Baby #2: 39 Weeks and Still Here!

I’m here, but playing the waiting game at this point.  Trying to take it really easy (not a problem).  Here I am at 38 weeks.


Symptoms: cramping, difficulty sleeping and stuffiness.  Nausea sometimes.   Back pain while walking – just feeling huge!

Weekly highlights: got my hair and nails done (whoop!).  Amazing how a little boost helps you feel better about yourself, especially when SUPER preggo. 

Food Cravings/Aversions: sweet things leave a gross taste in my mouth and I’m definitely eating more meat than when not pregnant.  Generally food is meh… lots of eggs, yogurt and La Croix basically.

Wishing: we had a name settled and that she will be a good sleeper; too much to ask?!

Wanting: to do a “real” work out, all the Betty Designs gear (obsessed lately), a glass of wine or a margarita! 


Activities:  Most days I start with a short workout and try to get some walking in, but by the afternoon it’s a nap and sitting around.  Not my preference, but once I’m on my feet for a long period I get tired.  I did do a few marathon cooking sessions – freezer foods + baked goods for our new neighbors.  Other than that, rest!  Nathan is 2.5 years and is a lot of fun, I wish I could keep up with him just a little more.  He’s doing swim class on Saturday mornings now.

Loving: A little extra time with Nathan; we took a mom & son visit to Blake Gardens a couple days ago.  Since I’ve had pre-partum leave we’ve had a lot more time together to do fun things like go to the farm, walks, etc.

Maybe next post will be an introduction to our little lady!

  1. so exciting to make it to 39 weeks! I bet the days are going by fast and slow at the same time =) I am only 29 weeks but I am already having trouble keeping up with my little guy. I can’t imagine right now what 39 weeks will feel like.
