38 Weeks




How Far Along:  38 Weeks

Size of baby: Ellie is the size of a pumpkin...which I'm totally believing today!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm still losing weight, although I read somewhere that this is normal. 

Maternity Clothes: YOU BET!!  Even these are getting a little short in the mid-section.  

Gender: It's a girl...Elizabeth Victoria Watson!!!

Movement: Her movement has slowed drastically over the past few days.  I can usually get her to move a bit if I eat something spicy or sugary.  I guess she's just resting up for her gran entrance into this world! 

Sleep: Eli has been waking up again, but is easy to get back down. Of course I'm up a lot to pee, but I've been taking 30 minute power naps before I pick up Eli.  They seem to be helping!!

What I miss: Diet Coke, of course...and finding a comfortable position!

Cravings: Nothing really.

SymptomsWell, I'm still having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions, and I'm generally uncomfortable.  My back hurts, I have constant abdominal cramping, and I'm slow than molasses.  Guess that's to be expected with only FIVE days until delivery!!
