38 Week Pregnancy Survey

* I put a poll up on the side bar to start guessing Max's birth weight. We can't take bets on when he will be born since we're doing a scheduled c-section so we thought this would be fun. If you'd like to be more specific with your guesses, leave a comment on here. A prize will be rewarded to the closest (if there is a tie, it'll be whoever responded first).

How Far Along: 38 weeks 

Size of baby: Your baby has really plumped up. He weighs about 6.8 pounds and she's over 19 1/2 inches long (like a leek). He has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold his hand for the first time! His organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb.

Total Weight Gain: 28-29 lbs 

Sleep: Still up to pee a few times a night and having a hard time getting comfortable.

Symptoms: I feel completely normal after the version procedure. I was just sore the next day, but after that I don't feel like I had it done.

Cravings: nothing crazy, still loving cereal and desserts.

Gender- Max David 

Movement: He's still in his frank breech position. I can see and feel his little feet on my upper right side poking through with his head around my belly button/left upper side.

Maternity Clothes: Same

Best Moments this week: Having the version procedure over with, even though it didn't work. At least we tried and can now prepare for him to come via c-section. 

What I'm looking forward to: My mom coming into town! She will be here next Wednesday in preparation of my c-section which is scheduled for Fri. Feb. 10th at 9:45AM. She'll stay for a long weekend and then come back a few weeks later to help us out again (what a great mommy I have!). My sister will also be coming in for a long weekend after we get home from the hospital. I am so lucky to have them clear their schedules to come and visit!
I made them valentine themed since we're so close to the holiday and filled them with a variety of candy and chocolates. I think I made 16. I created the tag using a free online template, brought that into powerpoint and then borrowed/stole wording from Leah's nurse goody bags (thanks Leah).
Milestones: We finished our nurse goody bags (just in case) and will be putting up the jungle leaves in Max's room in the next couple days.

To Do List: We really are done with everything. We are going to try to get the car seat installation inspected, I want to make a few more frozen meals, Max's jungle vinyl, House needs to be picked up and cleaned for visitors and Molly needs to be groomed (meaning David needs to cut nails and wash her). 

I can't believe in 1 week we will be parents! This is our last quiet weekend alone in our house with miss. Molly.
