39 Weeks (11/16/12)

How far along: 39 weeks

Size of baby: Around 20 inches and 7.25 pounds. About the size of a small watermelon. I'm going to go ahead and guess that she is going to be 20 inches and 7.6 pounds.

Weight gain: 26 pounds. I have lost a pound since last week but doctor didn't say anything and she said my stomach was still growing so all is good.

Progress: Still 50% and 1cm. Doctor wasn't concerned about her not being ready and we are still on for our induction!

Maternity clothes: Of course. The dress I am wearing in this pic isn't maternity but I bought it big.

Stretch marks: No new ones. Got more cocoa butter lotion and going to continue putting it on after I have her so know new ones try to show up as my body starts going back to normal.

Sleep: Potty breaks every 2-3 hours throughout the night and I am usually wide awake for about an hour in the middle of the night. I was hoping to sleep in this weekend, today and tomorrow but I am too anxious and feel like I have 1,000 things to get done. I am going to TRY and sleep in or at least take a nap tomorrow in case I labor all tomorrow night.

Symptoms: Oh the back and rib pain. I don't notice it till I sit down so as long as I am up and staying busy, I feel good. My stomach is hard as a rock though so I know the poor girl is out of room in there.

Best moment this week: It's going to be Wednesday when our baby girl finally enters the world!!

Movement: Yes. Somehow she is still finding room to move.

Food cravings: Saturday I had to have skittles and last night I had to run to Walgreen's to get some chocolate. Other then that though, I haven't had much of an appetite. I have had to force myself to eat 3 meals the past 2 days.

Gender: GIRL!!!! Collins Cate Lorson

What I miss: Sleeping on my back and stomach, bending over and just being able to move without being uncomfortable.

Milestones: Tomorrow night at 8:30pm we will be checking into the hospital. They will start me on cervidil tomorrow night and then start my pitocin at 6-7am on Wednesday. I am ssooo excited/scared/nervous/anxious/emotional/etc. I am scared of the labor part but I know it will all be worth it once I see and hear Collins.  Please keep us in your prayers!


  1. I can't believe she is almost here. Crazy crazy crazy. They gave me Ambien the night I got my cervadil so I would actually sleep, so you might look into that. Although I would suggest taking it right when you want to go to sleep. I didn't realize how quickly it would knock me out. Just ask Christopher how well that worked out for me... :)

  2. Good luck! I can't imagine how excited you are to meet her tomorrow! :)

  3. Good luck Sarah! I am soo excited for you. Praying for a quick healthy delivery and baby.
