Baby K – Weeks 39-40

Yes the post is early this week since TODAY marks 40 weeks!!

Funny story about my due date, I originally dated myself at November 10th, but the dating ultrasound said November 6th or so I was told. Yesterday at my Dr appointment we realized it was put into the notes wrong and my due date is actually the 7th, so today! Not that one day makes a difference but found it funny.

What is Baby K up to?  Well she can make her appearance any day now! Baby is fully cooked and developed Smile She definitely has a busy time of the day, 7-9pm, so it will be interesting to see if she is fussy or busy during that time when she comes out.

How I am doing? Really good. I say really since I hear so many people at this point who are just done, they are not comfortable and just want baby out. While I do want baby out I cannot complain. Yes, I can get uncomfortable but in the bigger scheme of things I feel really good.

Labour Symptoms? Well this is going to be TMI but here it goes… I lost what I think was my mucus plus last Friday morning, but that can still mean labour is weeks away. This happened two days after I had a membrane sweep done which is common, I had a second sweep done yesterday as well. I  had not had any contractions and only minor cramping (mainly at night) and a little low back pain until after sweep number 2 last night which made me feel like crap. Chad was like “maybe this is it?”, must have been motherly instincts because I said nope and sure enough woke up this morning as good as new.

Weight gain? I stopped weighing myself and am assuming I have topped out around 17-18lbs.

Workouts: As you’ve seen from Workout Wednesday yesterday pretty good. I miss yoga, last two classes I could not make it due to Dr appointments.

Movement: A couple days little girl scared me but moving quite a bit less, but then I realized she is very tight for space in there. I can make her move if needed most times of the day then like I said she is busy from 7-9pm still.

Sleep: Pretty good, still in bed about 8-9 hours a night waking up every 2-3 hours to pee.

Stretch marks? No change, yay!

Miss Anything?  Being able to lay on my tummy and put on boots!

Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week:  I love people’s responses and expressions when they ask when I am due now. So funny! People have been really kind to me and always tell me how “cute” I look Smile Chad’s friend’s have even told me how great I look so I am happy gal with all the nice comments.

Baby Items Purchased: Breast pump parts – exciting, right?

Nursery Update: You already saw the reveal!

Looking Forward To: Meeting this little girl!


Since there are a couple feet of snow outside and I wanted to get a daylight photo these were taken with my self timer. I looked like a convict in a couple of them so this one was a good as it gets.


And because I think a 40 week post deserve a bare belly shot, from this morning’s workout, excuse the no makeup, messy hair look Smile
