Bump-date: 39 Weeks


My desire to take my weekly chalkboard pictures is usually overpowered by my desire to stay in my sweatpants on the couch...
so for 39 weeks, we will settle for a picture from Christmas Eve, which was actually the 39 week mark.
Merry Christmas from the (almost) three of us!

How far along:
39 weeks

Baby’s size: a small pumpkin... or a cat. Cats, cats, cats!

Sleep: still laughing at those people who have recommended I "stock up on sleep now" - obviously you've never been 9 months pregnant and tried to sleep through the night!

Loving: Christmas cookies, Christmas candy, the steak fajita salads my sister made us for dinner one night - so delicious!!

Loathing: trying to roll over, not being able to drink special holiday drinks with my family, being hot everywhere I go because it's been 70* in late December!...

Movement: every direction but down lately. Little man is definitely out of space and ready to vacate - he just apparently doesn't know which way to go!

Labor signs: nothing really - having some Braxton-Hicks contractions, and starting to efface and dilate, but not enough to count. Insert crying emoji here.

Symptoms: round-ligament and groin pain, some abdominal cramping, tiredness, swelling in my legs and feet if I am too active

Mood: ready to get this party started!! Anxious, nervous, eager... it's a range these days.

Husband: assembled the Pack 'n Play, moved the swing to the living room, and is ready to be the one who gets to hold the baby for a change.

Can't wait for: my due date!! And ringing in 2016 later this week - maybe with a baby on hand??

So so close! Also: " still laughing at those people who have recommended I "stock up on sleep now" - obviously you've never been 9 months pregnant and tried to sleep through the night!" <-My life right now.
