Well, here we are. I’m 39 weeks (and 3 days, but who’s counting?) and we’re more than ready to meet our little baby. Richard actually has a big work project starting tomorrow, so perhaps little man can help his Daddy get out of it by deciding to grace us with his presence soon?!
We had a lovely weekend. The weather was gorgeous, so Richard was able to tackle a few yard projects. You know, things that we won’t have time for when baby IS here. Yesterday, we spent the day out and about in Raleigh. We visited the North Carolina Museum of Art where we ran into my high school art teacher, Mrs. Harrell — what a nice surprise! We also wandered around the museum park, snapped a few photos, and even witnessed a sweet couple’s engagement!
From the museum, we headed to Hillsborough Street to pick up some summertime brews from Red Line Beer & Wine, an awesome new bottle shop. And we ended up at Irregardless Cafe (no surprise there) for a delicious vegetarian dinner paired with live music.
Here’s what’s been going on this week in my pregnancy, as well as some snaps of baby’s setup in our master bedroom. I’ll be sharing nursery photos tomorrow, too!
Weeks: 39 (due date is Friday!)
Maternity clothes: Nothing new, as I’m now looking at nursing tops and dresses.
Sleep: It’s been hit or miss lately. I’m getting up to pee anywhere from 2-5 times each night now, which can really ruin even a seemingly great night’s sleep. Sooo yeah.
Miss anything? I miss being able to tie my own shoelaces without doing crazy contortionist moves.
Movement: Still hiccuping, rolling, and stretching!
Food cravings: Peanut butter and chocolate anything.
Symptoms: Bladder pressure like woah, backaches, and minor heartburn.
Belly button: Super shallow innie!
Emotions: I haven’t gotten overly-emotional once during this entire pregnancy, but Richard says that’s just not really in my nature anyways. I know I’m in for a hormonal roller coaster when this baby arrives, though!
Best moment this week: Spending time at the art museum park on Sunday. It was just such a pretty day, and I loved being able to get some exploring / walking in with Richard.
Looking forward to: HOPEFULLY having this baby soon! I’d love for this to be my final “weekly” update… but I have a feeling this little man is going to be late. I guess we’ll find out soon enough!
Have a beautiful week!
