Pregnancy Update - 38 Weeks

I've been too tired to do my usual Tuesday updates, but this will be a quick one!

I'll be 38 weeks tomorrow. And I am SO READY. All I do is make noises when I try to move, and when I just sit still. I am not having any issues with swelling hands or feet (still have on my wedding band this time around!) but everything between my neck and thighs is just uncomfortable. There are places I didn't realize could hurt. Or maybe they did last time and I forgot.

My shirts are getting too small and my bras are definitely crying to be traded out for ones a tad bigger. But I am so close to the end that I don't want to spend the money on a bra for just a few weeks.

I'm eating pineapple, spicy foods, and plan on walking up and down the stairs in our foyer after this post. =) I want to get things moving. I know he will come when he's ready, and that if I go into labor after eating the 2 lbs of pineapple I bought, it will just be coincidence.

My next appointment is set for Tuesday and I have a growth ultrasound that day also. My last one was at 34 weeks and he was estimated to weigh 6 lbs 2 oz. I'm interested to see if he is really gaining 1/2 lb a week like all the books say they do at the end. If so, his estimate would be around 8 lbs 2 oz since it will be fours weeks time. =0 Like I said in previous posts, I'm not really to worried that he will be huge. I still am thinking he's long. I hope to find out soon.

I still keep track of my weight even though my exercise has been almost non-existent. And I told Andrew I find it funny because the past month I've been gaining exactly 1 lb per week. Not an ounce more or less. I'm doing so much better this time than I did with my weight last pregnancy.

Here are my 38 week pictures!
