38 Weeks

38 Weeks


Total Weight Gain: 25 lbs.

Wedding Rings On or Off?  With the heat we've had this week, my rings have gotten a little tight at times!  However, they are staying on.

Stretch Marks? Not at all, which makes me feel much more comfortable wearing a bikini this far into my pregnancy.

Sleep?  I'm still managing a decent amount of sleep, but I feel like I'm tossing & turning constantly.

Best Moment This Week:  This week was incredible and just what I needed before Liam arrives.  I had my maternity photos taken by my friend & talented photographer, Haley!  This was such a fun experience and her photos are something that I am sure to always treasure.  Here's the link to her blog post again, in case you missed it:

Also this week, Conor took some time off of work for a mini vacation to Spirit Lake for some 4th of July activities!  We are typically so rushed for time when we visit family, so it was nice to have 5 relaxing days at the lake!

Miss Anything?  With all the party-boating & "booze-cruises" the past few days, I've really missed the "booze" part of the cruise!

Movement?  Still moving like crazy, but less kicking and more wiggling...it must be getting cramped in there!

Food Cravings:  Maple bars from the grocery store in Spirit Lake...I can't get enough!  The blueberry cake doughnuts are also delectable!  I've also had a hankering for s'mores so we had a bonfire a couple nights so I could get my fix.

Food Aversions:  Not this week, I just love my mom's cooking! She asked for dinner ideas before we arrived and she made everything I suggested! She is the best!

Symptoms:  I've started to have more contractions this week!  Doctor thinks I'll start to progress here soon... We are anxious for our next appointment to see what she says.

Staying Active?  Conor was on vacation this week, and apparently I was too!  I had a pretty lazy week except for all the stairs I got in walking from my parents cabin to the dock & back! :-)  We did however get in a 4 mile walk, which I'm proud of doing this far along into my pregnancy!

Belly Button: I'm sticking with half in, half out.

Happy or Moody? I am one happy girl!  I'm a bit emotional at times, but only because I'm flooded with happy emotions as Liam's due date approaches.  I have found myself being more calm & patient as the day gets closer.

Nursery Progress:  Liam received quite a few gifts this week!  Another book, Where Will the Animals Stay?, was added to his collection.  He is also the proud owner of an American flag onesie...God bless America!  My parents also surprised us with the most adorable "coming home" outfit!  I can't wait to get it washed and in the diaper bag!  Perhaps, I will finally get around to doing a nursery post this week

Looking Forward To:  Conor & my 2nd anniversary!  I can't wait to celebrate two years with my loving husband while enjoying possibly our last date night before Liam's arrival!  Also, this coming week I plan on trying just about everything & anything to bring Liam into the world a little sooner...  Stay tuned!
