Still Pregnant at 39 Weeks


According to Babycenter.com, baby girl weighs a little over 7 lbs. and measures about 20 inches during week 39. Of course, just like every week, I'm hoping this is the last weekly pregnancy update. I'm still trying to stay positive because I am grateful to have her safe and healthy in me, but it's getting harder and harder to "hang in there". I know she will be coming soon. They won't let me go past 41.5 weeks, but even that seems so far away right now.

It seems like every week there is a new problem for me to handle with being pregnant. I take comfort in knowing that my moodiness about still being pregnant is totally normal. Nobody likes the last weeks of pregnancy because you feel so ready to just HAVE your baby already and be done with pregnancy.

I started having sciatic nerve pain down the back of my left side pretty consistently. Nothing I have tried has worked to put me into labor and it's hard to just helplessly wait for nature to take its course. I know it's in Gods hands when she will come into this world. I just pray that things go smoothly and that she will be healthy and adjust quickly to life outside of the womb.

Here is Babycenters picture for this week and it's pretty much right on point. That's about how big I am. I don't think I can get any bigger and baby girl is not really growing anymore either. Just taking her sweet time! ;-)

Well, even the baby doesn't look very comfortable. Maybe she just likes being all cozy. ;) Hope you find some time to relax and be comfy! Looking forward to any updates!

Oh I'm sorry Shelley! I hope your baby girl comes asap!! I can't wait to "meet" her :) (but I'm sure you're even more excited haha!)

My goodness, it's truly a miracle that a baby can pass through that tiny little passageway. Amazing how it expands and contracts just for that moment. Best of luck to you! Hang in there. :)
