40 Weeks... and a Baby!

Saturday, May 07, 2011

How Far Along: 40 weeks... 10 months preggo!
Size of baby: I know for sure now.... 7 pounds 13 oz.
Total Weight Gain: Pregnancy weight gain grand total is............ 40 pounds even. Not too bad... just a little bit above the 25-35 where I'd hoped to stay. But 40 isn't bad. I'm fine with that!
Maternity Clothes: Oh yes.
Gender: Girl! Gianna Noelle
Movement: All this past week she's been very active!
Sleep: Sleep sucks. It hurts and I do'nt get much of it. Atleast after she comes, sleeping won't hurt anymore!
What I miss: Being able to pick up something if I drop it!
Cravings: Nothing much I can think of!
Best Moment of the Week: Arriving at our weekly Dr's visit and being told we are going to have the baby today!!!!!
Appointments This Week? Yes, we're weekly now. We went in for our 40 weeks appointment where they routinely do a non-stress test and check baby's fluid level. We went in at 9:00 and they did an ultrasound where they saw that Gianna's fluid levels were pretty low. The tech just looked at us and said, "Well, you're probably going to have a baby today!" WHAT? YAY! So from there it was pretty much a whirlwind of excitment. I'll post about her birth in a separate post later one.
What I’m looking forward to: Looking into my baby's eyes!
One Thing I've Learned This Week: God truly means it when he knows how much we can handle. I am so thankful that HE knows my limits, and enables me to meet them with His grace and for his glory.

All ready to go! Let's get this show on the road! :)
