What a difference 39 weeks makes...

Hopefully this will be my last belly pic of this pregnancy. Literally about to BUST at 39 weeks...but, enjoying every last minute of it! It's weird to think that this time next week, I will have a sweet baby in my arms. I will be induced on Monday morning if baby doesn't decide to come before then. I'm officially on maternity leave, which is a great feeling! I did some major nesting today....made a HUGE trip to Wal-Mart and the grocery store to stock up on household items and food. I starting cooking some of our favorite meals that freeze well...hopefully I'll have a couple more days to get all of it done before baby arrives. Tomorrow my house is being deep cleaned...I will feel so good once that is done! Had my last doctors appointment today....everything is still looking good, but no major changes from last week.

39 Weeks...
If this picture grosses you out, I'm sorry. I just want to remember what my belly really looked like! It's truly a miracle that there is a baby in there!

I hear that modesty goes out the window once you've given birth, so I might as well get over it now!

Modesty definitely goes out the window!! I had a group of resident students come in that wanted to watch the doc check me down there and after I had nurses, docs, and all kinds of medical staff in my room I didn't care and figured I would rather them learn from the real deal. ha ha, just doing my part for the future babies those students will deliver.
Today was the day I picked for baby R so I am holding out for the rest of the day:) I am so excited for you guys, enjoy every minute of it!
