40 weeks 3 Days

Went to the doctor today…
And
I’ve had some progress, apparently it’s enough for Dr. Austin because,
We will be called in tomorrow night to start the induction process.
Can I get a WOO HOO!
Now here’s to hoping it all goes smoothly…

So here it is…
Final Chalkboard Photo!!

Umm… I just noticed that my grammar is off on this. So let’s ignore that I must have had trouble deciding between “we’ve passed ready” and “we’re past ready”.
OOPS!
We shall call that a pregnancy moment!
How far along? 40weeks & 3 Days
Total weight gain/loss: officially +40lbs. Can’t wait for it to go away 🙂
Maternity clothes? yep… they are just too comfy! I am able to mix in some pajama pants & sports bras though.
Stretch marks? still none! So thankful for that. Guess the real test will be childbirth
Sleep: I am loving naps this week. But still getting bursts of energy. For the most part sleep is pretty good but I have to force myself to not get anxious cause then it’s horrible trying to sleep. 
Best moment this week: it’s a toss up between all the quality time with Brad and our appt today. And the week isn’t even over yet!!
Have you told family and friends: Pretty much hearing from 3-5 different people every day… we are all just waiting! So yep they know 🙂
Miss Anything? My stomach being flat. Sub sandwhiches. Sushi. Alcohol. Eating whatever I want. But none of this is really that bad… cause when he finally arrives it will all be worth it!
Movement: Oh gosh. All The Time! He is such a little mover! I wonder if this is any indication of how he’ll be out of the womb. Ahhh 🙂
Food cravings: Nothing special. I’m still enjoying food in small amounts so thats a good thing!
Anything making you queasy or sick: I’ve had some small moments of nausea this week. It’s strange but it usually happens in the morning or late afternoon.
Gender prediction: I’m pretty much counting on him still being a boy!
Labor Signs: More cramps this morning!!! Some light spotting and of course the occasional contraction.
Belly Button in or out? definitely out
Wedding rings on or off? off still 😦
Happy or Moody most of the time: getting more moody. mostly cause I’m so ready. But I think I’ve done an excellent job being happy this week… all things considered!
Weekly Wisdom: Patience is tougher once your due date passes. Looking back I’m sure I will be more than thankful to have had this extra time to relax/be lazy/prepare for our son. But being overdue really is no fun! 
Looking forward to: Meeting our lil’ man!!
Going to do a little X-mas baking today and spend the evening relaxing.
Of course I”ll be re-packing my hospital bag (just in case I need something else) but really to double quadruple check I have everything and add in a few extra “to-dos” for the long night of waiting.
Also I’m starting to feel a little nervous/anxious so any positive thoughts, extra prayers, good ju-ju sent our way would be much appreciated!
 I know no matter what it will turn out great, and that sometime on Friday we will be holding our sweet baby boy!
Who knows I may even post from the hospital tomorrow night if I get really bored!
Here we go….
