39 Weeks

How far along?  39 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? Up 25 lbs I'd be super stoked if the weight gain just plateaued at this point
Stretch marks? Yes and I think they're having orgies after I go to bed because more just keep popping up.  Still only on the left side which is beyond bizarre to me.  
Sleep? My sleep has reached an unfortunate state of affairs.  I have to pee like twice a night and the effort it takes me to roll my ass out of bed is insane.  
Best moment last week? Getting to wear my favorite maternity dress to a Communion.  It's pretty fancy and there  hasn't been much fanciness going on lately.  
Movement? I think Mrs. Petrillo thinks the way out is through my belly button because it looks like it's trying to bust out.  
Food cravings? chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream
Food aversions?  chicken and onions
Gender? Team Green
Labor signs? I've had a definite increase in the intensity and frequency of my contractions, but they're still not following the 5-1-1 rule.  
Belly button in/out? Out and it looks like it's wearing a hood.  
What I miss: High heels.  I wore them to the Communion party this weekend and my calves screamed for 2 days.  
What I am looking forward to: Finding out if Mrs. Petrillo is a boy or a girl.  
Milestones: I have never been this pregnant before.  I had Isabella at 38 weeks 6 days and I am currently 39 weeks 2 days.  

Here's me and my girl in our party dresses
