38 Weeks

My last and final checkup was today.
So thankful to be 38 weeks along.
I had not gained any weight.
Baby's heart rate was 144.
I was measuring at 39 weeks.
I am, of course, neither dilated or effaced. My cervix knows nothing of the sort.
The contractions have subsided and are now back to being just Braxton Hicks contractions. Thank you Lord!

Sleeping is impossible. Which means I will undoubtedly be prepared for the sleepless nights that are sure to befall me 7 days from now.
I am H.O.T. all the time. Chad thinks our house is an ice box.
I have a tiny foot sticking out the right side of my stomach at all times. At ALL times.
I have a hunch that this might be my biggest baby yet. I don't know why. I just feel like she might be huge. Maybe I will be wrong. I figured Sam would surely be a 10-pounder since his sister was so big and since he was a boy, but I ended up being surprised. So we shall see.

So we're officially one week away! I have to be at the hospital at 5:15 am next Tuesday and the cesarean is scheduled for 7:15am - exciting! I'll keep everyone posted and I am definitely posting some nursery pictures before the week is over, I promise.
