Baby T#2 39 Weeks

39 Weeks with Graham
 
39 weeks with Hannah, I still had TWO more weeks to go with her!!  I can't even imagine that right now.
 
Pregnancy Highlights:
 
How Far Along: 39 Weeks, this is my LAST weekly update EVER!!
 
Size of baby: Baby Graham weighs over 7 lbs and is over 20 inches (according to Baby Center) and is the size of a small watermelon.  I'm guessing right now that he's closer to 9lbs than 7lbs!  He will be here TOMORROW so we'll know for sure then!  My belly is BIG!  People make comments all the time.  Most of them are strangers so that's always nice...
 
Total Weight Gain: 25 lbs.  I've gained one extra lb with Graham than I did with Hannah but I started out smaller than I did with her.  It's crazy how closely my weight gain was for both pregnancies.  
 
Maternity Clothes: All maternity clothes
   
Gender: It's a BOY!!!  
  
Movement: Graham is still moving but much less than ever before, just because he's out of room.  I usually only feel his arms and legs moving around and sometimes his bottom.  I think the little guy is ready to be out and stretch his legs!
 
Sleep: Sleep is terrible right now.  I remember at this stage with Hannah it was this way.  I'm only hoping that it's the same with Graham as it was with Hannah and he sleeps well.  I can hope, right?!
 
What I miss: Sleeping well.  Not being in pain.  
  
Cravings: Chocolate!  He's probably going to have a pretty good sweet tooth just like his big sister thanks to my sweet cravings.
 
Symptoms: Heartburn is still a constant but not too bad, I just take TUMS like it's my job.  Tons of BH contractions still.  Last weekend I woke up with back pain followed by painful contractions between 7-10 mins apart and those lasted over two hours.  I finally got up at 5am to get in the shower since I figured this was it and they went away.  Of course!  My legs and hips were so sore the next day.  The rest of the week has been pretty uneventful and I've just been resting as much as possible.
 
Best Moment this week: Getting a great Dr report on Monday.  He's happy as can be in there and is one big boy!!  I can't wait to meet him tomorrow and finally see just how big he is and see how much he looks like his big sister.

This girl is ready too!  She can't wait for her little brother to get here!  She's going to be such a great big sister.  We've been talking all week to her about how he's coming and we showed her videos of the day she was born so she's ready!
