38 Weeks!! 1 Week To Go!

How Far Along: 38 weeks. My induction date has been scheduled for June 8th, 1 week from today!

Size of baby: 19 1/2 inches, about the size of leeks and weighing in at 6.8 pounds.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 11 lbs. I gained 1 lb. this week.

Maternity Clothes: Maternity all the time.

Gender: We're having another little boy, Anderson Moore Wade.

Movement: Less movement during the day, although he's still pretty active at night.

Sleep: Not sleeping good at all right now. I have a serious case of allergies, and at times I feel like I'm going to die from not being able to breathe.

Symptoms: Not as many contractions, but I do have some back pain and pressure.

Cravings: Nothing much. There's no room for food anymore!

What I Miss: Breathing normally, not waddling, aand not being a hormonal mess.

Best Moment this week: Pretty normal week.

What I am looking forward to: 1 week from now we get to meet our little man and I can't wait!

Is your nursery done? It's done! I was super happy with the results, and I'm just so relieved that the room is done.

Are you getting nervous? Not really. I'm definitely more relaxed about delivering this time around now that I know what to expect. However, I do not want the whole "water breaking outside of the labor room" experience so I am nervous about that.

Have you dropped yet? Not that I can tell, but the doctor said he is definitely where he is supposed to be. I'm dilated 4 cm which is a big change from a week ago when I was only dilated 1 1/2 cm.

How do you feel in general? Pretty uncomfortable. It's going to be a long two weeks!

What are you getting the most excited about? Meeting Anderson and watching Jackson's reaction to meeting his baby brother.

Any big fears or concerns? I don't want to be "that" person that didn't know they were in labor. Now that I'm dilated to 4, I'm really scared that I won't know that it's time to go, and by the time I get there that I will be too far gone for an epidural. I am not at all interested in natural childbirth!

What is in your hospital bag? Clothes, makeup/hair, a book, movies for Jackson, and lots more stuff. I'm ready to go!

How many more days until D-Day? 7 days!
