How Far Along: 39 Weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I've gained at least a pound a week since starting my weekly appointments. Jack is growing! I hope he isn't too big because the plan is to go without meds Thursday! :)

Maternity Clothes: Duh?!

Best Moment This Week: Scheduling the induction - I really didn't want my water to break at school or in the middle of the night. I like "knowing" what will happen! And my sweet kiddos at school were starting to get really worried about me having to go to the dr every week. They asked me if I was dying...

Gender: Boy! We are thrilled to add this sweet, little boy to our family!

Movement: Not a wiggly as he's been in the past. he must be running out of womb... haha.

Food Cravings: Milk and cereal, tea, water. That's about it - not like a real craving, just something that if I can get, I want!

Aversions: The teeth-brushing has gotten much better.

What I Miss: Laying on my stomach. Not having heartburn. Not having sciatic nerve pain allllllllllllllllllll day.

Sleep: Propped up on lots of pillows and multiple potty breaks during the night. Also, for some reason, these past couple of weeks I have been waking up super early and can't get back to sleep for at least an hour.

What I'm Looking Forward To: THURSDAY!!! We are inducing and I can't wait to hold Jack! I am so looking forward to tomorrow, too. I lucked out and got a day before Jack's induction to spend with Lucy and TJ. Lucy has declared that she wants to go to the zoo to see the lions. I'm "writing" another blog in my head about Lucy's last days as an only child. It is fast approaching and I have mixed feelings! But all this is for another post...  

Baby's Jack's size: About the length of a mini watermelon
