Baby Stuff // 11


Before we start, how crazy cute is that pea coat?! Osh Kosh sent over a little surprise package of some baby man clothes from their holiday collection and it’s all. so. perfect.

He’s fully cooked! It’s kind of freaking me out to think that little guy could come any time and he’d be good to go. Zoinks. The good news is he’s head-down, according to my doc. So everybody is in position and ready to rumble. The bad news is that his feet and hands are seemingly permanently trying to bust out of the left side of my abdomen, which feels pretty creepy and looks even creepier. Imagine a tiny foot stretching a blown-up balloon from the inside out. You get the picture.

But! I feel good, mostly! And I’m leaving it at that. No, it’s not comfortable being 9 months pregnant but who really cares at this point. We’re in the home stretch. Fingers crossed that I get a few more little projects done in the guy’s nursery before he’s here. At the very least, we have a carseat installed so we get that one little gold star on our parenting chart. Yay us! xoxo

WEEK 37.

EATING ohhhhh so much leftover Halloween candy, but I’m pretty sure that has nothing to do with the baby.

DRINKING coconut water. Who do I think I am?

READING back through all of the pages I dog eared or underlined in our baby books. Because, ya know, that’s what’ll teach me to be a good mom right? (Just nod and agree please.)

WANTING the feeling in my fingertips back. Remember that whole carpal tunnel thing? Just getting worse.

SLEEPING shockingly well! I’m starting to wonder if some of the pregnancy horror stories I’ve been told were told to me by overly dramatic people…

WEARING anything tight. Because when I wear tight things people tell me I look smaller. And then I win the game.

FEELING scaaaaared. What are we going to do with a baby?!?!

LOVING the thought that all moms have done what I’m doing right now. As in, every single woman who has ever had a child. They’ve all been pregnant, they’ve all been through labor, they’ve all been through the first few scary and sleepy weeks with a newborn, and they’ve all come out the other side. It’s a comforting thought.

  1. How exciting! Are you able to actually SEE his foot outline through your belly? I found found out we’re having our first baby boy, so I’m completely prepared to hoard all of the pea coats and suspenders and fedoras!

  2. Ahhh! Reading you’re at 37 weeks is making me freak out here at 32 weeks. I’m so excited for you and your son! You’ve got this. 🙂

  3. I’m thinking about seeing a prego-friendly chiropractor to find out if a realignment will help with my prego-induced carpal tunnel. Ever considered it?

  4. So excited for you!! Looking forward to the post where you introduce us to baby. But really don’t worry about it if you’re just too tired to do anything after you deliver. All the best and I pray you will have a smooth delivery! 🙂

  5. I’m at 26 weeks and I have been constantly thinking about the fact that every woman who has had a child has gone through this too! I keep thinking, “well she did it and she seems totally fine!” You got this girl!
