How far along?: 40 weeks
How big is baby?: It's hard to say for sure how big your baby will be, but the average newborn weighs about 7 1/2 pounds (a small pumpkin) and is about 20 inches long.
Weight gain?: I have not gained any weight in the last few weeks. Since the begining I have gained 29 pounds.
Stretch marks?: Thankfully I still have no stretch marks, but my linea nigra is now visible.
Maternity clothes?: I have been lacking in the clothes department because I really did not want to purchase maternity clothes. I have to say that yoga pants and long tank tops have been my wardrobe lately.
Food cravings?: Anything cold!
Sleep?: Still not happening. I have been so hot and uncomfortable.
Exercise?: Lots and lots of walking this week.
What's been going on?: Well, the time has finally come where we are almost at the finish line. There are so many emotions running through me... I start to get anxiety when I remember what it was like to give birth; I am worried about Little Miss L. and how she is going to react to the change that is about to happen; I am stressed that we do not have everything prepared for this baby to arrive (such as having a name picked out); I am excited my pregnancy is coming to an end; and most importantly, I am anxious to meet my son. I met with the ob/gyn yesterday and she was just as surprised as I that the little man has not arrived. He is still in the perfect spot for delivery, and heartbeat is strong. Now it is just a waiting game and I really hope he decides to end this game soon. Hopefully this will be my last weekly pregnancy update... fingers crossed everyone!
