39 Weeks

I officially have a torpedo for a belly. 

How far along: 39 Weeks
Food Comparison: Mini Watermelon - and my belly sure looks like one.
Weight gain: +25 lbs 
Maternity clothes: I am so ready to have clothes that fit again. I have worn the crap out of the few things that I've purchased. They have been washed so many times that there are starting to get fuzz balls all over the outside. Time for them to be thrown away! 
Stretch marks: Yeup. Inner thighs. Sides of booty. Under belly button. So sad.
Belly button in or out: Out. I had no clue it could stick out as far as it is. Reference picture above.
Sleep: Brutal. I wake up every 2-3 hours to use the restroom and have a Braxton Hick Contraction. Luckily, I'm able to fall back asleep as soon as the tightness goes away. 
Best moment last week: Spending some last minute quality time with CT. We went and saw the new planet of the apes movie on Saturday and hung out all day doing nothing on Sunday. It was really nice.  
Worst moment last week: Swelling and stretch marks. My body has officially changed so much .. but for the good.
Miss anything: A few things. Check back later this week for what I'm looking forward to.  
Movement: He is still moving but I can definitely tell he is running out of room. 
 Cravings: Drinks - but I need to drink more water. I got scolded from the OB.    
Queasy or sick: No. I just feel like a baby is falling out of me. 
Looking forward to: Tomorrow being my last day of work and having my son here no later then next Wednesday! 
Labor Progression: Nothing new. Still softening and about a 1cm. We also had another non-stress test. Last week because we thought he wasn't moving enough and this week because his heart rate was high. Thankfully everything came out okay and we just have an active baby! Plus a mama who needs to drink more water.  
Prayer Request: Same prayer as last week - 
This week I pray a fast labor and delivery and the ability to breastfeed! I have so many friends pregnant and their babies have started to arrive. I know our time is coming soon and as much as I'm looking forward to our little man being here - I'm not looking forward to the unknown (the delivery). 
Praying for peace.


  1. Eek, sounds like you will have a new baby in your arms very soon! Just found you through the Bloglovin' Blog Hop! Hope that everything goes well!

  2. Baby will be here so soon!! That is so exciting! Me and Hubs will start a family later this year {fingers crossed} so naturally I'm obsessed with pregnancy and babies! Praying for you to have a smooth, picture perfect delivery!
