

Maternity clothes? Absolutely.

Total weight gain: 8 lbs. I was at 11 two weeks ago but it somehow disappeared. It's the craziest thing.

Cravings: Coke. Cherry Coke. Coke Icee. Bottled Coke. Canned Coke. Coke float. And soft served ice cream.

Symptoms: Contractions on a nightly basis... not painful ones or ones with any kind of time between them, but contractions none the less. Also, swollen fingers.

Sleep: Sleep has been great. I have decided the key is to go strong during the day, stay up late, then sleep for as long as I possibly can the next morning. Sometimes that is 6:00, sometimes that is 9:00. 

Movement: She's really been moving a lot for the past week or so. BIG movements that rock my whole body and sometimes hurt. But I love it!!  

Gender: We are having a little girl! Emily Ann! 

Belly Button in or out? In but barely.

What I miss: Lol... Coke. My engagement and wedding bands. Cute clothes... or at least a variety of clothes.

Best moment this week: Brian's sweet co-workers surprised us with a baby shower this afternoon! They got me to the office with the promise of an "award for Brian" and gave us both a fun surprise! It was so wonderful. We had delicious cake, received some fabulous gifts, and enjoyed a great time with his office!

At my doctor's appointment yesterday, the doctor mentioned that we could talk about inducing next week. We aren't going to but the fact that it could be discussed was enough for me! We are getting so close!

Have a great weekend my friends!
