39 week Bump Update

...this may be my last bump update before B-day!! 

How Far Along? 39 weeks 3 days
Size of Baby? About 20 inches and weighing about 7 lbs (mini watermelon)
Maternity Clothes? Getting snug!!
Stretch Marks?  I think it's safe to say I didn't get any. :)
Sleep?. What's that? 
Food Cravings? Lemonade...Regular, Pink, Strawberry, Raspberry... it really doesn't matter.
What I Miss: Sitting up!  I literally have to recline when I sit because Cricket needs the space.  I literally get rhythmic kicks until I do.  I guess I should be impressed that they are rhythmic though. :)
What I'm Looking Forward To: I have a doc appointment on Thursday whereby if I haven't started labor naturally we'll discuss/schedule induction.  So I guess I'm mostly looking forward to meeting my baby this week... that sounds so weird!!! ah!!!
Symptoms?  My emotions are ridiculous.  I'm nervous about a lot of things...taking in the unexpected during labor... handling that first week of being a parent with Matt...recovery.  I've been taking it all one day at a time though. 
Movement? It's more of stretches than actual movement.  I think with the lack of room our lil one is just trying to get comfortable.  
Belly Button In or Out? My sister thinks it's the most fascinating thing ever since it sticks out so much. lol.. rude.
Labor Signs? Braxton-Hicks contractions... yay!
Best Moment of the Week? Matt has been amazing.  I seriously could not ask for a better husband.  He's stepped up helping me get around or just doing stuff around the house.  He calls to check up on me and baby every hour and at night he lays there and talks to the baby about how excited he is to meet.  Melts my heart... he's going to be such a great dad. 
Weekly Wisdom: At this point...I'm at the point of pregnancy known as the "ticking time bomb".  We don't know when I'll pop! My phone starts to blow up at 6:30am with phone calls, texts, e-mails and fb alerts from people wondering on baby status.  I'll be glad when Cricket makes his or her debut and I can just let my phone battery die without guilt. lol

...getting a pedicure tonight after work... so excited!!
