How far along? 39 weeks! Baby Rivera is 20 inches, give or take an inch or so, and probably a little over 7 pounds!
Total weight gain/loss? 23 pounds! I lost a pound this week, which is common late in pregnancy.
Feeling Sick/Signs of Labor? I am so ready for this little girl to be out! I am tired, nauseous, and the heartburn is driving me crazy! I am having a lot of contractions, but unfortunately they are doing nothing. I have been 0.5 cm dilated for a month now. I feel like I have tried everything to get this labor going, but my efforts have failed. So sad. She will be here soon though!
Clothing? I have still been able to utilize some of my sundresses this week. They are so comfortable. I am so happy that I did not have to buy a single pair of full panel maternity pants my whole pregnancy. In actuality, I bought very few maternity items. Yay me. Oh how excited I am to get back into my old clothes.
Stretch Marks? Nope.
Sleep? My sleep schedule is routine now. I fall asleep usually by 10pm and am up every morning no later then 0730am. I wake up 2-3 times to use the little girl’s room, and sometimes an additional time due to uncomfortable contractions.
Movement? I still love every one of her movements. She is such an active little girl.
Cravings? ICE. ICE. and more ICE. Crushed ice is my favorite thing ever!
What I miss? The ability to breathe deeply. It is so difficult to catch my breath with this big belly hogging up all of the room where my other internal organs used to reside.
Upcoming Events? My Daughters big debut!!! I am scheduled for a Cesarean Section on Thursday if she doesn’t come before that! I can’t wait!
Best moment of the week? Spending one on one time with John, and enjoying our last few days as a twosome.

How far along? 38 weeks! Baby Rivera is 20 inches, give or take an inch or so, and close to 7 pounds!
Total weight gain/loss? 24 pounds!
Feeling Sick/Signs of Labor? Feeling tired and low on energy. I am up bright and early every morning, anxious to get my day going, but I always hit a wall around 4pm and have no desire to do anything. I continue to contract, but nothing is happening from them yet.
Clothing? I have been able to utilize a lot of my sundresses over stretchy pants lately because the weather has been so nice. I just can’t wait to shop once this baby comes out. I am getting annoyed with having to dress this belly everyday.
Stretch Marks? Nope.
Sleep? Sleep has been okay lately. I wake up once or twice to use the little ladies room, but I am able to fall back asleep quickly. I do wake up at 7am every single morning. I no longer have the ability to sleep in.
Movement? I have a racehorse growing inside of me.
Cravings? I still love chewing ice. It is amazing.
Gender? All princess! I can’t wait to meet her. I think she is going to look like daddy!
What I miss? Not feeling fatigued and worn out. I may never have tons of energy again (because I will be chasing after a baby), but I just want to feel like I can walk up the stairs without feeling short of breath.
Upcoming Events? I continue to have my weekly non-stress tests and OB appointments. Maybe she will show up this week!!
Best moment of the week? It was a great week. I celebrated my 30th birthday with my closest friends and family. It can only get better from here.
