39 Weeks

How Far Along: 39 Weeks, I really hope this is the last weekly pregnancy update I do!

Size of Baby: Baby is the size of a watermelon. It really does feel like I am carrying around a watermelon in my stomach too!

Weight Gain: About 27 pounds. 

Maternity Clothes: All maternity except for a few cardigans that I just don't button all the way or those few bigger t-shirts and sweat pants. 

Gender: Still pretty excited we are having a girl. 

Movement: Lots of movement at night still. 

Sleep: Blah, it's so hard to get comfortable. Also getting out of bed is a whole new adventure with this huge belly!

Symptoms: My back hurts so bad, my hands and feet are so swollen and my ankle has started to hurt as well. I am also having more contractions and cramping, more so than last week, so that is good. 

I was pretty frustrated after my doctor's appointment this week because I haven't dilated anymore. I know it happens differently for everyone and I could be more dilated and still not go into labor so I am trying to remember that. People have told me the same thing happened to them and then they went into labor soon after. 

Food Cravings: Ice cream, anything sweet really. 

What I Miss: Being able to move around comfortably and easily.

What I’m Looking Forward To: Having this baby!! I just can't wait to finally meet her. 

Best Moment This Week: Spending time with my husband this weekend, and just talking about finally meeting our baby and what that will really be like. I also must say seeing all my friends at church with babies just makes me so thankful that I get to be a mom too.

You look adorable and a 27lb gain is really great! The end sucks and I know you're uncomfortable, It will be over soon. I hope you have that baby girl this week! :)

You would die if I showed you my 39 week belly lol.
