39 weeks. 1 to go.

How Far Along: 39 weeks. If he is not here by the time we hit 40 he is being evicted!

Size of Baby: Not 9 lbs. PHEW! This is what the doctor was able to deduce at our last appointment but wasn't able to tell us how big she actually thinks he is.

Total Weight Gain: Holding at 22 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, but my robe remains my favorite piece of fashion. I am not trying to be Rachel Zoe here!

Movement: Yes, and it is becoming apparent that he less room to move around in there. His movements are strong and short versus a lot of wiggling around.

Symptoms: Oh, lots. The major one is I-want-to-meet-him-itis!

What I Miss: Sleeping on my stomach or back. I can hardly wait to not sleep on my side!

Girl or BoyBoy!

Baby name hint: The first letter of his name can be found in the second half of the alphabet.

Belly button In or Out: Out. Always out.

Stretch Marks: Nope. 

Cravings: I caved and consumed copious amounts of Fruity Pebbles this week. I can't say this is a pregnancy related craving necessarily but they sure were tasty! 

Best Moment This Week: The Cardinals winning the World Series! What a great year for Baby R to be born. 

In other news: I have decided that my nesting has turned a bit into something resembling preparation for the apocalypse. I am apparently going to be rendered completely useless (both physically and mentally) for at least 30 days post partum according to my preparation for Baby R's arrival. I have recently realized that I am having a baby, not brain surgery, so I will likely be able to function upon returning home. I guess you can never be too prepared, right?! 
There can only be one more of these! WOO HOO!!!

I am pleased to say...After reviewing all of the clues for the very last time...That my baby name guess is.....


After such devoted time and research I have come to the conclusion that even if I get it wrong, he will forever be Noah to me :-)
