39 weeks

At 39 weeks, our little one is about 20 inches long and weighs approximately 7 pounds - roughly as much as a mini-watermelon. That explains why my belly looks like I swallowed a watermelon!

While my mom was here, we put some decor on the nursery walls. I found this Classic Pooh wall hanging panel at the fabric store, but she made it for us since it was hard for me to schedule time at the sewing machine while being on partial bed rest. She brought it to us on Sunday so Monday we hung it on the wall over the changing table. For such a simple looking project it was a little more work that we anticipated! However, I'm glad she persevered and I hope the baby will love this project that Grandma made for its nursery.

This adorable blanket came with our crib bedding set, and upon taking it out of the packaging the other night, I remembered that using a big blanket like this in a newborn's crib isn't recommended. Darn! It's too cute to keep folded up in the closet and just hanging it over the side of the crib we'd lose half the picture. So up on the wall it went - behind the crib so it is still near the rest of the bedding that it coordinates with. I'm so happy with how it looks that I may leave it here indefinitely!

My doctors appointment for this week is tomorrow afternoon. I've been having Braxton Hicks contractions, although no more than one or two a day and I'm not even sure that I'm having them every day. They don't hurt so I don't think that I'm always aware they're happening. I'm eager to see what they have to say at the appointment tomorrow - it is the standard ultrasound, non-stress test, and exam. We're praying that everything is still good with the baby and that we'll get to meet him/her before too much longer!
