39 Weeks and Counting

Dress: French Connection | Button Down and Tights: Target | Belt: Forever 21 | Boots: Zara | Watch: Oh, Hello Friend

Yup, we’re still waiting for our little A to arrive, soaking up the last little bits of being a twosome.  I have to admit though, we’re lazy as ever and trying to get as much sleep as possible (even though I have to wake up multiple times a night to go to the bathroom).  It’s funny how in these last few weeks there’s an increase in strangers that talk to me about my baby and ask when the due date is.  Guess I truly do look like I’m ready to pop, and that I sure am!  Whenever I look down at my belly, I am amazed at just how big it is.  When I was born, I was only 5 lbs. 13 oz. and my husband was  7 lbs. at birth.  There’s no way this baby looks like he is less than 7 lbs, haha.

Bump update: 39 weeks, 2 days

– 2 cm dilated, 80% effaced at last appointment

– spicy foods, bouncing a ton on that exercise ball, walking as much as i can, and eating pineapple are my current inducing labor techniques

– wearing my yoga jeggings day in and day out, luckily i have 2 pairs!

–  baby movements are more shifting around rather than punches/kicks

How much did you weigh when you were born?

    You’re SO close now! Can’t believe it. Maybe you’ll have a Christmas baby? Don’t be too worried about a big baby.. the predictions are usually way off. 🙂 Glad you’re enjoying these last few days as a twosome, but three will be amazing. xoxo

    I bet you’re getting so excited–he’s almost here!! You’re looking adorable, as usual–what a cute dress! And I was 8 pounds when I was born–a couple of weeks late.

  3. December 17, 2011 / 9:43 pm

    Oh my goodness, how exciting! I was 8lbs 6oz, my poor Mom!

  4. December 17, 2011 / 10:27 pm

    P.S. I tried EVERYTHING you have to induce my labor because I went to almost 41 weeks and was soooo done being pregnant! Lol I ended up having my membranes striped/massaged and a couple hours later…my contractions really began, my water broke that night and by 11am the next day, our little man was born! 🙂 I know you still have about a week left but if they end up wanting to induce you (hopefully not), it’s better to get your membranes striped rather than taking medication to jump start your labor 🙂 …just food for thought if it comes down to it!

  5. December 17, 2011 / 11:06 pm

    friend… I think I was 7 lbs and a few oz. My sweet little Charlotte was a premie, and was just a little over 2 lbs!!! I can’t wait to see your little one’s face on your blog! Also, I need you to message me your address when you have a chance.

  6. December 17, 2011 / 11:53 pm

    You look darling! It won’t be long now!

    xo – g

    (I think I was 6 lbs. 11 oz)

  7. December 17, 2011 / 11:55 pm

    Oh my gah! So close! I’m 33 weeks and 4 days and I too am so done with being pregnant. Slowest year of my life. When I was born I was 7 lbs. 4 oz. I’m really wondering how big my baby is going to get though because my husband was like 11 lbs.! Congrats sweetie! I wish you the best birth experience! Do the same for me will ya? lol!

  8. December 18, 2011 / 12:19 am

    Love this outfit and I LOVE your hair!

    I was 6 pounds 4 ounces.

  9. December 18, 2011 / 12:50 am

    you’re almost there!!! wish you the best these next few days!!!

  10. December 18, 2011 / 5:01 am

    Baby time! That is so exciting. You look so stylish, too, I have to add! I love how you belted the jacket – the look really flows. And you know what? Yoga pants are definitely the way to do it. Why not be comfortable when you’re going into the final stretch?


  11. December 18, 2011 / 7:27 am

    you are looking fantastic! so exciting!!
    i was 6.7 lbs when i was born 🙂

  12. December 18, 2011 / 7:33 am

    You’re almost there! You were such a tiny baby! I was 5lbs 13oz and my husband was 6lbs. I actually just had my twin girls last Saturday! They came a wee bit early at 35wks and 4 days. They were tiny as well (4lbs 14oz and 3lbs 12oz).

  13. December 18, 2011 / 7:45 am

    You look so cute. I was an emergency C-sectino and I was 6 lbs. I can’t remember how much my husband weighed. I want to say between 7 and 8 lbs.

  14. December 18, 2011 / 8:43 am

    I think I told you on Twitter that I was 7lb 13oz…I’ve gone crazy. I was 6lb 13oz and my son was 6lb 1oz. My husband was 5lb, but he was premature.

  15. December 18, 2011 / 9:41 am

    I think I was 7 lbs and some change but both my babies came out 8 lbs 11 oz. I look at big babies as a proud accomplishment plus they come out so much cuter since they’re nice and plump instead of all wrinkly so don’t you worry! Hope you have a smooth delivery!

  16. December 18, 2011 / 9:55 am

    Hello, I’m a new follower!

    I was 4 lbs, but I was 6 weeks early and an emergency c-section. Don’t worry, though! I have a friend who went to 41 weeks and her little one was only 7.5 lbs. Such a cutie! You’re going to do great when it’s your turn!

  17. December 18, 2011 / 12:14 pm

    Aww, you look great! I was 7lbs 8oz but my son was 9lbs 14oz. My mother in law said all her boys were huge and I guess I was passed along that trait. Lucky me! Ha ha

  18. December 18, 2011 / 3:09 pm

    I was just under 6 pounds, so I was a little baby!

  19. December 18, 2011 / 3:44 pm

    only YOU could look so stinking gorgeous and adorable at 39 weeks. any day now!!!

