38 Weeks

How far along? 38 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Down just over 2lbs from last week which I find odd. I've read that it is possible to loose during the last few weeks, but my appetite has been so big the last 3 (and I've definitely indulged a bit) that I fully expected to see another gain.

Maternity clothes? Yes, and I am so bored of the same few outfits, but also not willing to spend the money on any new clothes at this point.

Stretch marks? Yes, and I did gain some new ones right on the front of my belly. I joked with Trent about how I need a few more to "balance things out" since they are only on one side of my belly button.

Sleep: Not as well as in the previous weeks, but not terrible either. I wake about 3-4 times a night now.

Best moment this week: Hearing his heartbeat at our checkup <- I don't think I can ever get enough of that. So sweet and reassuring.

Movement: Still quite the active little guy.

Food cravings: None. But still enjoying that hearty appetite.

Labor Signs: None.

Belly Button in or out? Pretty close to flat.

What I am looking forward to: Meeting him very soon. :)

Milestones: We're under 30 days to when he will possibly arrive. Just waiting on the little guy to decide when he's ready to make his appearance.

Energy Level: Fairly well. Definitely more tired than I was a month ago, but no noticeable changes from last week. And I did manage to attend the prenatal water aerobics class on Tuesday night - something I've really enjoyed during my pregnancy.


  1. I remember getting to that point w/the maternity clothes - there were only a few things that fit well right at the end - but I wasn't going to spend any more money on clothes! LOL!

    Not long to go... :)

  2. Like Toni, I remember getting to this point, I was really ready for it to be over! But I am so excited for you, it's getting so close, it could really be any time now. Can't wait to start seeing photos of your little boy.

  3. I would just like to say, that I hate that you have lost two pounds. I live in fear of getting on the scale at my 32 wk apt in a wk or two.

    ps. im at that point with my clothes too!

  4. It won't be long now! Down the homestretch! Are you nesting yet?


Thanks for leaving a comment! I enjoy reading them all. :)
