37 Weeks (Bump #2)


Total Weight Gain: 36 lbs.

Symptoms: Still having plenty of Braxton Hicks.

Food Cravings/Aversions:  All the breakfast & fruit I can handle!

Staying Active?  Yes, I had quite the active week!  Probably the most so since I stopped running.  I had one decent hike with Liam and a couple of walks.  Now that he has his bike, we are constantly on the move.  Also made it the pool for my 1 mile swim once!

Cries: A bit emotional.  I'm starting to stress about my mom not being here when I go into labor, and it makes me incredibly sad that she doesn't live closer.  Hopefully we timed her flights right; we shall see...

Nursery Progress:  Finished!  Although I may add a small gallery wall after Finn is born.  I think I'll wait to share all the pictures & details until I have my maternity photos back from our photographer.  So next week sometime!

Best Moment This Week:  Maternity photos (the sneak peeks have been stunning)!  And another meeting with my doula.  I am feeling stronger than ever and so ready for this birth!

Other News:  
Conor is going on a business trip to the east coast just days before I'll be 38 weeks pregnant!  A little bit scary, but we think baby Finn will be staying put for awhile.

  2. Oh my gosh you are almost there! I had Noah at 36 weeks 4 days so whenever I see 37 weeks I think babies have to come any day ;). When in reality most people have weeks left! Looking good as usual!

  4. Looking great mama! I'm a bit sad my mom can't be here for delivery as well but think her helping hand will come in much better once my husband goes back to work. Hopefully Connor won't be gone too long on his trip! I'm sure Finn will be staying put :)

    1. Thanks! It feels so good to still be active and not having slowed down. I mostly do it for Liam! I love being able to still keep up with him and do everything I was doing before I was pregnant!

    Jim is going to be gone on a week long business trip right at 36/37 weeks for me too. Nerve wracking for sure!

  11. Lookin' good, momma!! I love your white shirt against that red wall. :) Getting so close..!! I went through the same feelings, stressing about my mom not being there/available, that's tough when so much is out of your control. I'll be praying that it falls into place and all works out that she can be there for you during this exciting time!! Can't wait to see more of your maternity pics!! :)

  13. Conor's going on a business trip soon?!?! Tell me it's not too far?! Or that your mom is coming to stay with you?! You guys are brave! I barely let Seth get below the 1/4 tank mark on his gas tank in his car let alone let him go on a trip before Mason was born! lol

  14. Okay mama. Question. Is it weird that I'm not having Braxton Hicks still? Or if I am I just don't realize it?! I really think Nancy just wants to stay put for a while. And that's fine with me! But you know I look up to you, so I had to ask!!!!! :)

  17. You're getting so close now!! How exciting! I'm sure baby Finn knows when daddy will be home and will stay put until then!
