PREGNANCY | 39 Weeks!

Ahhh! I cannot believe I have one week left until my due date! I honestly feel like I just found out I was pregnant. The baby can come at any time now so I've been feeling a whole mess of different emotions. I'm excited, anxious, scared, happy...its all going to be such a huge change.

I had a doctors appointment yesterday and when she measured my belly all she could say was wow, that's already a big baby! She guesses the baby is already passed the 8 pound mark! I think I have a little monster growing inside of me.

I already knew from previous visits that the baby was pretty big and they don't have much room in my stomach so I thought for sure I would go into labour a little earlier than my due date. Unfortunately, she checked my cervix yesterday and told me I wasn't even close. It hasn't dropped, thinned, dilated, nothing!

Although I googled it yesterday and there are tons of women who went to the doctor one day with absolutely no sign of going into labour and then the next day they drop and have the baby a few hours later. So I guess you can never really tell. Babies will come when they're ready.

Sleeping has gotten a tiny bit better. I found out sleeping at the opposite end of the bed feels more comfortable for some reason. Who knows? So instead of waking up every hour during the night, I am now usually only waking up twice just to pee.

Hmm what else can I update you on?

My feet are HUGE!! Ugh. I'm so lucky its warmer here now because flip flops are the only comfortable thing I can wear. They are swelling so much. It looks really funny but it can be super uncomfortable. I've almost busted out the back of the only shoes that were fitting me recently so I need to buy a new pair asap once this baby is born!

I think that's just about it! Hopefully my next update will be a post introducing you guys to the baby :)  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
