39 Weeks

How far along? 39 Weeks, Wednesday 7/25/2012  
how are you measuring? 1 cm, 50% effaced (no changes)
size of baby? Watermelon, 19-22 in, 7.5 lbs

heartbeat? mid 130s (she caught the baby in the middle of an acceleration so it was up in the 150s and then came back down to the 130s)

total weight gain/loss? 35 lbs 
maternity clothes? Yes.  Some of my maternity shirts are almost too short that my belly is showing.  I am ready to be back in my normal clothes.  I just dread getting dressed for "work".

stretch marks? Still none :)

sleep? Sleep has been hit or miss this week.  I don't have a problem falling asleep initially, but then I wake up a ton to readjust.

best moment this week?  Having a final end date.  At our appointment on Monday we scheduled an induction for August 10th.  That puts me at 41 weeks 2 days.  I sure hope we don't have to go that long, but it's just nice to know there is an end in sight.
movement? Movements have definitely slowed down.  The baby squirms but it's more of nudges. haha  Baby has run out of room.  I get heels jabbing me on the right side all of the time!  I'm definitely going to miss feeling this little one squirming around all day.

food cravings? Fruit

gender predictions? I'm going to say it's a stubborn boy following in his daddy's footsteps being late.

what i miss: The ease of getting up from sitting or laying down and rolling over.

what i'm looking forward to: Meeting this little one.  Come on Baby Adcock!

how are you feeling? So today is the first day I was uncomfortable when I got up.  I was just not looking forward to going to the hospital to round on patients.  I had lots of contractions last night, so I don't know if that's why I was so uncomfortable this morning or what the deal was.  I'm feeling better now and survived running around the hospital one more day.

Development this week:  Today starts week 40 of development.  This is the last week of pregnancy (hopefully).  Baby can come any day now.  About half of all pregnancies proceed past the 40-week mark.  YIKES!!!  (According to What to Expect When You're Expecting)
