My due date is SIX DAYS away… how is that possible?! We can no longer count in weeks! The end of pregnancy has amazingly been the best part. I expected to feel uncomfortable and impatient and just generally awful, but it hasn’t been the case for the most part. That being said, I am definitely ready to meet our girl! These past few days have been full of little teasing labor symptoms that have turned into nothing. (I was feeling especially yucky during this photo session, so apologies for the less-than-cute pics.) Fingers crossed that my next update involves baby photos instead of another chalkboard/bump :)
How far along? 39 Weeks
Baby is the size of: A watermelon
Total weight gain: 27 pounds
Gender: It’s a girl!
Name: I’m excited to share her name on the blog once she arrives :)
Maternity Clothes: some of my maternity tops are starting to get short… I have to check and make sure the bottom of my belly isn’t popping out as I go about my day (it usually is).
Stretch marks? I’ve got some little white ones around my belly button, but they’re not bad and hard to see in most light.
Sleep: Most nights I’m up at least an hour or so… it’s only the beginning, I know.
Movement: She’s still very active. Check out the video at the bottom for an example!
Best moment this week: We had a lovely BBQ over the weekend with some families from our child birth class. It was really nice to visit with everyone and enjoy the sun :)
Miss Anything: I can’t wait to sleep in whatever position I’d like to. And to be able to get out of bed without help, haha.
Belly button in or out? The top is popping out, but the bottom is flat.
Food cravings: Summer fruit
Anything making you queasy or sick: Definitely had a few queasy days this week— yesterday was especially bad
Labor Signs: Definitely starting to get signs of labor, but so far nothing has stuck. Hopefully it means that baby girl will be making an appearance sooner rather than later, though!
Symptoms: Lots of pressure and achiness. And the lovely swelling.
Wedding ring on or off? Off :( I’m officially wearing my ring on a chain around my neck. I have a fake wedding ring that I got at Target, which is a size bigger… I have to wear something on my ring finger or I freak out that I’ve lost my ring.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I’ve been really relaxed and feeling happy! No matter what, I know we’ll be meeting our little lady soon… so exciting!!
Looking forward to: The big day, whenever that is!
