How far along? 38 weeks.

Total weight gain? 28 pounds total at my 36 week appointment AND 37 week appointment. I will update after my appointment tomorrow- pretty sure I've gained weight. I have been scarfing everything down this past week.

UPDATE: 29 pounds total at my 38 week appointment. 

Stretch marks? Still none on my belly!

Sleep? I've been sleeping great! Can't believe I've made it this far without a pregnancy pillow.

Best moment? Finding out that Ramsey Kate has a FULL HEAD OF HAIR at my 36 week appointment!! We vlogged the ultrasound, so you can go watch to get an in-depth look. I'm so excited about it just because it's exactly how I've pictured her the entire time :) OH- and at my 37 week appointment I was dilated 1 cm! Hoping for 2 cm at this week's appointment. FINGERS CROSSED! 

UPDATE: I may be induced as early as Monday evening! (August 15th). I currently meet all the requirements for a 39 week inducement- with one exception. My doctor would like me to be 50% effaced- I am currently only 30%. So with that being said, my next appointment is Monday morning. If I'm 50% effaced by then, we will be calling labor & delivery at 7:30 pm that night. If a room is available (my doctor has two rooms available each day), then we will be heading to the hospital! If not, we will continue calling each day until a room is open!! SO SO EXCITING!!!

Miss anything? I can tell you what I'm NOT missing- my glasses! I'm finally able to wear my contacts to work again without having problems seeing the computer screen. Hopefully it stays this way!

She has definitely not slowed down. She pushes her little butt out constantly and makes my belly looked deformed.. She's definitely a strong little girl now! Always making big movements whenever she moves.
Food cravings? ORANGE JUICE!

How's the bump? My belly was SO itchy below my belly button for a few days, because it's stretching it to max capacity at this point. With that being said, I absolutely do not feel huge. Whenever I see my belly in pictures (especially when I saw it on video for our 'Checking In On Baby' vlog) I cannot believe how MASSIVE it is! It doesn't feel large at all. I definitely can't complain about anything right now. I'm not uncomfortable whatsoever! This pregnancy has been such a breeze. Ramsey Kate has been so sweet to me so far. Hoping that the next few weeks go by quickly and just as smoothly. I can't wait to meet our girl!!

Labor signs? Baby girl has dropped! Our doctor mentioned it at my 36 week appointment (otherwise I probably wouldn't have noticed since she's always been low)- and she definitely has! I have to pee constantly now. I've felt sharp pains in my sides a few times- my doctors have repeatedly reassured me that it's just stretching and that I shouldn't worry as long as it isn't persistent and she's moving well. I have definitely started having pelvic pain as well, so things are stretching and loosening!!!

Wedding rings? Still fit! If I'm out in the heat they definitely get snug until I cool back down though.

Happy or moody most of the time? Anxious. I have never felt so anxious. I want everything ready at all times in case I go into labor. Nobody wants to come home to a messy house!
Looking forward to? Meeting our sweet baby girl!
