38 week Pregnancy Survey

On Saturday morning I got an email update describing what my 38th week of pregnancy should look like.  This was Denbigh's response.

What our 38th week of pregnancy looked like:

Total weight gain/loss: -20 pounds.  yay!  I have lost the 9.5 pounds I gained along with the 10 I had lost/regained after the first 20 weeks of pregnancy.  The first 20 pounds always seem to come right off.  It's the rest of the weight that takes some time.

Maternity clothes? I did wear a maternity dress for our outing to the pediatrician and a family trip to Sam's.  Other than that I have been relaxing in pajamas.

Stretch marks? Yes - they are a little easier to see now.  Most of them were there before but there are a couple of new ones.  We'll be working on helping them fade.  

Sleep: Sleep! Specifically - sleeping on my back!  It's awesome.  Baby girl is a great sleeper as well.

Best moment this week: Going into labor 2.5 weeks early and meeting our sweet girl.

Movement: It's so great seeing the little hands and feet that created so much chaos just a few days ago.

Food cravings: I am still craving salads . .  and fresh fruit.  We have been so blessed already by friends bringing us delicious meals.

Gender: Girl!  Denbigh Annabelle Swearingen

Labor Signs: Yes - we definitely had those.

Belly Button in or out? It was pretty flattened out.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

What I miss:
 I know I will miss feeling her move in my belly but nothing compares to holding that sweet girl in my arms.

What I am looking forward to: Sleeping on my tummy.  :)
