38 weeks and a growing boy

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along: 38 weeks
Maternity clothes: For a few more weeks (hopefully)!
Gender: Girl. Emmy Paige
Movement: Yep
Sleep: Good until about 4ish and then I'm just in and out of sleep and uncomfortable.
Cravings: Ummm, just about anything I can chew, ha!  I just can't stop eating.
Symptoms: Just feeling very pregnant.  I feel like my face has finally started putting on some of the weight. 
Total weight gain: Out.of.Control.  26 pounds.  That's up 2 pounds from last week.  Now my goal is to just stay under 30 pounds.  I feel like the first 20ish pounds were just baby, but the last 6 seem to be fat and I can see it in my face and legs, ugh!
What I miss: Being able to run off the extra calories I eat after snacking like a pig!
Best moment of the week: Another doctor visit with a healthy heartbeat.  Although, I didn't make any more progress this week.  Bummer!
What I'm looking forward to: Seeing Emmy!  I just can't wait to hold her and know she is here and healthy.

My baby bump and baby preparations have taken over the blog recently so I made sure to get Bryce in here this week.  My sweet boy is going to turn 3 a month from today.  So sad!  I just can't believe he is already 3.  There is no point in my life that I want to go back to because I just love the present and it always gets better.  However, I think if I could freeze time, now would be it.  Bryce is at the perfect stage right now and I just love it.  He is so smart, funny, playful, and loving.  I'm so glad I get to be his mom!

Best of luck to you and your new baby! How exciting! I love the colors in the nursery. I have an 8 yr. old boy and it goes so fast! Enjoy every minute. It is a special time.
