Week 39- Final Bumpdate before baby



How far along? 39 weeks

Baby Size: As big as a Pumpkin!

 Total weight gain: 58 lbs :(
Maternity clothes?  Yes, along with bits and pieces of my regular clothes- the stretchy stuff and the longer tops.

Stretch marks?  Yes, I have about 5 on my left thigh bone and 3 or so on the far right side of my belly.  I also spotted a few over my belly button this past week.  I was doing so good keeping them away for most of this pregnancy and they just started to pop up these past few weeks.  #depressing
 Sleep:  Ha! What's that?!?  Pretty much nonexistent at this point.

Best moment this week:  Sunday's are the first day of my preggo weeks so for all the previous bumpdates I waited until the end of that week (Saturday) to post the update for that week.  Since this is the final week, I decided to go ahead and post the update on the start of the week since- Lord willing my best moment this week will be safely delivering my baby boy tomorrow and finally meeting him face to face!

Movement: Space is limited! I feel it all.

Food cravings: Sweets.
  
Gender: It's a BOY!
Looking forward to:  Asher's birthday tomorrow!

38 Weeks


How far along? 38 weeks

Baby Size: As big as a Winter Melon!

Total weight gain: 54 lbs :(
Maternity clothes?  Yes, along with bits and pieces of my regular clothes

Stretch marks?  Yes, I spotted a few more on the top of my thigh bone and 2 on the far right side of my belly.  Good thing we only have one more week to go.
 Sleep:  Ha! What's that?!?  Pretty much nonexistent at this point.

Best moment this week: Finally, hubby started working in the yard which I have been bugging him about for weeks.  The weeds in the backyard were so overgrown they looked like small trees!  It is my final work week before baby even though I am currently working from home and also we had our final doctor appointment before baby!

Movement: Space is limited! I feel it all.

Food cravings: Sweets.
  
Gender: It's a BOY!
Looking forward to: Meeting Asher at 39 weeks 1 day AKA May 2nd :) It is coming so soon! Also, sleeping comfortably and losing all this weight.

Dear Asher


Week 38 Bump
Before we officially meet soon, I want to take a moment to document just how very special you are and how much you mean to me.

You are by far my greatest accomplishment.  My blessing.  My miracle.  I thank God for you everyday for choosing us to be your parents and choosing me to be your mother.

I can't wait to pick you up when you fall.  To support you in all your dreams and goals.  To raise you up as a young man of God.  To watch your father be the best dad to you- I know he is going to be awesome and you are going to look up to him.

I am excited to be a boy mom.  To play sports with you.  Build things with you. Help you with your homework.  Watch you as an athlete.  I am excited to enjoy the moments raising you and watching you grow.

I have waited so long for you.  A child of my very own.  A son.  You have made my dreams of being a mother come true and you will always hold a special place in my heart for that.  I can't wait to see your precious face.  To get to know your little personality.  To kiss the chunky cheeks I have a feeling you will have :)

I can't wait to meet you and be your mommy.  I hope I am everything you could ever hope for and that I don't let you down.

See you soon when you come to meet us here in the world.  I am just about ready to serve you with eviction papers kid. 

Love you more than you will ever know,

Your mom

37 Weeks

How far along? 37 weeks

Baby Size: As big as a head of romaine lettuce!

Total weight gain: 51 lbs :(
Maternity clothes?  Yes, along with most of my regular clothes

Stretch marks?  Yes, I spotted a few on the top of my thigh bone a few weeks ago and 2 on the far right side of my belly. A few I can deal with, so I am keeping hope alive that things won't get too crazy from here.

Sleep:  Ha! What's that?!?  Pretty much nonexistent at this point.

Best moment this week: Finalized our decision on a pediatrician, had our weekly check up with Dr. Harn, attended a car seat safety course, and just winding down before baby makes his entrance.

Movement: I think he wants out.  He has been on the move!

Food cravings: Sweets.
  
Gender: It's a BOY!
Looking forward to: Meeting the little one in 2 weeks or less!
