Baby Maples is the size of a little pumpkin!

How far along? 38 weeks
Maternity clothes? yes, but mostly my maxi and shift dresses
Stretch marks? not yet
Sleep: sleeping has been a little bit better, probably because I have been so tired here lately
Best moment this week: went to the doctor and I am now 70% effaced and have dilated 2cm! Woot! Woot! Also, the bookshelves finally came in so the nursery is now complete!
Miss anything? being comfortable and having energy
Movement: she is still a mover – kicks my ribs all the time
Food cravings: sweets! all I want is cheesecake, brownies, ice cream – but have settled for fruit and cream cheese dip… and cheesecake and ice-cream! 😉
Food aversions: not food aversions, just acid reflux still – so bad actually, that early this week I threw up in the middle of brushing my teeth…. yeah, it was lovely
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: a few Braxton Hicks contractions and mild cramping
Symptoms: Fatigue, Braxton Hicks contractions, sore hips and back, acid reflux
Belly Button in or out? still half in and half out, kinda flat – it is just all kinds of werid
Wedding rings on or off? on but they do feel tighter
Mood: happy, anxious and excited
Looking forward to: D-Day and meeting our little girl!

Our bags are packed, the nursery is complete – we are ready for our little one’s arrival! Hopefully in the next post we will be introducing our daughter! 🙂
