Pregnancy Update: 39 Weeks

Photos: Stesha Jordan Photography

Dress: Morning Lavender (non-maternity — I wore this long slip underneath because the lining in the dress was too short with the bump) // Similar dress option here (same print, slightly different style)
*See my other pregnancy updates here, here, and here.*

How far along: 39 weeks and 5 days…only two days away from my due date!!!

Baby size: A small pumpkin! Approximately 7-8 pounds and 19-21 inches tall.

Total Weight Gain: 33 pounds

Gender: Girl

Movement: All the time! There’s not a lot of room left for big kicks but she’s constantly rolling around in there, especially when I’m laying on my side. Her movements are starting to get uncomfortable since she’s sitting so low now but it’s getting me excited and reminding me that she’ll be here in no time!

Symptoms: I’ve been having some cramping, lower back pain, and a few contractions for the past week. It’s also getting uncomfortable to walk around a lot because she’s so low.

Belly Button: Innie

Physical Changes: The bump has definitely started to drop!

What I Miss: Non-maternity clothes and not needing to use the bathroom every ten minutes. Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration but I’m typically getting up 4-5 times every night. Hopefully it’s getting me ready for the lack of sleep once she’s here!

Food Cravings: Lots of icy cold fruit…pineapples and watermelon have been my favorites!

Food Aversions: None

What we’re most excited about: Getting to meet baby girl!

What we’re least excited about: Wondering when exactly meeting baby girl is going to happen. It feels like the past few weeks have just been dragging by because we’re so excited.

Nursery: I’ll be doing a full reveal of her nursery in the next few weeks but I wanted to share a little sneak peek! I made sure to link the products shown below.
