Happy Due Date, Baby Girl!

Only five percent of babies are actually born on their due date. Most come after. I was really hoping Juice Drop would be part of the five--but alas, she has decided to make her debut a little late (unless she makes a last minute appearance tonight!).

I honestly don't have a whole lot to say so I'll leave you with my weekly update picture and questionnaire and a few pics of our day celebrating our baby girl.

 How far along? 40 Weeks
Total weight gain: 33 lbs
Maternity clothes? Most of the time. Seriously I'm running out of clothes, I wear the same things all the time and I'm so ready to fit into pre-pregnancy clothes again! 
Stretch marks? Nope. 
Sleep: Horrible! I've been so anxious I'd sleep right through labor and I've been counting contractions at night.
Best moment this week: The joy we experienced when we thought we were really going into labor.
Miss Anything? Sleep! But I know it won't be coming back anytime soon.
Movement: Still like crazy!
Food cravings: nada
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: Besides the false labor on Sunday night, I've had pretty regular contractions since last night and I was 2 cm dilated when the doc checked today!!...really hoping this is the beginning of labor and not the false kind! :) 
Symptoms: Peeing ALL THE TIME (even when hardly anything comes out!), memory lapse, clumsiness, swollen fingers and toes, heartburn
Belly Button in or out? Outie!
Wedding rings on or off? Off but on a necklace.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! 
Looking forward to: Seeing her beautiful face, hearing her heartbeat without a doppler, and seeing Travis hold his daughter :)

We tried a new restaurant called Pizza Fusion to celebrate...delish!! We bought her a dress I've had my eye for a while and a hilarious book I think she'll enjoy if she's got a humor like her parents :)


  1. I just recently started following your blog, and I've really enjoyed seeing your story! I can't wait to have kids of my own! Good luck on your delivery and I hope your baby girl arrives soon!

  2. Just the title of this book made me laugh. Oh the anticipation for Juice Drop is HUGE! I can't wait to see her and hear her sweet name...even though I will still occasionally refer to her as little juicy =0)

  3. My baby boy was a week late. On his due date I wrote him a letter and started a little journal to him. Love the yellow dress ;)

  4. Love the yellow dress! I eyeballed a yellow dress too till the end and finally bought it also. Congratulations on your little one! And look into the double swaddle if ever needed <3
