Almost there!

How far along: 39 weeks, 4 days. Would love to have this bundle by Mother's Day! Yes, that's snow in the pic -- we had a dusting of snow in May, which is very rare around here. Today it's 70 degrees.
Size of baby: 20 inches and just over 7 pounds (ish)
Gender: A girl! Carson Ruby Huddleston
Maternity clothes: Mostly maternity, but I've been able to sprinkle in quite a bit of non-maternity wear throughout. I usually have to add a maternity tank for length at this point.
Weight gain: 24 pounds - my doc gave me a goal of 20-30lb and I'll split it right down the middle.
Movement: She's still kicking, but for sure doesn't have much room to move around in there. Her little foot sticks out much of the day. :)
Sleep: Still sleeping well -- bathroom breaks 2-3 times a night but I usually fall asleep pretty quick. I woke up around 2:30am with some contractions this morning and thought it might be the start of something good, but I fell asleep, so I guess it wasn't the real deal!
Best moment this week:I love that Sean and I had this past weekend to ourselves. I honestly didn't think we would have the weekend free, as I thought I would for sure have this little girl by then. We watched a few movies, did lots of walking (including 2.5 hours at Sams Club) and really just enjoyed each others' company.

My technical due date is this Thursday - did you know only 5% of babies are actually born on their due dates? I really had a feeling I would have her early, and maybe I still will. At this point, I just want to celebrate Mother's Day with Carson in my arms. My next appointment is on Thursday so we will wait and see what the doctor says!
