39 Weeks & Waiting!!

39 Weeks Pregnancy Update

Robert is due in 6 days. It's May 1st and I'm ready to burst! I am VERY ready to meet him!
How Far Along: Today I am 39 Weeks and 1 day into my pregnancy. I have a Doctor appointment tomorrow to see how much further I have progressed. I am hoping Robert decides to make his appearance soon, mostly because I just can't wait to meet him!!!

Size of Baby: Little Robert is the size of a watermelon!!!! Yes, I said a watermelon, can you believe it!!

Development This Week: Your baby's waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it's likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath

Maternity Clothes: Anything I can still fit into at this point. :)

Gender: We are having a precious baby boy!!! Robert William Christensen

Movement: Lot's of movement. I can always feel his little feet!

Sleep: Lately sleep is all I want and love to do!

What I miss: At this point my ability to fit back into my skinny jeans!!!! :(

Cravings: Not many.

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks and cramping.

Best Moment this week: Hanging out with my Mom. She has been staying with us until baby arrives. We made little welcome goodie bags for the hospital staff and visitors. My Momma has been a great help!

Message to Robert From Mommy: Hi my little guy! Well, here we are. We have made it through another week together with you in my tummy. You will officially be a May baby. I'm SO very ready to meet and hold you! I can't wait to hear your first cry and look into your eyes. I feel like a little child before Christmas! Hurry up Robbie, we all want to meet you! :) Love Momma

My Pregnancy progress throughout the 39 almost 40 weeks!
