Week 39 Pregnancy Journal

Thank you all for your feedback on the cars!  I know cars are like a lot of things - people have opinions on what works best for them and their family so I appreciate all of the information!  I may be the pickiest car person last four cars have all been the exact same - color and all!  Hey, when you like what you like, why change?!  But this time, it's for obvious reasons - baby, pooch and many road trips in our future!  Okay on to more important things...

How far along?  39 weeks, due July 3.  THIRTY NINE WEEKS PREGNANT, HOLY MOLEY!!!!!!!!!!!

Size of Baby:  Probably around 6.5 pounds at this point?  I have no idea.

Gender: Kevin says Boy.  I say I don't know.  

Weight Gain: None but for the record, I feel huge this week. 

Maternity Clothes: Getting by.  My shirts are definitely getting too short.  Now that I'm only working in the office three days a week, I only really need to look presentable for those three days.  The rest of the time I wear workout clothes or shorts with a tee.

Nursery:  I went on Tuesday and got more fabric so the ottoman can be recovered.  Hopefully my guy Marty will be able to work it in before October. 

Movement: Yes but you can tell he/she has run out of room.  The movements are big!

Symptoms:  I feel like an old woman.  Rolling over in bed is an act of congress and I literally roll right out when I get up.  Our bed is pretty high up so that's been kinda funny!  Don't feel too badly for me though, I can still pretty much operate like I used to be able to.  Lisa and I walked twice this past week and for a few miles at our usual fast pace.  I hope to keep this up until THE day.

Sleep: Still up a couple times a night for the bathroom.  I do go right back to sleep though.  Thank you Benedryl.

Cravings:  Everything I can't have.  I have a list of foods and drinks I will have after the baby is here!

What I Miss:  Being able to plan my life.  Basically we are in limbo from now until July 10th which is when they said they will induce.  We are tentative for everything ha!  People understand though.  

Best Moment This Week:  Last Saturday when Kevin and I went and tooled around looking at neighborhoods, stopping by breweries or restaurants and doing whatever we wanted to do.  Not much longer til it's not only us anymore. 

Looking Forward to:  Whenever the big event occurs.  We're ready (I think!)!  It's scary but we're excited.  And I'm excited for my parents to get here.  That may make it seem more real!  I know, after 39 weeks, you'd think I would realize it's real...but it sometimes still does feel like a dream!


  1. Baby definitely seems to be sitting up high -- which totally makes sense with all your poor rib pain!

    And no wonder you haven't been able to gain any weight with this pregnancy given the teeny tiny amount of food options you've had to eat. Almost back to normal though!

  2. I think you will have her on Monday!

  3. Ahhh!!!! You're here girl! Are you doing anything to try and kick start labor or just letting baby do their thing

  4. Ahhhh 39 weeks?!?! Crazy! I know you are so ready to be done!!!

  5. Good luck girl! I know what you mean about it feeling real - I think It didn't hit me until I was in the delivery room about to meet our little one. It's crazy how quick it flies by. It's been so fun following along and I can't wait to see if it's a boy or girl!!

  6. Wooohoo! Can't wait to see what the baby is! Good luck, lady!

  7. So soon!! Such an exciting time for y’all!

  8. 39 WEEKS?!?!? Amazing!! So excited for you and Kevin. Today I think girl for you!:) such a blessed baby he//she will be!
