38 Weeks

How far along? 38 weeks
Total weight gain: 42 lbs
Maternity clothes? occasionally, but still wearing bigger-sized regular clothes too!
Sleep: Up every 2 hours to pee
Food cravings: I am craving...FOOD. (and still packing on the pounds!)
Anything making you queasy or sick: There are mushrooms in my fridge and I still don't want them 
Miss anything? Hmm. Being able to bend over and tie my shoes without grunting, putting on pants without falling over, regular clothes, coffee, "The Wreck" from Potbelly's, beer & margaritas, NOT having my thighs rub together. But OBVIOUSLY this is all worth it for this little baby girl and I wouldn't change a thing!
Gender: Baby girl
Labor signs: Braxton Hicks contractions but that's it?!
Have you started to show? Psssh. No. DUH.
Symptoms: Back pain here & there. Nothing to complain about though. I have been so blessed with an easy pregnancy.
Belly Button in or out? Pretty much an outie now. But just barely.
Wedding rings on or off? Off. These chubby fingers said "NO" a long time ago.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy but goodness am I irritable and snap on my poor husband. 
Best Moment this week? Hearing that baby is about 6-7 oz and I am not going to have a 13 lb baby. Seriously. This was a fear of mine. For my lady-parts sake.
Looking forward to anything? Meeting this little girl?! My heart can't stand the excitement. 

Emmah Elizabeth, we are counting down the days!


  1. Your header looks great! And I love how you're spelling Emmah :)

  2. Almost there!! You could seriously meet your little lady ANY DAY!!

    1. AHH! It's crazy. I can't believe there are only two weeks until her due date, but this last month is dragging!

  3. You look so awesome!! (as usual :))) And I love your header!! So excited to see your baby girl's debut SOON!!

  4. What a great record for Emmah of the time you spent waiting for her! She will look at your blog some day and know how much she was wanted! I'm praying for you and Mike and for the amazing future he has for you all!

    1. Thank you :) I hope it will be a good record. I need to start working on a scrapbook!
