One of our last little pictures as a family of three!
I am the worst at tracking how I've felt during pregnancy, but I did want to stop and take in where I'm at right now, just in case we decide to get pregnant again I will remember what I'll be dealing with:).

How far along: 39-weeks.
(ie 7 days until d-day. Single digits. OMG.)

Baby Size: I had to google this.
7 pounds and the size of a leek. A leek? Really? Or a mini-watermelon.

Weight gain: 29.4 pounds! Almost right on with what I gained with Coop, which was 30.

Maternity clothes: I live in shorts and sleeveless tank. 

Stretch marks: Oh yeah. Had them the last pregnancy and the buckets of shea butter can only do so much. I know how this goes. They are stretched so far when you're fat that you barely see them, and then when baby comes out and your skin re-settles it looks like you were scratched down the belly by a witch wearing purple nail polish. #sexytime

Sleep: What's that? I don't sleep. I'm either peeing or being karate kicked in the pelvis.

Gender: Another sweet baby boy.

Movement: He does the wave, pokes and prods. I feel feet, elbows, knees and butts very distinctly.

Best moment this week: Cooper is obsessed with me lately, and giving me a baby lots of kisses. And I love it.

Looking forward to: Sleep! I will sleep more when the baby arrives. I know it. Oh, and the baby. Can't wait to meet the baby.

Food cravings: Juice! I dream of juice! I still don't like to eat very much. I'm very thirsty. I like peanut butter too.

Anything making you queasy or sick: The no sleep thing. Makes me sick!

Labor Signs: Actually yes! Tons of crampiness, Braxton Hicks, and strong pressure down yonder where the leg joints meet the hip.

What I miss: Sleep. Do you see a theme here? And martinis!

Symptoms: I am physically so darn tired all the time! It's actually unbelievable. 
Nursery: Is mostly done and is a very sweet room. I took Coop's old nursery, and just added a new bedding and rug. Nothing crazy.
Belly Button in or out? Unsure. It's pretty flat most the time but with shirts on looks like an outie.

Wedding rings on or off? On. I haven't swelled with either pregnancy. Other than the fat face that happens right

Mood: Tired!

Haha, okay but really, I'm very grateful and excited to meet this other little angel boy. I'm thankful for my husband and son. I can be a little snappy with the Coop-man, but I try to control myself (I mean, can you stop saying "mom,mom,mom,mom" with a rising volume for one second please? ONE SECOND!)

We can't wait to share with you pictures of Number Two!


  1. Lol at the "mom, mom, mom," comment. Lily doesn't understand patience either ;) hope for a happy, healthy labor and delivery!!! So exciting!
