39 weeks...

A little comparison in the same dress... 39 weeks vs 26 weeks!!!

39 Weeks!  

How far along?  39 weeks and a couple of days... 
Total weight gain- somewhere between 35 and 40 pounds... just being honest... I swear I don't know how this happend ;)
Stretch marks- NONE!
Baby purchases- My dear friend Heidi and I ran to Babies R' Us the other night because I had a $5 of BRU bucks that were about to expire.  So we bought little sock rattles.
You put them on her feet and when she moves her feet they shake like rattles.  I am sure that was all that Bailey was waiting for and she will be coming any time now!
Movement- It has been a little less drastic at this point, but I still feel kicks and hiccups all the time.  Just less summersaults.  
What I miss- Still running...  the bridge run is coming up here in a couple of weeks and I want to do it with my school... but I know I can't.  
Cravings- Still want sweets...
Anything making you queasy or sick- Nothing!
Gender- Girl!!!!! Check out our thoughts on our little girl :)
Labor- Not really.  I think I have felt braxton hicks from time to time, but nothing consistent.  I left work yesterday praying it would be my last day.  so maybe I will go into labor today or tomorrow?  If not we are praying that I will by Tuesday.  My doctor will be out of town for a couple of days after that :(... I do not want to deliver with a random doctor, especially since I am going natural.
Symptoms- Nothing really.
Worries- Not too bad this week.  I feel like I should be more worried about labor, but I still feel like it is some distant event in the future.
Best moments of the week...
*Last big pre baby date night... got all dressed up and went out to a nice dinner just the two of us :)

*Over the past couple of weeks I have made some really cute headbands! Look for a post soon!

*Went out to eat with a bunch of teachers last night!

Looking forward to...
Size of baby- weighs as much as a mini watermelon... and maybe in our case not so mini :)
What the baby is up to- (from 
Your baby's waiting to greet the world! She continues to build a layer of fat to help control her body temperature after birth, but it's likely she already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.

Get Caught Up!!!



  1. Praying for you guys as the time gets closer ... cannot wait for you to meet your little girl! Cannot wait to see the pics!
