Fantastical Friday: 39 Weeks

Yup, still pregnant.
How far along are you? 39 weeks
How are you feeling? Over the last week or so, I've felt more relaxed and okay with the fact that Mason hasn't arrived yet. I'm still feeling tired, heavy, pressure, and achy, but I'm not nearly as miserable as a week ago.
How big is baby? My app guesstimates a little over 7 lbs and about 20 inches long. If the growth scan was accurate, he probably is around 7lb.
How are you sleeping? Wellish. It depends on the night - typically I either sleep 6 to 7 straight hours or get up every hour on the hour to pee and "toss and turn".
Food cravings/aversions? I was able to eat spaghetti this week! And it didn't make me feel like throwing up! YAY! I have been craving fresh pineapple like crazy. I've had it 4x in the last week.
Any milestones/other thoughts? Now I am officially full term. Mason is still furiously moving like he isn't running out of room - which can be painful at times. Unfortunately, I missed my 38 week appt on Tuesday due to really bad icy roads here in Tennessee. I'm not under the impression that anything is wrong, so I figure I should be alright. At each appointment, everything is perfectly fine. I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for labor, but I cannot get in the mindset and don't think I will until I actually go in. I'm hoping for no epidural and to be very active and labor in the Whirlpool maybe! I'm hoping for 8 hours or less and very few pushes. I was lucky with my other two - 15 minutes and 5 minutes of pushing. I think this gives me motivation and confidence in that regard! I'm excited that it's a week away now - my due date. I can't believe how fast it has all gone and cannot wait to meet lil Mason!
