Levi's Almost Here! 39 week Update

Our little Levi

I cannot believe it ! I am 39 weeks pregnant with little Levi and the anticipation is killing us! We are so ready for our sweet boy to be born!
These past few weeks have been draining, uncomfortable, stressful and more but now that we're at the finish line I am so grateful to have been able to hold him in my womb for this long safely and healthy.

It's always when you're waiting for something exciting that it seems to take FOREVER, like when I was little and we would drive and hour and a half to go to Disneyland, it always felt like it took all day long just to get there; and then the drive back home felt like minutes! That's pretty much the same way I feel when I am pregnant. The wait meanwhile feels so long but once the baby is born, BAM, the hours turn into seconds and in the blink of an eye your baby goes from newborn to two years old!

38 weeks

Symptoms & Labor Signs

  • Braxton hicks that last hours, yes with pain and discomfort but than fade after a while.
  • A ton of hip pain! 
  • Waddle
  • Insomnia
  • Can't sit for longer that 15-30 min.
  • Dilated to a 3 for a week now & 60% effaced
  • Nausea
  • Congestion and Shortness of breath
  • Loss of Mucus plug
We are progressing but it's been pretty slow. I've had so many people tell me that the second baby comes a lot sooner that your first and that labor and delivery is quicker but I dunno, I think my boy's just find my belly cozy and try and make it their permanent living space! haha

I'm hoping this is my last update for our little Levi, I just honestly cannot wait to hold him and kiss him and smell his newborn smell and have him and Noah together!  We are so excited!
