38 Weeks

I'm almost busting out of this shirt!!
23 weeks. And I thought I was showing at this point...
Well there you have it, me at 38 weeks. Hopefully this is my last update! My due date is 13 days away!! I can't believe we are going to have a BABY soon. It is such a surreal feeling. For the past 38 weeks, we knew we were having a baby, we knew it was coming in July, but we also knew we had time. And now here we are, so so close. We don't have very much time.

Really, same old same old is happening with me. I'm getting bigger, puffier, and sweatier. My morning sickness seems to have come back a little bit...which is the worst. Lucky it isn't every day. Well I take that back. I'm nauseous almost every morning, but typically it goes away, especially if I drink something fizzy.

I am starting to have zero energy after work. Actually, I have zero energy during work. I have trouble getting off furniture. And I have trouble staying away from treats.

I'm still sleeping pretty ok and I'm basically comfortable when I go to sleep. Some nights my mind won't shut down so I can't go to sleep for hours. Other nights I go right to sleep. All nights I still wake up 3-4 times to use the bathroom.

I don't have much progress with the baby. I was hardly doing anything at my last doctors appointment. Thankfully, in talking to my sisters, that doesn't necessarily mean anything. The best news the doctor gives me is that I'm still very healthy and Abby has a strong heartbeat. I am hoping she starts to have a strong desire to come out.

Everyday Sam is getting more excited. He set up our crib the other day and he was just so happy. He loves to see Abby go crazy in my tummy He is so sweet about it!! And above all, when I feel not cute, he still thinks I am and lets me know. And that means a lot. I can't wait to see him hold our little girl. And I can't wait to meet her.


  1. i can't wait to see what she looks like! good luck with her coming out on schedule! :)

  2. wowzers- i know its never good to say you're huge. so i wont say it, but know im thinking it. i cant believe how big abbie is!! i am so excited to see her! hopefully shell watch hp this weekend and know its time to enter the world, now that voldemort is dead.

  3. ahhhh! I can't believe when I come back I'll be an aunt for the second time! (hopefully) I'm so excited for you guys and I can't wait to meet her and for you not to be sick anymore :)

  4. so close! I am jealous...I am only 2 weeks behind you - but two weeks is forever in pregnant time. Hopefully she will be here soon!

  5. I love that you put a picture up of you really pregnant and a little bit pregnant in the same shirt. I wish I had taken pictures like that when I was pregnant with Emmy :). They're so fun!

    She's going to be here so soon and I am so excited to meet her! Babies are sooo much fun...a ton of work, but totally worth it :)
