38 weeks

So here I am these days…Check out that belly, kaboom! I definitely look like I swallowed a watermellon :) I love looking at other pregnant mamas and how everyone carries so differently. I definitely have some good genes on my side. Being tall with a long torso works to your advantage in these circumstances. I’m definitely feeling “ready” for the pregnancy part to be over with soon. Getting comfortable at night is super challenging and I don’t have much of an appetite. Which is due to the fact that my stomach is the size of an egg at this point :)

Nesting is in the critical stages right now. On Tuesday Violet, my friend Becca and I did a huge drop off at our neighborhood Goodwill and then to Costco during a crazy rainstorm! It was comical at times watching us load and unload the car with my borderline hoarder amount of food and the likes. I seriously don’t know what comes over me at that store sometimes. I become my own worst nightmare! Grabbing things left and right like it’s the end of the world. I’m going to blame my hormones this time around :) Anyway, we survived and now we’re fully stocked on household essentials for a while.

I had my last ultrasound yesterday and everything is looking great! He’s head down and approximately 7 pounds, 5 ounces. Which puts him at the same weight as Violet was at this point. My doctor thinks he’ll be about the same weight as Violet at birth, maybe slightly bigger(Violet was 7 pounds 14 ounces). Last Friday, all day I had Braxton Hicks contractions which was exactly what happened at 37 weeks with Violet. I’m 1 cm plus a little more dilated thanks to those contractions but as I learned last time, this means nothing. Other then i’ll have a baby sometime in the next 2-3 weeks of course. So that’s the scoop around here.

NYC kids are back in school now and the air has a crisp fall feel these days. Fall is really coming.  Oh yeah, and today I turned 29 years old. Crazy. Have a great weekend everyone!

    Happy Birthday! You are a darling pregnant.

  2. I love that belly. Those crazy girls at the playground don’t know what they’re talking about. I could only wish to look that good at the end of a pregnancy.
