39 weeks {nora}

my belly in neon, Picasa is so cool
What do you think about the bellies this week?  I don't think I look particularly bigger w/ Nora, but she looks like she's sitting a little lower maybe?
Her size: According to Babycenter, Nora should be 20" and just over 7#. For memory's sake, Emmy was born at 39 weeks +1 day (which is TODAY for Nora) at 7#2oz and 19.5"
How far along: 39 weeks as of Friday.
Total weight gain: +42lbs.  Exact same as with Emmy.  However, DR and ultrasound think that Nora is smaller than Emmy was at this point- so more weight for me to lose. Eeek.
Sleep:  As expected.  I am really looking forward to meeting this creature inside of me.  I'd much rather wake up to be feeding her than waking to go to the bathroom 3x a night :)
Maternity Clothes: Finding clothes this past week for work was a bit of a challenge, stuck mainly to dresses and really stretchy skirts!
Food cravings: Junk, ice cream, fried foods...basically anything that's not healthy for me.  I have a bad attitude towards food and my weight right now.  I know an end is in sight and I know that I lost TONS of weight while nursing Emmy.  I just hope it comes off as easily this time (with Emmy I didn't work out at all for a year postpartum, so if I do have issues getting the weight off this time then hopefully occasional workouts will help)
Food aversions: It tastes wonderful, but I have to force myself to stay away from lemonade of any sorts.  Lemonade=reflux.
Symptoms: Carpal tunnel in my right wrist and the arch in my right foot is about to collapse...I am guessing they are both related to swelling?
Stretchmarks: None that I can see. 
Doctor’s Appointment: I had an appt this past Tuesday, still 3cm and 80% effaced.
Movement:  Less jabs, more rolling...still plenty of feet poking out.  I love it.
Belly Button: Poking out a little on my left side only.
Best moment of the week:  It actually happened JUST husband came in and told me that the subfloor under our bathroom and part of our bedroom is destroyed from water.  Awesome.
What I’m looking forward to: Watching #1 with #2....hope it's a peaceful thing
What I miss: Not breathing like a fatty.....still.
Preparations:  We got the rest of the gear down today...but the house is a wreck!
Glad I have march madness to keep me occupied.  I'm highly impatient and ready for this little girl to get here.
