39 Week Bump Update!

Well, here we are!! SO close to the end and I can hardly believe it.
Here's a THIRTY-NINE week bump update!

How far along are you?
39 weeks! And anxiously awaiting the babe's arrival!

Size of baby?
A watermelon... and it certainly feels that way too. I get winded walking up and down the stairs, trying to put on pants, and basically doing anything that requires me to move. ;)

Just about DONE! All I need is a white nightstand (which I will probably order online) and to hang the rest of the wall decor... I need to find an hour or two to knock it out, and we can call it "officially" complete!

Looking forward to?
The sweet baby's arrival. It's about the only thing on my mind these days!

Maternity clothes?
Oh, yes. To be honest, my belly has gotten so big that the majority of my maternity clothes are getting a little too short around the bottom of my belly. I've resolved that with only a week left I will not buy any more clothes, but I really am struggling. I have been rotating the same 3 outfits for the last 2 weeks, ha.

Oh man, the burn... I had unbearable heartburn for 3-4 days, and I felt like I was going to die. Seriously, I had to compose myself a few times to make sure I didn't throw up - it was bad!! Thankfully it has gone away, and I hope it never comes back (I will never eat supreme pizza again... just kidding, I probably will - just not for the remainder of this pregnancy).

Actually, my sleep isn't too bad. I wake up 2-3 times to use the restroom, but that is a HUGE improvement from the hourly routine I was on before. Although I am not getting up as much, I am a total zombie between 4-5AM and cannot fall asleep.

Full force!! I've realized that I cannot get everything done on my list by myself (while staying sane...), so we hired someone to clean our carpets and clean our window last week (oh my goodness - I will be doing this at least yearly) and we hired someone to clean our house yesterday. It was the first time having ever paid for a house cleaner, and it was pretty fabulous. Two ladies were here for a total of 3 hours and I can't even believe how much they accomplished - baseboards, blinds, fans - yes, yes, yes!

We've had a little issue with Scout digging under our fence, and John was able to install an electric fence this weekend (which was a huge check on "my" nesting to-do list) - that man has worked so much lately, and I am so thankful for him.

All of the other things on my list can be done once the baby arrives... replace burned out light bulbs, change air filters, trim bushes, etc... so if these things don't get done, I really can't complain too much!

Missing most?
I miss not totally struggling putting on pants, reaching my toes, and I miss standing up easily after laying down... my belly is just getting so big that it is in the way and I am constantly forgetting how large it is when walking through doors, turning around, etc.

It is kind of funny and kind of just ridiculous how much stuff I keep bumping with my bump! I know pregnancy is to be celebrated and losing the baby weight takes time, but I am certainly looking forward to losing some of this weight (just being honest!).

Left to do?
Honestly, nothing really! There are still a few house things that I would love done, but as far as the baby goes, we really are able to relax.

All of the baby gear is assembled, registered and put away. I've purchased all of the postpartum must-haves, we have loads of toilet paper, paper plates, plastic silverware... my nails and toes are painted and I have a fresh set of highlights! The car seat is installed and my hospital bag is in the trunk of my car.

And now, we wait... we are ready for you sweet baby!

  1. Yay!! You look amazing! And I hear ya about the belly bumping! When I was pregnant with Griffin, I would always hit my big belly on the corner of Hadley's crib-without fail. I walked around with a big bruise on my stomach for weeks because I just kept hitting it. I can't wait to hear that your sweet boy has arrived!

  2. You are SO close! It could be any day now!

  9. SO exciting!! The babe will be here before you know it! I've always said I would never hire cleaners because I am stubborn and can do it myself but I totally think this is a perfect timing to hire them. I hope your final week is exciting and memorable and can not wait for the announcement of your new baby!

  11. Come on baby boy, I'm so ready to "meet" you!!! Where did you get that dress lady?!

  12. oh the heartburn. Mine has been awful awful awful. Keeps me up at night. With Aria the tums easily took care of it but not this time. I finally got some papaya enzymes recommended by another momma. Literally just came today, so good grief I hope they work better.
    It's so crazy to have that any moment now feeling. I never got there with Aria, so I feel like a ticking time bomb now that I've just gotten past the day in my pregnancy Aria was born.

  13. Still looking amazing, mama! I can't believe he's going to be here so soon!! Praying for a safe and healthy delivery when he's ready to come!!
