38 Weeks Pregnant

Happy Valentine's Day! I've never liked the idea of sharing my birthday with someone or with a holiday, so I hope baby boy doesn't decide to be born today.
I had an appointment yesterday with my doctor, and here are my 38 week stats:

Total Weight Gain: 39 lbs
Blood Pressure: 119/64

My doctor said everything is looking great. I am now dilated 2 cm, and my belly is measuring exactly at 38 cm. Baby boy is still head down.
I really haven't been feeling like myself lately. I don't know if it's some sort of end-of-pregnancy depression, a result of being in so much pain all the time, or my form of nesting. I don't really want to go anywhere. I don't feel motivated to clean or cook like I normally do. My appetite is all over the place. My back aches all day and by dinnertime I feel like my body is giving out on me. I've also been struggling with insomnia this week. I'll wake up around 1 or 2am and then just lay there wide awake for a couple hours. Maybe this is all my body's way of winding down and getting ready for labor....all I know is I can't wait to feel like myself again. Granted, it will be a "new normal", but at least I'll be holding my baby and I won't have to deal with being so uncomfortable.
