Week 39

Week 39
Self portrait at 39 weeks

I cannot believe I am at my last week of pregnancy... well, I could go over my due date, but we're already at 39 weeks! Wow.

More observations from my pregnancy, since it's pretty much all I can think about:

+ I have an insatiable hunger. Truly- I am constantly eating. (Which is strange because "they" say that you usually tend to slow down at this point because there's not much room left in the belly.)

+ I love cookies, treats, candies.... sweets. But, today- I didn't let myself get too carried away. (Go me!)

+ While reading in bed the other night, baby boy was making the most amazing moves. Jeff and I were staring at my belly laughing in awe.

+ I can no longer bend down. Really- if I drop something, I just shrug and think "ah well."

+ Jeff and I cannot stop talking about baby. We think about him all the time and can only anticipate what our lives will be like... but, we are so excited.

+ Baby's room is just about done. I love to go in his room to organize all of his cute things.

+ The whole nesting phenomenon? It's true! I've been going non-stop for the past week trying to get my home in order (and clean) before baby arrives.

+ After dealing with some crazy issues over the past couple of weeks, that no one should ever have to deal with, Jeff and I already feel an overwhelming sense of protection for our little boy.

+ I've been listening to this album a lot. I know baby already likes it.

+ Co-workers stop by my office door and constantly say "You're still here?!" (It's getting old.)

+ My stomach is ginormous. It's pretty amazing, actually.

+ I am enjoying my sleep while I can. (Even if I'm constantly waking up in the middle of the night.) In fact, it's time for me to turn in.

I cannot believe that we are just days away from meeting our baby boy! Wish us luck!

Aaaah, you are so cute! And I was totally starving up until I pushed that little boy out, so it's not just you! Just wait, if you're breastfeeding, you'll be just as hungry! Can't wait to see your little boy.

Haha...I TOTALLY remember not being able to bend and just leaving things for Cam to pick up for me. And the comments about being still here...that got SO old. I only got that with Brackon since he's the only one I went over with, but that was paLENTY for me.

Great photo. Love your blog.

My baby is now 7 months, and I still have not lost my insatiable appetite. I'm not sure if it will ever go away. I wished it would!

hannah said...

Good luck Beautiful! I am so excited for you both. I am sorry to hear about what happened a couple of weeks ago. I hope that all is behind you and you feel calm and relaxed. He is going to be here so soon!
Can't wait to meet him!

i first bought that innocence mission album when my little girl was two. she's almost seven now and i still sing a lot of those songs to her and her little brother. they are my go-to lullabies, and i love the way karen peris sings them.
good luck to you!
