38 Week Update

I have been neglecting the blog lately... sleeping and nesting have overtaken me these days. Here's what's been going on.... 

How far along: 38 weeks 1 day
Total Weight Gain:  33 lbs... I can't believe the scale these days.  I hope we have a little chunker =)

Maternity Clothes:  Using all maternity pants and can still mix in regular tops. 

Stretch Marks: Still good - fingers crossed!

Sleep:  Sleeping through the night with the occasional lower back pain. 

Best moment(s) of this week:  I finally am caught up on removing all tags, washing and organizing all baby clothes!   

My co-workers also threw me a baby shower and it was wonderful! 
Also, I wanted to say congratulations to my sister-in-law on her new baby girl! 
Brooklyn Isabella
Miss Anything:  I am really missing cuddles with the hubby lately. 

Movement:  He is still moving like crazy!  Distinguishing body parts now - I think we felt his heel the other night across my side.

Food Cravings: Nothing out of the ordinary but, I did recently buy Trader Joe's Cookie Butter and that was a big mistake.  I am pretty sure this will be gone by the weekend. 

Gender: Boy, Boy, Boy!

Labor Signs: No labor signs yet. 

Belly Button (in/out):  It is coming out slowly... still pretty flush.

Wedding ring (on/off): On!

Looking forward to:  Our maternity shoot this weekend!

Doctors Appointment:  Dr. said he is still head down and he thinks we will have a 7 1/2 lb baby! Woo! He also told us to call when we think labor has begun if we are in the 5-1-1 Labor Rule. 5-1-1 means having contractions 5 minutes apart lasting for 1 minute for one full hour. I would like to labor at home for as long as possible, so I hope the pain is tolerable and this is doable. 

My current To Do list: 
- Find a pediatrician
- Pick a middle name
Decide on a bookshelf or shelving
- Install car seat
Complete birth plan
- Test run to the hospital
- Pack hospital bag
- Pack Ryder's Bag
- Frozen Meal Prep 

Last shopping trip for essentials: 

My mom (3 days before delivering my sister) & I

I hope to keep you updated these last few weeks. =)
