Baby Update: 39 weeks

Oh, hey, 39 Weeks. Didn't really think we would ever get to this point. But here we are. Week 39 was much, much, much better then week 38. 

Babe news: 
Age: 39 weeks
Size: Watermelon [not his head...his head is NOT the size of a watermelon, right?] 
Cool life events: Pretty much just getting fatter and smarter.

A lot changed for me this week. 

It's been hard for me to remember that there is a person inside of me. He feels like a fish. It's hard for me to translate his movements into human. It always has been that way. At our baby appointment last Thursday, we could not wake up Baby Cakes and get his heart rate up. So my midwife wanted to check him. He's big, and it's hard to see a lot of details in the ultrasound at this point, but as the ultrasound rolled over my pelvis he looked up. I saw his face. It changed everything. I loved him. I could not wait to hold him. To kiss him. My heart became ready, in that second, to be his mum. I know, I know, I am a late bloomer in this area. But frankly, newborns have never been my people group and I don't particularly love holding babies that are not my close friends' or family. Pregnancy has been creepy to me. I was not one of those little girls who dreamed about having a new born. I dreamed of having a 3 year old. But this one, this kid, this baby boy, I can't WAIT for him to be here. To sleep next to us. I study him and try and figure him out. 

Like my new blazer? I found it at Goodwill for $12. I will like it more when I don't have such a huge belly and am holding a cute babe [in a bow tie?]. It will look great for fall. 

What do you guys think? Will he come this week? Sat is my due date.
