Pregnancy Update: Week 39 & 40


Finally posting my last pregnancy update. By the time I recorded the video below, I was so done being pregnant and really to get this show on the road! Check out the full recap and highlights below.


Week 39

  • Week 39 was my last week at work.
  • Weekly Dr Appt – baby is estimated to be over 8 lb. I am 50% effaced, but not dilated nor fully dropped.
  • It’s become hard to move around and be as active.
  • Spent time with friends over the weekend while I could.

Week 40

  • Finally on maternity leave and not a moment too soon as all I wanted to do was nap.
  • Weekly Dr. Appt -baby is now estimated to be over 9 lbs. I’m 70% effaced and the baby dropped completely.
  • Non-stress test: ultrasound showed baby moving around quite a bit and sucking on hand. I have a large amount of amnio fluid, but still in the normal range.
  • It was hard for the nurse to take the baby’s resting heart rate since he/she was moving so much.
  • I became incredibly swollen in my knuckles and feet this week.

We'd love to hear what you think!
