39 Week Bumpdate & CONTEST

39 WEEKS! 
Wow... I've been carrying our sweet son for 39 weeks. Crazy to think about!

Size of baby:  Just had an appointment yesterday.... he's thinking 7ish pounds but you can't REALLY predict that.... :)

Symptoms: Feeling a bit nauseous today, but overall pretty good. Sore and tired at night and SWOLLEN ankles = yucky!

Cravings: Mostly FRESH foods... asparagus... grilled chicken... mmmmm

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! (Same as last week)

Milestones: Dilated to 1cm! Not that it means much but there is progress and I will take it... and he was able to strip my membranes. Hopefully that will help :)

Looking Forward To: Holding Jude and having our own birth story for this sweet baby boy!

Prayer for our baby this week:
Dear Lord, Thank you for the great patience you have instilled in me this week. I was able to surrender my timeline at church on Sunday and it was soooo freeing! Thank you that you have the PERFECT birthday in mind for our sweet Jude. Please continue to keep him and I safe as we wait these next few days or weeks. God - you are in control... We ask for a SAFE delivery and that Jude would be 100% healthy! We love you Lord... AMEN!

If he doesn't come out that time/size, it's not the right baby.

Hi Ria!!!

It's been a long time, my friend. I love your blog and your bumpdate pictures!

So I realize this is not favorable, but I'm going to guess April 1st. Just remember, being late isn't ALL bad. Jude may be able to sleep for longer periods of time the heavier he is. :)

Oh, and weight - 7 lbs, 1 ounce.

Can't wait to hear how it goes!

MegsM said...

Can't believe how close it is!! You will have him by Easter (more than likely unless they let you go WAY over!)!!!! Can you believe it!?!?! Cherish these last few days. ::) Can't wait to hear and see all about it!!!

Kelsey Claire said...

I have been away from blog land for a long time, but I am so happy to hear that you are having a precious baby! A belated congrats!

Jenny said...

You look beautiful sweet friend! Just think you are going to have your baby before Easter! Jude's first holiday! It was Carson's first holiday too, how precious that their first holiday is celebrating Christ rising from the grave!

My guess is March 25th, and 7 lbs 5 oz :)

march 24 we will welcome Jude he will be 7 lb and 7 oz and he will be born at 11:10 pm. I could not help but be confident. By the way could you take a few swigs of castor oil say 24 hours before the above time. HeHeHe

I'm gonna guess march 29th and he will weigh 8 pds 2 oz. I was 2 cm dilated for 2 weeks and had my membranes stripped at 37 weeks and was induced at 39 weeks with Joshua. And I went a week over with Sam being 2 cm for 2 weeks. Hopefully the same won't happen for you and he will come soon! Praying for a smooth, fast delivery and a healthy baby boy!
