39 weeks

Okay, 39.5 weeks. Not that I’m counting the days or anything. I’m a proper pregnant lady in waiting at this point. Yesterday I hit the pool in the middle of the day, got a pedicure, went to the market… you know. Today is reserved for yoga and perhaps cleaning out the linen closet? I think this means I’m ready.

Couldn’t resist a few photos with my little guy. Could be his last day as an only, after all. He was a little uncertain about the tripod and camera timer, but then of course he wanted more once I’d put everything away.

My dress is from the nice people at Seraphine, (thank you!). It’s really sweet, very reasonably priced, and guess what? It’s supposed to work nicely as a nursing dress too, which I’m really excited about. Last time I was woefully unprepared for nursing. Not the act of nursing, that was fantastic. But the wardrobe! I had nothing that worked for nursing any place but my bedroom. This time I’m going to be such a chic new mama.

So here we are. Just a few days before my official due date. A word to those of you expecting your second… all that stuff they tell you about being early instead of late? Don’t get too attached to it.

Though I have to say I’m kind of savoring these last few days with nearly nothing to do. It almost feels like vacation.

PS. Three posts in three days. Gold star!
PPS. Why do little boys always have to have a cut/scab on their noses?? We are in a perpetual state of new boo-boos, it seems.

Dress by Seraphine Maternity.

    You both look great. I love his little surprised face. He’s not (most likely) going to remember this, but I remember (I was 5) waiting for my brother to be born. I didn’t know what he would be and it was like Christmas. I was so excited.

    Please do a post on chic new mama clothes! I am 2 weeks postpartum and I have yet to figure out nursing clothing that allows me to leave the house without looking like a total slob or exposing large amounts of skin.

    You definitely sound ready, especailly with those last ‘nesting’ instincts kicking in. Good luck.

    Almost there! You look really lovely! I had my baby at 38 weeks by c-sec, so never got this far!

    Dash looks so sweet, and completely unaware of what is in store. Good luck, friend! I can’t wait to hear all about it.

    I’m due July 5, and contractions started last night, I had membranes stripped Friday night (80% effaced and 2 cm dilated, so they stripped and I thought it would happen this weekend), well its Monday…..yes its my first baby so I know for most folks its late but I just had a feeling he would come early. I am still having contractions although they are not close enough yet, and so I am about to go on a walk. I completely understand this feeling of being so antsy and so ready to be done and so eager to meet the little one inside of you. Wow, wishing you luck, wonder and stamina as you head into this journey with #2! -Tammy
