Bumpdate || 39 Weeks



How far along: 39 weeks and this is officially my last bumpdate!! I am going into the hospital tomorrow night to get induced, so we should have a baby by Friday! I can't tell you how excited and anxious I am to finally have my baby in my arms. I seriously can't wait!! 

Due Date: November 7, 2015 

Baby is the size of: a watermelon. She's weighing anywhere from 7 to 9 pounds. I haven't had an ultrasound since 20 weeks, so we really have no idea how much she is weighing in at right now. I was a huge baby and Steven was crazy long, so I'm expecting to push out a big girl. 

Symptoms: Lots of pressure in my lower back and abdomen, but I really don't have any complaints. I've been incredibly blessed to have experienced such an easy pregnancy.

Gender: Our sweet baby GIRL!

Name: Charlie Elizabeth

Movement: She gave us a little scare last Thursday evening. I hadn't felt her move in a while, so I began bribing her with juice, sweets, and lots of poking. None of it was working, so after about four hours of no movement I called the doctor and went to labor and delivery for monitoring. She looked great on the monitor and was just having a lazy day. After about 30 minutes hooked up to the machine she gave me a few rolls and stretches. I've determined that she is just out of room in there! 

Nursery: DONE and it's my most favorite room! You can see her nursery reveal here.

Labor Signs: I've been having lots of contractions, but they don't seem to be doing much. My NST on Monday showed that I was contracting every 6-7 minutes. I was really hoping the contractions would be the start of labor, but they seemed to die out Monday afternoon. I was still only 1 cm dilated on Monday, so I don't foresee her making an appearance before my scheduled induction on Thursday night.

Sleep: As good as one can expect at 39+ weeks pregnant. I'm up tossing and turning throughout the night, but it's not terrible. I guess my body is just preparing me for the midnight feeding sessions! 

Best moment this week: Scheduling our induction for the end of this week! It feels so good to have a plan and know that the end is in sight! I can't wait to snuggle our girl in my arms!! 

Missing anything: Nothing that can't wait 2 more days!

Cravings/Aversions: Sweets, as usual. I've noticed a decrease in my appetite over the last couple of weeks, so I'm trying to pay extra attention to my food choices to ensure I'm getting enough nutrients.

Mood: So excited and anxious! This has been the slowest week ever!! I can't wait to start this induction process tomorrow night and have my baby girl in my arms in just a couple of days!! 

Looking forward to: Do I even have to say it? Meeting our girl at the end of the week!! 

Husband is: Just as excited as I am to meet his baby girl!! 

New mommy question: Nothing new this week.
