How far along?  39 weeks (March 16-22)

Maternity clothes?  Getting smaller (not me, just the clothes) and it’s been getting warmer outside, so I resort to big t-shirts and running shorts!

Stretch marks?  They just keep coming! 😦

Sleep?  Sleep has been good since we got our new bed.  I feel like I’m completely used to getting up and peeing so many times in the night that I don’t even feel any need to complain.  God is certainly preparing me for the lack of sleep that is yet to come 🙂

Miss Anything?  Feeling like this baby is going to come soon, lol

Movement?  She’s slowed down a little this week–probably because she is running out of room to wiggle.

Food cravings?  Anything that might possibly cause me to go into labor!

Anything making you queasy or sick?  Eh, I don’t think so.

Best moment this week?  My “Aunt” Suzie (no blood relation, just my mom’s best friend from New Mexico!) came into town on Thursday and she hasn’t stopped spoiling me and the baby since then!  Every night she gives me a massage and hot tea while Jonathan reads to us.  I feel so blessed to have her here!  🙂  Also, my dad and grandparents came in at the very end of the week.  While we were waiting for them, I felt like a little kid on Christmas Eve!  So, so happy that everyone is here.

Worst moment of the week?  I won’t bore you with specifics, mainly because I can’t remember them all, but God has been working on me piece by piece and bringing up things that I need to deal with before this baby gets here.  Just when I think I’m finally ready, He shows me something else I don’t quite have figured out.  He sure knows how to humble me.  This really isn’t a bad thing, so it shouldn’t count as the “worst moment of the week” at all, but it has been the ongoing most painful part!

How much are you showing this week?  Ha, this week, I dropped off some groceries for some families and the man in charge of coordinating it all told me I looked like I should be staying home waiting to go to the hospital!  Hopefully this baby comes as soon as she looks like she needs to!

Pregnancy Brain?  Still have it!

Labor Signs?  Went to the midwife and she checked me . . . says I’m not dilated at all, but my cervix is “ripe” and “soft like butter” haha.  The baby’s head is right where she needs to be and the midwife said “all the ingredients are there” so whenever she’s ready, my body is prepared!  We’ll see when she’s finally ready to make her appearance!

Belly Button in or out?  Out!!

Wedding rings on or off?  Off.  My hands get extra swollen whenever I exercise and my feet seem like they’ll never fit comfortably in my Chacos again.

Happy or Moody most of the time?  Happy

Looking forward to?  Spending time with my family until this baby arrives and hoping she will come during week 40!!!!!  All in God’s time.
