39 Weeks

39 weeks! 6 days left until my due date, 13 days left until 41 weeks which is when my doctor would schedule an induction! I am thinking there is NO way I'll make it to 41 weeks. Not at this point. I was concerned last week that I'd end up having to be induced at 41+ weeks but I feel like she will be here this week. Fingers and toes are crossed that I'm not wrong about this!

I feel like crap again today. I felt very similar to this last Sunday. Light headed, dizzy, headachy, nauseous. I think that's it. 

How far along? 39w1d
How big is baby? Baby is the size of a watermelon. Again, too big.
Total weight gain? Not sure. 30+ pounds.  
Maternity clothes? Yes!
Stretch marks? I'm noticing a few more on my lower belly. Ugh.
Sleep? Meh, not great. I can't get comfortable anymore. No belly sleeping, no back sleeping, if I sleep on my right side my hip goes numb and it hurts, if I sleep on my left side my back hurts. My husband snores, yet continues to deny it :) 
Best moment this week? I got a lot of cleaning done yesterday! Every Saturday I clean, clean, clean thinking that it might be my last chance to make sure everything is picked up. Then the next Saturday comes and I have to do it all over again!
Miss anything? I miss feeling the way I felt yesterday. I hate feeling "sick."
Movement? Yes, lots of movement at night right before bed. Sometimes throughout the day if I'm paying attention. Sometimes I have small freak outs if I don't feel her moving for a long time, and then I'll immediately feel her just as I'm thinking I should call the doctor. I think she's trying to show me who's boss. I didn't feel her moving ALL morning on Friday at work. It was a super busy/stressful day. I decided that I needed to actually leave the building for lunch which I don't normally do. The moment I sat in my car she started wiggling around. Silly little lady.
Food cravings? Bleh. Nothing sounds good.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Something is making me nauseous. Not sure what it is.
Gender? Baby girl!
Labor signs? Yes! Some things that I won't mention here because no one wants to hear about it. But getting random contractions, nothing that ever stays.
Symptoms? Peeing, back aches, exhaustion!!!
Belly button in, or out? It's flat or out all the time.
Wedding rings on or off? I still have my wedding band on, I really really miss my engagement ring. I can't wait to put it back on without having to risk not being able to get it off again!
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy, still very ready to get this show on the road.
Looking forward to? Meeting our baby! Seeing Matt hold her for the first time. Me getting to hold her for the first time!!! Come on baby girl, we want to meet you!!!! Also super looking forward to maternity leave. I might actually cry over having to go back to work tomorrow.
