39 Weeks…

39 Weeks!!!

Even as I write this I wonder if I will go into labor at any moment and never actually get to post it...

How Far Along? 39 weeks… my favorite comments include:
"When are you due?"
"Two babies?"
"You are REALLY pregnant!" (this might be my favorite comment… yes… I am  really pregnant :))

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I think I am at the point whereI am just throwing out numbers that sound right… so let's just say 45 pounds.

Baby Related Purchases: The really exciting things like gel nursing pads and breast pump part replacements.
Maternity Clothes:  Whatever I can still fit into...

Sleep: I am sleeping SO WELL.  And I am SO THANKFUL.  Every night I prioritize getting to bed when I feel tired because I really want to feel rested when I go into labor!

Movement: He is still moving a lot, but I think we have hit the point where he no longer has room for somersaults. 

What I miss: My clothes, working out, being able to get up without having to hoist myself up.  BD likes to try to help me up though… it is really cute.

Cravings: Food.

Anything making you queasy or sick: No… still indigestion and heartburn! 

Gender: It's a boy!!!

Labor Signs: Not that I have noticed… as long as we don't feel/see any signs we will go to a wedding tonight!

Symptoms: Huge belly, heart burn/indigestion, some awesome veins popping out of my legs (these *mostly* went away last time after I had BD so I am hoping for the same this time)… let's just be honest- compression tights/leggings are just unrealistic when it is 105 heat index out.

Best moments this week: 
*Going to the beach
*VBS again
*Playdates and pool time with friends

Looking forward to:
*Wedding tonight
*Baby J making his arrival… hopefully this week!!!!

Size of Baby: The size of a mini watermelon… lol

For the little:

Our Jameson… 
Wow!  We are really getting SO close to meeting you now.  Everyday we wake up your daddy and I wonder if it will be your birthday!  Is today the day?  Tomorrow?  Two weeks from now (hopefully not:))?  Will you be born in June or July?

I know I mention this almost every week that passes but I just wonder what you will be like… your personality and temperament.  The gifts that God has given you.  We can't wait to meet you and get to know you.

Today I have been praying that you will live a life of Christ's love… and that your sister and you will get along and become good friends!

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.  And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Eph. 5:1-2

We can't wait to hold you soon!

  1. Blessings from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for a healthy delivery. IN JESUS' NAME!

  2. I've really been enjoying your weekly updates. God has not yet chosen to bless us with another child and our 3yr old was born at 37 weeks. So I've never experienced those last few weeks things. I've enjoyed experiencing it through you. :)

    I honestly don't remember how much I gained. I had a friend who got on the scale backwards so she didn't have to see. Hey, whatever works! ;)

    1. I am glad you have been following along! The last few weeks are so interesting… a lot of "is today the day!"
      I have heard about the scale backwards thing too. I just figured after last time that I gain what my body needs to gain, stay healthy and don't worry about it!

  3. Love your comment remark up top.... and then I realized that I wrote "you are close then" on your other post. Haha!
    You look great!!

  4. Look at that sweet belly! Last chance for a June birthday today!! Maybe he will hold out for July 4th...always thought that would be a great time to have a birthday.

    1. No June birthday here… guess it will be July… maybe he is holding out for the 4th since that is his birthday and all!

  5. Best of luck to you, it will be time soon and blessings to your family. Do share your new baby pictures with us at Tuesday Talk.

    1. Can't wait to share the arrival at Tuesday talk!!!
