Pregnancy Update: Week 39

Pure insanity. I cannot believe we are “here” and honestly in disbelief baby M hasn’t come yet (so is my doctor!)

39weeks bump

I so clearly remember being jealous of women this close to delivering when I was at the beginning feeling so sick and wondering how I was going to make it to the end of September. But, here we are! I guess because we have been talking about the baby for so long, and it always seemed so far away, it is surreal that it has snuck up on me like this.

17weeks bump32weeks bump

Symptoms: VERY very antsy! I have been super cranky and hormonal this week, I’m sure it has to do with the anxiety and uncertainty of it all. Also probably the fact that I can’t get comfortable no matter what I do. I am starting to feel “puffy” and feel truly swollen all over for the first time. Also, people asking me if I have had the baby yet make me want to jump off a cliff. I PROMISE everyone will know when it’s time!

Baby’s Size: Watermelon! Crazy.

Maternity Clothes: I still fit into 2 pairs of shorts and a handful of tops. I sleep in Bobby’s large t-shirts.

Stretch Marks: None that I can see so far

Sleep: Not so good. Not because I’m not exhausted, but restless legs plus being super uncomfortable make it hard. More recently the anticipation has made it hard. I have been trying to nap when I can.

Miss Anything: Everything. Just…everything. Haha. (Can you tell I am so ready to be done?)

Cravings: I don’t eat much these days. I think I have lost weight.

Aversions: See above.

Looking Forward to: Getting her on the outside! Learning a new routine and a new normal.

What I’m Loving: Not feeling guilty for eating junk food, laying around the house, and taking naps. Soaking it up while I can!

Workouts: One walk, which was super uncomfortable

Don’t get me wrong, I feel so blessed to have had a pretty uneventful pregnancy so far, and know that things will be their own version of hard once baby M is here, but now I totally see what women mean at the end when they are just ready to be done and have the baby on the outside! I am definitely nervous about delivery, anxious about being in charge of a little person, but also so so done with this body that doesn’t feel like my own. Ready for my new normal!

QOTD: Did you get super antsy at the end of your pregnancy?

Now that it’s officially “fall” do your cravings change? (this question is for anyone!)
