38 Week Bumpdate

Another week has gone by... yay!

38 WEEKS!

Size of baby:  We have another visit on Thursday... and at our 37 week one he said 6lbs. I am guessing 6.5lbs this week. Not 100% sure and they can only "guesstimate"....

Symptoms: TONS of movement. I am not sure if he is trying so hard to get out or what the deal is. On Monday night from 10pm-3am he didn't stop rolling around. I was hoping they were contractions but there wasn't pain just lots of pressure. I think they were SUPER intense braxton hicks. Come on babbyyyy boy.... break that water ;)

Cravings: Celery. I craved celery last night, how odd. I really am into FRESH stuff right now. Skip the greasy food... yuck!


Something you Miss: Nothing. I think if I were to miss something it would be the preparing... because we are all prepared. Ready. Set. Go!

Milestones: JOSH/DADDY got a job! It's such a blessing and he starts on Monday... that's maybe why we want this little guy to also enter the world soon is so daddy can spend some MORE time with him before starting his new job. Either way - it is such a QUICK answer to prayer and we are so thankful!

Looking Forward To: JUDE! JUDE! JUDE! We want to meet our son!!

Prayer for our baby this week:
Dear Father - thank you for all the prayers you have answered this week! We couldn't praise you more - you have come through for us time and time again. We have surrendered our timeline for Jude and want your best. Please help us to not just say those words but also BELIEVE them! We pray Jude will continue to develop the areas he needs to in the womb and that he would be nourished and comfy... but not TOO comfy that he doesn't want to come out ;) We love you Lord. Amen.

I couldn't eat hardly anything near the end, there just wasn't room in my belly for food!

Congrats Ria! So fun and getting so close! Believe me when I say they absolutely come when they're ready and not a second sooner, so rest in the fact that Gods timing is perfect :) Also....my doctor told me my first baby was going to be 9 or 10 pounds and he was only 7! Just a funny story because I was preparing for this huge baby and turns out he was a peanut :)
