39 Week BUMPdate – Baby Has a Name!

Baby is the size of a jackfruit! Bigger than a pumpkin and growing more every day!

All that baby’s been up to this week:
– Although many babies have less, baby could have up to an inch of hair on her head by now.
– Baby probably weighs around 7-8lbs this week!
– The skin coming in beneath baby’s fetal skin is baby-soft, but it may also be a little dry.



All that’s been going on with me:

Weight gained: I had a midwife appointment on Tuesday. I gained 0lbs since my previous appointment! This brings my total weight gain to -1lbs. I’m curious to discover if I’ll gain that 1lb back before baby arrives!

Workouts: I walk Bella to school every morning, which is a 40 minute round trip.

Symptoms: I’m still suffering from a horrible PUPPS rash. This pesky rash has made my last few weeks of pregnancy miserable. I’m so tired of clawing my stomach to death, and I’m shocked I haven’t drawn blood yet.

Movement: She’s quiet and calm some days, and other days she won’t stop moving.

Food Aversions: No aversions.

Food Cravings: Chick fil A nuggets.

Sleep: Oh yeah, I’m sleeping a lot! Never know when I’ll get stretches of sleep like this again!

Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week: My midwife checked my cervix for progression, and I found out I’m 3cm dilated. Baby is still quite high.

Dennis and I have agreed on a name for the baby, and we’ll be revealing it after she’s born. 🙂

Belly Button In or Out: Out.

Happy or Moody: Moody.

New Baby Items: My mom bought a pink shaggy rug for the girls’ room. I can’t wait to put it down once Bella’s new bed frame gets put together.

Looking Forward To: My baby girl being born and announcing her name!

See you at 40 weeks!
