The Last Time This Will Be The Last Time

This marks the end of my last and final pregnancy.  Our family will be complete once Joshua makes his way into the world.  I am completely at peace with it.  I knew after 2 that I wasn't done, but this time it just feels right.  I am so excited to meet our new baby, and can't wait for Matthew and Lilly to meet him as well. 

so here is my last pregnancy update:

Almost Thirty Nine Weeks!
 

Size: he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I am up about 20lbs.

Maternity Clothes: Everything.

Gender: It's a BOY!

Movement: I had a day last week that movement was noticeably decreased, so I went to L&D to get checked out (first time in 3 pregnancies I have ever gone into L&D and left without a new baby) everything was fine, he must have just been sleepy!

Sleep: yea, very uncomfortable, but not horrible.

Cravings: Anything Cold, and fruity. 

Aversions:
Nothing really.

Symptoms: I have been having contractions for about a week, since I was in L&D and actually saw them on the monitor, but no progress at all. 

What I Miss: A normal body.  I am over this big ole baby belly!

What I'm Looking Forward To:  In just a few short days our baby will be here!

Best Moment This Week: Spending extra time as a family.  With the holidays Matthew has had off school, and my husband off work, so we have had a great time together as a family.  Also getting all the baby stuff set up (we waited until we took down all the Christmas decorations).

 Thoughts: Feeling mostly relaxed about the surgery (much more so this time around than the last), but started to get anxious.  I am just ready to meet him, hold him, and love on him!
