One week until my due date!

How Far Along: 39 weeks
What Baby Mac Is Up To: Baby Mac is the size of a small watermelon! Ouch.
The baby can now flex his/her limbs and is growing fingernails to scratch me with. He/she is still measuring at about seven pounds.
How I’m Feeling: Two centimeters dilated, eight more to go. Hoping, wishing, and praying that I go into labor next week. I either have short bursts of energy and feel the need to organize the refrigerator immediately…or I’m in bed by 9pm. You might say that I’m ready for this baby to get here.
What I’m Wearing: Nothing exciting – I can’t wait to wear my regular clothes again! I bought this dress for Baby Mac’s newborn shoot, so I’m looking forward to wearing something new soon.
What’s On My Mind Lately: Baby, 24/7.
What I’m Craving: There’s little room in my stomach for big meals and all too often, I order too much to eat in one sitting. (At least there’s leftovers.) Right now, I’m mostly craving all the things I haven’t been able to eat/drink while pregnant, especially since I’m so close to being done.
What I’m Looking Forward To: Meeting this baby already!
Coolest Moment This Week: Showing my parents and brother the nursery in person! It was so great having them in town this past weekend.
