38 Weeks

38 weeks

Well, the hospital bags are officially packed – things are getting real, y’all!  The countdown to meeting little Molly June is officially on….

How far along: 38 weeks and the size of a pumpkin – so fitting for fall! – over 19.5 inches long and about 6.8 pounds.

Gender: Baby Girl

Sleep: I think my nights of decent sleep have come to end.  It hasn’t helped that I’ve been sick and not breathing well at night, but adding aching hips, frequent trips to the bathroom, and heartburn to the mix makes for an interesting night’s sleep for sure.  Might as well get used to this now!

Best moment this week: We went out Saturday for a night on the town celebrating a friend’s wedding, and we had so much fun!  I have a group of friends who all met freshman year of college living on the same hall in our dorm, and somehow we have managed to continue these friendships 13 years later.  Some of us live pretty close to one another, so we are fortunate enough to get together once a month for dinner.  I love these ladies and cherish these friendships so much!  We had such a blast dancing the night away – well, let’s be honest – I danced the night away from my chair since my back was killing me!!  🙂

Miss anything: Being able to relax and enjoy downtime.  I drag so much during the weeknight evenings, so once the weekends roll around I have been running around like a crazy lady trying to get everything in order for Molly’s arrival.  I am feeling pretty good about where things are right now, though, so I’m hoping to relax a bit this weekend if I can.

Movement/Symptoms: I think I’ve been feeling some Braxton Hicks contractions lately –  I just hope that I will know the difference when the real thing starts!  It won’t be long now…

Cravings: Now that fall is here I am adding pumpkin to list of things I’ve been craving!  I pretty much crave that every fall, though.  Today I bought a pumpkin, chocolate, caramel popcorn mix that was divine and pumpkin pancake and waffle mix that I can’t wait to test out soon.  I’ve also had a couple of Pumpkin Spice Lattes as well… my favorite!

Looking forward to: Seeing my sister in 3 days!!!!  My good friend Dave who I have worked with since I graduated from college almost a decade ago (yikes!) is getting married this weekend, and Kat is flying in to photograph the event!  Although Dave’s mom and fiance were betting that Molly would arrive before the wedding and I wouldn’t make it, I’m determined to be there!  It will be such a special day, and I’m excited to get some quality time with my sister this weekend, too!  Here’s hoping Molly will hang tight for at least another week or so… 🙂
