39 weeks

how far along?  39 weeks 1 day
how are you measuring?  41 weeks (His head is very low and I am 1 cm dialated and 75% effaced.)
size of baby? According to Baby Center our baby is 20 inches long, a bit over 7 pounds, and the weight of a small watermelon. 
heartbeat?   130 bpm (at our 39 week appointment) 
total weight gain/loss? + 40lbs  (I gained back those 4 lbs.....ha!! Oh well, I'm almost done with pregnancy.  40 pounds isn't too bad.)
maternity clothes? Maternity clothes all the time.  
stretch marks? The stretch marks on my sides are getting more noticeable.  I can't believe I made it all the way until the end and then they decided to show up.  Atleast they aren't all over my belly.  
sleep? Considering the amount of times I have to get up to go to the bathroom at night and how uncomfortable I am, I'm actually sleeping pretty good.  Friday night though I woke up 3 times in tears.  I'm not really sure why I was crying, but it took me a little while to settle down each time.  I think I'm just getting anxious about the huge change that is about to happen in our life. 
best moment this week?  Summer!!! I thoroughly enjoyed my first week of summer.  I laid out twice, shopped, got my hair cut, got a mani/pedi, took naps, relaxed on the couch, slept in, watched TV, and even did some couponing!!
movement? He's still moving around all the time.  If you missed my "Wiggles" video, you can check it out here
food cravings? I got 2 sno-cones and a banana shake this week!!  Mmmmm Mmmmmm good!!
gender predictions? It's STILL a BOY!!!  Pearson Davis Link!!! 
what i miss:  I really miss sleeping on my back.  I can't wait to sleep on my back next week!!
what i'm looking forward to:  Obviously I'm excited to meet my sweet baby boy this week, but Matt is taking off Wednesday through Friday whether he is here or not.  If Pearson hasn't made his debut, I'm excited to spend some quality time with my hubby just the two of us.  
how are you feeling? I'm really feeling great.  Not working has made me feel like a new women.  I got so much accomplished this week!!  I'm having Braxton Hicks contractions about every 15 minutes all day long.  They don't hurt and I don't notice them at night.  I really don't start to feel miserable until I go to bed at night.  I don't have much to complain about.  I have truly been blessed this pregnancy.
