39 Weeks

39 weeks

How far along: 39 weeks and the size of a watermelon – about 20 inches long and possibly over 7 pounds (although I’m betting she’s under 7 lbs based on the birthweights of Mike and myself – we’ll see!).  Either way, I feel like I am definitely carrying around a watermelon these days, so this seems fitting!

Gender: Baby Girl

Sleep: I have been blessed with some decent sleep this week which I have not been taking for granted!  I slept in until after 9 both mornings this weekend, and I cherished every minute knowing that this could be the last time that happens – ever!  Haha!

Best moment this week: My good friend and coworker who is like a brother to me finally tied the knot Friday night, and I’m proud to say I was instrumental in setting these two lovebirds up on a blind date a little over a year ago.  They were married at a beautiful North Georgia winery and vineyard, and my sister flew in to photograph the wedding!  We had so much fun celebrating at the wedding and have enjoyed a much-needed slow weekend here at home spending time with Kat and preparing for Molly’s arrival.

39 weeks

Miss anything: Just being comfortable.  I’m getting to that point where I am just constantly uncomfortable, and it hurts to get up and down, bend over, walk, stand, you name it.  I’m definitely looking forward to being able to move around a little more easily again one day soon.

Movement/Symptoms: Molly is still as active as ever which is good, but now we’re just playing the waiting game.  At my appointment this past Wednesday, I was 1 cm dilated.  You can sit there for weeks, though, so no sign of real progress.  I’m interested to see if we’ve moved any further along at my next appointment in a couple of days.  Fingers crossed!

Cravings: Still sweets – had some yummy pistachio and strawberry gelato last night that hit the spot!

Looking forward to: Meeting Molly June very very soon!!

In the meantime, here are some pics of the 98% complete nursery.  I am so happy with how it is coming together!  The lighting is weird in some of the pictures, but the walls are really more of a mint green like in the last picture with the book shelves.

My sister painted that fabulous canvas print after I spotted it on Etsy and it was sold out.  I love it and love that Molly will have a piece of her Aunt Kitty in her room!

In love with these arrow sheets!

Our comfy glider and fabulous antique dresser turned changing table.  Kat helped me hang some  frames and tassel garland today, and I'm so happy with how it turned out!

36 Weeks

36 weeks

How far along: 36 weeks and the size of a honeydew – over 18.5 inches long and almost 6 pounds.

Gender: Baby Girl

Sleep: Not great but better than it has been lately (knocks on wood).

Best moment this week: My BFF Christy gave birth to her precious son Eli, and everyone is healthy and doing well!  I’m so thrilled that we were able to share this pregnancy journey together and now motherhood – there is nothing like having a best friend to go through such a life-changing time with and with whom you can share every crazy thought and moment knowing that there will be absolutely no judgement.  If only we lived closer so that our babes could have regular play dates!

Miss anything: It’s really becoming difficult to move around comfortably which is making it harder and harder to be productive and get things done before Molly’s arrival.  Thank God Mike has been a saint and has been doing as much as he can to help me out, but it still gets frustrating.

Movement/Symptoms: I am still feeling a lot of movement and am constantly watching my stomach shift from side to side forming crazy shapes.  Besides that, I’m still feeling a good bit of heartburn and starting to swell in my hands and feet.  I think I’ve given up on getting my wedding rings back on since I took them off about a week ago, and I barely recognize my feet and sausage toes anymore :).

Cravings: Nothing new here… Ice cream, chocolate, jalepenos.

Looking forward to: Getting this nursery in order!  We still have a couple of things that have been delayed that I’m anxiously waiting on to help feel the room more complete – mainly the glider and bedding.  I finally started washing all of the precious little clothes, blankets and towels today, so I’m excited to get all of that put away soon and feel a little more prepared.  We still don’t have anything up on the walls yet, but I’m hoping we can tackle some of that this week.  I’m also looking forward to my 36 week appointment this week where they will externally feel to see what position Molly is in – hoping she is head down and planning to stay there!

30 Weeks

30 weeks

Holy bags under my eyes!  Keeping it real this week with no makeup… some days I’m doing good just to shower ;).

How far along: 30 weeks and the size of a cucumber – about 16 inches long and 3 pounds.  Can’t believe we only have 10 weeks to go?!  It’s getting real…

Gender: Sweet baby girl!

Maternity clothes: Living in.

Belly button in or out: Starting to protrude. 

Sleep: So much better this week and much needed!  Hope this streak continues…

Best moment this week: Finally picking a paint color for the nursery!  The paint is going up this week, and I can’t wait for everything to finally start coming together in there.  We are going with a mint green paint for the walls… hoping it comes out exactly as planned!

Miss anything: Mainly just energy, but it’s not too terrible.  I really start heading downhill in the afternoons… very similar to how I felt in the first trimester.  I also miss being able to stand for 10 minutes without my back just killing me.

Movement: Still all over the place!

Cravings: This weekend I satisfied my sweet tooth with a Chick-fil-A peach milkshake and Krispy Kreme doughnut.. Oops!  Both were worth every calorie. 🙂

Looking forward to: Dinner tomorrow with some good girlfriends, the nursery getting painted, and my dad visiting for a night next weekend!
