Bump Day -- 39 Weeks!


10 weeks...............20 weeks..............30 weeks.........

39 weeks......I thought I'd do the comparison today. Ya know, just in case I don't make it to 40! (Haha. Yeah right!)


How far along? 39 weeks. Put a fork in me. I'm done.

Weight gain/loss: Still hanging tough at +32 pounds. That's like 12 more than I told myself I wanted to gain and I fear the post partum diet I'm going to have to go on. Goodbye ice cream and gummy worms! It probably doesn't help that I started my pregnancy with a *few* more pounds than I would have liked.

Maternity Clothes? Haha. That's funny. As if I could fit into anything else.

Sleep: I could literally set a watch to my potty breaks. Two hours on the hour...like clockwork. When I am asleep though, I'm like the dead.

Stretch marks: Still nothing new, but I swear one is going to pop up on my foot with all this redonkulous swelling. Even my toes are fat.

Best moment this week: Feeling sorry for my big ole pregnant self and then feeling the baby move. It made me realize these are the last few days just me and him and I should probably embrace it a little before I have to start sharing him with the rest of the outside world.

Movement: Yep...and he's definitely feeling lower these days. Maybe this means I'm actually making some progress!

Food cravings: Ice cream! I may or may not have consumed an entire half gallon of ice cream in a matter of days then went to the store and bought another one so my husband wouldn't realize it was all gone already.

Gender: Team Blue!

Labor Signs: Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. My son will be attending college from my uterus.

Belly Button in or out? In. I told you all I'd make it without an outtie!

What I Miss: Not having to mentally prepare myself before walking up a flight of stairs or getting up off the couch.

What I'm looking forward to: Having an outside baby. The suspense is killing me!

Weekly Wisdom: As much as you just want to be done at this point....try and enjoy these last few child free days.

Milestones: I'm officially on people's "watch" list. When I show up at work, people are surprised. When I call someone unexpectedly, they think I'm calling with news. I also think a mild case of nesting has set in. I'm not busting out the toothbrush and bleach just yet, but I have this weird new obsession with making sure the house is in some sort of order when I leave everyday...just in case I don't come back for awhile. Oh! And the hospital bag is officially packed! It's go time!

I totally remember those comments at work. "You're STILL here?" Uh, yep. NOW SHUT THE HELL UP! No, I didn't really say that. But I sure wanted to.

It tough waiting. I know you're just so excited to have him here. I'm excited to "meet" him :)

Kristen said...

ha ha! I remember those days of showing up at work and everyone being surprised to see me there, it was actually sorta annoying always hearing the "still here?" um hello, obviously! And at least you have an excuse for giving yourself the pep talk to get off the couch, me on the other hand, no excuse!

Kristen said...

Keeping my fingers crossed for you, girl. The suspense is killing me too!

Jordan said...

You crack me up! At least you still have your sense of humor even at 39 weeks!

Allison @ I heart Change said...

I don't know if you plan to breastfeed but if you do.. the pounds just melt off when you're doing that. Partially because it burns 500 calories and the other part because you can't get up and go to the fridge and end up eating a lot of cereal dinners. But it works!

You're going to have a baby in your arms really really soon! Yay!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

I love seeing the photos side by side!! Congrats, you're in the home stretch!

Dave and Jenn said...

What a transformation!!

And that thing about the ice cream...I've totally done that. I've also ordered pizza, ate the whole thing, and thrown in out in the garbage in the garage trash so Matt will never know. That way, it's like it didn't even happen...

Except for the fat growing on my thighs...
