Gluten Free Pregnancy | Week 39

 How far along? 39 Weeks / 40 when this posts :S
Total weight gain: None
Maternity clothes? Yep!
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep: So bad again! Except one day I was sick, I am very good at sleeping when I am sick!
Best moment this week: Since Bricklet chose not to arrive, my husband and I took advantage of another weekend of it being the two of us - we went for a nice dinner, went to a Broadway show (Chicago), and my hubby finally took me for a horse carriage ride in Central Park! 
Miss anything? Breathing through both nostrils, being able to speak! And still my flat stomach.
Movement: Yes, he continues to be beat me up from the inside.  
Food cravings: Nope.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Well, I was sick this week. We actually thought that maybe I was in early labor on Tuesday, but it turns out I was just really ill and having related aches and pains. Being sick and 39 weeks pregnant is not fun by the way!
Gender: Boy.
Labor signs: Again, maybe some Braxton Hicks, but I'm still not sure that I'm feeling them. Other than that Bricklet is apparently dropped a bit more, but he seems to be comfortable and hasn't made his evacuation attempt yet.
Symptoms: Sore back, swelling/puffiness, general discomfort caused by being a hippopotamus.
Belly button in or out? Mostly in, but a bit of it is out which is really freaky (I am omphalophobic)  .
Wedding rings on or off? Mostly off, I still do not want to risk them getting stuck!
Happy or moody most of the time: Moody! I was sick, am massive, and just want Bricklet out. 
What are you looking forward to? Not being pregnant anymore! The end is in sight one way or another, the day this posts is my actual due date, and my OB will be scheduling induction if I don't have him. I'm terrified of pitocin, so really hoping it does not come to that, but whatever gets him out at this point.
