Bumpdate: {37 Weeks!!}

Oh yeah, there are definitely exclamation points in this post title. Why,  you ask? Oh, I dunno. Maybe because we have a full term baby on our hands - eep!

We are keeping our fingers crossed that she stays put until our scheduled C-section on October 14, but it's still totally exciting to have arrived at this point, which seemed forever away back in February.

Weight Gain: I think it's somewhere in the 16-17 lb. neighborhood. I'm expecting to land around 20 lbs. if we make it to 39 weeks, but we'll see.

Baby's Growth: Thriving away! They think she'll be in the 6 lb. range. 

Cravings: Soup! I made Outback Steakhouse's copycat baked potato soup from this blog on Monday and it was delicious. I've eaten on it for lunch nearly every day this week.

How I'm Feeling: Le tired of being pregnant : ) No major swelling in my feet or hands (yet), but she's so squished in there that any time she moves, it hurts like the dickens. Surprisingly though, I've still got quite a bit of energy. Very, very grateful to have had a healthy pregnancy. 

No, it's not your eyes. This pic is just horribly blurry. 
Movement: Since she's too big to give full out jabs and kicks in there anymore, most of her movement consists of rolling and squirming, which she does constantly.

Favorite  Moment this Week:  Hitting the full term mark - 37 weeks!

Sleeping: Nope. And I really wish I could. I know that I won't get any when she arrives either. It is impossible to get comfy when you have a watermelon attached to your torso. I dare you to try it.

Clothes: Pants are all maternity, shirts are a mix of both. Since I'm working from home right now, I've been living in maternity leggings and comfy - but cute - jersey tops. I love these from V.S.

I also look JUST like these models when I wear mine right now, too. Except not. At all. 

A couple few recent purchases, all of which are really comfy cozy.

Gillian & O'Malley Women's Entwined Scroll Robe in Black - here
Sweet C'est La Vie Sweater - here
H&M Maternity Leggings in Black - here
Polka Dot Me Home Dress from Riffraff - here

(This is what I'm taking to the hospital for our "coming home" family photo opp. It's actually really roomy, so it will accommodate the postpartum bump nicely.)

I also picked up a couple sets of these pajama pants yesterday after your advice on the "go bag" post!

Most looking forward to: That moment when it's "go" time. It could be any day now, so the anticipation is really kind of fun! I'm still hoping to have her on the scheduled day, but the not knowing is really exciting.

Thankful for: I'm most thankful that this part of the journey - the pregnancy itself -  is drawing to a close. I'm so ready to meet our baby girl and begin this next chapter.

Let's just say I'm excited for the end so we can get to the beginning.


  1. You look beautiful! And I totally need to invest in those VS tops!

  2. Congrats on your upcoming little lady! I just wanted to let you know (since you're having a c-section) look into family centered c-section birth plans. You can Google them or make your own..but you can add things like delayed cord clamping & immediate skin to skin. Make that birth yours! Best of luck!
