39 Week Update
I really thought my 37 week update would be my last but it looks like this baby wants to hang tight for a little while longer! We're one week away from my due date which is just completely surreal.
How far along: 39 Weeks
Baby’s Size: Pumpkin, 19-22 inches, 7 lbs.
How many days to go: 7 Days to go (OMG!)
Total Weight Gain So Far: 32 lbs (Going over 30lbs annoys me, but I'm at the idgaf stage in this pregnancy LOL! #Watchoutforthebiggirl)
Exercise?: Since stopping my 3 times a week strength training work outs I've picked up walking a lot! Thank god I have dog that gives me a reason to keep moving when all I want to do is lay down on the couch. Like I mentioned in my last update, although I stopped strength training I'm super proud of myself for sticking out my workouts for such a long time through my pregnancy. I really think it helped me to keep my weight down, self esteem up, decrease stretch marks, and keep my overall physique looking the same!
I’m Feeling: Ready to deliver this baby! I honestly still can't believe we're less than a week away from meeting our daughter. It's such an exciting time in our lives! It's crazy to me how fast this pregnancy flew by and I just hope that I'm able to savor every little newborn moment before that flies by!
Missing anything: I've been day dreaming pretty regularly about a long congratulatory sip of red wine after the baby is born. I can't wait for it.
Movement: Constant! I might miss these little baby kicks once she's out!!
Food Cravings Lately: My appetite has slowed down a lot and I think its because my stomach is smushed in there that I don't have too much room to fill it with anything. However, my thirst level is INSANE, I drink about a gallon of water a day.
Currently living in: Sweats since I'm home on maternity leave and I have nowhere to go and no one to impress haha!
Wedding Rings On or Off: I haven't even attempted to wear my rings in over two weeks (I've resorted to wearing a costume ring as a wedding band in public)! Makes me so sad because I love my rings so much but they are way too painful to squeeze on. I'm praying that my hands go back to normal after birth!
Happy or Moody: I'm definitely moody! I'm waddling around, using the restroom 10,000 times day, and just feeling super pregnant. I wouldn't trade any of these experiences for the world, but it does take it's toll on you especially in the dead of summer!
Looking forward to: Meeting our baby and seeing her beautiful face!
