37-38 Weeks...



How Far Along? 
38 weeks exactly... I think this is the first time I have posted on the "correct day" this pregnancy.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 
I have not weighed myself... and don't feel like wondering to the scale. We will just say 50-60 lbs. 

Baby Related Purchases: 

It has been cold so much lately that I have felt the need to buy a few things for if it is really cold when baby E comes... but now that we are prepared it will 60 and sunny the rest of the winter.

Maternity Clothes: 
Ummm... whatever I can fit in this point.

Sleep: 
I have had some really bad nights and some really good nights. Hoping to sleep well until he comes (and after)!

Movement: 
So much movement and so many hiccups! 

What I miss: 
Having normal energy... it is just so unpredictable right now. I can be fine one minute and feel so tired the next. This also could be attributed to being a mom to two other kids, while working, and being pregnant!

Cravings: 
I did randomly make a batch of chocolate chip cookies for myself Sunday.

Anything making you queasy or sick: 
Nothing too bad right now!

Gender:
It's a BOY!!!

Everett Cole :)




Labor Signs: 
Nothing really. My hope is sometime 1/23-1/26... if only babies just followed when you want them to come.

Symptoms:

I think its pretty obvious I'm pregnant ;)

Best moments this week: 
So many good moments... 

* The last of the Christmas festivities...



* New Years... and the kiddos got so into it!

* Celebrating our NINE year anniversary (which is actually on 1/10) 

* Visiting my sweet friend and coworkers baby. We had due dates only two weeks apart... but I have a feeling they will be born about a month apart (and that when Everett come he will already be bigger).

* Sweet family time

* Winning the national championship... oh wait, we didn't. But we were there. And next year's our year :)

* Hearing my Andrew speak... if you are a college/20s age and live in Augusta, let me know! I would love to connect you with a greta ministry!

Looking forward: 
Finishing prepping the house... aka nesting.
BABY!


Size of Baby: 
Right now it says a head of spaghetti squash... and another says a Pomeranian. 

For the little:
With in the next three weeks you will be here! I know its going to go by quick, so I am trying to soak in these baby kicks and hiccups and not complain about end of pregnancy woes. I am going to enjoy the next couple of weeks, but I know I will enjoy holding you even more. Praying for you each day!

Bailey Drew and Jameson are so pumped too. My belly gets endless kisses and I am sure when you get here you will get endless kisses!

34-36 Weeks...




How Far Along? 
36 weeks and some change! Almost into baby any day zone! Of course if you ask Andrew he says baby E needs to come on 12/31... anyone guess why?

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 
Just 50 pounds... hopefully just a couple pound more! 

Baby Related Purchases: 
We were blessed with a wonderful "sprinkle" and now baby E has plenty of clothes and wipes! 
Sweet friend and I have due dates that are 2 weeks apart.

Maternity Clothes: 
I am getting to that end point where nothing feels like it quite fits me, even the maternity clothes. 

Sleep: 
Sleep has gotten a little uncomfortable again. Switching sides a lot.

Movement: 
He is still really moving and has hiccups all the time!

What I miss: 
Being my normal weight. Every time I get up I can just feel how much heavier I am than normal. I feel it just moving around and doing normal chores.

Cravings: 
This has not been a major craving pregnancy. Nothing that really stand out.

Anything making you queasy or sick: 
I am back to having bad taste sin my mouth from time to time. And some heart bun and indigestion. Maybe Everett will have hair???

Gender:
It's a BOY!!!

Everett Cole :)




Labor Signs: 
Still sporadic Braxton Hicks. Last night I was having trouble sleeping and he was moving a lot with some Braxton Hicks. For a moment I thought, "No way he is coming now!" I am sure there will be no labor until the end of January. 

Symptoms:

Belly and kicks... and now some swelling :(!

Best moments this week: 
So many good moments... I will probably miss some!

* So many house/yard things to get done... we did manage to have some fun in the midst of it all
Playing in the leaves...
 *Lights at the zoo with sweet friends!



  *All the cookie decorating
                                                        
                                                         *BD's ballet recital
  


  *So many Christmas Celebrations!!!






 *Friends coming all the way to visit us since I am past the point of traveling! 


Looking forward: 
Getting the rest of my prepping and nesting in.
Baby time!


Size of Baby: 
Right now it says a head of romaine lettuce... and another says a chihuahua. Maybe a really large overweight chihauahua???

For the little:
We are almost there! In less than a week, it could be any day... though we don't expect your arrival until late January (just don't make it February okay :)). We can't wait to hold you and pray for you each and every day!!!
