39 Weeks [Round Two]

39 weeks and 2 days.
Hopefully this will be my last pregnancy update,
but who really knows? This baby is on their own schedule!
It’s hard for me to believe that we’re still five days away from our due date.
I feel like I have been pregnant for…ev…er.
It doesn’t help that I had convinced myself that I was further along this entire time.
This baby sure showed me!

Our bags are packed and ready to go.
I made a point to pack significantly less this time. Two small bags, max.
After we’re back and settled, I’ll share what I used/didn’t use/wish I would have brought.
Here is a peek at the coming home outfits we’re bringing.


I have had a random burst of energy the last day or so, getting things done around the house.
This includes making thin mint puppy chow to satisfy my intense craving for sweets.
And why stop there? We also made chex mix!

Waiting for baby + major sweets cravings = thin mint puppy chow. #39weeks


I have been 1 cm for the past two and a half weeks which is less than exciting.
Braxton Hicks contractions are strong and frequent, but regular contractions are sporadic.
My feet have been SO swollen the last week and I can only wear flip flops.
If the intense groin pain I’m having is any indication of labor, then I’d say I’ll deliver soon,
but I don’t think that’s the case. Other signs of labor are nonexistent.


Here are a few tidbits of our pregnancy journey.

What I could have not lived without:

Peanut butter
Sparkling water
Decaf coffee
Coconut oil
Lots of pillows
Tervis Tumbler water bottle

What I will not miss:

Maternity clothes
Groin and pelvic pain
Gaining weight
Frequent trips to the bathroom

What I will miss:

Feeling this squirmy baby inside of me
I hope this is something I will never forget

What I am looking forward to:

Having a beer
Sleeping flat on my back
Being able to see my feet
Losing weight
Wearing my wedding rings
Being able to get out of bed with little to no effort
Trying hot yoga


And most importantly, holding this baby in our arms!
