38+ Weeks

How far along? 38w 4d.
Size of Esme? Real baby size. Anywhere from 6-8 lbs and 20-22 inches.  They say my tummy measurements are normal at 40 cm. 

Movement? She likes to flip flops her bottom from the right to the left side and back again. I guess she still has plenty of room in there!

Miss Anything? Volleyball.

Best moments this week? David getting a job offer! Here we come Virginia...

Also, finishing up my last book on babies. I definitely feel more prepared!

Sleep? For a few hours at a time. I think my body's preparing for the next few months of night time feedings.

Baby's position? She's still head down but the midwife confirmed again that she's not yet engaged. Not to worry though since some babies don't engage in the pelvis until labor starts.

Food cravings? I'm mostly uninterested in food unless I'm bored. Occasionally I crave something sweet.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Sugar. It's cruel.

Labor Signs? More Braxton Hicks.

Symptoms? Swelling. Heartburn.  The usual.

Belly Button in or out? In.

Looking forward to? Family visits and holding our little girl (on the outside)!

Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy and antsy, not at all moody. Yay.


  1. Aww Carly, neither can we! I heard that YOU have a new baby in the house. You'll have to give us some pointers ;) We love and miss you!

  2. The Nack puppy is the cutest thing. I met her today . "Chloe" We talked about the excitement of Esme coming soon.
    Grandpa and I are really excited to come across the pond soon and meet our granddaughter (it's fun to write that!)
    GREAT job news!
    Enjoy Sophie's company.

  3. Single digit count down woo hoo
