How far along? 40 weeks
Total weight gain: 
18.5 pounds
Maternity clothes? For sure.
Stretch marks? Just a few.
Sleep: I’ve been a nervous wreck, so sleep hasn’t been good. I’ve also had menstrual cramps for the past 3 nights from 2am-6am, causing it to be very uncomfortable to sleep on top of the braxton hicks contractions.
Best moment this week: 
The support and love I’ve received from friends and family, checking up on me.
Miss Anything? Sleep.
Movement: Still lots of movement. I’m going to miss this.
Food cravings: Grilled cheeses and tomato sandwich…mostly because I don’t feel like ‘cooking’.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Gender: It’s a surprise! And I can’t wait to find out today!
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks contractions, and still 2 cm dilated and 85% effaced. Being induced at 7am this morning.
Symptoms: Feeling heavy, pressure in the pelvis, menstrual-like cramps.
Belly Button in or out? Flat.
Wedding rings on or off? On and fitting loosely.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Nervous.
Looking forward to: Meeting the baby and getting into a routine as a family of four. I can’t believe this is my last pregnancy post!
