39 weeks - ONE!!

How far along: 39 weeks 

Countdown to EDD: One week/7 days!!!

Baby is the size of a: Watermelon. We had a growth scan this week and they estimated that he weighs about 7 pounds 3 ounces.

Physical symptoms: Just generally sore and uncomfortable plus chapped crotch from taking evening primrose oil. Oh and heartburn.

Mood: Ugh. Yesterday was terrible. The chapped crotch just got to be too much. The diaper rash cream just wasn't cutting it. I felt so bad because I was getting so annoyed with Seth simply because he was happy and I was not. I did NOT take the EPO last night. My doctor recommended it, but she also says that it's really important to do whatever you need to do to stay in a good place mentally. Diaper rash was doing nothing good for my mental state.   

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  I don't know. I imagine more than +25, but I really don't want to find out.

Maternity clothes: Yes, plus yoga pants and some of Seth's clothes. I look awesome.    

Sleep: Still decent

Best moment of the week: Seeing Baby E at the growth scan. Next time I see him, he'll be an outside baby!

Movement: Still wild

Food cravings/aversions: Nothing in particular. I did buy a six pack of beer though. To be enjoyed after Baby E is born, of course.

Sex: Boy

Labor signs: Same as last week. I may have had some very mild real contractions last night, but they didn't last or wake me up and I haven't felt any today (just the BH). I will be so annoyed if the motherfucking EPO hasn't done anything to my cervix. It probably hasn't it. I only used it six days.

What I miss: Not having a fire crotch.

What I am looking forward to: Not having a fire crotch. And Baby E's due date!

Milestones: Baby E is considered full term today! 

Showing yet: Please excuse my "outfit". I'll put pants on eventually, but you know how I feel about real clothes on Sundays. 


  1. I cannot believe you are here. Finally. (And also so quickly! In my mind anyway...) Full term :-) Good for you, mama! And you look absolutely incredible.
    Sorry your crotch is on fire...I think I need to read back through your posts to see what the heck is going on there.
    I hope the aches and pains and uncomfortability (is that a word) will be manageable until baby E comes! You will be holding him so soon!!! <3

  2. One more week!! (give or take) I hope your crotch fire subsides soon (although I definitely got a bit of a laugh about how much of this post was dedicated to it). I can't wait for you to meet E!!

  3. 39 weeks!!! I'm going to be stalking your blog from now on, just to let you know - in anticipation for baby's arrival! Time sure has flown by! You still look amazing. Best of luck and sending prayers and well wishes for a safe and healthy delivery!

  4. Full term!!!! So amazing!! I can't believe how close you are to meting E, and thus ME meeting E!!! I hope the crotch fire subsides for you soon!! You look fantastic as always!
