40 Weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 40 Weeks, it's Hannah's DUE DATE!!!!  I can't believe it!
Size of baby: Hannah is about the size of a watermelon, BIG!  
Total Weight Gain: 23 lbs 
Maternity Clothes: All maternity clothes
GenderGIRL!!! Hannah Lee Townsend
Movement: Hannah loves moving around but she's out of room in there!  Her movements are big and they hurt a lot of the time now.  I think she's trying to get out of there half the time, seriously.  It's really uncomfortable when she moves but I'm cherishing each time because I know there isn't much time left to feel her moving around in there.   
Sleep: What's sleep??  I wake up pretty much at the same times each night and sometimes I wake up super early in the mornings, like 5-6am for absolutely no reason.  Not a huge fan of that....
Cravings: Sweets, ice cream
What I Miss: Moving around like a normal person and sleeping through the night
Symptoms: Heartburn ALL THE TIME, absent mindedness, swelling, shortness of breath, LOTS of BH contractions.  Hannah is dropping more each day according to my Dr but as of Tuesday when we went to the Dr I hadn't made any other progress since last weeks appt.  :(  I was soooo disappointed but we're going back to the Dr tomorrow to get checked again and then we'll have a plan set for Hannah's arrival.  I was hoping I wouldn't have to be induced but we'll see what the Dr says at the appt.  Hannah is getting too big for her Mommy and needs to come out so we'll do what needs to be done!  My Dr even said to me on Tuesday "oh, your poor belly" because it is FULL of our baby girl!  Tracy felt my belly on Monday and said "it's so hard, you don't have any soft spots" because there are none, Hannah is taking up ALL the room!  I've been telling people that for weeks, I don't know why no one believed me.  Ha!  
Best moment this week: Reaching her due date!  She's now officially late and needs to make her appearance ASAP!  We can't wait to meet her and hold her in our arms!!  Austin said earlier this week that he thinks she's going to show up today because she's her Mommy's daughter and I'm ALWAYS on time for everything!  Ha!  For real, even when I just say "I'll be at your house around 6" I always end up pulling up to the house at 6pm exactly, I don't know why it always works out like that but it does.  I'm always on time even when I'm not trying to be.  So, maybe Miss Hannah is the same way and didn't want to show up to the party early!  We'll see, there are a few hours left on her due date but my guess is that she'll be showing up on Monday.  If only she knew how much room she's going to have in the "outside world" I think she'd be out of my belly in a heartbeat!

We had Chinese food last night (Austin was trying the spicy food route to get Hannah to come out, didn't work) and these were our fortunes!  Right after I got pregnant one of my fortunes was "Daughter" and that turned out to be true so if I had gone into labor last night I was going to buy a lotto ticket with those numbers!  Ha!

I'm so so excited for you! I'm sure you are very eager to meet your little girl and she will be here any time. I hope Austin or someone will update your blog once she makes her arrival!! I bet the next time you write a post it will be to introduce Miss Hannah!!
