38 weeks & baby's sleeping arrangements.

This is the cutest thing ever! It is a sleep sheep that hangs on the outside of the end of the crib with velcro. It plays a variety of soothing sounds to help baby fall asleep, including sounds of the womb. I also added a few more pictures at the end of this post to give you a sneak peek into little roo's nursery.

38 week update.

Little Roo is the length of a leek!

How far along? 38 weeks.
Total weight gain? 26 lbs, I gained 1lb back from the 2lbs I lost last week!
Belly size? I didn't get to measure again.
Stretch marks? No new ones. Still lotioning up my itchy belly.
Baby's sex? Girl!
Size of baby? She was still measuring at 36 weeks during our appointment yesterday.
Movement? Still wiggling around at every chance she gets!
What is your baby doing? She now has a firm grasp and her organs have matured. She is ready to arrive any day now!
What is your body doing? Maintaining those Braxton Hicks contractions! My stomach is almost constantly hard from contractions and getting ready for my cervix to soften. Setting the stage for baby's arrival!
Belly button in or out? Of course it's still flat.
Happy or moody most of the time? Is "impatient" an option!? :)
Symptoms? I wish she would drop already! I've been having lots of contractions for the past two weeks. My midwife has actually felt them at our last 3 appointments when feeling my stomach. Sunday I had an uncomfortable episode while leaving work. I was getting cramps and my entire stomach was hard for the last 20 minutes of work. It was pretty uncomfortable to keep bending over so I was relived to be out of work soon. I noticed the pressure in my pelvis increasing on the way to my car and my hips were starting to hurt as well. However, sitting down was not what my body had in mind to deal with the increasing pressure and contractions. The ride home was not fun! At home I propped my feet up and drank a lot of water and the contractions stopped. Talk about false labor!
Maternity clothes? Planning on wearing the ones I got for the next few weeks.
Sleep? Same as always. I groan a little when I wake up to roll over, lol.
Food cravings? Nothing that I recall.
Anything make you feel queasy or sick? Nothing.
Miss anything? I can't think of anything right now.
Looking forward to? Meeting my little one, of course! I'm in no hurry though, I'd love for her to grow as much as she can in there and make her arrival when she is ready. I know it will be soon!
Best moment this week? Setting up most of Roo's nursery with my mom and washing baby's tiny clothes! I also finally ordered my breast pump!

A few goodies from roo's nursery!

Totoro (handmade by my mom!) is keeping baby's bassinet warm until she arrives.
I love it so much and can't wait to watch my little girl fall asleep in there.

My baby girl's crib for when she outgrows her bassinet! There is no mattress in it yet, but I'm not worried since we're using the bassinet for a while. I made a little set up to show off a few of the gifts I received at my baby shower (though all of the gifts were so lovely and thoughtful!).



  1. OMG can you say teared up? Holy geesh wow. I am so excited and I had fun helping with the nursery and her little tiny clothes. So looking forward to snuggling her right up.

    1. Thank you so much for helping me! We got a lot accomplished that day and I couldn't have done it without you! She still needs curtains though! Either solid colored black-out curtains or sheer curtains with shades behind them. Hmm. Also! I am making an important special touch for her nursery tomorrow on my day off. I really hope it comes out how I am imagining and can't wait to post pictures for everyone to see it after she is born. (I have to wait to show anyone because I'm not giving away her name just yet!)
