39 weeks

How Far Along? 39 weeks....6 days till due date. I'm due on Sunday! OMFG!

Maternity Clothes? Everything is just majorly uncomfortable since about Friday now. My belly is really tight and hard and irritated by anything touching it.

Stretch Marks? No. I beat this nasty beast!

Sleep: Too many pee breaks are making me tired! Woke up this morning at 4:30am...couldn't fall back asleep. Finally got up at 6 and walked the dog, in the snowy yucky weather. He was not pleased, but I was bored and had to do something productive!

Best Moment of the Week? I can't think of anything super wonderful that happened this week! Sad I know!

Less. Painful jabs and tummy tightening.

Food Cravings? nope

Gender? GIRL

What I miss? My stomach not being in pain. It keeps tightening and it actually takes my breath away. Feels like my lungs are tightening up. Not sure if these are Braxton Hicks contractions or real contractions or something totally different. But they hurt.

What I'm looking forward to? Mat leave starts in 4 days! And birth of the baby! eek!

Weekly Wisdom: D-day seems so far away and then it creeps right up on you! I'm so scared!

Milestones: ?

Emotions: I'm scared. I'm scared of change. I'm scared of my life changing and having no "me" time. I'm scared I won't want to be around my baby 100% of the time like all of the other moms I read about! What if I can't handle being a mom! What if I don't get that amazing love feeling all new moms talk about? I feel so guilty admitting this but it's true.

Hope you all have a great week. And wish me luck making it through my last week of work (hoping this babe doesn't decide to come out early...I must work the rest of the week!)



  1. Listen, you are going to do great. Your fears are totally normal and you shouldn't feel bad for expressing them. Just do your best to relax (as if that's possible at this point I'm sure) and remember all the fears you probably had about being pregnant before it actually happened. You rocked that and I'm sure motherhood will be no different.

    OMG - 6 days. :)

  2. Manymanymoons is so right. You should never feel guilty about talking about things that scare you or annoy you - it's all part of the experience. It shows that you're engaged - the way a good Mum should be!! So, so excited for you!

  3. Oh my gosh...your next post could be the post where you announce your baby!! EEEEKKK!!!

    Quick question... Since you have such a small frame are you concerned you might have to do a c-section?

  4. Sooooo excited for you LTB! Ahhh! Any day now!

  5. the final countdown. wishing you ALL THE BEST and keeping fingers and toes crossed for you :o) xoxo.

  6. 6 days!!! Awesome, girl! So excited for you.

  7. It's almost time! My Braxton hicks were like that and my contractions felt like bad cramps coupled with the need to poop, lol.

    And I was scared too about the no couple time change. And no me time. But you'll find ways to make it happen. And you won't be bad parents for it.

  8. O.M.G! It's soooo close to time! I cannot wait for the "BABY IS HERE!" post! It's coming soooo soon!

  9. OMG, 6 more days?!? I seriously can't wait to hear your announcement when she arrives!! So excited for you LTB!!

  10. Holy Crap!!! You made it!!! :) Don't worry Im sure once you see your baby's face and hold her, all those doubts will melt away! :) Good luck! Cant wait to see pics!

  11. Oh my! You're getting so, so, so close! I hope everything goes super smoothly and your beautiful baby is in your arms soon! Can't wait to hear all about how the big day happens!

  12. Oh my gosh, any freaking day now!!! Awesome-ness. And I agree with your PPs....these fears/anxieties sounds totally normal. You will work through them!! Hang in on the final countdown!! xo

  13. Wow - what a mix of emotions - excitement and fear of the unknown. Don't worry, I know we probably ALL have those thoughts cross our mind.

    I've wondered if I'm going to be a good mom, if I'll be interested enough in my own child to take care of him/her or if DH will be the better parent. I just don't know how I'll react so I keep telling myself I'll find out when I find out!

  14. OMG, I can't believe how close you are! So exciting! And yay for only two more days of work!!

    I'm scared of all of the same things, too. I know you will be a great mom.
