five days for those counting down...five days

How far along? 38 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: definitely more than I planned, but WHATEVER. +45
Maternity clothes? : clothes in general don't work right now
Stretch marks? so far no....5 days to remain stretchie free

Best moment this week: finally listening to my dr. and going on maternity leave early and receiving a beautiful diamond necklace from scott.
Movement: She isn't moving as much as in previous weeks. She has the hiccups a few times a day though. Each little stretch hurts, however I'm not ready for that feeling to be gone. No matter how much it hurts.

Food cravings: oh....everything.
Labor Signs:I've had contractions for most of this week. I've never been so miserable.

Belly Button in or out? flat
What I miss: Can't wait for Jimmy Johns, sleeping on my back, and wearing my wedding rings

What I am looking forward to: lilly's birth in 5 days and having people come meet her at the hospital

Weekly Wisdom: If your dr. tells you not to work anymore because it's causing you anxiety and high blood pressure, listen to her. I figured out you don't get extra prego points for being stubborn and bull just get more contractions and pain. dang.

Milestones: the biggest milestone will be friday, ya'll.

I tried to take some artsy pregnancy pics yesterday. Here are my favorites. :)

Yes, you're right. I liked all the ones where you couldn't see my face. 9 month pregnant face isn't fun or flattering, folks.
