BUMPDATE: WEEK 39

Monday, August 15, 2016


How far along? 39 weeks tomorrow.

Total weight gain? 29 pounds total at my LAST APPOINTMENT TODAY!

Stretch marks? I think it's safe to say I won't have any stretch marks on my belly! Unless they happen overnight.. LAST DAY OF BEING PREGNANT!

Sleep? I absolutely cannot complain. Sleeping has been comfortable throughout this entire pregnancy. Well, minus those few days around week 34/35 when breathing was a little difficult while lying down to sleep.

Best moment? I will be waking up in the hospital TOMORROW MORNING!! They are inducing me tonight- we are arriving at the hospital at 7 pm! So so exciting to hear that we will have a baby in our arms sometime tomorrow. I was favorable enough for the elective induction that I mentioned in my last bumpdate, but I'm actually having an induction due to medical reasons. My blood pressure was elevated at today's appointment (and has been this past week when I've checked it at home), which worries my doctor. Not the best moment in regards to having elevated blood pressure, but WE'RE ABOUT TO HAVE A BABY!!!

Miss anything? Absolutely nothing.

Movement?
Her movement has decreased since my last appointment, which has definitely made me a little nervous.
 
Food cravings? Popsicles. Luckily, I can eat them while in labor too :)

How's the bump? I don't even feel huge- or uncomfortable. Very blessed with an easy pregnancy.

Labor signs? I was 2 cm dilated and 70% effaced at today's appointment. Baby girl and I have made quite the progress in only five days! Walking has definitely paid off- literally 1.5 miles every night people. I must say I'm ecstatic. I would've been upset if I had put in that much effort without any reward.. LOL.

Wedding rings? Still fit! Somehow I made it through my entire pregnancy without swelling!

Happy or moody most of the time? A little nervous about the uncertainty of labor and how these next few days can go, but definitely happy! And so excited to meet our girl SO soon!
 
Looking forward to? Heading to the hospital tonight- and all of the excitement to come.
