Weeks 36-39

Well, I am not yet done with week 39 but I thought I would go ahead and do an update on the last few weeks of my pregnancy. I am hoping there won't be a 40 week update, but we will see. He seems to be quite cozy in there. :)

I cannot believe we are at the end of this journey. I am so ready to start the next chapter with him in our arms but I really have truly enjoyed being pregnant. I had a wonderful experience and other than the acne, a few months of Charlie horses, and some recent heartburn....I have had no problems. I never got sick, and just recently felt like I was super uncomfortable. And I think that may have more to do with this HEAT than anything. I am always hot!

On one hand I feel like this pregnancy has gone by so fast, but on the other hand I feel like I've been pregnant forever. I'm sure anyone who is or has been pregnant feels the same way. It is so surreal that in a few short days we will be holding him in our arms. I cannot wait. I have wanted to be a mama since I can remember. I can't wait to love on that boy and see the bond Ty has with him. It makes my heart melt just thinking about it.

Week 38: 19.6 inches, 6.8 lbs, baby is the size of a leek
Week 39: 20 inches, 7.3 lbs, baby is the size of a small watermelon

Maternity Clothes:
All I can say is I feel SO lucky that I've had the summer off during the last weeks of my pregnancy. I cannot imagine having to get dressed for work everyday. To all you mamas who work up until you have the baby - you ROCK!!!! Especially in this heat, I am so thankful that my wardrobe right now mostly consists of nike shorts (that are way too tight at this point) and Ty's tshirts. :)

Boy!!! And we are seriously running out of time with this name situation. Oh my, I don't know how we are going to decide. I thought we had made a decision a few weeks ago but Ty keeps changing his mind. Now we are back to the drawing board searching every name website EVER. And we've totally already looked at them 10 times already. Ty really wants a one syllable name so if you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments - but we've probably heard them all..ha!

He is still as active as ever. Yes, his movements have changed and I know he is running out of room but that isn't stopping him from kicking mama and moving all around. :) Sometimes I feel him all the way on my side near my back! I think he is going to be tall like his daddy!

I'm sorry, what is that? It's not happening much around here. I had some serious heartburn creep in during week 38 but Ty went and got me some Tums one night so that problem is under control now. One night it was so bad I sat in the recliner at 4am for about an hour and it still wouldn't stop even though I was sitting up!!! I feel like my mind is always racing and I am always flipping from side to side so I am not getting much sleep. I think that is God's way of preparing me to be up all night soon. :)

What I miss:
Sleeping on my stomach and wine. For our anniversary the other night we went to this yummy Italian restaurant and we sat in their wine bar area. I was surrounded by yummy wine and it was torture. Someone bring me some wine in my hospital room. k thanks.
