Guess what!?! I'm 39 weeks along! (actually 39 weeks 4 days!)
That's just 3 days away from my due date!!
That means hopefully I will have a little girl in the next week?! (PLLLLEASE Raleigh Grace come out!! :) )
Your baby's waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it's likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.
my family is heading this way this week-- mom, tomorrow and one sister on Saturday-- the others are going to come next week and I am so excited!
I went to the doc yesterday and everything was still great! We heard baby girl's heart beat and it was 143 (I think hah)
The nursery is about as FINISHED as it is going to be for the time being. Get excited to see a post with pics soon :)
K and I re-arranged the furniture about 100 times yesterday and could NOT for the life of us find a way in which we loved it. We finally just left it and hung a few things on the walls.
There are still several things that I would like to add to the room but those things will come later when I have more money (ha!).
I really do love the room. I even laid on the bed last night (day bed- no, I was not one of those crazies getting in the crib haha!) just playing on my phone, relaxing. I am so so soooo thankful that my hubby has been such a great help-- really, almost all that you will see in the nursery HE did it himself! I am so blessed by him and his service to us and can not wait to see him in the role of daddy to our baby girl!
Every night I go to bed wondering if I will be getting up in the middle of the night to make our way to the hospital. :)
The weather here has been absolutely BEAUTIFUL... high's in the 70's low's in the high 40's. We have had the windows open, screen doors open, spent lots of time on the porch, etc. The leaves are also changing and we are starting to see pumpkin patches popping up around town. This is such a beautiful time of year and I am happy to be bringing my little girl into the world at this time. The past several days I just keep thinking,
"TODAY would be a great day to have a baby!"
and have even joked with the hubs that its so pretty outside I would like to have the baby outdoors haha :)
Not much has changed from last week's update so I'm not going to bother with all the questions from the normal weekly posts (hope that's okay ha!)
One fun thing K and I did Monday night was play lots of music for Miss Raleigh Grace-- He would put songs on his phone and hold his phone against my belly. Little girl got to practice her dance moves and boy does she have some!
Here is what mommy and daddy learned: RG prefers Nelly over Outcast but her favorite of all the different types of music we played.... BLUEGRASS (go figure!) -- we already have a daddy's girl on our hands :)
Can not wait to see this little girl and her beautiful face and wonderful personality! :)
