37 weeks

011
picture taken at 37 weeks 2 days

- Baby girl could make her arrival any day now and be totally fine! Let's all say a little prayer that she comes sooner rather than later, ha ha!

- I'm still having braxton hicks regularly. I notice an increase when I work out or when I've done a lot in a day. It's amazing to think that my body just knows to practice so that it's ready for labor when the time comes!

- My heartburn has definitely taken a turn for the worst this past week. I hope that means labor is just around the corner? ha ha

- Baby girl got her first Christmas ornament! My sweet friend surprised me with it and I love it! I'm still having a hard time believing I'll have my very own baby for Christmas... aahhh!!!

- I understand now why women get to a point in their pregnancy where they are just DONE! Eric and I are ready to be done (and he's not that one that is carrying her inside his body, ha!) because I'm in quite a bit of pain each day. But we are mostly just so anxious and excited to meet our baby girl! Even though I'm so over being pregnant... I know I'd do it again and again to bring this little girl into our family! We love her so much and can't wait to snuggle and love on her!

You're right - it's SO worth it! And I know you can't imagine, but the love you feel right now for her? That's nothing compared to what you'll feel once she's finally in your arms!!!! :) But you'll miss the kicks and jabs from the inside too... enjoy these last few weeks!!!

Julie said...

So very worth it - hope to hear about the arrival soon! :)

I know it's easy to get anxious! I'm tellin' you though to enjoy the moments. It's amazing the bond between a mom and baby that's made in the belly. I felt almost empty when nick was born, I was happy to hold him but missed those kicks! I'm a pain in the you know what now, so I can imagine after a few more months my husband is gunna be calling the doctor asking when we can induce labor LOL

You look SO cute!! I'll cross my fingers that this little baby comes sooner rather than later:)

Katie said...

Your bump is too cute (pretty sure I say that every comment). You are such a cute prego though!!

I get heartburn all the time and I'm not and never have been pregnant. I hope that doesnt mean bad things for when I do get pregnant. Chugging sprite helps for me. Burp it all out!!

O my goodness! I have been gone for wayy too long! You look GREAT and 37 weeks!! About 37 weeks I was completely over pregnancy also, at that point you just want your precious miracle! So happy for you and your Christmas baby! :)

Liesl said...

Cute, cute, cute, but I also understand just wanting your little girl here and it to be done! :)

Shauna said...

It's all very exciting! I am hoping your sweet girl comes early too, not too early but enough to give you a break!

I love the quilts that were made for you. So wonderful to have genuine homemade blankets that were hand crafted with love.

You look great. Great job for staying in shape and being healthy, you are a great example. Take great care and happy xmas spirit.

Ahhh I'm SO excited for you!!!!! I can't wait to see her adorable little face!!

Kenz said...

Blessings Courtney! I hope you have a quick, safe, and relatively pain free labor!

That Girl said...

I hope she stays in there! I know like it seems you want her here ASAP, but those last 3 weeks are where the brain development comes in, the lungs mature even further, and her fat builds. All of which are going to be really important for keeping her healthy this winter/flu season.

Jana Faith said...

You are just as cute as ever and what a lucky baby to have sub a loving mommy and daddy! Hope you start feeling better soon.

ajs {of MN} said...

Haha that's how Zoe was born early. I was so done. Well , the doctor said he didn't know what to do with me because of the Pre-ecclampsia. I told him to "GET HER OUT OF ME". He obliged.
