39 Weeks Bumpdate

Yes, I'm still here posting updates! So I guess we'll have to wait and see whether I make it to 40 weeks or not.
39 Weeks
How Far Along: 39 Weeks

Size of the Baby: A mini-watermelon

Maternity Clothes: I'm sure you've probably noticed looking at the past few weeks of photos, I'm most definitely wearing the same clothes over and over. But at least I still have a few different options that work.

Nursery: It's done! Or at least I'm not sure what else would need to be done. I have had some issues ordering things for it online though. Like the purple and yellow crib sheets that were actually purple and green. Or the fact I ordered 2 diaper storage bags that were supposed to be purple and yellow, but they were purple and orange. Or the fact I meant to order all bumgenius 4.0, but instead ordered one elemental. I have already returned the sheets, but I'm thinking I may keep the orange bag since the color doesn't really matter. Also may keep the elemental so I can see if I like them better and if needed purchase more of them instead.

Stretch Marks: It looks like I may actually get through the pregnancy without them!

Sleep: Still pretty awesome. There actually has been a night or two where I've woken up to use the bathroom, but that's really more the exception than the norm.

Movement: There's a lot going on in my stomach. Part of me keeps trying to convince myself they're contractions, but I'm pretty sure it's just the baby.

Cravings: Have I mentioned there's a Chick-fil-a about to open around the corner from us? Well, there is, and every time I drive by it I think how amazing their holiday peppermint cookies n cream milkshakes are. Of course even once I have the baby I know I can't go crazy on them since peppermint supposedly isn't great for breastfeeding. But still, I can't wait to have one!

Symptoms: I keep googling early labor symptoms to see if something stands out. Like last night I felt really tired and searched to see if it was an early labor symptom. It actually is, except for me, I'm pretty sure I was just sleepy.

What I Miss: I guess just being able to eat what I want when I want. It's definitely a pain to pay attention not only to what you're eating, but when you're eating, and that's something I won't miss once the baby is here.

Looking Forward To: While I may not be emotionally ready for the baby to be here, everything else basically is. The nursery is finished. We have a new car with car seats installed. We have our holiday decorations up and I'm pretty much finished with all my present buying. (Although do need to start wrapping.) Basically the only thing I'm waiting on at this point is for the baby to arrive, which really and truly could happen any day now!
