I have several weeks of updating to do! We’ve been pretty busy around here the last 6 weeks or so trying to get everything in order before baby decides to come. Our biggest project was getting Noah’s big boy room all put together, I’ll do a post on that later!
No “bump” photo here
We did celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary this week and had some quality time working on some fun projects
We had our family/maternity pictures taken this week!
Week 35 and 36
No pictures here…must have forgot!
I do know i’d been feeling the nesting urge quite and bit and was feeling really unprepared for baby- No clothes washed, no baby stuff had been gone through, and nothing had been bought (not that I needed much anyways). We finished Noah’s big boy bed somewhere around week 36 and so I was able to clean out the nursery and start getting some things organized. I felt so much better after!
On a not so good memory–I was out taking some family pictures for a friend and came into contact with some nasty poison ivy. I’ve never had it before, and it took about a week to show up. It is awful! I would never want it but having it at 9 months pregnant made it even more miserable. I had (and still dealing with it some 2 weeks later) a fairly severe case of it. Mostly due to the fact it was my first exposure and my body just can’t fight it off as easily right now. Each day it seems to be getting better now and I’m so thankful this little boy didn’t decide to come to early. I DID NOT want to deal with a nasty rash and a newborn!
Left: 37 weeks baby #2
Right: 37 weeks Baby #1-the night before I went into labor
At 37 weeks I was just starting to dilate had a soft cervix and 80% effaced. I have Braxton hicks contractions that are starting to come more often than before but nothing significant and overall feeling pretty good!
Well I have officially made it longer than I did with Noah!
My belly seems SO much bigger this week than last. It feels ginormous.
My poison ivy still looks awful but is healing and feeling much better- Feeling ready for baby to come out!
My 38 week appt went well. I was 90% effaced and baby was very low, however I am not dilated much at all (maybe not even a 1). I still think anything can happen at any time, but trying to prepare myself that he may just be pretty cozy and not ready to come out.
