Baby Bump Week 39

This could be the very last bump update post! I'm definitely huge now. There is a full sized baby in there. I feel legs and arms moving around all the time and I'm stretched out to the max. I don't really feel any signs of labour coming on. Lots of Braxton Hicks but I can barely feel them. The only way I know I'm having them is that I feel a bit flushed in the cheeks and then I touch my tummy and realize it's like a rock. I've gained just about 30lbs since the start of pregnancy but I think some of the end of this weight gain might be water weight since I'm a bit "swollen" and my wedding rings are off because my hands are a bit puffy. Other than that I'm just working away and waiting for signs of real labour!

I went for a little walk last night and mom snapped some pics when we got back...

Can't wait to hold you on the outside Baby T.!
Looking very large and in charge in this pic!

I'm trying to keep both my nerves and excitement in check and just stay calm and relaxed for the next week or so but don't be fooled- I'm over the moon excited to meet you. I can't wait to see what you look like. To be honest I can't even really picture it. I guess I picture you with a head of dark hair- but that's about all I can envision. I can't wait to see daddy hold you for the first time. That is the image I'm planning to hold on to during the tougher parts of labour because I think it just might turn out to be one of my favourite moments in life. We love you so much already I can't even imagine what it will be like after we get to look at your cute squished face for the first time.
