39 Weeks

How far along? 39 weeks, 0 days

How big is baby?  approximately 7.5 lbs., according to my What to Expect app.

Total weight gain/loss: +0 lbs. in the last week; +15  lbs. total

Maternity clothes? Most all of the time, except for dresses.

Stretch marks: Yes.

Sleep: Up several times during the night.

Best moment this week: Hearing Connor tell all of his friends at daycare this afternoon that he was going to be a big brother, with a huge smile on his face.  We have such a sweet boy.

Movement:  Lots of movement, as usual.

Food cravings: I still want sweets and fruit right now, but I still feel full most of the day.

Food Aversions: Spaghetti

Gender: girl

Labor Signs: I have not had a doctor visit this week, so I'm not sure if I've made any progress, but at the very least I should still be 2 cm. dilated.

Symptoms: lack of sleeping, discomfort, aching joints

Belly Button in or out? It is pretty much even now, leaning toward an outie.

What I miss: sleep, which obviously won't get better any time soon  :)

What I am looking forward to: my nervous energy being gone and just having our baby here and dealing with the changes/challenges/joys of expanding our family

Upcoming appointments/events: The big day -- tomorrow!  We are set to be at the hospital at 5:30 a.m. (CDT) tomorrow morning for me to be induced.

Weekly Wisdom: I keep reminding myself, as my nerves get the better of me, that God is in control, and everything will work out according to His will.  Any prayers would be greatly appreciated.

and I had to take one last photo of Connor on his last day as on only child:

Please remember us in prayer tomorrow as our family expands!  We love you all!
