38 weeks - Baby #2

How far along: 38 weeks, 4 days

Total weight gain: around 38 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: Yep. 

Stretch Marks: Not yet

Sleep:  Sleep has been rough since I stopped taking my Diclegis. I am pretty sure I have restless leg at night, and I wake myself up from it.

Best moment this week: CCC Sale complete! I sold a ton of Grant's clothes that he grew out of (I'd been holding on to all of his baby clothes in case we had a boy) and I got a few cute outfits for Leah.

Movement: Some days I have a ton and other days she's more subdued. She's had the hiccups for a while today already.

Food cravings: Sweets. Mexican. Craved a steak over the weekend -  haha.

Anything making you queasy: Eh, I stopped taking my Diclegis and I've been okay. Little spells of nausea, but I don't actually get sick.

Have you started to show yet:  Yep.  I'm huge. 

Gender prediction:  It's a girl! Leah Brooke.

Labor signs:  At my appointment last week I was 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced.  I have Braxton hicks contractions almost constantly and I have been really crampy.

Belly Button:  It's completely flat now.

Wedding Rings:  Off.

Happy or Moody:  Seriously moody. I'm awful at work.

Weekly Wisdom:  I'm driving myself crazy looking for labor signs, even though I'm a second time mom! I know that I'll know without a doubt that I am in labor (it HURTS!), but I'm still overanalyzing every little ache and pain and wondering if it's the beginning. I'm sure I'm just prolonging it by stressing.

Milestones: We have reached full term. I'm almost 39 weeks (which is when I had my son), so she can come any day now!

Looking forward to: LABOR! I'm so ready to have her. I have to admit that I'm not miserable like I was with Grant. I was super swollen and felt terrible toward the end with Grant.  This time, I feel pretty good! I get out of breath easily and I'm uncomfortable, but it's not unbearable.  I'm really thankful for that.  I really, really hated how swollen I was with baby #1.
