38 weeks

I'm 38 weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 38 Weeks
Size of baby: Hollis is around 6.8 lbs
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 18 lbs
Maternity Clothes: I wear maternity jeans and pants but everything else is regular. I'm down to just a few things I can still fit into. ha!
Gender: It's a girl!!! Hollis Barrett Stamps
Movement: She is VERY active - especially in the afternoon and at night
Sleep: I can't sleep. I can't get comfortable and I just have insomnia.
What I miss: Being able to do anything - I can barely get around at this point.
Cravings: I've lost my appetite lately - I think maybe my stomach has run out of room?
Symptoms: I'm 9 months pregnant - I'm huge, I waddle and I can barely move. I can't bend over or get comfortable in any position. BUT I'm SO thankful for this pregnancy and I'm trying to enjoy the very end.
Best Moment this week: Just feeling Hollis move so much. She feels like she is doing complete flips in my stomach. I'm SO anxious to see her!

I had this on my 38 week post with Harper and today I'm thinking the same thing:

I can't wait to see my little girl.................I just wonder if she'll have dark hair and eyes like her momma (yes I have ALWAYS loved food and the HOGS!)
(and I think in this picture - Harper looks a lot like me!)
Or big blue eyes and blond hair like her daddy? Or (what I'm hoping for) dark hair and blue eyes? It's so awesome to think that she is part me and part Scott. Such a miracle!

 When I was doing Harper's nursery - I had found this blog http://www.smallwordsblog.com/ and just fell in love with her paintings so I had her make Harper one to match her room.  And I have LOVED it! I've also since gotten to know Kim and even met her in real life. She is super woman - 4 kids and an amazing artist. I don't know how she does it all.
 So of course I asked her to do a painting for Hollis.  She just finished today and posted a picture on facebook for me! (Should be on her blog later today too!)  I have no artistic ideas so I just sent her the fabric and said "try to make it girly".  ha! And I LOVED what she did! I can't wait to get it and put it up!!!! I love the fabric flowers she added! It goes perfect with the shabby feel of her room!
