37 Weeks - Full Term!!!

We made it, week 37, which means we are technically considered full term today! 
Wooooo hoooo!
It's a good thing too because things are continuing to progress!  I had my weekly doctors check up yesterday and it seems as though we're up to 2cm dilated now and 80% effaced!
There are no guarantees in pregnancy, but it is all good signs that this baby is wanting to come sooner than later!  
Bryan and I spent all last weekend organizing the house, putting away winter clothes, getting rid of the last cardboard boxes and finishing up the nursery!  I feel MUCH better about bringing a baby home this week than I did last week!  I have quite a few pictures to share this week so I'll just get to the good stuff...

Size of baby: 6 1/3 lbs and a bit over 19 inches!  Head to heel like a stalk of Swiss chard.

What I miss:  I would say sleeping, but I know that's not coming back any time soon, so I'm just going to say "Summer in a glass".  This is terminology for a delicious summer time cocktail, and with all the warm weather we've been having lately I'm ready to start enjoying those delectable treats again!  I have an arsenal of new recipes to try out just waiting on my Pinterest board!

Best Moment this week: Getting the house better organized and putting the baby's room together! 
What baby likes AKA cravings: A cheese burger and french fries.  That's what I wanted last night at least.  I didn't get it :(

Movement:  MUCH less!  I get a little activity here and there, but nowhere near what it used to be.  No room left for the baby to move around!

Sleep:  It sucks.  I usually fall into a good sleep around 4am...and then my alarm goes off. 

Looking Forward to:Oh man, I guess the baby coming!  I feel like it's any day now (even though I know it could still technically be longer).  I just have this feeling it's coming soon.  Terrifying and exciting all at the same time!
Picture:Here are lots of pictures from this past week!

We had our priorities straight during our Costco run and picked up the essentials first!  Just stocking up for post baby ;)

Car seat in place...CHECK!

 I had ordered a DVD I heard great things about called "Happiest Baby on the Block", and Bryan, Gunnar and I watched it the other night.  Here is the scene I came home to the next day.  Apparently Gunnar did not like the DVD. 

Some Belly Pics

We couldn't resist this corniness...


Here are some baby room pics!

Going home outfits...which one will we use??

The two creepy dolls were actually made by my great grandmother and the little bear in between them was "Bed Bear", my favorite stuffed animal as a child.

Just a little disclaimer: I do realize this room is more masculine than feminine...I have plans of incorporating pink if "it's" a "she".  Girls like navy and white though also!


  1. Kel..I am so happy for you and Bryan!! Everything looks GREAT and I can't wait to meet baby Coble:) You are so cute preggers!! See you soon!

  2. LOVE all the pictures!! i'm just going to throw my vote in, i give you 2 weeks tops until this baby makes his/her appearance!

  3. thank goodness you got those essentials ;) and did gunnar eat the actual dvd or just the case cause i was looking forward to borrowing that...can't wait for baby c! i'm on baby alert all weekend, i think he/she is coming SOON!
