Pregnancy Update #10

How far are we: 39 week and 2 days

How big is baby: Connor keeps growing, despite being so crowded in there. He weighs around 6.2 to 9.2 pounds and measures about 18.9 to 20.9 inches.

Total weight gain: 30 pounds exactly! I can't believe it! I know gaining weight was part of the whole pregnancy thing but I struggled with imaging myself actually gaining 30 pounds. 

Maternity clothes: The only non-maternity clothing I can fit into is some tanktops and pajama pants.

Stretch marks: None!

Movement: Lots, mostly at night. He is a night owl (oh joy). But when I'm sleeping, he is too because I don't get woken up by him at all.

Sleep: It's hit or miss. If I stay up later, I seem to really wear myself out and sleep pretty good through the night. I usually get up 2-3 times to potty.
Best moment this week: I talked to my Dr. about being induced on October 30th. I have an appt. on the 24th with the Dr. that is on-call on the 30th to see if he is okay with this. Let's hope so! But regardless, we will have the little guy by October 31st. They won't let me go over 41 weeks.

Food cravings: I gained 2.4 pounds in 9 days so apparently I like all things edible. I still don't crave anything. I just like most foods.

Labor signs: I haven't felt any contractions or any other telltale labor signs. After my exam today, the Dr. said that I haven't made any progress. Which I was aware of, I feel like Connor is nice and snug in there.

Belly button in or out: In and I am hoping it stays that way!

What I miss: People asking me about me and not my pregnancy. I'm a little over being asked how I am feeling and what the baby is doing and if I'm over being pregnant and oh, you've gotten so big. How about someone ask what I'm doing this weekend or what I want for my birthday!?

What I'm looking forward to: Meeting with the October 30th, on-call Dr. I hope to have him before then but that will give me some piece of mind of when we will get to meet our little guy!


  1. SOOO close! I remember getting an induction date made me feel better because then you know for sure you will have him by a certain day. I hope he's born the 30th then he and Hunter will be exactly 10 months apart! And having a birthday right around Halloween would be fun.

  2. So what are you doing this weekend??? And what's on your birthday list? ;)

    Such an exciting time...I delivered at 39w2d!

  3. Alright Connor, you've got a date! Hope he decides to come before then for ya and that you can get lots of rest between now and then!

    And I definitely remember being ready to slap some people when they'd ask me how I was feeling by that point! I mean, COME ON...I'm lugging around 30 extra pounds, how do you think I'm feeling?
