38 weeks 3 days Pregnant w/baby #3

This week, Baby is the size of a: probably 6.5 to 7lbs
How far along? 38 weeks 3 days
Due date: 5/1/15
Total weight gain/loss: probably still in the +40 something range. I think I'm high 170s now. 
Maternity clothes? Yea. All that is comfortable is maxi skirts, and even those are iffy. 
Sleep: no complaints. I'm awake at 4:27am and have been for almost a half hour. 
Best moment this past week: messing with my dad probably 

Food cravings: nothing that I can think of 
Movement: last night I had a kick so big and strong, I'm surprised my water didn't break! 
Symptoms: surprisingly, aside from feeling physically limited in that I can't bend over, I feel incredible for being this pregnant. I have no really notable symptoms. 
Labor Signs: random BH, but nothing notable. 
Stretch Marks yep, I'm pretty sure my belly wasn't expecting to get this big again... However, I'm much smaller than I was full term with both boys. 
Swelling? Not really. I took my rings off when the boys got sick a few weeks back and haven't put them back on. 
Belly Button in or out? in
What I miss: being able to move fast. 
Feeling toward Pregnancy: Still bewildered. Anxious about labor and delivery and recovery. 
What I am looking forward to: my mom is coming over today and I can't decide if I want to clean or nap. And my next appointment is Tuesday, tomorrow morning. 
Milestones: I need to do the math to see how long I was pregnant with Luke. I think I was just under 39 weeks when he was born. 
News: I've got nothing. My last mw appt, she was head down and by Thursday night, she had flipped to head up. Much to Goldie & Dr. Gage's surprise. I had an ultrasound and she spent a few days transverse, and is now officially back to head down.
