38 Weeks

I'm now classed as 'full term'! Russell could arrive any day now!
The Doc says 'average' between 8 - 8 1/2 pounds (3.2kgs) and close to the due date...he doesn't expect me to be early...and he will induce at about 7 days over if needed....not long to go!!

My feet are starting to get 'fat' of an afternoon...especially if I've been on them too much that day. I've also been getting 'fat' fingers when I wake up of a morning...after a few stretchs and a warm shower they feel fine. I think there are lots more of those lovely fluids floating around my body. I think the baby has stopped growing so much and all the extra weight from this week has gone to my butt! Hopefully it won't take too long to loose it again after the birth...I don't think it helps that all I want to eat is Raspberry jam on toast...and anything else sweet! I have also been drinking waaaay to much milk...nothing else seems to quench the night time thirst I have...all the time. I've been having fairly good solid sleep with only the odd one or two night time wakings...mostly to move as my leg and left side goes numb from laying on it. I'm still feeling very healthy and well but do find myself getting tired at around 2pm most days...good excuse for a 'nanna nap' I think!

The final preparations are done...DH's Mum gave us his 'lambie' (sheep skin) from when he was a baby and his 'coming home' outfit today. I cute little dress with yellow ribbons...rather cold to wear now as DH was a summer bub so I will have to think of something to wear under it.

DH has been very cute the last few nights...talking to my belly asking Russell when we can meet him...or her I have to remind him! I know I have said it a few times but we are both getting very very excited!

Weight: 79.2kg (OMG!!!)

That's quite a substantial bump now! I drank loads of milkshakes while pregnant; maybe it's the body requesting the extra calcium it needs.

Wow what a belly!
DD thinks it looks like it's going to explode.

You look great! Not a stretch mark in sight! Come on Russell, we are dying to meet you!

Gorgeous belly! Not long to go now.
I hear you on the milk thing. I am even getting up to drink milk in the middle of the night. I have completely lost my appetite so smoothies and milk are it for me at the moment.

AJ you look lovely, it's so nice that your DH is excited enough to talk to your belly. I can't wait to see the little one either.
You look fantastic! Not long to go now. I can't wait to see the baby pics :)
