Week 39

How far along? 39 weeks 4 days
Her size: Baby girl is the size of COME OUT ALREADY!
Total weight gain:  +1.0 lbs this week 28.6lbs total
Running/Races?  Worked out at the gym a few times, did a lot of walking.  If I thought I got funny looks when I was 6 months pregnant, it's down right hilarious now!  It's not as easy to get it in these days with the heat but I'm still doing my best :)
Stretch marks? None...yet (knocking really hard on wood!)
Sleep: Sleep has been better this week but it's come with a price....for Shaun.  I found him on the couch this morning and when I woke him up and asked him why he was out there he said "Because you were snoring SO LOUD!!!"  Now, I'm not a snorer typically (that's HIS territory) so I felt bad, but as Shaun said "if you're snoring, you're sleeping which is a step up from last week" there you have it, sorry bout your luck hun.
Best moment this week: Another great weekend for the books! Luckily the little lady stayed put so mamma could go to her friend Jamie's wedding! Shaun was working so I went with another couple, it was a great night filled with trackie love! Imagine my surprise when my handsome husband surprised me at the reception just in time for the anniversary dance!  We took advantage of the GORGEOUS weather on Sunday for what we assume will be our last relaxing day at the beach for a looooong time, lol.  I couldn't have asked for a better, more relaxing day with my husband.  I COULD, however, have done a little better job applying sunscreen --> OUCH!
Miss Anything? My beautiful slim ankles ;)
Movement:  All the time, I'm hoping it's her packing up and getting ready to leave.
Food cravings: Fresh fruit and veggies, Dunkin Donuts frozen lemonade/ice tea
Anything making you queasy or sick: I ate chicken THREE times this week...Shaun is beside himself with delight at the prospect of chicken making it's way back into the weekly meal rotation.
Gender: GIRL! 
Labor Signs: At my 38 week appt her head was +2 station and my cervix was thinned....which tells me absolutely nothing. Every woman is different and progresses at a different rate, sooooo we'll see.
Symptoms: Some cramping off and on and I'm definitely feeling her movements lower than before so I'm hoping that means she's headed in the right direction. Oh yeah and let's not forget those cankles (thank you heat)!
Belly Button in or out? sigh...the turkey is done
Wedding rings on or off? miracle of miracles they're still on!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy...excited...nervous...<--yes, still that
Looking forward to: Everyone keeps asking me if I'm ready...well yes and no.  I have had a great pregnancy and I know in some strange ways I'll miss it when it's over.  I'm more than happy to keep her on the inside until she's ready to come out...let's face it, they're really easy to take care of in there! On the other hand I just want to get the show on the road already!!! At the end of the day we are so so excited to 
lay eyes on our sweet baby girl!

Let's hope my next post is one filled with pictures of the new arrival!
