Maternity clothes: Ready to be done with them.
Stretch Marks: Ugh.
Sleep: "Get your sleep now while you still can..." MY ASS. I cannot sleep. The pain, anxiety, excitement, restless mind and my bladder will not let me.
Belly Button: If it was a turkey timer, it would indicate the turkey is not yet done. I say BULLSHIT.
Labor Signs: Yeah. According to the doc at my last appointment (Monday) it could be "any day now!" It is now Friday and I am cranky. Fool me once, shame on you...
Best Moment This Week:
Doc: There's no sense guessing at whether he's head down or not when you're sitting next to an ultrasound machine...
Doc: Yep, there he is, head down and at -2 station.
Me: Nick! Look at that! He's got a little round Charlie Brown head!
Movement: Starting to slow down. Mr. Wiggles is running out of room in there!
Food cravings: Nah.
Gender: My little boy's due date is in 8 days. I hope he is more like his dad (likes to be early) than his mom (always running late).
What I miss: I don't even remember life before...
What I am looking forward to: Meeting my son!
What I have learned: People don't think twice before asking you about your vagina. When you are 39 weeks pregnant, questions like "Did you get an internal exam?" and "Is your cervix dilated?" are COMMON.
For some reason, (thankfully,) this is something I find hilarious, and not supremely annoying as I have found most other things people say and do.
Milestones: OLIVER YOU ARE DONE! FULL TERM!! GET OUT!!!
P.S. Momma loves you!
