39 Weeks

I was really hoping I wouldn't make it to this post. I shouldn't even say that, though, because I'm going to be even more depressed when I have to write a 40 week post! Haha.

Baby is the size of a watermelon this week. Oy.

How far along? 39 weeks
Total weight loss/gain: + 2 lbs, +40 lbs total!
Maternity clothes? Only a few left that actually fit.
Sleep:Hit or miss. I usually sleep pretty well. One night this week I was up for 2 hours in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. Last night, I took a sleeping pill because I wanted to avoid that. Slept like a rock for almost 10 hours! 

Best moment this week: Finding out my step-grandma thinks I dress too immodestly for a pregnant woman and should be sewing my own clothes if I can't find appropriate ones in the store. Lol! 
Movement: I don't understand how she moves as much as she does. I'm pretty sure her head is engaged in my pelvis, but her body is still twisting around like crazy. 
Food cravings: Chips, Reese's pb cups, chocolate
Food aversions: Vegetables. ;-) 
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: I've been having mild contractions here and there. BH still non-stop. Pretty sure I'm losing chunks of my mucous plug. Nothing is working, though!

Belly Button in or out? Flattened out mass.
What I miss: Everything (e
xcept my period - don't miss that!)
What I am looking forward to: Getting this baby out of me!!!
Milestones: Making it to the March of Dimes approved "full term" today. 

I've had a headache for over 12 hours and am getting a little concerned about preeclampsia. I'll check my blood pressure at Meijer tonight and I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow at 10 am, so I'm sure I'll be fine. At this point, I might welcome a little bit of high blood pressure as an excuse to induce!!


  1. Ha! Favorite moment of the week is a good one. You should invest in a good flour sack.

    Losing the mucous plug is a good sign!

  2. Seriously? TMI!!!

  3. Really, "Anonymous", this is the entry you find TMI? Hahahaha.
