Well the end is truly in sight!!! As happy as I am about that, there are times I feel a little mixed emotion in there too. This is the last 2 weeks of my life that I will ever feel a baby kicking and moving inside my tummy, it’s also the last 2 weeks of my life that we will have as a family of 3 and that Maddox is the only child. As uncomfortable as I am getting, I am still trying to savor every moment of this life as I know it!!
How Far Along: 37 Weeks and 5 days
Size of baby: Ryder is about 6.8 lbs
Total Weight Gain/Loss: A lot (what can I say….I enjoy food during this time!! ha!)
Maternity Clothes: I wear maternity jeans and pants, some maternity tops and some regular tops.
Gender: It's a Boy!!! Ryder Thomas Carrigan
Movement: Lots of movement…I can see my belly jump when I’m sitting still and I’m sure I’m feeling knees and elbows poking now!! His little butt usually pops up on the right side and it makes my belly lopsided!! The movement and feeling him inside me is my favorite part of being pregnant!
Sleep: Sleep is good as long as I don’t get hot!!
What I miss: Energy, being small, and being able to move around like I’m 32 instead of like an 80 year old!!

Best Moment this week: finding his coming home outfit and my Dr appt today
