40 Weeks

How far along?  40 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss? Up 25 lbs I haven't gained at all this week
Stretch marks? Stupid reproducing stretch marks.  I've counted at least 5 on the left side.  I've heard more can just crop up after delivery, but I refuse to believe this is true.    
Sleep? This was not a bad sleep week and I actually snuck in a few naps as well.   
Best moment last week? Celebrating Mother's Day at home.  As nice as a Mother's Day baby would have been it was much nicer relaxing at home eating banana pancakes than pushing out a baby in the hospital.  Although it would have been nice to have a glass of champagne.  
Movement? Lots of low pressure and thuds.  
Food cravings? Just all food.  I want to eat everything
Food aversions?  chicken and onions
Gender? Team Green
Labor signs? Lots of contractions.  The closest I've come is 6-8 minutes apart lasting 30-60 seconds for about an hour, but then they go away.  They always go away.  I don't even get my hopes up anymore.  
Belly button in/out? Out and it looks like it's wearing a hood.  
What I miss: I have been dying for a margarita.  Straight up.  On the rocks.  Lots of salt.
What I am looking forward to: Having my body back.  
Milestones: This baby is completely overcooked.

I must admit, I feel like I'm stalking you hoping for a baby announcement! Here's to making it to 40 weeks and not having to return to work for those last three days. Sending you lots of labor dust.

You are so close to holding that baby and enjoying an ice cold margarita (and I'm not opposed to doing both at the same time)! The suspense is killing me! Can't wait to find out the gender. XOXO
