1 Day To Go!

•How far along?: 39 weeks...due tomorrow!

•Total weight gain: 30 pounds! I'm was trying to keep within the 25-35 lb range so looks like I'm there!

•How big is baby?: Last week Eli was 8.2, but he is just sitting in there adding fat as we speak!

•Maternity clothes?: Yep.

•Stretch marks?: Just when I thought I was safe, I got two on my stomach a few days ago! My doctor assured me they would be very low and unnoticeable once this big belly goes down--let's hope so!

•Sleep?: Not at all. I think I average about 3-4 hours a night..usually two in the beginning, and one here and there. I'll be a pro at staying up with Eli all night.

•Best moment this week?: Seeing Eli on another ultrasound, having an amazing husband who does everything around the house, and my momma finishing the bedding and curtains!

•Movement?: Still pretty active. He has spurts where he squirms constantly, then sleeps for about 20 minutes. Lots of hiccups!

•Food cravings?: Coffee ice cream!

•Labor signs?: Tons of Braxton-Hicks, but they have been around since about week 25. Every now and then I have an actual contraction that hurts the tiniest bit. He has dropped even more according to the doctor today, and I am one measly centimeter dialated. One.

•Belly button in or out?: It's officially out...way out.

•What I miss: Sleeping on my back & my stomach.  Just sleeping really.

•What I'm looking forward to: Starting labor and seeing his sweet face!

•Milestone: Making it the entire 9 months. I'm hoping Eli will take after his momma and not like to make a late appearance. That gives him one day to get things started. Please don't be like your daddy and be late all the time...okay? Thanks.


  1. I keep checking the blog every day to see if little Eli has made his appearance! I hope the family phone chain will make its way to Texas!

  2. I'm checking daily too! Although I bet you won't be blogging as you are in labor! Can't wait to hear the news!!
