38 Week Pregnancy Update

Baby size: About 6.8 pounds and over 19 inches long. Just not enough room in this tummy anymore!
How far along: 38 weeks
Weight gain: 20 pounds
Sleep: Let's be honest. Who sleeps wonderfully the last few weeks of pregnancy? I think I was up like 6 times last night.
Food cravings:  I've really wanted protein-packed stuff this week for some reason... maybe because I need it?
Upper back pain: I had this with Landon, but not as bad. It's my mid-back and it's only in one spot. I guess it's just a nerve or muscle that Colton has decided he should lie on. But basically, I can't sit down comfortably... sometimes even lie down comfortably.
Ligament pain: I should take a video of Randy imitating how I walk when I get up out of bed or off the couch. He thinks it's quite amusing. I, on the other hand, think that he should be pregnant for like... a day.
Exercise:  Still able to work out 4 days a week, and I am so thankful for God continuing to give me energy... and a hubby who babysits even when he's in flight school!
Movement: I woke up this morning feeling like I'd been kicked in the stomach all night long. Then I realized... I probably had.
What I’m looking forward to: Not being pregnant! (even though I know I'll miss all these kicks and punches)
What I miss: My clothes fitting.
It's hard to believe baby C will be here so soon. I'm not in a rush due to his daddy's busy schedule right now (and the fact that I want him to bake as long as he needs to!), but I'm hoping he doesn't make his appearance too late for several different reasons. I've had to constantly give that worry over to the Lord and trust in His sovereign timing. My midwife reminded me last week that pregnancy is not a permanent condition. I was like oh... yeah. Good point. 
This week's picture was taken at about 37.5 weeks, but I figured that was close enough to 38 ;)
