Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 40 Weeks (4/18/13)
Size of baby: 20.5 inches and about 7.5-8 pounds! Right now our baby is the size of a jackfruit!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +/- 40 pounds
Maternity Clothes: I'm definitely wearing maternity clothes!  The most comfortable thing to wear now are my sweatpants.
Gender: BOY!!...Wyatt Haischer Dorey!!
Movement: He has stopped moving as much, just mainly at night when I lay down to sleep. Except for the occasional jabbing of the knees and elbows.
Food Cravings: Still no cravings
Food Aversion: No
What I miss: This week I'm really missing my "normal" clothes.  I know it may still be a little while before I can wear all of my old clothes but at least I would have a few more clothing options.  I feel like all I wear are shorts/sweatpants and t-shirts.  Plus the weather is getting increasingly warmer and I don't really have an abundance of clothing for 90 degree weather.
Sleep: I typically wake up around 4/4:30 and stay awake for about an hour or two and then sleep again until about 9.  I feel bad because that means Sean has been waking up that early as well.
Symptoms: Some swelling in my hands and feet, back pain, braxton hicks contractions, some crazy numb/sore/burning feeling on my belly under my breasts,  and lower pressure (like he's about to "fall out"!).  And to add to it...stretch marks.  I forgot to mention them last week, they've only been noticeable for a couple of weeks now. :/
Best Moment this Week: Pampering myself a bit with a pedicure and hair cut.  Other than that, just enjoying some time at home.
What I am Looking Forward To: Wyatt being born!! (Hopefully any day now!)
