The Final Countdown

We are officially on the final countdown - Baby could decide to come any day!  I've had a few more showers over the last few weeks and lots of dr. appointments!  At the most recent appointment, we got our final sonogram, which made me feel a lot like Rachel in Friends.  The main picture was of his/her face and, even after asking my doctor to decipher it and looking at it at home, I still don't see it!  But everything is looking good and we could have a baby any time in the next couple weeks.

How far along: 37 weeks, 4 days

How big is baby: 6 pounds 3 ounces
Total weight gain: approx. 27-28 pounds 
Sleep: A couple bathroom trips and every once in a while I can't go back to sleep and end up exercising at 3:30am before trying again
Maternity Clothes: Yes.  Though I would like to say that today I rocked my non-maternity J. Simp skinny jeans - I bought them a size too big, they're stretchy material, and were help up by a rubber band and belly band, but still... I wore them!  (Also, the maxi dress in the picture below was purchased a couple weeks ago in the juniors dept. at Dillard's!).
Morning Sickness: None at all - so thankful
Food Cravings: Still icy drinks; fruit; orange juice
Food aversions: None
Challenges: Reaching for things; bending over
Movement: Definitely!
Boy or Girl?: Surprise!
What I’m looking forward to: Meeting Baby!
What I miss: pencil skirts
Next appointment: June 12

My awesome hostesses at my Dallas shower!  Such a great time!


  1. Take care of yourself and that precious bundle of joy. June 24th would be a good day since it is Tracy and my birthday. You look marvelous.


  2. I'm so sad to have missed your shower! You look beautiful. Take it all in and enjoy every second. (Well, maybe not these last few weeks of pregnancy.. there's not much enjoyable about that..) but there is NOTHING like having your first baby. It goes by in such a whirl, but it is the most amazing thing you will ever experience. Can't wait!!
