38 Weeks

38 Weeks: Baby O2 is the length of a leek.
The little one weighs 6.8 pounds and is over 19.5 inches long.  This week he/she has really plumped up, the organs have fully matured for the real world, and our baby has a strong grasp to get ready and hold our hands.

How far along? 38 Weeks
Total weight gain? After dr appt on Friday we were up 23 pounds.
Maternity clothes? Mixing both maternity and non-maternity.
Stretch marks? Still nada... can I make it this time around too without getting any?!?
Sleep? Kind of uncomfortable getting settled into a comfy position but falling asleep is really no problem. Teaching all day and hanging with Cole Man all evening must wear me out!
Best moment this week? Date night with Trent this weekend was much needed!  Plus Ashley and the kiddos came down this weekend and stayed the night with us so we had lots of fun seeing the cousins playing together. 
Miss anything? Looking forward to a nice cold Corona with lime...
Movement? I can tell the baby is running out of room as my entire belly will sway and wave as he/she tries moves around.
Food cravings? Thankful for a husband who enjoys nightly ice cream just as much as I do!
Anything making you queasy/sick? Not a thing
Gender? This week I'm back to guessing girl for some reason.  I can't wait to find out if God has picked out another little boy or a little girl to bless our family!!
Labor Signs? Shockingly, when we went to the doctor on Friday we were told we had moved from 1-2 cm to 3 cm dilated.  Holy moly.  We never moved past a 2 with Cole before being induced so I was not expecting to hear 3 cm whatsoever.  Now we're curious if we'll end up having a January baby or if we'll make it to our February 1st due date... or beyond??
Symptoms? Tired in the evenings but still plenty of energy during the day and overall I honestly don't feel like I'm 38+ weeks pregnant.  Feeling good!
Belly button in or out? Out all the time 
Wedding rings on or off? Still on and no swelling yet.
Happy or moody? How can I not be happy... we're so close to the finish line and I was very blessed with another healthy pregnancy.
Looking forward to? One more day to do a few smaller classroom related things and I'll be completely sub ready for maternity leave.  Then it's just a waiting game :)
Daddy moment?  Thanks to Ashley babysitting Cole we were able to enjoy a rare date night with just us two.  We went to Radius Brewery for drinks (for Trent), appetizers, entrees, desserts... we enjoyed it all!  It was so nice to enjoy a meal without entertaining a toddler the whole time.  After dinner we even headed to the movies!  Say what?! We saw American Sniper which was SO good. 
Big Brother Cole moment: We're pretty sure the transition of Cole to his big boy bed can officially be called a success!  He is still going down most nights at normal time no problem and seems to like the space of his bed with his stuffed animals and "pom-poms"... his word for pillows.  We bought side rails to prevent him from falling out but of course he is such a wiggle worm he's fallen off the end- luckily only twice- but still :(  makes mama feel bad!  It's pretty cute in the mornings that he'll now get out of bed and greet us at his door at the gate we set up each night.  There's also been some instances where we see him get out of bed and peek under his door to holler at us.  Didn't take him long to figure that one out!  Overall, we're so proud of how well he handled the transition to a full size bed and are so thankful we got it done before little baby brother/sister joins us!
