Pregnancy Updates!

Wow! I can hardly believe I am just a couple days away from my due date. I have been so busy getting everything ready for baby girl and spending lots of quality time with my hubby, family, and friends that I have neglected the blog. I'm trying to play catch up before baby girl makes her debut!
Today I am 39 weeks and 2 days! At our appointment yesterday I was 2 cm. dilated and 50% effaced so now it's just a waiting game and we couldn't be more excited!

How far along?  39 weeks and 2 days!!! 
Total weight gain/loss: 35 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yep
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep: Sleeping through the night started getting more difficult around 36 weeks but for the most part I am able to sleep well through the night.
Best moments: There have been so many "best moments" throughout my pregnancy. I have loved being pregnant and sharing this experience with the people I love most. Everyone is so excited for Leah it just melts my heart.  We have the most caring family and friends. 
Nesting and getting everything ready for Leah with my husband has been the biggest highlight of my pregnancy. Leah is so lucky to have such an amazing Daddy. He has never missed one doctor appointment and has been the most supportive and caring husband during our whole pregnancy. He is such an amazing husband and I know he will an incredible father :)
Miss Anything? I miss my energy and being able to move around like I used too! Around 34 weeks is when I definitely started to feel a lot more pregnant. My body started to ache a lot (back, hips, etc.). 
Movement: Yep, lots and they are stronger than ever! David and I will just watch her move in amazement.  Around 31 weeks we started to see elbows and knees popping up...very cool!
Food cravings: Nothing strange! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, but I have had terrible heartburn all throughout my 3rd trimester (Thank goodness for Tums!)
Have you started to show yet: Yep
Gender: GIRL :) 
Labor Signs: None besides baby girl has dropped and I'm feeling a lot of pressure and occasional sharp pains. At my last appointment (12/18/12) I was 2 cm. dilated and 50% effaced. 
Wedding rings on or off? On 
Happy or Moody most of the time: Very happy and excited!!!
Looking forward to: Meeting and holding our baby girl....WE CANNOT WAIT!!! :)

Some important notes I put in my iPhone that haven't made it on the blog that I want to make sure to include so I don't forget: 

Week 27 - First time I felt her hiccup! From about 35 weeks on I feel her hiccup about once a day :)
Week 28: Constant movement - really started to pop bump wise!
Week 29 - Started feeling kicks in the ribs
Week 31 - Started to really feel elbows and knees with her movements! We also started our baby classes this week :)
November 18th - VERY strong hiccups started! 

Instagram updates on life lately :)
The hubby is finished with finals and clinic so we are spending our evenings like this until baby girl makes her arrival :)

Cookie baking/decorating and Ornament exchange with my girls!

Daddy picking out Leah's 1st toothbrush {My husband is in Dental School so this was very important to him ha!}

My sweet mama-in-law has been making us lots of meals to help out. I thought this was hilarious! This was dinner for ONE night...she takes this whole eating for two thing literally! Ha!

Enjoying a Colts game with friends!
