40 Week Pregnancy Survey/Original Due Date

How far along? 40 weeks according to what my original EDD was according to my period. Should have just kept this date in mind the entire time....
 Total weight gain/loss: +0 and still at 180, 39 lbs. total. That was also with clothes on...I am surprised I have not gained more weight this week?  Had gained a little over 41 with Graydon.
How big is baby? The average newborn weighs about 7 1/2 pounds (a small pumpkin) and is about 20 inches long. His skull bones are not yet fused, which allows them to overlap a bit if it's a snug fit through the birth canal during labor. -Baby Center
Maternity clothes?  Yep, the stretchier the better, lol.
Sleep: It is OK but not the greatest. I am just plain sore and ready to have this little girl.  I have been waking up with anxiety some nights and also my right arm and hand have been going really numb and it is painful. I am thankful though that that just started happening, unlike with Graydon where I had it for a couple of months.  
Best moment this week: Well, my appointments at my OB have been decent and the NSTs on the baby always look great. In the words of my doc today "she is happier than words in there" lol.  Worst moment this week....when Graydon went to my inlaws, I miss him!! We just kept thinking I was going to go into labor soon. It's been a bummer not being with him. On the other hand, I have been resting when I want, and even gone to a couple of movies.
Movement: Yep, a lot and it is painful. She is getting big!
Food cravings: Same cravings still...OJ and Apple Juice. Ice cream. Oatmeal. Apples. We had some thai tonight and it was SO good, really hit the spot.
Food aversions:  Nothing really
Gender: Baby girl!
Labor Signs: Lots of shooting pains in my pelvis area, and a lot of pressure. Tuesday I lot my mucous plug. I have lost some other mucous since then but obviously it doesn't necessarily mean you are going to go into labor soon, haha.  
Symptoms:  Lost the plug, pressure, some swelling, not too many contractions.  
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? Uncomfortable and ready!
What I am looking forward to: Same as before...going into labor, plain and simple. I cannot wait to meet this little girl!!! 
What I miss:  Graydon.
Weekly Wisdom:
  Follow your own gut instincts regarding your due date!!!!!!!!
Milestones:  Well, you could look at this either way. I'm an official 40 weeks, or 5 days overdue from my OBs standpoint. Ugh!
Pregnancy Moments with Chris and others: It's funny to watch people's reactions when they see that I am still pregnant, or I tell them that I was due last Sunday.
