Week 39 (the FINAL week!)
Percentage Cooked: 98%!
Baby Size: 7 lb. 2 oz. estimate, as of Wednesday – GOOOO Baby!
Countdown to Baby: 1 week (273 days down, 7 OR LESS to go!)
Symptoms: How small ARE those piggy bones? My poor, swollen feet!
Hourly bathroom breaks.
LOTS of Baby movement!
I’m super hot, but I can blame a lot of that on our weather (that the non-pregnant me LOVES!)!
Cravings: Oreos, ice cream, jelly beans, Sierra Mist
Weight Gain: Well, I was up 37 lbs. as of Wednesday, but then lost a pound as of Friday – so 36 lbs. (this may be my last Dr. weigh in)…that’s right, it’s time to LOSE weight!
Related Purchases: Nothing exciting – hand sanitizer, a travel wipe holder, snacks for the hospital, more thank you cards
Fear of the Week: I’M HAVING A BABY THIS WEEK!
I have fear about our baby’s health and safety, but faith that God is fair and good and will protect us both. Prayers for this little one are welcomed and appreciated ♥
Relief of the Week: WE’RE GOING TO MEET OUR BABY THIS WEEK!
There is a plan in place…I promise to share it all (well, all to a point!) after the dust settles. Just know for now that we are having the baby this week…in a day that ends with “day”… but doesn’t start with an “s.”
What? I’m sorry! I am definitely an oversharer, but need to draw the line somewhere!!!
Randomness: Is it wrong or is it wrong to play “Only The Good Die Young” at an OBGYN’s office? I mean, it innocently came on the radio, but…seriously?
We have been very productive! Remember our house to-do list? Well, we killed it AND MORE (mostly over the past 2 months). Everything is checked off, except for some unnecessary items on the wish list (like getting a hanging plant for outside) and the washing down all of the baseboards etc. This house is ready for a whole new kind of chaos. ;)
Scott’s Quote of the Week: If only I could show you what Scott’s face looked like when he gave me a foot massage last night. It was the only one that I asked for throughout this pregnancy and it was well deserved! I swear, the swelling went down immediately! Why didn’t I think of this sooner? Poor Scott hated every second of it, but sucked it up (the hating, not my toes). He’s such a trooper – thanks, love!
Me [totally sad about how my face looks in a picture]: “Wahhhh”
Scott: “You’re supposed to look like that!”
Me: “Babe, I really wanted to wash down all of the baseboards in the house, but by the time I got to doing it – I realized that I waited too long. It’s really hard to get up and down so I just did it in the family room.”
Scott [totally kidding]: “ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I MEAN, WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING?!”
Haha – love him!
So I will be signing off for a week or so. I will catch everyone up as soon as I can. Please stay tuned…you know you can’t live without knowing if it’s a BOY or a GIRL and what we name this sweet angel!!!
p.s. Next time you hear from me, I’m going to be a MOMMY!!!
p.s.s. For those of you who know more info – ZIP IT! It’s our secret to tell ♥ (This goes for on Facebook, too!)
