39 Weeks...still cookin!


How far along? 39 Weeks...literally 2 days away from his due date!  Ahhhh!!!
Baby Size: The size of a watermelon...as big as he's going to get!
Total weight gain: 28 pounds...though oddly enough my doc had me at 25 pounds this past Thursday.  Weird!
Maternity clothes? Quickly running out of options...just wearing lots of sundresses.  This was a Forever 21 find.
Stretch marks? No stretch marks, but starting to get heat rash on my belly...it is HOT here!
Sleep: Still sleeping surprisingly well. 
Best moment this week: Nesting!  Got lots done around the house...plus got my hair and toes done.  I'm ready to meet this little guy!!
Miss Anything? Now, I just miss not feeling like a swollen blob.  It's gotten pretty hot here and it's definitely taking a toll!
Movement: Yes, not as often but he shifts around.
Food cravings: Anything cold!  Ice cold water, popsicles, ice cream...fruit too!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just raw red onions.  I really wonder if I'll ever like them again.
Gender: BOY!!
Labor Signs: No, and it's starting to get frustrating.  I again, showed no progress at my last doc appointment which is disappointing.  If I've felt Braxton Hicks, they've been very mild.  I know women go into labor all the time without any signs leading up to it, but it's just so crazy not knowing!  And yes, I'm starting to look towards all the things I can that help induce labor naturally.  Got any tips?
Symptoms: Lower cramping, swollen feet, having to pee every 5 minutes...the usual!
Belly Button in or out? Still at a halfie status.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: SOOO ready to meet our son...so excited and anxious all in one.  I am such a control freak, so the "not knowing" has been pretty tough.  I know he'll come when he's ready, but I just hope it's not much longer!
Looking forward to: OMG, the first pangs of labor!  Finally getting to meet our little guy!  Finishing his nursery {there has been some major "map" drama!}.  And if nothing else, our next doctor appointment which is this Wednesday...his DUE DATE!  Come on baby, let's do this thing!

Keep your toes and fingers crossed and say a little prayer that he makes his debut this week.  We are SO ready!!

  1. He will be here before you know it! Things that induce labor well my knowledge goes as far has the show "Friens" talked about it so I guess spicy food and sex.
    I'll keep my fingers crossed that he will be here soon!

  19. Don't fret! I felt the same way as you! Sterling came two days after his due date and everyday I was like please come today! I stayed dilated 1cm the whole last month and was the same at every doctors visit. Then one night I just started having contractions. But I know how you feel. I tried all the remedies ate spicy food (which btw I ate mexican the night I actually went into labor), drank raspberry leaf tea and I even was going to drink castor oil but my doctor advised me against it! I walked everyday too but Im not sure that helped. Good luck girl and he is to hoping he makes his debut this week!

  41. I swear eating pineapple kick started things for me!

    Also, I was one of those ladies who had no real labor signs. Imagine my surprise when, at my dr appt., I was over 5cm and sent straight to the hospital ;)

    Good luck!
