Mommy Monday {38 weeks}

I feel like every week I start these posts the same way "Well, here we are at 38 weeks..." but I'm just kind of bored with that. So let me tell you that I'm pretty sure I've 100% immersed myself in the nesting stage of my pregnancy. I've been finishing projects, starting new projects, trying to put the finishing touches on her room, packing all of our hospital bags, and buying last minute things. I'm still hoping to hold out until at least her due date {then at least my mom will be here}. I'm sure my co-workers are thinking otherwise as we have our annual Talent Show ON my due date and I'm in charge of it {uh oh!}. Cross your fingers that she waits until the last day of school!

I took my pictures yesterday when the Mr., my mother in law, and I went out for Mother's Day. Hope you enjoy!

That bump is huge! 

How far along? 38 weeks!
Total weight gain: It seems that I'm holding pretty steady at 30lbs!  
Maternity clothes: More dresses! I will occasionally wear one of the two pair's of Maternity Jeans that I have, but my legs seem to be retaining water and by the end of the day my legs are indented! 
Stretch marks: Still have the silly butt stretch marks. I'm still using my Honest Co. Organic Belly Balm and Nivea Q10 Plus Skin Firming Lotion every day to try and avoid them everywhere else! I still haven't ordered that new stretch mark cream, but I fully intend to this week! 
Workouts: Prenatal Yoga and Walks. Same old, same old here. 
Sleep: It seems I'm getting a little bit better sleep the last couple nights. I haven't been getting up as many times. I did, however, have a few nights last week that I was up for an hour or so at a time. I even watched a coupe shows! My Boppy Pregnancy Wedge is still saving my life, one night at a time. 
Best moment this week: Attending my old roommate {and good friend} RoseAnn's wedding. 
Miss anything? Not at the moment! 
Movement: Most of the time, she is very active. However, one of the sleepless nights last week was because she wasn't moving. I stayed up for over an hour to count her kicks to make sure all was well {I'm pretty paranoid like that}. I drank chocolate milk and watching a show. Finally, I felt comfortable with her movement!  
Food cravings: Oh all I want is a glorious turkey bacon BLT. I'm pretty sure that's what is on the menu for dinner tomorrow night! 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope!
Gender: Girl!
Labor signs: I'm still only have a Braxton Hicks contraction here and there, but nothing consistent. It seems they happen most when I'm moving around a lot and not drinking enough water. 
Belly button in or out? Still in and sneaking it's way out. I'm still not convinced it's gonna pop out before she comes!
Wedding rings on or off? Still only wearing my wedding band. 
Happy or moody most of the time: My irritable mood has seemed to have passed {thank goodness!}. 
Baby Arrival Guesstimate: Still hoping for May 28th or later. Last day of my contract at work is May 27. 
Looking forward to: One of my best friends visiting with her baby boy from Virginia. Can't wait to see her and meet baby Greer! 

Until next time!
