41 Weeks Pregnant

Hey there! It’s me again…still no baby but I’m pretty sure he’ll be coming out within the next day or so. I went to my doc appointment today and got a foley bulb inserted to help speed up the process. If nothing happens tonight then I’ll be going back in the morning to get this party started…say a prayer for me!! Anyway, I figured I would take this time to get in one more prego update in before he makes his appearance 😉

How Far Along? 41 weeks and 4 days

Total Weight Gain/Measurements: I’ve never actually mentioned this before but in total I’ve gained about 55lbs. Wow, just saying that makes me go crazy!! 

Maternity Clothes: No thanks, I’m over those. Even went in Motherhood Maternity last week and walked back out. I’m ready to buy some normal clothes. 

Stretch Marks: Yeah and I swear they multiply every other day…not a good look! 

Sleep: Very uncomfortable.

Best Moment This Week: I’m hoping his birth will be the highlight 😉

Miss Anything? At 41+ weeks prego, I miss it all.

Movement: He is still very active, even though I know he has to be out of space in there.

Food Cravings: Not really, I have noticed more of a sweet tooth lately though.  

Symptoms: Nothing new that I haven’t already experienced. Lately tired and crabby are at the top the list, over it! 

Labor Signs: Well I think I lost my mucus plug this afternoon (sorry TMI) and I’ve been cramping/contracting since I left the doc office earlier.  

Looking Forward To: Finally holding baby boy in my arms…I cannot wait!!!!!

    Hi Gabe and Chad (and Oscar)! I have been watching your videos for a while and have completely fallen in love with your family!

Gabe, I hope you have a quick and safe delivery and I hope Chad doesn't pass out :). Chad Ryan is truly blessed to have you both as parents (and Oscar as a big bro)! Say hi to Nana, Mom and Gracie! Gracie will make a great Aunt – Suzanne in the ATL
