39 Weeks

39 Weeks:

How your baby's growing:

Your baby's waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it's likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath
What baby looks like this week:
How far along: 39 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 32lbs (I think)

Maternity clothes: Yeppers!

Stretch marks: Same two that I had last week!!

Sleep: Yes please! Been blessed to have gotten a lot of sleep lately. Yay!

Best moment this week: Hearing Mason’s heartbeat, how I live for that precious sound and seeing him on the sonogram.

Movement: Yes, and I can tell how strong my sweet boy is getting. I have so much pressure every time he moves.

Food cravings: Mashed Potatoes, Gatorade, fruit, etc.

Food aversions: Not really

Gender: Still a boy. The sono tech is very good about showing me his “testicles” in every sonogram. Makes me giggle! LOL

Labor Signs: Contractions! Back pain!

Belly Button in or out: Flat and sometimes out!

What I miss: my ankles!!!

What I am looking forward to: Meeting our son, very very soon! Can’t wait for our appt on Wednesday! Hoping for great news.
