I don't have a lot to report at 39 weeks. I wake up every day and think to myself, "is today going to be the day??"
Size of baby: Baby girl is waiting to greet the world! She continues to build a layer of fat to help control her body temperature after birth, but it's likely she already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, like a mini watermelon!
Sleep: I get my best sleep when I take naps. I'm only working mornings this week and it has been a life saver! Nights are still a lot of tossing and turning, getting up to go to the bathroom and not being able to fall back to sleep.
Movement: Same as last week, her movement has slowed down a bit, but she still has her active times during the day and right before bed.
Food cravings/aversions: I've been craving fruits and veggies a lot more and of course, still sweets.
What I am looking forward to: Meeting our daughter! I keep telling her she has so many great people out here that can't wait to meet her!
I have been feeling pretty good. My hips are very sore but I'm taking this as a sign of progress and hoping that she is moving down to where she needs to be (although I hear every day at work that she hasn't dropped). At our midwife appointment last Friday I was 80% effaced but not dilated at all. We go back again tomorrow and I hope there has been some progress! My bh contractions aren't as frequent as they used to be and when I do have them, they are a little stronger but still not anything super painful.
That's about it folks, I'll try to update with some belly pictures and info from our appointment tomorrow!
P.S. I just want to say good luck to my blog friend Kelly, she is being induced today :)
