38 weeks - woohoo! Overall I really have not felt that fantastic the last week. However, this morning I woke up with a (small) burst of energy. It's amazing what a solid night of sleep will do for you. Yesterday I had my doctor's appointment and she said at the end of my appointment, "see you next week!" I haven't had any contractions yet, but baby's head is sitting very low. Let's see what the next week brings! Onto the updates.
Weight: No change from last week. Up 27.5 pounds total.

I felt much better over the weekend. Mostly because I can sleep in a bit and just relax as I need to. My husband and I cleaned out our lower level. We're literally making projects for ourselves at this point. Baby boy, the house is ready for you.

Saturday evening we went for a leisurely 2 mile walk and I felt great the whole time. At my doctor's appointment yesterday when the doctor confirmed that baby boy's head is really low, she asked me if I felt any pressure. Yes! Sometimes walking becomes very uncomfortable.
For brunch on Sunday we had a little get together with my husband's coworkers at a fantastic Mexican restaurant. I got a curry tofu scramble with a side of vegan sausage and homefries. Delicious! Everyone was so generous and we received a few more gifts for baby boy - some books, bottles, bathtub, diapers, wipes, and giftcards. Truly such kind gifts that we are so grateful for. Then, Sunday dinner, my parents visited. It was great to see them. They figured the next time they'll come to visit us is when baby boy makes an appearance!
Goals: Be patient for baby boy's arrival. I'm so excited to meet our little guy. I know it could be any day now, but at the same time it could be another three weeks (if I go 10 days overdue). I just want to enjoy my big belly and every movement from baby boy.
