due date: jan 10
how many weeks down/days left/days of work left: 38 weeks/13 days/7 days
baby is the size of: a leek
sleep: rough. it is really difficult and even painful to roll from side to side at this point. i need to fully wake up in order to do so, then i end up need a drink or having to pee or just laying there awake for a bit.
best moment this week: christmas day. matt and i slept in till 9 and just lounged all day long...i didn't even get out of my pj's. and matt got me the camera i've been wanting for like a year - the olympus pen!
what are you looking forward to: last visits with my family before baby arrives! dad is coming down on saturday and i think we're meeting my mom and jeff at a restaurant in between us to watch football on sunday.
what do you miss: not waddling. and being able to open things up by myself - my hands are now very swollen all the time, and i feel like i have arthritis. i have a new level of respect and sympathy for people who live with actual arthritis day in and day out. it is the pits.
symptoms: big belly. back, hip, and pelvic pain. lots of peeing. puffy feet and hands/hand pain. congested.
weight gain: 29 pounds.
movement: still moving a lot.
gender: baby boy!!
belly button: still not what i would call an outtie, but it's more out than in.
rings: all off. i'm not even comfortable wearing the opal ring anymore.
