39 Weeks | Baby Funk 2

  • How far along?: 39 Weeks
  • Baby is the size of a: Swiss Chard bunch (19-21 in, 7-8lbs) (according to WTE Pregnancy)
  • Total weight gain/loss:  +28
  • Stretch Marks?  I'm a little bummed that I got stretch marks, but they are still very tiny so I know they won't be noticeable.  This baby is worth every single one, so I'm not complaining.  Still using Mustela and BioOil.
  • The Bump: Large and in charge!
  • Symptoms:  Does not be able to put on your own shoes count as a symptom?  I've hit that point in the pregnancy.  I definitely feel the baby dropping this week and I feel like everything make me a little nauseous.  I started swelling a little in my hands and feet this week too.
  • Food Cravings: Give me everything!
  • Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Nope.
  • Sleep: I'm not sleeping much at all anymore.
  • What I miss:  Sleep.
  • Weddings Rings On or Off: Currently off :(  Hoping the swelling doesn't last long.
  • Any Names Picked Out Yet: Still nothing!  I don't know what we are going to do!
  • Gender: We've still managed to keep it a surprise from my family and friends.  Of course, if you've been keeping up with my posts, you know that Michael already let it out to his family.
  • Movement: I'm not sure what's going on in there, but the movement has been a little uncomfortable lately....and lots of it.
  • Maternity Clothes: Oh, yes!  Thank goodness for Target and PinkBlush Maternity clothing. 
  • Labor Signs:  Oh, yes.  My contractions seem like they are still picking up slowly.  Hopefully they are actually doing something.
  • Moment of the Week:  We are being induced on Saturday! I am so excited to finally meet our baby.  I'm a little sad I won't be going into labor on my own, but God has a great plan for our little family and I am trusting Him.
  • Feeling:  Still very emotional. 
  • What I'm excited about/looking forward to:  The arrival of our baby.
