39 Weeks (Bump #2)

Dress: Stitch Fix

Total Weight Gain: 38 lbs.

Symptoms: For the first time in both of my pregnancies, I'm starting to experience a bit of sciatic nerve pain.  Coupled with some back pain, I'm definitely feeling more & more uncomfortable.   Still in no rush for baby to get here though.

Labor Signs: There have been some subtle signs that labor may be starting soon.  No weight gain this week, baby's heart rate has increased, & my blood pressure is slowly going up.  Absolutely no contractions though, just plenty of Braxton Hicks!  I truly think my body is waiting until my mom is here!

Nursery: Finished!  See all the details here!

Food Cravings/Aversions:  Sweets.  I'm back on a huge sweets kick.  Chocolate & maple bars mostly!

Staying Active?  Oh yes!  Four days this week Liam & I hiked or took long walks!  In the evenings, I can definitely feel how hard I worked during the day.

Cries: Happy mama again!

Worries/Concerns:  I've gone from being very baby focused over the last couple weeks, to more Liam focused.  I have never been away from him for a night, so I'm starting to stress about the possibility that that may happen.  He still very much needs his mama at night!

Looking Forward To:  My mom arriving on Thursday!  Then we can have this baby!  We also might try to sneak in two date nights this week!

  2. Wow... It's almost here! I can totally understand why you want to wait for your mom to be here! And being worried about leaving Liam for a night. I think that would be my biggest concern too. Sorry you are experiencing sciatic pain, but at least it won't be for long! I started getting it halfway through my pregnancy and it was brutal!

  3. I've never left our daughter overnight either...I've been there for bedtime almost every night for the last two years! I'm worried about this as well. I'll hit 30 weeks on Sunday and it's all getting more real.

  4. That dress- you look awesome. You should wear that every day until he arrives-- get as many wears as possible since it's days are numbered!! Crossing my fingers that Finn waits until at least friday to arrive---I know how much we need our mamas! Enjoy the week and totally soak up all of your Liam time!

    1. My wardrobe options are limited these days, so I'm may just be living in this dress! At least when I want to look a bit more put together!

  7. It would be hard to leave Aria for me too. She only wants mama at night and mama doesn't mind in the least. Thankfully it isn't for a terribly extended period of time!
    Bummer about the sciatic pain. I can't believe it is almost time!!

  12. Getting soo close!! You look adorable and I'm sorry about the pains...no fun. I had never left Wyatt when I had Stella, I was super nervous. He did great though and I think he enjoyed having his Mimi to himself. Ha! ;)

  13. You wear pregnancy so well girlfriend! I'm hoping for a quick and easy labor/delivery for you and baby boy! One of my biggest concerns was leaving Lily at night. It all worked out just fine though. We talked to her several times about what would happen when it was time to have the baby, just in case. So very excited for you!! Anytime now...well, after Thursday, of course ;)

  17. Oh, I know the wait for mom thing! I went the night she got here. Being away was harder on me than him (that first night) as he had his nana (that he adores). You will do great!
