9 Months (39 1/2 Weeks)

Honestly, I didn't think I'd still be pregnant at this point.
However, the pictures prove that, in fact, I am still with child.

So, here are my 39 week stats.

Weight Change: Since my weight fluxuates so much within a day, I'm going with the lowest number I've seen recently. You'd do the same, right?
That puts me at about 31lbs., which makes me make this face.

Energy Level: Energy is still pretty good. I'm trying to take it easy which I'm sure helps. There are still times where I feel really, really good. Usually in the morning...unless my back feels all jacked up.

How Do I Feel? (My most frequently asked question).
My back muscles are getting kind of tired and sore. Sleep is basically non-existent between rolling over 8,000 times a night and the kids waking up so much from being sick. Rolling is the wrong word. I should more accurately say, heaving myself up by pushing my head down into my pillow and rotating over to my other side. Also, I'm starting to swell a little. That's uncomfortable.

I'm irritable, although I feel like it was worse a couple months ago.

Oh and I've hit that point where I kind of think this isn't going to happen. I know, I know, that's completely irrational. But when you expect to go into labor every day, go to sleep thinking about what you need to do if you are woken up by contractions and then another day goes by and another night goes by, you kind of start to doubt. If you've been pregnant and made it to 40 weeks or past that, I'm sure you know what I mean.
Cravings: I guess I'm still gonna go with sweets and carbs. Although I'm not sure I can consider that a craving so much as poor food choices I feel like I can get away with right now.

Gender: B.o.y.
Last pictures I have with the other boys...with Grey (about 38 weeks)

Also 38 weeks with Sam.

I feel your pain...I'm already to the point of where I'm thinking "Surely this can't go on for another 6 weeks"... and I totally remember getting to 39.5 weeks last time and being indignant about how it could have actualy lasted that long.

You look adorable - I'm sure it will be any day now!!

Sweet friend, you look amazing!!! I know it doesn't make you feel any better, but I'm there with you. I'm so disgusted and frustrated with Baby T. I don't understand why she wont come out and play at 41.5 weeks! May the Lord bring our babies ASAP!
