Baby Brown - Week 38

*disclaimer - this is crazy that this could be my last bumpdate! Here's to hoping (and not hoping for D.J.'s sake) that baby boy will be here soon! *

How far along: 38 weeks and 3 days! 

Due date: March 27, 2016 - EASTER DAY!

Baby Size: the size of a pumpkin and getting bigger and bigger by the day. 

Weight gain: I know this is all a process, but still trying to picture how I'm ever going to get back to pre baby weight! 

Maternity Clothes: if they even fit anymore.

Stretch Marks: got some love marks under this big ole belly! 

Sleep: not happening.  With the time change, I've had such a hard time falling asleep and then once I do, I feel like I wake up 20 minutes later having to pee. Ahhhh, the joys of pregnancy.

Gender: BOY!!! 

Name:  Harrison Cole Brown !

Movement: Oh for sure.  Even though he is running out of space, he still manages to make some dramatic movements.  Check out my instagram for the latest video! 

Best moment this week: paying my ER bill.  Just kidding.  That was probably the worst part.  However - silver lining is that this will make the delivery cheaper :) Seriously though, I'm just trying to embrace the last few kicks. AND finally got to catch up with one of the besties and got some great news from her! <3 

Looking forward to: Baby's birth day! Lots of people at work have chosen days that have passed, and i think everyone has their day on the calendar.  Only two people put after the due date, so we will see! 

Husband is: having a good Spring Training so far.  We are about a week and a half in and I'm just hoping Harrison holds out a little longer so daddy can get some more days in out there.  I feel confident that when the time comes, D.J. will make it back in time! 

Cravings: nothing really.

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope.

Labor Signs: At my 38 week appointment on Monday, I was 1-2 cm, 50% effaced and baby was in the -3 position.  So things are moving along, but nothing changed from 37 to 38 weeks.  I still haven't figured out if I'm having contractions.  People say it's when your belly gets tight.  I'm not sure if I feel that.  I have lots of pressure since he is head down, some serious back pain every now and then, but nothing timeable. 

Missing Most: being able to get comfortable. driving. sleep. D.J. and I'm sure more, but everything is so worth it!

Symptoms: anything and everything at 38 weeks pregnant. 

Nursery: DONE! Just waiting for Harrison to take his place in there! In case you missed it yesterday, check it out.

Belly Button in or out? flouting.  I had a serious innie y'all.  

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

Mood: lots of emotions this week.  Happy, excited, nervous, anxious, wondering how it will all happen, embracing the unknown! 

Workouts: walking around at school is a simple workout for me :) haha!
