38 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along:
38 Weeks
Size of baby: 19 1/2 inches long and weighs about 6.8 lbs. Jillian is the length of a leek!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 30lbs
Maternity Clothes: Yes-all maternity clothes except for some dresses.
Gender: Girl!
Movement: She is still moving daily but her movements have really slowed down over the past week. My doctor said this is normal at this point in my pregnancy. As excited as I am about her coming, I am going to miss those sweet little movements!
Sleep: I am sleeping ok. Just the typical end of pregnancy sleep that gets you ready for a newborn. :)
Symptoms: Crazy dreams (they just keep getting more and more weird), reflux, contractions and I think I am constantly going to the bathroom!
What I miss: Not a thing.
Cravings: No cravings. I really don't have room for much food. :)
Best Moment this week: Being able to say that she will be here THIS WEEK!
What I am looking forward to: Meeting our daughter this week!

I go tomorrow for my pre-op blood work at the hospital and then for my weekly doctor's appointment to check on Jillian. Then, Friday is the BIG DAY unless she comes before then. We are ready to meet her but we hope she hangs out until Friday morning! :) I think I have said at least 100 times in the past few days that I cannot believe we are having a baby this week!!!

4 days or less!!!

I've been following your blog for a while, but have never commented. Wow, it looks like everyone said it already, but you look AMAZING! Your family is already so precious and Jillian will just add more preciousness! :) Thanks for sharing this special time in the life of your family. Kellie

You look so beautiful and I am so happy for you and your little family. Seems like I have been following you forever (pre kid). Being a Mommy to two is the best feeling in the world. It is exhausting, it is hard but oh so worth it.

Praying for all of you as you enter the next journey in your life and knowing that God is going to be with you and Baby Jillian as she makes her way into the world.

Little Brody, you are going to be a great big brother.

Nancy said...

May God surround you as you welcome your new daughter on Friday. Jillian Kate is a lucky little girl to be getting such wonderful parents and a great big brother. Can't wait to see pictures of your new little princess, I know she is going to be gorgeous, just like her Mommy. You have continued to look beautiful your whole pregnancy! Keep smiling, you only have a couple more days.

Hugs,
