Bumpin' It Up || Week 39


Grace has taken to wanting to always be in my bump pictures (which I love!!) even when she has a mouth full of chicken ;)
OUTFIT: Pinkblush Maternity

39 WEEKS ||

Due Date | March 21st, 2015    ||    Induction Date: March 20, 2015

Gender BOY! :)

Name | It's a secret.

Size | He was estimated at 7 lbs 6 oz at our appointment on two weeks ago and measuring a week or so ahead. So by that I would assume he is close to 8 lbs right now. But who knows, they said Grace would be a good 8 pounder and she came out barely 7. 

Feeling | BEYOND exhausted. The time change really screwed us up and my already no sleep turned in to even less sleep. There was a lot of lounging about and watching movies during the mornings/ early afternoons this week. 

Hormones | I am a different emotion I think every few hours, ha! I feel like I am feeling EVERY feeling! It's been fun...

Body | The itching has gotten a LOT worse and I am now in full blown PUPPP. It's a joy and the only thing that cures it? Delivery. I had it with Gracie and it was mostly on my belly, this time around it's EVERYWHERE. My poor poor legs and arms. 

Contractions. All the time, every time. Had another night of horrendous back labor that we thought was IT alllll for the contractions to up and stop AGAIN. It's exhausting. 

Sleep | HAHAHAH. 

Nursery | Completed! I gave a sneak peek yesterday and I can't wait to show you guys the whole room. But because we are keeping his name a secret and we have family flying in early, we can't put his name above his crib yet. So when that's done, I will show the pictures of his room! I like it. It's decorated but not OVERLY decorated. Very clean. 

Missing | Sleep and really missing family. 

Best Moment of The Week | Savoring the last moments with just Gracie and I. Even though we have been lazy bums this week, every now and again I would look over at her and just snuggle her. I know I will love having little dude around (obviously) but I know I will miss me and Gracie. Ya know? We are a team she and I!  So I am REALLY trying to soak her in as much as I can. 

Fun Fact(s) | 
** On Sunday morning at 1:43 am & every moment after that--I will be the most pregnant I have ever been. (Grace was born at 1:42 am at 39 +1.)

**This will be my last bump date. This time next week I will have my new baby boy! That is just insane to think about. 

Thanks for being on this journey with me ya'll! I have loved that I kept up with this and that I have a record for little dude that I didn't keep with Gracie. I am so grateful for that! 

Please keep my family and I in your prayers this next week! It's our last week as a family of three and we welcome little dude in just 6 days. It's going to be crazy, and it's going to be amazing and I can't WAIT!
