38 Weeks

 38 WEEKS 
Pictures taken by Devin using my new 50mm lens, love it!

How far along? 38 weeks! Baby is the size of a pumpkin. I'm thinking a rather small pumpkin...
Maternity clothes? Still a mix, I've just lucked out on finding cute, stretchy, regular-people-clothes or I just wear sweats all day.
Stretch marks? Not so far, feeling lucky!
Sleep: Just a little bit of turning in the night to stay comfortable but no bathroom breaks yet, thank goodness!
Best moment this week: Finding this fun dress on my birthday that fits preggo belly and is REALLY stretchy, so hopefully it'll fit after pregnancy too!  And I got lots of clothes/some equipment for really cheap at a 25 cent sale this week!  Most of the clothes look good as new :)
Miss Anything? Not really...I think I'm actually going to miss having this belly - with how great my pregnancy has been, I think it's kind of fun. 
Movement: She's a wiggler, but I think now that she's bigger there's not as much room in there so I don't feel it quite as often.
Food cravings: Nope - but I like sweets more lately than I have most of my pregnancy.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Sometimes chicken or store bought salsa but not really. 
Gender: Girl!
Labor Signs: About an hour ago I got this sharp pain in my right side that didn't go away for about 45 minutes.  It made me wonder...but it's gone now and I don't know what it was!
Symptoms: My calves cramp in the night sometimes and I usually wake up kind of stiff. 
Belly Button in or out? It's out, but so squishy that it usually stays flat when I have clothes on.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Great!  A little stressed with how fast it's coming and how I still don't know if we have everything we need but we'll live and learn I guess!
Looking forward to: Getting last minute sewing projects finished - fabric bunting to go on the wall above her crib that matches her quilt, a diaper changing pad/wipe holder for my purse, a little square lap blanket. That's all for now, I think :)

  1. Devin did a great job! The 50mm is so fun because you can really get the background to blur, huh? You're such a cute pregnant lady. I can't believe you're almost done!

  2. My labor & delivery gown I'm bringing to the hospital is so comfy and cute.
