39 Week Survey- Baby O #2

How far along? 39 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +2 up to 180, 39 lbs. total. Had gained a little over 40 with Graydon. How big is this baby going to be?!
How big is baby? Baby's waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it's likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath. -Baby Center
Maternity clothes?  Yep, the stretchier the better, lol.
Sleep: It is OK but not the greatest. I wake up every couple of hours now and usually just get up to use the bathroom and readjust. By the time I wake up I'm in pain from not moving for a while.  
Best moment this week: Spending time with Lyn Friday morning and having a date night with Chris on Saturday night. We went and saw Silver Linings Playbook, great movie!
Movement: Yep, a lot and it is painful. She is getting big!
Food cravings: Juice seems to be the big one. I could drink it all day long. Also sweets and comfort foods.
Food aversions:  Nothing really
Gender: Baby girl!
Labor Signs: Shooting pains around my bladder etc. I remember feeling the same pains with Graydon and my OB had told me that was the babies head coming down etc. Also lots of contractions. 
Symptoms:  Tired. Contractions. Heartburn. A bit of swelling. 
Belly Button in or out? Poking out!
Wedding rings on or off?  Still on, makes me very happy.
Stretchmarks? Just around my belly button.
How are you feeling? Anxious. Every day I wonder if my labor will start! Trying to be patient.
What I am looking forward to: Ummmm how about having this baby?? LOL. But in the meantime.. Tomorrow evening Nancy and I are going to work on a project for the nursery.  Thursday is my last day of work (YIKES!!) and Valentine's Day, Friday morning is my next OB appointment...and we have no plans this weekend. Please come out baby!!!!!!!
What I miss:  Not being in pain, lol.
Weekly Wisdom:
  .....I don't know. Patience again?
Milestones:  1 weeks left!  Last week of work! Wooot!
Pregnancy Moments with Chris and others: There are just too many that I can't even recall them anymore.

39 Weeks along:
