38 weeks!

I'm 38 weeks!
Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 38 Weeks
Size of baby: Cora Jane is the size of a watermelon. 
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I've gained 27 pounds. 
Maternity Clothes: This is just my pity party, but I hate that I haven't been able to wear my team colors on Fridays at school.  I hate wearing t-shirts other than when I'm at the house.  I like to support my AU tigers! 
Gender: It's a GIRL! Cora Jane (double name)  
Stretch Marks: Thankfully none yet! 
Belly button in or out: It is almost flush with with the rest of my belly. 
Movement: Cora Jane moves all the time. I love to sit and watch her even though she hurts sometimes. 
Sleep: My sleep has still be really good as long as I've been able to stay asleep. 
What I miss: I miss getting anywhere quickly or picking up something easily.  I seem to drop everything these days. 
Cravings: I've craved pizza, hamburgers, chips and salsa, and of course lemonade. 
Symptoms: My back hurts pretty much all the time and had shortness of breath. 
Best Moments this week: 
  • Getting a massage a Natural Balance.
  • Spending time with my hubby over the weekend.
  • Back rubs by my hubby.
 I've been going to the doctor every week for the past couple of weeks.  We are moving right along.  I went to the doctor today.  I am 3 cm dialated and 70% effaced.  I've progressed a little each week.  At today's appointment the doctor told us it could be ANY day because Cora Jane has already dropped.  We are so excited!  I truly cannot wait to meet our sweet little gift from the Good Lord.  We are praying for a safe labor/delivery and a healthy baby girl.  Hopefully the next post will be Cora Jane's birth story.
