39 Weeks / Last Update!

It's so weird to think that this is my last update....also weird knowing that TOMORROW I will be at the hospital having my baby boy!  Our induction is scheduled for 8am and I am SO anxious and nervous but mostly EXCITED!  I can't wait to meet Carson Anthony!

I feel like everything at school is ready.  I don't get a sub for my reading position so I had to pack up my room (talk about a pain at 39w pregnant)!  I did as good as I could and might have to go back right after school ends.  As far as my kindergarten class, I have everything ready for my sub: report cards are done, plans are done, classroom is organized, kids are ready!

According to the Bump, Carson is about the size of a Watermelon at 6.2-9.2lbs.  Eek...let's hope he's closer to 6-7lbs rather than 9!  Baby Center says that Carson weighs as much as a Mini Watermelon at a little over 7lbs.  I like that estimate better than 9.2lbs!  Anyone have any guesses on Carson's length/weight?!?!  I'm so curious and have NO idea what to expect!  I'm thinking high 7's to 8lbs maybe and around 20.5-21"...??  Total stab in the dark there.

How far along? 39 Weeks...officially 9 months pregnant according to this site!
Total weight gain: Still on that 1lb a week plan....I was up 28lbs at my 39w appointment!
Maternity clothes? Yes and I'm anxious to start wearing some of my old clothes.  Not getting too hopeful but I'm hoping I won't be in maternity clothes all summer, lol..I don't even have any shorts! (Scroll down for my newest bump pic!)
Stretch marks? nope.  I thought I found some the other morning but they were actually creases from my sheets from sleeping, ha!
Sleep: Not wonderful but it's not awful either.  It's getting so hard to turn over and I have been tossing and turning a lot!  I still get up a lot to pee but that's been the entire pregnancy basically!
Best moment this week: Since technically tomorrow is still this week I'm going to go ahead and say having Carson is the best moment...can't wait!
Miss Anything? I miss having a tan and I also miss NOT having to pee every 5 minutes! :)
Movement: Carson's movements have still been slow but Dr. G said that he's probably just out of room.  She's happy with the amount of movement we've reported and he still has random dance sessions so I'm happy with that!
Food cravings: Still love ice in all of my drinks! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Gender: Baby BOY Carson! <3
Labor Signs: Nothing new....progressing a little bit as far as my stats.  At my 39week appointment I was over 3cm ("3+" according to Dr. G) and 80% effaced.  She also stripped my membranes to get things going!
Symptoms: BACK PAIN!  We had a zoo field trip Tuesday and after being on my feet and walking the ENTIRE time (except to eat a quick lunch), my back was KILLING me.  I felt like an 80 year old woman.  It still hurts today but surprisingly, it's better when I'm on my feet.  I feel it the most after sitting or laying down.  Weird.
Belly Button in or out? Halfie...I want my old super innie back!
Wedding rings on or off? Off!  They weren't too tight but with the hot weather I was starting to panic that they *might* get too tight (paranoid much?!)  I went to Kohls and bought a cheap-o ring so people wouldn't judge me (especially since I feel like I look 16)!  My rings still fit so I need to decide if I should wear them to the hospital or not.
Happy or Moody most of the time: SO SO SO EXCITED!
Looking forward to: Meeting Carson TOMORROW!

Here is my bump at 39 Weeks..last official bump picture and LAST DAY AT WORK! P.S. I'm aware that I look like I got fried in the sun.  Somehow the white balance settings on my camera got messed up.  I promise I'm not a tomato in real life! :)

Ahhhhh, I'm so excited and I even got choaked up reading this! Ugh, pregnancy hormones!!!!

My guess is that he will be in the 7 lb range...let's go with 7 lbs 7 ounces. And I think he will be ummmmm 20 inches long.

I will be sitting by my phone ALL day tomorrow...please keep me posted. I promise I will do the same for you when my time comes! :)

I <3 you and good luck! I'm sending prayers and good vibes your way!

Can't wait to meet little boy :)
