38 Weeks

This week, Baby is the size of a: Pumpkin
How far along? 38 weeks
Due date: March 25, 2013
Total weight gain/loss: 17 lbs
Maternity clothes? Pants yes all the time and my tops are all getting a little short.
Sleep: I think I hit a new record for the number of times I get up at night. The past couple of nights I've seen pretty much every hour and daylight savings is doing a pretty good job kicking my butt. I was having some anxiety dreams about having a huge baby but the doctor told us based on measurements he's thinking the baby is around 6 and a half pounds which is reassuring.
Best moment: Getting to full term! 
Movement: He's been moving all over the place. He definitely is trying to stretch out in there and sometimes it feels like he's trying to kick his way out. 
Food cravings: I'm enjoying freeze pop popsicles these days and as much water as I can get.
Symptoms: At this point it's easier to list the symptoms I don't have which is basically Braxton Hicks contractions and high blood pressure. Other than that my system is going haywire. 
Gender: Boy! 
Feeling toward Pregnancy: We're waiting. I keep going back and forth between being really excited that it could be any day and then getting anxious about the things we haven't finished yet. We had a quick ultrasound yesterday to see if the baby is in position which he is so we're just waiting for the baby to be ready to make his appearance.
What I miss: Exercise, sleeping, shopping for regular clothes, sleeping... I feel like that one isn't going to get better.
What I am looking forward to: Baby!
Milestones: Full term and baby in position!
