WHW {#90}: 38 Weeks

How Far Along: 38 weeks
Size of Baby: Technically she should be 7 pounds right now, but she was measuring at 7 pounds 2 Fridays ago. But on Monday my stomach was measuring at 36.5 weeks, so...at this point, I know she's in there and she's probably around 7 pounds now. Give or take.

Gender:  Still a girl!

Weight Gain: About 27 pounds as of now

Food Cravings: I would give anything for a milkshake. Or a rootbeer float. 

Food Aversions: None anymore

Movement: Oh yes! My stomach does dances every night when baby girl is super active. We've tried to get it on video but she gets camera shy whenever we try. So in the meantime, we just enjoy watching my stomach change into different weird shapes

Sleep: still sleeping through the night pretty well, just getting up for pee breaks. Occasionally I stay awake for a bit or end up dreaming about stuff related to work and trying to get things done before I go out on maternity leave.

Clothing: Those swing dresses I got from Old Navy are awesome! I wore one last week when it was in the 80s and plan to wear some more tomorrow and Friday when it's in the 80s again.

Other Pregnancy Symptoms: some contractions on Saturday, and on Monday it felt like she had dropped down based on the pressure I was feeling, but that's subsided. She seems pretty comfy all nestled in there.

What I Miss: being able to pick up things with ease when I drop them. Because I drop things all. the. time now haha

Best Moment: Yesterday I saw one of my private school Kindergarten students and his younger sister insisted on waiting for me so that she could give me this cute teddy bear for the baby (with a happy birthday balloon). The mom shared that she had been loving on the bear and was excited to give it to me. She was SO sweet! And along with that, was a huge bag of goodies for the baby, from the boy that I work with. Some families are SO generous and thoughtful--the whole thing really warmed my heart :)
Looking Forward To: baby girl making her arrival whenever she deems it appropriate. Or...when the docs give her the eviction notice on her due date!

Now it's your turn to link up with Jessi and I to share what's hap-"pinning" with you!
