38 weeks, 6 days

How far along? 38 weeks 6 days

Total weight gain/loss:  26 pounds.

Maternity clothes? Most definitely ;)

Sleep: Keith and I have had this nasty struggle over sleep for the last while.  I keep him up from my snoring, and from the potential to go into labour at any time, and then he gets restless and can't sleep, so I get restless and can't sleep.  It's not cool.  Last night was better.  I'm hoping this game is over soon!

Best moment this week: Pregnancy massage... seriously SO good!

Movement: I've had some very rough nights due to incredible movement from baby.  Like hours of so much movement, it was painful!  Baby seems to be wide awake as soon as I lay down, and then stays active til around 2 am.  

Food cravings: I'm loving Mini Eggs... but I wouldn't call it a craving :)  It's my favourite Easter candy, and I think it's OK to indulge a little once in a while.  I don't normally buy any candy or chocolates.

What I am looking forward to: Birthing this baby!  Well, I'm a tiny bit nervous about the whole labour thing, but I just want this baby to come already!  If it's anything like my other kids, it should be arriving any time now... as in today or tomorrow.  We shall see.

I have had to really get over some irrational fears this time around, for some reason.  On the nights when baby was so incredibly active, I thought for sure I would go into labour, and I was seriously scared!  But I've been praying through it, and I know that God will give me the strength to make it through.  I've done it before, and I can do it again!

Hopefully my next post will be introducing the newest little Friesen!
