Kayla: 39 Week Update + Bump Picture

In case you missed it - We want to wish all you mama's out there a very....
Hi guys! As I sit here this Saturday evening to write this post, I am officially 39 weeks! It's so crazy to me that our baby boy could be here any day. I can't wait to meet him, to hold him, to stare in to his innocent and precious eyes. I am so excited :)
At my last appointment (last Tuesday) my doctor said I was measuring between  1 and 2 cm and about 60% thinned out. After that fairly good news, he said, "and now I have some bad news." Oh great, I thought...what now? He said that he will be going out of town starting Monday, at noon (the 12th) and will be gone for 2 weeks. Basically assuring me he will not be there for the birth (unless I have him before then) Now, I am writing this Saturday evening so there is still a chance I could have him tonight, tomorrow, or tomorrow night. But honestly, I haven't been feeling any contractions or having any other signs. So, we will see. Oddly enough, he actually missed my daughter's birth, as well. He was there to tell me I was having the baby, and also to say that unfortunately, he was on his way to a conference in Seattle. He will be 0 for 2 if he misses this one! However, another great doctor from his practice would be the one to deliver, so I am not too nervous about that. Well, here is my update picture and questions!

How far along: 39 weeks and 3 days
Total weight gain/loss: 12 lbs +
Maternity clothes: It has become too uncomfortable to wear my maternity jeans, so I've been sticking with yoga pants, long skirts, and maxi dresses! Maternity shirts all working still :)
Best moment this week: Just knowing that everyday we are one day closer to meeting our little man!
Movement: He is still moving around - it's almost creepy when he sticks his butt out and my whole stomach looks as if he is trying to literally break out!
Food cravings: Nothing in particular, although, definitely been enjoying about an ice cream bar a day.
Gender: BOY!
Labor signs: The doctor said his head is down low and ready to go, also he has definitely moved down - but its hard to say other than that. I wish my next appointment was sooner! The next available appointment wasn't until the 16th (the day before my due date!)
Belly button- in or out?: Its looking/feeling a bit odd, but it is still in.
What I miss: I'm honestly not THAT uncomfortable. There is nothing I really miss, althought I could do without the 11:30pm, 1:30am, and 4:30am bathroom trips. But it will only be replaced with night time feedings, but at least it will feel more rewarding!
What I am looking forward to: BABY DAY and Mom coming to town to be with us!
Milestones: Nursery is coming along, although still not done. Everything is packed and ready to go, along with a list taped to the front door so we don't forget anything! See my "What's in my Hospital Bag" Post HERE!

  1. Congrats! Prayers for a safe delivery. Enjoy your precious new little guy when he appears.

    We are awaiting grandbaby #2 that is due July 1st. She will join big brother who will be only 16mts. old at her birth. A handful to say the least. We haven't had a girl baby * the last was my great-niece* in 16-years so this will be fun.
