38 Weeks

How far along: 38 weeks (7/13/13)
Baby size: 20 inches from head to toe and about 7 pounds. She has probably reached her birth length and weight.
Total weight gain: Around 50 pounds.  I want to add that the doctor is not concerned about my weight gain because my blood pressure and other levels are great.  She said this is just my body's way of reacting to pregnancy.
Maternity clothes: Yes! I am able to wear some pre-pregnancy clothes still (like the tank top under my dress in the picture above), but most of my clothes are maternity.  My maternity pants are too small though because my hips have spread :(
Stretch marks: None :)
Sleep: Doing well again this week!  I feel like I'm getting enough sleep, but I am also waking up a lot for the bathroom, and by bedtime I am exhausted.
Best moment this week: Getting all the "last minute" things done--installing the car seat, putting crib sheets on etc.
Miss anything? Sleeping through the night...but I suppose it's just preparation for when baby comes!
Movement: Yes!  She's moving all over! 
Food cravings: Speedy Freezes and Twizzlers
Have you started to show yet? Yes, for sure!
Gender: Our little one is a girl!
Labor signs: Yes, and no.  My body is definitely preparing for labor.  At my appointment on Wednesday (7/10), I was 80% effaced and 2 cm dilated.  TMI: I lost my mucus plug Sunday.  I've been having contractions but nothing painful.  I keep waiting for the pain--I'm ready to have this baby!
Belly button in or out? In, but it's flat now.
Wedding rings on or off? On.  Permanently on. :)
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: The first real contraction and having my baby!
