39 Weeks

Size of baby: 19-22 inches, about 7lbs (Watermelon)
Symptoms: Lots of braxton hicks contractions, but I feel like there were more last week than this week. I still have back and rib pain. I’m feeling a bit swollen (although I can still wear my rings just fine) and I also feel like my bely has gotten a lot bigger in the last week.
Fetal Movement: The baby has shifted again. Now she kicks me right under my left ribs instead of the right side of my belly. She moves more slowly and more slowly. It’s crazy how I can now make out feet and knees and elbows when she pushes them against my belly. Her feet are so big, I can’t wait to give them kisses.
Sleep: What’s that?
Aversions: Oh Emm Gee… The chick behind me in class yesterday was eating curry and I wanted to barf. I love curry, but I only like the smell when I’m the one eating it, which is especially true when I’m 9 months pregnant.
Belly Button: Ladies and Gentlemen, we have an outie! Does that mean the bun in the oven is ready? I think so.
What I Look Forward To: Again… Having this baby! I’m getting so impatient. I’m hoping I won’t have a pregnancy update next week but I’m almost certain that I will. Maybe that’s okay because I still have quite a bit to do. Also… MY MOMMY GETS HERE SATURDAY! YEAAAY!
To-Do List: pack the hospital bag, finish the labor playlist, install the car seat, and finish the nursery

P.S. – This is my 100th blog post! Woohoo!

  1. Woo Woo! Almost there! I bet you’ll have her right after you weekly update next week, if not before. Those last weeks, are awful. I could never find a comfortable position to sleep in. Hope you’re having better luck with that than I did. You’ll need the rest for when she gets here! 🙂
