39 Weeks Bumpdate

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

I wish I had some fun and exciting news about big changes and that my Dr is pretty sure I'm going to go into labor today...in fact, I am actually already in labor and didn't even know it.....but yea, that's not the case. I had my appt today and there is basically zero change from last week. I am still 2 cm dilated and 75% effaced. That is the same I was with Foster when I was induced. We set an induction date for next Wednesday, June 3rd (my due date) at 5:30 am. I am still getting a ton of blood work done and if there are any changes for that then it could be sooner. 8 days isn't far away at all! I am really bummed that it's looking like I won't get my 100% natural birth that I want but I am just so thankful that River has made it to term that I am trying to focus on that instead :) 

How Far Along: 39 Weeks!

Name: River Jayce (Bryson and I have been discussing another middle name for two middle names and I'm pretty sure we are set on it but are still waiting to tell until we meet him) 

Size: River is the size of a Watermelon! He's anywhere from 18.9-20.9 inches and 6.2-9.2 lbs! It's so exciting! Foster was 6 lbs 11 oz at this time so it will be fun to see what an extra week does! I think River will be a little bigger than Foster though! 

Gender: Our little dude, River Jayce! 

Total weight gain: 38 lbs. No change this week.  

Maternity Clothes: Mainly just wearing comfy clothes. I feel like nothing fits me any more though, not even my maternity clothes. 

Stretch marks? Maybe a couple new ones or my old ones from with Lo just re-stretched out, who knows anymore. Mainly just focusing on the huge rash that is taking over my stomach. It is sooooo itchy! I am ready for that to be over! 

Sleep: Sleep is a hit or miss. I think I sleep awful for a couple of nights and then get so exhausted that I sleep like a rock and only get up four or five times. Normally though I get up 5+ times and have a hard time falling back asleep.  

Movement: Lots of movement but he definitely has his sleep cycles now. He is either moving like crazy or sleeping. 

Best moment this week: This week was pretty relaxed. We went  swimming twice but the weather has been kind of crappy, surprisingly. I'm hoping to go swim this afternoon with the kids but it's supposed to be cloudy later. Bryson and I shot two weddings this weekend so we went to brunch before the second one and that was nice to have a little date.  

Hubby is: Anxious! He is ready more than anyone to meet our little man. He has been looking up natural induction methods and thinks I should just let our Dr induce me this Wednesday at 39 weeks but I am just not ready for an induction yet. We've tried some of the natural induction methods but are pretty much just waiting to see if River is ready or not. Every time I call him he thinks it's time. 

Miss Anything: Definitely ready to feel like myself. I want to sleep hard again and start working out! I am done carrying all the extra weight around! The goal is to lose 50 lbs by 9 months post partum! 

Belly button in or out? Out. It is stretch to the max. So tender. 

Food cravings: I am either starving or want nothing to do with food. Craving ice like a crazy person so I am starting an iron supplement  

Anything making you queasy or sick: Life. 

Labor Signs: So many contractions lately. I feel pretty crappy because of them. I am 100% positive I am going to puke in labor this time because every time I get them I get nauseous. 

Wedding ring on or off? Off. *tear*

Happy or Moody most of the time: I'm either in a really good mood or really bad mood. Hopefully my hormones level out a bit once River is here, but that is just wishful thinking. 

Looking forward to: Meeting River in 8 days! That is so crazy!!!! I am so excited to meet him, see what he's like and kiss his sweet, squishy baby forehead!  

Foster sleeps on the ground, Lo sleeps on Fosters bed and Lunchbox (our shitzu) sleeps in a hole she dug instead of her bed...why do we buy beds again?

This sweet girl had her kindergarten graduation last week! 

After her graduation we rushed to Aunt T's graduation and made it with 10 seconds to spare before her name was called! 

I am seriously obsessed with how this kid sleeps! 

It was so cold at the weddings this past weekend so Bryson picked up a sweater. I looked like a bum at the second wedding, but I was a warm bum! 

There was the sweetest photo booth set up where you replace your name with a picture of you. Bryson and I don't have any kiss pictures besides our wedding so we snapped a quick Polaroid to take home :) Bryson is sexy and I am just wide. 

My boyfriend came with me to my appt this morning. He was not patient! He just wanted to get out of there! We were there early though, so we hung out in the car and drank Starbucks until it opened. 

Aren't they the sweetest thing?! This is how they have been sleeping lately, it melts my heart! These kids love to cuddle!

Hi! I'm pregnant for the first time, so new to all of this! Why is your doctor going to induce you instead of waiting? Just curious as I'm hoping for a natural birth as well. :)
