How Far Along: 39 weeks

Total Weight Gained: 19lbs – yep! I gained 3 lbs in 1 week.

Sleep: It is what it is. I’m used to not sleeping. I get up to pee about 4 times a night.

Best Moment of the Week: Finding out that this is the last week I will be pregnant.

Food Cravings: Cake. Specifically chocolate cake with cherries and vanilla icing.

Food Aversions: Eggs.

Symptoms: Pain. Back, vag, stomach, hip, leg. It just hurts.

JP’s Symptoms: Berty has had some moments of rudeness this week. I think I deserve some major pampering and he thinks I need to suck it up.

Movement: Movement is painful these days, but I’m loving every minute of it!

Gender: Girl – Turner McCartney

What I miss: Margaritas! We had Mexican Saturday and I would have loved a margarita!

What I'm looking forward to: Meeting my baby girl!

Weekly Wisdom: Listen to other people’s advice but ultimately you know what is best for your situation. I always ask for other people’s opinions but I’m still going to make my own decision.

Also, eat lots and lots of cakes and girl scout cookies while you’re still pregnant!

Milestones: I made it! We scheduled an induction date!

So other than finding out that I ate my weight in cake last week, I also learned that I am now 2.5cm and 80% effaced. The doctor feels comfortable inducing me now and we scheduled for Thursday!

I’m so so so excited to know what day we will finally meet her!

Thanks for the comments on the bathroom! Berty really appreciates it!
