39 weeks 4 days

How Far Along: 39 weeks 4 days

How Big is Baby: Baby Keytar is the size of a mini watermelon! I really don’t know exactly how big though – could be anywhere from 7-8 lbs I guess, but I don’t really feel like he/she is 8 lbs., but I’ve never done this before so I really have no frame of reference.

Gender: Not finding out, but we’re sure it’s a boy.

Baby’s Milestones This Week: Baby Keytar is still developing fat and the outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.

Total Weight Gain: about 26 lbs. I lost a lb. this past week, which I hear is normal right before birth.

Who We’ve Told About the Pregnancy: Mostly everyone knows.

Maternity Clothes: Mostly, but i have sundresses that aren’t really maternity dresses that I am comfortable in – like the one in today’s photo.

Stretch Marks: nope, nothing new since the few on my breasts that happened early on in the pregnancy, but they’re pretty light.

Sleep: I slept better last night than I have in forever! I listened to an 8 hour long deep sleep ambient music meditation on youtube with headphones. I had been sleeping terribly and needed to try something new. I also added two throw pillows from the couch to my situation – one under my arms and one between my knees. They’re smaller than bed pillows and were much more comfortable and easier to move when I switched sides throughout the night.

Best Moment of the Week: Realizing that everything is ready for Baby Keytar’s arrival and that he/she is doing awesome in there.

Food Cravings: Anything and everything! Sushi!

Food Aversions: just sick of eggs, quesadillas, and the same old shit I eat all the time.

Symptoms: tired, carpal tunnel (although massage is really helping that!!!!), large and in-charge belly

Labor Signs: Yesterday I started feeling really heavy in my pelvic area. I get some sharp groin pains here and there, mostly at night when I’m standing. I was a tiny bit nauseas yesterday and was having light period-like cramps and my back hurt a couple times.

Belly Button In or Out: out

Wedding Rings On or Off: Off

Mood: starting to get a tiny bit nervous and anxious but overall, feeling great!

Movement: yup!

What I’m Looking Forward To: meeting Baby Keytar! But I’m holding out until Tuesday for libra, which is crazy, I know, but I’m still trying!

What I Miss: eating whatever I want to

Nesting: Yup! The house is ready for baby’s arrival! We’re keeping things clean and sitting around drawing on blank onesies. I made this sleep sack yesterday with Phish lyrics and hubby’s working on a onesie with a van Gogh image and Phish lyrics that’s gonna look awesome.

The woman who made the pumpkin hat threw in this cute bear hat too! The flower is a clip, so we can take it off, since it’s probably a boy 😉

    • I’ll cross my fingers for you if you cross for me 😉 good luck! Libra’s are awesome (my hubby is a libra and some of my favorite friends and family members)

      • Agreed! I’m a Pisces, so Libra’s are a great compliment to my personality. A Scorpio daughter terrifies me! My fingers and toes are crossed for you!!!

      • thanks. starting to feel a bit better over the last few days (thank goodness!) as a libra as well, i hope you can add to the libra population 😉 i was researching our due date and we could be having a taurus. not very familiar with that sign but i read they aren’t compatible with libra or leo (me and hubby). a strong headed bull that’s not compatible with either parents?! life could be very interesting! LOL

  1. You look great hon! I am so excited for you! Any time now little Keytar! That onsie you painted is amazing! I love the little hats too!

    • Hi! Thank you so much! I haven’t been able to find any sleep sacks that are colored for cheap and have also had a difficult time finding cheap white ones. What size are you looking for? I can look again and see if I can find a white one. I have been doing this design for people on onesies and shirts, and kimono shirts (which do not come larger than 6 months unfortunately). Check out My Tiny Tourdrobe on Facebook and etsy 🙂
