This Texas Baby: Week 39 Check-In


BABY'S TASK FOR THE WEEK: Umm, would you like to come out this week? That would be a good task. Cause I am TOTALLY ready for that. But you seem to be perfectly happy in your current little home. But, good job on gaining over 2 lbs from 3 weeks ago! The U/S tech said that while I am still measuring smaller than 39 weeks you are weighing in at a whopping 6lbs 14 oz now! Which, I am still aware that all of those measurements are off and we wont really know how big you are until you decide to show up! So, um, show up soon, ok?

SYMPTOMS: Um! Pretty sure you have given me a stretch mark! Who waits until the last week to give their momma a stretch mark! Guess it is those 2lbs you put on. (And hey, if it is only the one, I won't complain!) And, I still have my belly button for those who may be wondering....

CURRENT MOOD: Mostly just ready for you to get here. But I am also really starting to get worked up over the actual process of getting you OUT OF ME. See, I really want to avoid a c-section, as I am sure most women want to as-well, but if anything about labor is hereditary I might have some problems. See, none of the women in my family have ever dilated! I don't know all the specifics but I know they were all give the pitocin (which I want to avoid also...) but it ended up doing nothing for them and they all ended up with c-sections. I suppose this is a reason why I am totally ok with you staying inside me as long as you want and coming out when you are ready vs when someone tells me you are or should be ready. Hopefully if I can hold of for that things will progress as they should!

THIS WEEK'S GETTING READY FOR BABY FINISHED HOMEWORK: I finished the wreath I made for the hospital, so cute! I threw a few more things in my hospital pile. Yup, it's turned into a hospital pile instead of a bag. I have pretty much decided I probably wont be packing that bag until it's go time.
NEXT WEEK'S GETTING READY FOR BABY HOMEWORK: Enjoy my, hopefully, last week/weekend as a twosome with your daddy!

  1. WOW - 39 weeks!! I hope your next post is a welcome baby girl post! All of my friends said they didn't get stretch marks until the end either... something about the last growth spurt, baby dropping, etc. GOOD LUCK!!!! I'm so excited for you to meet her. :)
