Bumpdate Week 40



Due Date: November 18th-Happy Due Date to our little man!

How far along: 40 Weeks. It's baby time!!
Size of baby: Estimated to be about 7 lbs and about 20 inches long
Total weight gain: 18 lbs
Maternity clothes: I'm basically living in the same leggings and a limited rotation of stretchy shirts. No more need for maternity clothes.
Stretch marks: I feel super fortunate not to have had any during this pregnancy. Those that do have those beautiful stripes, wear them proudly. They brought your miracles here.
Sleep: Although I won't be getting much sleep when the baby gets here, I'll be so happy to sleep more comfortably. This body is tired.
Best moment of the week: Enjoying mine and Ryan's last moments together as a family of two. Baby will be here any day now, and change our lives forever.
Miss anything: I miss moving around easily. I feel like a bus.
Movement: I'm so nervous that I'm going to miss these baby movements so much.
Food cravings: Just food in general at this point. Ha!
Anything making you queasy or sick: I've been so lucky with no sickness during this pregnancy.
Have you started to show yet: There's no question! Haha!
Gender: Baby boy <3
Labor signs: My most recent appointment showed that I'm dilated to 1 cm. Still no contractions or labor symptoms.
Belly button in or out: It's an outie for sure!
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and also so nervous!
Looking forward to: Meeting our sweet boy! We're so nervous but SO, SO excited!

Happy Due Date to our little guy. Mom and dad are so incredibly excited to meet you! 
XO,
Les
