Week 39---Where's the baby?!

How far along?  39 Weeks
Total weight gain? Too many to count
Maternity clothes? Yeah. 
Stretch Marks? Unfortunately. 
Best moment this week? Getting my adorable Kate Spade diaper bag in the mail from my two awesome friends!! (See pics below.) Also finishing all the mundane tasks I had to do before baby comes.
Miss anything? Having my own body. And standing for more than a few minutes without getting tires. I'm so lame. 
Movement? Yep! 
Food Cravings: Sweets
Anything making you sick or queasy? As long as I eat constantly I'm ok. I also now weigh a thousand pounds... So there's that.
Worst symptom: Heartburn
Labor signs: Definetely feeling Braxton hicks contractions. And I think she may have dropped because I have to pee WAY more often. 
Belly button in or out? Out.
Wedding rings on or off? Off. 
Happy or Moody most of the time? Moody. 
Looking forward to: Labor! Like I'm seriously looking forward to the baby coming but I'm also looking forward to the experience. I've done so much research and reading I just want to see what it's like now. And I'm excited for Chris to be my birth coach and help me through it. And I'm excited for my SIL to take some incredible photos and compile the birth story. So much excitement!

This past week has been so insane. I've been working so hard to finish all my school work and work work so that I can relax and be ready for when baby girl decides to make her appearance. 

As of Tuesday when I did my class presentation, I'm done! I have the bassinet set up, my go bag and diaper bags are packed, all of baby girl's clothes are organized and she has a carseat and a stroller and a swing and bouncer. The house is clean, I made freezer meals, and now my mom is here to help with housekeeping and whatnot. 

My due date is tomorrow and by golly I am ready. I feel good. I'm just insanely tired all the time. So I'm going to go read another parenting book, eat a cupcake, and relax. Cause I'm about to be a Mommy and I'm so dang excited about it!!!

Now it's just time to play the waiting game. And in case you were wondering, baby girl is the size of a watermelon!


  1. Glad we got to spoil you a little bit!

  2. I was in your English 251 class spring term. Glad to see you're doing well, and hope you have a safe and happy delivery! :-)
