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 Boy: Boy!
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?!
