39 weeks....and a surprise update

•How far along?: 39 weeks

•How big is baby?: According to What to Expect around 7 to 8 pounds and between 19 and 21 inches. Actual, real baby size. Craziness.

•Maternity clothes?: Yep. Pretty much everything.

•Stretch marks?: Meh, I'm not worried about it.

•Sleep?: I have good nights and bad nights. I have gotten up early the last 2 days though, and I've got to admit, I kind of enjoy having a longer day.

•Food cravings?: Meh, honestly nothing in particular... well, sweets I guess.

•Labor signs?: Random contractions, nothing serious yet though.

•Belly button in or out?: In. It's not coming out!

•What I miss: Alcohol.

•What I'm looking forward to: Meeting my daughter.

So today I had my 39 week appointment, at 8:45 this morning might I add. The doctor actually found her heartbeat within the first 5 seconds (after 6 weeks of her taking 10+ minutes to find it) so that made my day a little brighter.

She also told me that if I haven't had her by her due date (8 DAYS...omg) that she will induce me on November 4th. So I could have her as early as today (I can wish right?), or no later than 15 days from today. Two weeks from tomorrow.

It hasn't hit me yet. It still doesn't feel real. I don't think it will until I'm in the hospital bed, hooked up to monitors feeling the contractions. Soon enough I guess.

Anyhow, after my appointment this morning Lindsey and I went to Babies R Us, I was going to pick up the AngelCare Baby Monitor. While we were there, I met a lady who said she had one, gently used that she would sell me for half the price. I was like, um hell yes! Then of course after I give her my address and phone number so she can bring it to me, I think, oh shit, what if she is some sort of crazy baby snatcher, and when she comes to my house she ties me up and cuts me open and steals my baby?! I never think about the dangers until after the fact. So keep your fingers crossed that I don't get killed today, and everything goes well.

Until next time....
Edited to add:
So she came, and went. I got my AngelCare baby monitor for half the price, she didn't kill me, and it is in great condition and still works! Woo! I didn't die, or get ripped off!
