39 weeks

Due Date: August 24, 2012
How far along: 39 weeks
The Bump:

Total weight loss/gain: +22 lbs total

Workouts: None at all. I know it sounds silly but I'm trying not to walk or do too much - I want to keep this baby in until next Friday! 

Baby items purchased: Nothing this week - we really have everything we need to start!

Sleep: What's that? Been getting up at 5 AM every morning this week and can't fall back's getting more painful to flip over at night with this big ol' belly and things are just all around uncomfortable, but that's to be expected. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope

Symptoms: Swelling feet, backache, heartburn, peeing all the time.

Food cravings: Been cooking and eating healthy with Tyge all week which has been good! Craving ice cream still though. :)
Maternity clothes: Oh yes

Stretch marks: None - happy about that!

Gender ideas: Tyge is 52% sure it's a girl, I'm 51% sure it's a boy. One of us is right!

Movement: Still moving around though I'm sure it's getting cramped in there! Now it's more sharp pokes rather than fluttery kicks. It's been fun to play "guess the body part" while feeling around my belly. 

Labor Signs: Head is down, and as of this week I'm 50% effaced and dilated 1-2 cms. Having some mild Braxton Hicks contractions.
Miss anything: Good sleep! And I am getting pretty excited to have that first glass of red wine in a few weeks... :)

Best moment this week: My baby shower at work today! My coworkers put so much thought into everything, from the cute decorations in the conference room, to getting my favorite food from Good Earth, white cake with white frosting from a bakery in Hudson, arranging fun games to play, and getting me very generous gifts. I am so blessed to work with some awesome people and will truly miss them while I'm out for 3 months! It's so weird to think that each night I leave could be my "last" one there!

Looking forward to: A quiet weekend with my hunny to include date night at Acqua tonight and boating all day tomorrow. Then keeping this baby in next week while my mom stays with me until he gets home next Friday!

And a funny pic Tyge snapped of Keely and me in the grass. :)


  1. Too cute :) love the pic of you and keely! Enjoy Acqua if you haven't been yet - its delicious! Love you!

  2. Yayyy!!! Almost time! Ps- no stretch marks? You are a l.u.c.k.y girl.

  3. Looking good! I can hardly wait to meet your little one!

  4. Yeah, one more week! Words can't express how happy I am for you and Tyge. Hopefully (s)he stays in there until Friday, but if you need anything, please call! Can't wait to meet this special, little blessing.

  5. We are praying that the little one comes before we get to Minneapolis on Friday!! Look forward in seeing you again and meeting Tyge and of course the new addition!
    Blessings, Janice and Joel (AKA) Jay
