taking a step back... 39 weeks

How far along? 39 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 29 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yes.Black pajama pants from Pea in a Pod.  Love them!
Stretch marks? No. Keeping my fingers crossed!  Still love using my Mama Belly Oil
Sleep: Wednesday night, March 6th was the first night that I did not sleep a wink.  Thursday night was a repeat of Wednesday night.  I am so thankful that this has not been a trend during my pregnancy!
 Other symptoms: My blood pressure was still really high on Monday morning but as soon as I laid down and relaxed it went down.  All of my labs were normal so the midwives were not concerned.   On Friday, around 1:00pm I got really dizzy at school and had to call Nate to come get me.  We went and got checked by the midwives and all was well, just some high bloop pressure and they thought my blood sugar was out of whack based on what I had eaten that day.  Oops.   I got a note to give to my boss to take 20 minute rests 2 times a day in the Cozy Corner while the children were on the playground.  Oh the joys of teaching preschool!  However, I didn't have to use the note because baby Leland was born the next Monday! 
Best moment this week:  Having our baby!
Movement: Yes! Even though he is getting way bigger in there he is moving a lot.
Food cravings:  COCONUT WATER!!!  I have also LOVED having this tea that my lil' sis got me.  It's called Get Maternal by Republic of Tea.  It's so delicious and I don't need to add anything to it because it is the perfect amount of sweet! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope! 
Have you started to show yet: Oh yeah!!
Gender: BOY!
Labor Signs: Braxton hicks contractions!  
Wedding rings on or off? Wedding ring is on, engagement ring is off. 
Happy or Moody: Happy!
  Looking forward to: watching him grow and learning to how to raise a newborn!  

Friday night at Whole Foods for a date night with hubby Nate!
