I've made it to 39 weeks 5 days and no sign of baby yet. Here is the recap for the week.
Weeks: 39 weeks 5 days
Weight gain: 25-26.5lbs
Exercise: One good long walk and 2 short 1 mile walks around the block.
Name Update: Leo is not 100% sure on the name we decided about 2 months ago so we are now between two names! Cutting a little close wouldn't you say. I'm a little frustrated but hopefully once he is born we will know what name fits him the best.
Pregnancy Complaints: Braxton Hicks still around and during the weekend my lower back has been really sore. Today I feel much better and I think it was due to my massage on Saturday.
Other news: At my 39th week appointment I was at 2cm and 50% effaced. Woohoo. With Nic it took me about 40+ hours from the first contraction to 3cm. I think this labor will be shorter or at least that is what I'm praying for. I actually had a little scare last Sunday/Monday when I was having timeable contractions 8 minutes apart for about 4-5 hours but then they died down. I think that is what got me to the 2cm. No more contractions all week or this weekend. Leo and I had thought that maybe this weekend was when he would make his appearance but I guess not.
I'm starting to wonder what he will look like, like Leo, me or Nic. Will he have as much hair as Nic? I keep praying for a good labor and delivery and a healthy baby boy. I pray that Nic adjusts to the new baby and that we have the patience for the new baby and Nic. I know it is going to be an adjustment for the whole family and I pray for the strength to be able to survive the first few months that are so hard.
Here are the pics week 39! Maybe next week it will be a baby instead!
Until next time!
