Baby Brown: Week 40

How far along: 40 WEEKS!!! 

Due date: YESTERDAY!!! 

Baby Size: fully cooked and hopefully ready to come out any day down and I can update you all on his actual size! 

Weight gain: too much to worry about. 

Maternity Clothes: at this point, I'm wearing whatever fits. 

Stretch Marks: oh yea, these babies popped out of no where underneath my big ole belly.  Can't complain though, it's all worth it! 

Sleep: I physically have to lift my belly whenever I want to roll from one side to the other.  So sleep isn't the best, but every few nights I get a pretty good sleep in there.  

Gender: BOY!!! 

Name:  Harrison Cole Brown !

Movement: Oh yea and boy, am I going to miss feeling this.  The movements come with some serious pressure these days, but it's such a surreal feeling that this child has grown in me for 39 weeks and now is officially ready to make his way into the world.  Women bodies are truly amazing! 

Best moment this week: coloring Easter eggs, celebrating Easter, and knowing that our little man should be in our arms any minute now! 

Looking forward to:  Celebrating Harrison's birthday!! and seeing where D.J. will start the season! 

Husband is: still out it AZ and killing it.  He has played in three games so far and hoping to get at least one more game/bullpen in before Harrison arrives.  Of all the things that come with delivery, I am most nervous about D.J. getting back to Virginia in time for the birth. 

Cravings: still the smell of cleaning supplies,  ice, and a hot shower! 

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope.

Labor Signs: As of this morning at my 40w1d appointment, I was 3cm and planning to be induced this week if nothing happens before then! 

Missing Most: hopefully pretty soon I will be saying I miss being pregnant! 

Symptoms: lower back pain that comes on suddenly....nurse said this was the stress on my body of carrying baby boy around. 

Nursery: DONE -  check it out.

Belly Button in or out? Still not 100% an outie.  It has it's moments though! When baby boy sits right behind it, its a full on volcano! 

Wedding rings on or off? they still fit, but I don't want to push it. 

Mood: anxious!! I can't wait for the labor process to begin so Harrison can be here in our arms and join our family on the outside!
