How Far Along: 39 weeks
Size of Baby: According to The Bump, the baby is the size of a watermelon. We had an ultrasound last week and they're estimating that Emery already weighs 8 pounds, 5 ounces and that she'll be around 22 inches long!! Her legs already measured 40 weeks and 6 days! She's going to be tall like her daddy.
Total Weight Gain: About 35 pounds according to the last time I looked. Considering our nightly ice cream and milkshake outings, I'm sure it's more by now.
Gender: It's a girl!! Her name is Emery Faith.
Maternity Clothes: Yes! I'm home this week so I've been loving my maternity leggings with big, comfy t-shirts.
Wedding Rings On/Off: Yep, they're still fine. I've had some swelling in my hands, but it goes away pretty quickly.
Stretch Marks: Same ones.
Cravings/Aversions: Yesterday, I woke up thinking about egg salad sandwiches. I know, super random. I have no idea where that craving came from...it's probably been a couple of years since I had egg salad. I remember craving deviled eggs when I was about 5-6 weeks pregnant and thinking it was so weird. I was home yesterday so I made egg salad for lunch...and it was amazing. That's right, I said it. Egg salad = amazing.
Symptoms: The biggest things are still the swelling and being incredibly tired. The heartburn is completely gone...I had a hunch it was work related and I really think it was. I didn't really get it on the weekends and haven't had it since last week. I'm very thankful for how good I actually feel! I know some women are absolutely miserable at the end and I don't feel that way at all!
Movement: I think she's moving even more lately...or maybe I'm just being more still and I notice it more often. Her little feet *love* to push up into my ribs on my right side...that's really the only spot I've been feeling her lately. I feel it all the time, though. I guess she needs to stretch out those long legs!
Mood: Happy, excited, and nervous! Getting a little more nervous and excited every day...
What I Miss: Nothing!!
Looking Forward To: Meeting this baby girl!! We're ready for her!!
