how far along? 9 months (+ 5 days)
maternity clothes? even my maternity shirts are becoming too short to cover my big 'ol belly. target's long and lean tank tops have been my go to tops these past few days
stretch marks? nope
sleep? occurs in nap like segments regardless of the time of day or night. it must be true that your body prepares for the lack of sleep you are to get once a newborn is in the house weeks before the newborn actually makes her appearance. at this rate i should be quite prepared.
best moment last week? successfully reaching the 9 month mark, and hearing my sweet girls heartbeat. the doctor says i am 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced. :)
movement? she's a dancer! it has been so great experiencing all the different movements over the past few months. feeling her movements transition from butterflies to sharp jabs to rolls and tumbles has been one of my favorite experiences throughout this pregnancy.
symptoms? i haven't gained weight (according to the scales) this past month or so, but my belly has grown by leaps and bounds. again, it is crazy what your body does.
gender? girl. Addelyn Elizabeth
nursery? done, except for a few pictures to hang and a screen to put together.
labor signs? well, it's hard to say. ive had plenty of pains the past few days, but don't know what exactly to call them.
belly button in/out? in, don't think it is going to pop out at this point.
what I miss? being comfortable. it is pretty hard to find a comfortable way to sit, lay, walk, etc...
looking forward to? MEETING THIS LITTLE GIRL!!