  20. December 18, 2011 / 7:47 pm

    Your belly is so prefect! Does look like you are ready! Hope your baby comes soon! My son was 8lbs 5oz, so he was huge! lol.

  21. December 18, 2011 / 7:51 pm

    You look great! Maybe eat some eggplant parmesan…I heard that works! I was 7.14 oz, and my son was 6 pounds even. I feel like this baby may be bigger, but we’ll see, I still have a little ways to go, I’m 34 weeks today.

    You are so cute! You look great! I hope your sweet guy decides to arrive soon! I weighed 7lbs6oz when I was born. My first weighed 7lbs3oz, my second 7lbs5oz and then my third was 8lbs15oz! All 21in long. Haha! My first two were early though and my last was late. You never know how big or small they’ll be. 🙂

  23. December 18, 2011 / 9:19 pm

    oh my goodness – LOVE the pattern of this dress, friend! and look at this big ole cute belly – he is ready to come on out, isn’t he?!! yay!!

  24. December 18, 2011 / 10:12 pm

    Looking gorgeous, Sandy. That baby will be here SO SOON! Can’t wait to e-meet him.

    I was 1 pound 7 ounces when I was born. I was born 3 months premature. I am praying that your baby boy comes soon!!

  26. December 19, 2011 / 12:03 am

    adore your skirt! Hope your baby comes soon 🙂

  27. December 19, 2011 / 6:27 am

    Girl you make pregnancy look good! I was a beast at the end of my pregnancies, both of the! But my boys were 8lb 10oz and 9lb 4oz, so they were big!! Of course, I was no joke, I was a 10 pounder!

  28. December 19, 2011 / 9:27 am

    Girl you are rocking the full term look! Can’t believe it’s almost time! To make you feel better, my sister-in-law was HUGE (I mean HUGE) and her baby was 4lbs 13oz (full term, not a premie or anything!). So don’t let the big belly scare you. =)

    I think I was around 7.5 lbs. Not a small one, but pretty average! I think as long as you’re under 8 you should be fine. 😉 I had a friend whose nephew just came in over 10lbs! He’s a cute little chubby guy.

    I’ll be thinking of you over the next couple of weeks!


  29. December 19, 2011 / 1:45 pm

    You look beautiful! And…. you are almost done! HORRAY

  30. December 19, 2011 / 1:48 pm

    You are too cute! I was 8.1 when I was born, and then my brother was 8.9….My poor poor mother!

    Hope your babe gets here soon! 🙂

  31. December 19, 2011 / 2:29 pm

    YOU LOok lovely!

    i don’t know how much i weighed, but Zoe was 8 pounds 9 ounces and Pia was ab even 8 pounds.

    🙂 keep eating spicy foods!

  32. December 19, 2011 / 2:49 pm

    Girl, you truly look fabulous! I never made it to 39 weeks, but you are completely rocking it! I weighed 7 lbs 6 ounces when I was born and our little odd defying miracle of a girl weighed 5 lbs 13 ounces when she was born.
    Love & light to you doll!!!!

  33. December 19, 2011 / 5:11 pm

    I was 6lbs 6oz. when I was born. I was a few weeks past the due date, so I’m thinking the doctors were off when they estimated the date – because that’s tiny for being weeks late 🙂

  34. December 19, 2011 / 5:37 pm

    so exciting! When I was 39 weeks+, I was definitely not as cute as you appear to be 😉

  35. December 19, 2011 / 6:26 pm

    you look gorgeous, Sandy!! i love the print of this top and the layered denim on top is perfect.

    and i was only 6lbs 6oz when i was born!

    cute & little

  36. December 19, 2011 / 6:48 pm

    SUch a cute belly you got there!


  37. December 19, 2011 / 7:14 pm

    This must be such an exciting time for you and your family! I was just under 6 lbs. when I was born. Any bigger and I would’ve had to come out via Caesarean. My mom is a very petite Asian lady 🙂

  38. December 19, 2011 / 8:18 pm

    hi, sandy!
    can’t believe you’re almost there! you look stunning, and your belly is such a perfect shape. i wish you all the best with your delivery… and seeing you makes me want to have another! 🙂

    have a great week!

  39. December 19, 2011 / 9:35 pm

    You are absolutely adorable!!! Hang in there! All three of my babies weighed 9 lbs+. I weighed 10 and my husband weighed 9 so the dr. told us we would have big babies….and we did!!! A wonderful adventure is just around the corner! I wish you the best!!!

  40. December 19, 2011 / 9:37 pm

    I would also like to mention that my mom is Chinese so she is very petite! She pushed all 10 lbs of me out….amazing!

  41. December 19, 2011 / 11:28 pm

    Adorable!!! You are glowing 😀

    Awww… I am sure that your beautiful baby boy will weigh around 8lbs 😀
    I weighed 6 pounds when I was born and my son also weighed 6 pounds when he was born ! Funny 😀

    Your almost there!! Yay and you are a trooper!!!

  45. December 20, 2011 / 7:56 pm

    Wow! I cannot believe how close you are! You look lovely pregnant. I can’t wait to check the bog one day with the baby announcement. Happy Holidays, Sandy!

  46. December 22, 2011 / 11:06 am

    come on out baby A…we wanna meet ya!

  47. December 22, 2011 / 12:12 pm

    The waiting game must suck. There might be a huge chance that A will be a Christmas baby.

    I can’t wait to hear the good news when A is finally born.

  48. December 22, 2011 / 1:35 pm

    Awww so excited for you. Hope you have a wonderful holidays!

    Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don’t need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can’t do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways.;,-^
