And Baby Makes Three…

Since I was a little procrastinator in my last few weeks of my pregnancy, I still need to update you all on 39 weeks belly post…my water broke the next evening, so understandable I had something going on and couldn’t post!

Long story short, I ended up having a pretty unique & intense birthing experiencing, which I would love to share with all of you, but at another time.  But stay tuned for some posts of our maternity shoot, my last week of pregnancy, some things that got me through my pregnancy & afterwards, and of course of Baby P debut!

But for now, we feel so blessed and in awe of our little peanut!  We have embraced parenthood whole-heartedly and are taking in all the precious moments.  Yes, life had changed and it is different, but I couldn’t image what life would be like without her now!

Full-Term!

Maternity

Hubby & I went out to Fort McClary over the weekend and did some “selfie” maternity shots…now I wouldn’t recommend it because it’s really hard, but with limited time and being lazy, someone forgot to book herself a maternity shoot.  So what’s a girl to do?  Grab her handy-dandy tripod and her husband, find some great light and a good location and take a few shots!  My husband did a great job behind the camera, I think it was harder for me since I didn’t really give good directions and was at a loss for how to pose!  (More to come, I’ve been too tired (lazy) to edit these days).

How far along?  37 Weeks, I’m considered full-term!

Total weight gain:  39lbs…haha, which seems like a whole lot to me because I’m not sure where it is?!

Maternity clothes?:  Yes and I’m ready to return to my normal clothes, or at least somewhat normal clothes!

Have you started to show yet:  I didn’t think this could be a stupid question…

Symptoms:  Sore feet!!!  Like owie sore…but hubby gives great massages in the evening 🙂

Stretch marks?: Nope! YAY!

Sleep:  Off & on…

Best moment this week:  The midwife telling us that I was 1cm, which means absolutely nothing, but it was encouraging!  And getting everything ready for her arrival, including doing 5 loads of laundry!!!

Miss Anything?  It’s going to sound weird, but, crossing my legs, it’s just not the same anymore with a big belly in the way!!!

Movement:  Yes, less room in belly = her squirminess is more alien-like!

Food cravings:  Nothing really…sweets I guess!

Anything making you queasy or sick:  No

Gender: Girl!  And we have a name 🙂 you’ll have to wait and see though!

Labor Signs:  I don’t think so, but everyone says I’ve dropped which is a good thing…but she could come tomorrow or she could come in 3 weeks!

Belly Button in or out?  Flat, flat, flat!  Maybe even trying to pop out!

Wedding rings on or off?  Still on.

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy :)  but very anxious!!!

Looking forward to:  Our next appointment and of course meeting her!
