39 Weeks Pregnant

At 39 Weeks Pregnant yesterday it has been a bit CRAZY since my last post.  For those of you who follow me on Facebook HERE, you already know that at my 38 week apt last Wednesday the Dr. discovered that our little wiggly baby had moved from her head down to a breech position!!  This was not even a worry in my mind, she had been head down since week 32.  So I went home with some exercises and a plan to go to hospital for what I called the "flip appointment." 
 
All weekend I did the exercises, walked and prayed.  I was at peace with whatever had to happen.  Tall Grandma took the boys on Sunday night so Muscle Man and I could get to the hospital at 7am.  When we arrived they quickly hooked me up and my Dr. started the ultrasound...  Her head was back down and I got a glimpse of her cute little cheeks!!  What a relief.  We spent more time completing the discharge papers than the actual apt.  Since it was still early we went home, had breakfast, took a little nap, then went for a 2.5 mile sunny walk.  It turned out better than I had hoped for, hope she keeps that head down.
 
I have another checkup tomorrow, will see if there are any signs of movement toward labor.  In the mean time I am resting, walking, eating and enjoying time with my boys.  It is a relief not to have to think about work and just BE this week!  +- 6 days!!!
 


Pregnancy Week 39:
 
Miles Run Pregnant: 225 total, done running at about 30 weeks.

Miles Walked Pregnant: I have lost track, I think I am at 175.  I plan to walk a lot this week to help get things MOVING toward meeting our baby girl.
Weight Gained: 32 pounds and holding.  I am proud of this number and feel very fit.
 
Current Cravings: Ice Cream, Fruit, Corn on the cob and Taco Bell  
 
Current Aversion: Nothing really, but also not much sounds good.
Baby Likes: Baby girl likes it when her Daddy and brothers talk to her, she calms almost immediatly.
Baby Dislikes: Sleeping!!  Hehe.. She has been moving in the middle of the night, making it a little tough for me to sleep.  Hopefully this is not a preview of what is to come.
Excitement: Being done with work and knowing that we will meet our baby girl in about a week!!
Gripes: Not knowing when she will come and feeling like I am going to spoil plans of the people I love.  This is a busy week for my family, but I cannot pick when she will come.  As long as the boys are taken care of and Muscle Man is with me all will be fine.  I am a planner so this all stresses me out.
Purchases: Pedicures with Tall Sister.  Shopping trip with Tall Grandma to get gripper socks and a robe.  Nothing new for baby, we have so much already :)
 
I am hoping that the next post will have pictures of our newest addition!!  Thank you for your well wishes and positive vibes.

I'm so glad she flipped back around! A breach baby would sure change things!

so exciting! You look fabulous! I gained 31 lbs with my second son and when I went to hospital in labor, I had only gained 24lbs, I had lost weight those last, two weeks! I was amazed and happy! LOL!

I don't post much but I just want to say good luck and congratulations! I have 2 boys (twins) and a younger daughter. It's been a joy having my baby girl and watch her develop a relationship with her big brothers (4.5 years older). A great memory is how EXCITED she would get as an infant whenever her brothers were around. She would kick and arch and squeal and giggle for them! Not so much for me -- but for them?? True excitement!
Congrats again -- you have some wonderful times ahead!
