38 Weeks Pregnant | 3rd Trimester

How far along? 38 weeks &  3 day
Total weight gain/loss: 3 pounds lost
Maternity clothes? 
Stretch marks? Had them before pregnancy and getting a few new ones. I am ok with that.

Food cravings: nothing specific. I just get really hungry like I am starving.
Best moment this week: Getting the news that Jan 9th I will be getting induced. EEK. 
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my belly. Oh boy I can't wait! Sleeping all night long. Breathing right. Eating normal portions.
Movement: Yes. Slowing down a bit but still moving a lot.  
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope. Well, yup my dogs farts. She kills me!
Have you started to show yet: Yes.
Gender: Unknown
Labor Signs: Yes I have been having bad contractions. Some I have had to time but by the time I do they go away. Nothing consistent. I also had very bad back pains. I didn't realize it was back contractions. It was very painful so my aunt & husband have been applying counter pressure to the area when it strikes. 
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? Off. Just tried to put them on & that is a no go.  
Happy or Moody most of the time: Scared to death! I am anxious for my baby but terrified.  
Looking forward to: Seeing & smelling baby Hardy.
Doctor's appointment: I got checked I was 3 cm dilated, pretty thinned out almost 100, lost 3 pounds, urine clear, blood pressure 136/90, & baby's heart beat was 140's. I get an ultrasound tomorrow morning again because my fluid is a little low. She thinks maybe the baby had not peed yet. She thinks if my water breaks that it will only be a trickle. I got my membranes swept. We scheduled an induction date for January 9th at 7 am. I am beyond nervous. I was in shock when I was in the appt. I hope I go on my own before Wednesday but we shall see. Let's keep our hopes high.
Randoms: Baby has dropped. I was measuring at 41 weeks last week now I am 40 weeks. Baby will be here next week eek.
