39 weeks

Holy Cow, I'm 39 weeks!  Time has seriously flown by on this pregnancy and I know it's about to speed up when baby arrives.  Can we just hit pause, just for a second to enjoy this moment?  No? ok.

How far along? 39 Weeks
Total weight gain: 10lbs, lost two pounds after the Christmas/Halloween candy was out of the house.  I'm really going to miss it when I have to watch what I eat again!
Baby is the size of ? A Watermelon- yep, you read that correctly.  Lawd help my body!
Maternity clothes? Yep!  If it's not maternity or have enough spandex, it doesn't go on this body.
Stretch marks? So yeah, within the last few weeks I think there was a mutiny and more showed up.  Not happy about it at all, but still fighting them with Vitamin E, Coconut Oil and doTERRA Immortelle blend!

Sleep: Let's not even go there.  I'll just comment that I'm ready to have the baby out of my body so sleep positions become bearable again.   
Best moment this week: All the love being shown to Raegan!  My work family completely spoiled her rotten with gifts and a lunch shower.  We, as a family, have been so blessed by these people it brought me to tears more than once!
Miss Anything? Breathing and eating more than two bites of anything.  Enough said.
Movement: Kicks and punches have turned into full on barrel rolls and stretches!

Food cravings: Anything sweet, but not really craving too much lately.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Depends on the day, but not really.

Exercise? Lots of walking around the office!  That's taking way more energy than it did before.  
Gender:  SHE
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks are common place around here, along with round ligament pain and some other fleeting pains that come and go.
Symptoms: Seriously tired after doing nothing, and generally uncomfortable at all times.
Belly Button in or out? In- but I can now see both holes where my belly button ring would’ve resided.  
Wedding rings on or off? Normally I'm able to wear my engagement ring, but not my wedding band.  For the last two days, neither has fit comfortably. 

Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy, anxious and generally ready to get this show on the road!
Looking forward to: Meeting Raegan!  I feel like a kid on Christmas who's been waiting 9 months for her present!  Let's gooooooooo!!!

Until next time...
