40 Weeks

This week, Baby is the size of a: Watermelon
How far along? 40 weeks
Due date: March 25, 2013 (yes yesterday)
Total weight gain/loss: 18 lbs
Maternity clothes? Yep. At 40 weeks I officially have moved into maternity only shirts.
Sleep: I've had a horrible cold for the past weeks so I have finally had a couple nights of sleep after basically not sleeping all last week. 
Best moment: May sound silly, but getting some things checked off my to-do list has been the best moments of the past couple of weeks. After three months of christmas decorations sitting in our dinning room, they are finally put away and that makes me feel so much better. 
Movement: He's still moving all over the place. He definitely doesn't seem to care that he has no room... he'll just push whatever is in his way out of the way.
Food cravings: Spicy food... especially Thai and Indian. If I could eat it every day I would. This is true on a regular day for me too but it's a little more extreme right now.
Symptoms: As the baby gets lower my ability to walk after sitting has gotten worse and worse. This is suppose to help with my breathing but since I've had a cold I haven't noticed that benefit yet. 
Gender: Boy! 
Feeling toward Pregnancy: I was really down last Friday since I was so sick and I was coming up on a week where my doctor was on vacation. I'm still not ecstatic about our current situation but I'm doing better now that my cold is going away and I've had some rest.
What I miss: Since we're so close to the end I'm looking forward to enjoying some of the things I've been missing. I'm really looking forward to being able to get some exercise in.
What I am looking forward to: Baby!
Milestones: We made it to the full 40 week mark! We also think we have everything we need to welcome baby to the world.
