Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 38 Weeks (4/4/13)
Size of baby: 19.75 inches and about 6.8 pounds! Right now our baby is the size of a Pumpkin!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +/- 37 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: Wyatt has started digging into my sides pretty hard.  Sometimes I wonder how he gets so far over there.  
Food Cravings: Still no cravings
Food Aversion: No
What I miss: Being able to do things (like walking) without feeling like a ran a marathon.
Sleep: Sleeping a little better this week.  I think I'm just so exhausted from testing at school and the constant marathon runner feeling. :)
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,  acne (like I'm back in the first trimester) and lower pressure (like he's about to "fall out"!).
Best Moment this Week: Found knobs for the dresser and got all of the prints hung!!  Also, seeing how excited Sean is becoming...he told me he's tired of me getting to be the one to hold him all the time. :) Oh! and I didn't gain any weight on the doctor's scale this week!
What I am Looking Forward To: A little down time at home, hopefully, before he arrives.
