Due Date Survey- Baby O #2

How far along? 40 weeks according to what my OB changed my EDD to.
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 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: I had a great final week at work last week, and everyone there was so amazing. I had a great last day of work and my boss bought me lunch. A huge group of us ate at Six One Six. Friday morning Chris and I had breakfast at the Omelette Shoppe and then came to my OB appointment with me. Saturday I finished the nursery decor. I will post an update but it doesn't show everything because I do not want to reveal the name yet.  Sunday we went to church and spent the afternoon with Mike and Lyn. Today was my first day as a SAHM. AWESOME!!
Movement: Yep, a lot and it is painful. She is getting big!
Food cravings: OJ and Apple Juice. Ice cream. Oatmeal. Apples.
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? Still feeling very anxious, even more so now...
What I am looking forward to: Going into labor, plain and simple. I cannot wait to meet this little girl!!! 
What I miss:  Not being in pain, lol.
Weekly Wisdom:
  .....I don't know. Patience again?
Milestones:  Hit my estimated due date...patiently waiting now.....
Pregnancy Moments with Chris and others: Chris: Even your uterus is maternal and motherly and just doesn't want to let go of that's going to hold onto it as long as possible...hahahaha.
