On This Day Last Year . . .

Today was my due date! I was soooo miserable. Here's an excerpt from my blog on that day:

How far along? 40 weeks!
Total weight loss/gain: Oh boy.  I gained 4 lbs this week!! Probably because my diet mainly consists of chocolate chip cookies.  +42 lbs. total.   (And I officially surpassed Justin.)
Maternity clothes? Obviously.  In fact, most of them don't fit.  I've resorted to wearing Justin's biggest t-shirts. 
Sleep: Ok.  Rolling over is quite painful.  And I wake up often to scratch.
Best moment this week: Last day of work!
Movement: I actually think she has slowed down this week.  She still has her crazy times, though. 
Food cravings: Chocolate chip cookies. Restaurant food.
Food aversions: None.
Gender: GIRL!!!!
Labor Signs: Maybe starting to lose my mucus plug. Constant Braxton Hicks.
Belly Button in or out? Out, covered in stretch marks, and itchy red bumps! It's really attractive!
What I miss: My old body. Being comfortable. 
What I am looking forward to: Getting this baby out of me!!!!
Milestones: Reaching my due date!

I had a doctor's appointment that day and got my membranes stripped.  I thought for sure that would send me into labor.  No such luck!  I was also pretty sure I was going to die of PUPPS.  Worst thing ever!  Here are some pictures to remember that day.  :-)

Doesn't it look fake? It looks so unnatural - this big thing attached to my body.  I can't believe I could function!
Stay tuned for some more fun memories of this week last year!


  1. Eeekk Sadie..I had to turn my eyes away! jk! She was worth it all!!!

  2. Ahh, you forget how big you get at the end!! I love the expression on your face in that picture :P

    This made me look back at my own 40 week post... apparently I also ate lots of cookies! Haha.

    Looking forward to more memories :)

  3. ...and look at you now! SKINNY MINNIE!!! SOOOO LUCKY!

  4. your belly does look a bit unreal! kinda like they attached a huge watermelon to the front of you! It is amazing that our skin can stretch that far and not just burst. My belly with Christiana especially was outrageously huge. The things we do for love! :) Tracie

  5. It seriously looks like you're hiding a basketball under there. :) I went past my due date too... and about this time last year I thought I was going to die from puppps too! Ugh! Things are so much better this year, aren't they?! :)
