How far along: 39 weeks, 5 days
Weight Gain: Somewhere around 34lbs
Best Moment this week: planning on when we will meet Baby Baylor (in case he doesn't come before then)!
Food Cravings: I have been craving some fattening foods like fries and burgers this week. And of course sweets.
Movement: still lots. I think I will miss this most about being pregnant. Feeling this life inside of me moving around all the time is such a miraculous feeling.
What I am looking forward to: meeting my sweet baby boy!
Workouts: Still lots of walking,  I have maintained my 3-4 times per week.

We went to the doctor on Tues and had an ultrasound to see how big Baylor is. The doctor was concerned how high up he is and that he hasn't dropped or made any progress yet. Apparently, according the the ultrasound (which we realize is not always correct!) Baylor is in the 83rd percentile. He is a big boy! My doctor has arranged for us to come in on our due date, this Sunday to labor and delivery and they will start to induce labor.He feels waiting another week (which is the latest he will let me go) may not make a difference due to his size and my lack of progress thus far.  I will be given medicine Sunday night to hopefully progress things and they will fully start to induce Monday morning. We are soo excited to finally be able to meet our sweet baby and ask for everyone to please keep us in your prayers for a safe and healthy delivery!
