38 & 39 Week #Pregnancy Update



Baby is about 18.9 to 20.9 inches long and weighs about 6.2 to 9.2 pounds. Her head is now about the same circumference as her abdomen. She may have about an inch or so of hair already. She’s slowly shedding that white goo on her skin (called vernix caseosa) but you might see some of it at birth.



Quick note about this picture, if I look funny it’s because this was literally taken right before we rushed out the door thinking we were having a baby. I was so overwhelmed and flustered. For a full run down of week 38 aka the week of hell go here.




Baby keeps growing, despite being so crowded in there. She probably weighs around 6.2 to 9.2 pounds and measures about 18.9 to 20.9 inches. She’s probably able to flex his limbs now. Her brain is still rapidly developing — he’s getting smarter by the week! Her nails may extend past his fingertips.

How Far Along: 39 Weeks

Due Date: March 13th, 2013

Boy or girl: Baby Girl <3

Currently craving: Italian Pasta Salad so I made it. I’ve lived off that stuff this pregnancy! So yummy!

Currently Avoiding: Still not really big on meat which also seems to be a recurring theme this pregnancy.

Weight: Don’t ask, don’t tell.

Belly button status: Sorta in? It’s not quite out but it’s also not quite in. It’s like in between. Very weird. I would say in though if someone made me choose. You know because you all REALLY care about the status of my belly button lol.

Sleep grade: Not too shabby 🙂

Recent Crazy Dream: I had a dream that I lost my mucus plug last night. Guess that’s not too crazy.

Evidence of pregnancy brain: Nothing this week 🙂

Symptoms?: Last night was so weird I don’t know if I was just overly tired or what but I was crying and snappy and my body was aching. I went to sleep with Mason at 7 and woke up at midnight stayed up for a couple of hours and then went back to bed. I felt great in the morning.

Health/Appointments: I had three appointments scheduled for today, midwife, Chiro and Urologist but all three were canceled thanks to a snow storm. Will probably have my midwife’s appointment tomorrow and Chiro will be rescheduled for the 13th when I’m 40 weeks. Not sure when I’m rescheduling the urologist appointment but want to go as a precaution.

Also I *think* at least one of my stones (the most painful one) has passed. I feel a ton better haven’t taken any pain meds in 2-3 days, not even Tylenol! I’m so grateful!

Movement: She was so active the entire time I was going through that Kidney Stone stuff but has been a little less active lately, although she’s squirming around right now. We’re ging to do a NST soon to make sure that she wasn’t too effected by my stupid Kidney Stones.

Names: Still have a top 3. We can’t decide which one we love the most we’ll see when we meet her. Middle name is a struggle though.

Any baby related purchases?: I just purchased a crib mattress, waterproof mattress protector for Baby3 and Mason, a baby bath tub and some stuff for Easter (books for both kids). The mattress was the last major thing we needed to get and should be here soon! Hopefully just in time for her arrival.
