My Pregnancy: 40 Weeks x 2! :)

I know, it sounds funny to say, "40 weeks x 2", but since I'd started my weekly blog posts from a slightly earlier date they'd given me, I figured I'd do 40 weeks again, since today marks my official/ original due date. I should have just gone off this one the whole time. I got too eager, what can I say!? :) 

How far along: 40 weeks 


Total weight gain: 26 lbs.

Maternity clothes: I've been wearing loose pre-pregnancy tops under sweaters lately. Buying maternity tops or larger regular sizes worked for a while, but I'm glad I have some of my looser pre-prego tops that work. Stretched out most likely, but worked nonetheless! 
Stretch marks: Didn't get any! Thanks Mom, for passing on those particular genetics. :) 
Sleep: Besides getting up at least twice to use the bathroom, I'm sleeping pretty well.

Pregnancy symptoms: I had a good week! I didn't have hardly any pain, and I was able to go on walks around my neighborhood; so refreshing!

Best moment of this week: Since I've been just waiting for this baby boy to arrive, I've kept myself busy so I wouldn't get too ancy. I re-organized the closets, cleaned the bathrooms, got the guest bedroom nearly ready for my in-laws and did some baking. It was nice to get the house picked up and a few more things accomplished. 
Movement: He slowed down a bit during the days this past week, but always picks up his movement at night when I'm laying down and relaxing. It's nice to be able to be quiet and just enjoy feeling him move and focus on experiencing him in my belly a little longer.  
Belly button in or out:  Out some, but not much. 
Wedding rings on or off: On.

Notes/Update: 

- Today is my official due date!!! I had an appt. with my midwife this afternoon, and I'm 3cm dilated. I went ahead and let her sweep my membranes. It wasn't comfortable (at all), but it might get labor started, so I figured "why not!?". Since my appt. I've been pretty crampy, but not having contractions, so we'll see what happens! Just so excited to meet my boy and stare at his sweet face!
