Baby M Update: Week 39

This is the last Baby M update post because Baby M is HERE!!!! 
Yep- she arrived Thursday morning.
I will be sure to give her a formal introduction here once I finish going through all the pictures.

 
How far along? 39 weeks and 1 day
Total weight gain: 25 lbs. 
Maternity clothes? Yep, I've pretty much been wearing all maternity clothes but I do have some regular tank tops that I can still fit in.
Stretch marks?
Unfortunately, in the last week, I have gotten quite a few. She is definitely pushing out more now causing them to pop up by the day. I'm not very pleased! lol
Sleep: Been sleeping well.
Best moment this week: Well... Her arrival of course! :)
Miss Anything? Still Travis! Being pain free. Being able to function like a normal person.
Movement: Yep! She's still moving quite a bit but I have noticed in the past couple of days that she isn't moving as much as she has been in past weeks. She must be getting quite smooshed now!
Food cravings: I didn't really crave anything this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing food wise but I had a few days of just not feeling well.
Gender: GIRL!!
Labor Signs: At my 39 wk appointment I was dilated to 3cm and still at 50% effaced. She stripped my membranes at that appointment to help things along. And well... Wednesday afternoon things started and Baby M arrived Thursday morning.
Belly Button (in or out): I guess we'll call it out. It is ever so slightly in but has been like this for weeks now so I don't see it getting any more flat.
Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: The usual back and round ligament pain, and shortness of breath.Unfortunately, my swollen gums are back as well.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I was happy this week. Yeah! :)
Looking forward to: Seeing what is in store with a new little one. And of course now, we are both looking forward to Travis coming home to officially meet his baby girl.

Like I mentioned above, I will give Baby M an official formal introduction on here soon. 
And perhaps share a little of her birth story as well.
