Week 39 – Baby #2


How far along? 39 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 23.5 lbs. according to doctor’s scale.

Maternity clothes? Yes. So close to no more maternity clothes I have actually started putting them in tubs.

Stretch marks? No

Sleep: Sleep has been worse. I am getting up about every 2 hours to pee. Guess it is my body preparing for a hungry baby.

Best moment this week: Finishing work. Hearing the baby’s heartbeat. Finding out we are moving up my c-section date. 

Miss Anything? Everything normal. Hopefully in a few weeks, post surgery I will feel more normal! Can’t wait.

Movement: I finally figured out what is sticking out of my sides…feet. And in my ribs is a little booty.

Food cravings: Wine…beer…please!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Some days I am sick but I think it just from my body not having enough room.

Feelings: Excited and nervous all at the same time. Can’t believe I will be meeting my baby girl tomorrow. 

Gender: GIRL! Sweet Addison Monroe.

Belly Button in or out? In.

Wedding rings on or off? On. Made it the entire pregnancy with it on this time!

Looking forward to: I am looking forward to meeting my precious daughter. I am looking forward to Mason meeting his sister!! He is so excited and I know he will be great big brother and I just cannot wait.

Due Date: We are scheduled for April 21st for my c-section.


  1. Can't believe it!! So exciting! I'll be thinking of you and praying for an easy delivery and recovery. Can't wait to see pictures of sweet baby Addison!!

  2. I'm sure she's here by now so- Congratulations! I hope you're recovering well, enjoying your new baby, and adjusting to having 2 children. I can't wait to see pics!


About Us

My photo
Michael and I have been together since 2006. We met in college at the University of Arkansas and began our life together. We bought a house and moved to Fayetteville from the Chicagoland area in November 2009. We were married in 2010 and had our first child, a boy, in 2013. Our favorite thing to do together is travel and we have gotten the opportunity to go to lots of fun places. We are working, breathing, playful parents. Our fur baby and child are the center of our crazy life, but we wouldn't have it any other way.
