39 WEEKS





How far along? 39 weeks. Everything is big. Big hair. Big belly. Big swollen feet and hands. Sounds so charming, doesn't it?
Maternity clothes? Nothing fits. It's quite sad.
Sleep? I am usually waking up every 2-3 hours these nights. Must be prepping me for baby.
Best moment(s) this week? My parents are here, Jeff is here, my doctor is back. All systems are a GO! The baby dropped on Friday of last week and ooooh boy have I noticed!
Food cravings: Nothing really, I just shove the food in my mouth.
Gender: A big boy! My doctor thinks he weighs about 8 1/2 pounds already. Oh oh ouch!
Belly button in or out? A crater of stretchedness.
Movement? Slower. When he moves my whole stomach moves and people notice the movement.
What I miss? Skinny jeans and feeling in shape.
What I'm looking forward to: Let's get this party started! I'm ready to meet our newest little guy. I'm actually kind of interested to see how working with a midwife pans out versus working with a doctor. I really like my midwife, so I'm anxious to see how we are together.


Anything else?
  • Doctor's appointment yesterday. I am measuring right along at 39 weeks. I am now 3 cm dilated and 90% effaced. After that exam, she told me I can basically have a baby at any second.
  • I think that might have freaked Jeff out just a tiny bit. It became a reality for him, more yesterday than any day before.
  • My blood pressure is back to its awesome self.
  • Everyone comments on the size of my belly these days. Can I just say, you don't become any friendlier with a pregnant lady if you're the one saying, "Holy smokes your belly is SO BIIIIIIIG!" Making sure to emphasize the so and the big.
    • So cute is acceptable
    • So round is just fine
    • I haven't cooked a meal in a week and I've been taking naps every day when I come home from work. THANK YOU MOM I LOVE YOU!

Brown was over visiting my sister last night. We both thought any moment. I am so happy you shared your progress with us.
(Just so you know some of us are "rounder" then others and some of us still probably weigh in more then your pregnant weight so feel happy about that).
