Mark spent all of his past weekend nesting. I have never seen Mark vacuum and mop our entire house with such a vengeance. Not only that, he bleached our shower, organized his office and about 10 other things that desperately needed to be done. So..I send a HUGE shout out to my man! Thank you for basically doing everything I needed to do around the house!
While Mark nested, I folded laundry. And took a nap. And hung the last decoration in the nursery.
Wow. I’m officially 39 weeks pregnant and time is moving sooooo sloooooowly. What is that about patience being a virtue? Holy moly…I need to be more virtuous. I’m trying to do everything I can to keep myself busy so I don’t twiddle my thumbs hoping every weird body thing I experience is the Bean trying to make his debut!
Fixing a recall on my car (the dealership, not me!), a Costco trip with my mom, lunch out with friends, a pedicure, work, freezer cooking…
What is baby up to at 39 weeks?
- Baby is waiting to greet the world!
- He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it’s likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, about the size of a mini-watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) (At my last appointment, the Bean was estimated to be close to 8 lbs!)
- The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.
How is mama feeling?
25 lbs on the dot
Still (barely) trucking along. People get really uncomfortable working out around a late third trimester pregnant woman…Ha!
Here’s the rundown from last week:
Monday: Fit Camp
Tuesday: 30 minute walk
Wednesday: Fit Camp
Thursday: 30 minute walk
Friday: 30 minute walk
Really horrible. It takes me an hour or more to fall asleep and then I wake up throughout the night to strong contractions and having to run to the bathroom..
None that I can see!
Starting to slow down – he’s totally out of room!
LOTS of contractions and cramping
Nonstop heartburn/acid reflux
Nothing new or interesting. I still eat SO much watermelon and drink SO much water. We also caved and bought some Banana Pudding ice-cream last weekend…it was incredible. I’m basically eating small meals throughout the day. These are a couple of meal highlights from the last couple of days…
Please send prayers and positive thoughts my way! I would love for the Bean to make his way healthily into the world sooner rather than later! 😉
