39 weeks + the final countdown

Well... 2 days from the big Due Date, and I feel like we're playing a waiting game! Poppyseed is still quite comfortable inside, and hasn't really shown any signs of making his appearance.

39 weeks + 4 days and rocking the winter coat. How is it 27*F outside in November??!?
I had my 39 week appointment on Tuesday, and got to have a surprise ultrasound! After a routine non-stress test, my doctor wanted to check the level of amniotic fluid, just to be sure he was still doing ok in there. (Good news: everything is great!) I got to see his little squishy face, and it was just what I needed!

I know that I'm probably the only one who sees this and immediately thinks "ohmyupercutebabyface!" My Business Man had a hard time figuring out what was what, ha.
Not much else is new... just waiting on our little man. I am officially *done* baking cupcakes after this Saturday, so I might have a bit of extra free time next week while we wait for this little kidd-o. Might have to do some Christmas shopping. 

If he doesn't arrive by the end of next week, we will most likely induce... which is mighty fine with me. In the meantime, I'll be eating all the pineapple, drinking all the raspberry red leaf tea, bouncing on all the birth balls, walking all the miles, eating all the spicy food, and perhaps I will treat myself to a massage and pedicure. Ha.

39 Weeks - The Facts

Poppyseed's size: The size of a baby. Not bigger than 10 lbs I hope. ;)

Sleep: Getting progressively worse... I am waking up 6-7 times a night! Ahhhhh. But napping almost every afternoon.

Movement: More bigger movements, like he's stretching out. It actually hurts my skin sometimes, the pushing and pulling.

Running/Workouts: Walking, walking, and more walking! Rolling over in bed is quite the workout, too.

Cravings: Nothing really, to be honest. I've had a larger appetite (since he's dropped) which is nice. We had a Friendsgiving over the weekend and the mashed potatoes were amazing! I also made some pretty bangin' homemade rolls if I do say so myself.

What I am missing: Walking like a normal human being.

Looking forward to: Seeing Poppyseed in person! Hopefully sooner than later... not really thinking he's going to greet us by Saturday, though.
