39 weeks in bullets


Toni and Timmy

  • I’m still pregnant! Technically, I’ve been 9 and 1/2 months pregnant. How cool is that? My doctor’s hunch is that I’ll give birth this weekend. Let’s see if he’s right! Will Timmy be a Leo (Aug. 22) or a Virgo (Aug. 23)? I wonder.
  • Sore is the word for 39. Braxton-Hicks contractions are uncomfortable, and so are pelvis pains. It just all means that my body’s still preparing for Timmy’s entry into the world. I’m trying to be patient with all these aches, as I know they won’t compare to the pain of labor!
  • My weight has now plateaued. The books say your weight stabilizes on the last trimester. True for me. Even if the baby’s growing, my weight hasn’t increased too much. So that makes it a total of about 30 pounds gained throughout my pregnancy. Not bad!
  • Infants are so cute and cuddly! H & I visited the nursery this afternoon, and golly gee, those newborn babies are soooo cute. They’re all so tiny and beautiful! Timmy, I wonder who you’ll look like. Daddy or me? Hehe.
  • If it’s true that bellies are itchy because of baby hair, then Timmy must be growing an Afro. I’m sure it’s just my skin stretching. Boy, does it iiiiiiiiitch. Lotion helps. Temporarily. The rest of the time I just try to massage my belly or distract myself by playing Diner Dash.
  • “All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go…” Baby bag? Check. Mommy bag? Check. Daddy bag? Check.
  • Am I getting impatient? A little bit. I want to meet Timmy already! I’m even excited to go into labor already. I just hope and pray that I won’t have to be induced, that I’ll deliver normally, that Timmy and I both do well. I ask for your positive thoughts and prayers please. :)

    I just saw your comments on my blog–so unexpected because I for sure thought you were in the hospital na! Good luck Toni! I hope Timmy is a Virgo, because they ain’t bad—as you know, my bday is coming up! 😉

    Wow, 9 1/2 months… Timmy, time to come out!
    I’m sending you all the positive vibes I can possibly can across the miles for your safe delivery, Toni. Please please please blog about your birthing experience! And ask your hubby to update your blog once Timmy arrives so we know when to break open the bottle of champagne 😉
    .-= kala´s last blog ..The Goog! =-.

    I’ll definitely blog about my birthing experience!!
    And yep, will ask H to help announce. LOL!

    Wow, anytime now! IN retrospect, I should have waited for Mina to come in naturally. I was just soooo done with being pregnant. But if I knew what I know now, i would have waited and maybe she wouldn’t have come c-section. My body wasn’t ready.

    Good luck Toni, I’m so excited for you and your hubby. Yeah keep being positive. You have a very normal pregnancy and that means normal through the end. Little Timmy will be here soon! :-)

    Thank you mariaR! :)

    have a safe delivery! i remember being very impatient during my last couple of weeks.

    I am officially impatient. Haha!

    Hey, how cute is this? My keycode is MOMMY! :)

    Anyway, I am praying for you Toni, that you may have a safe delivery and speedy recovery. I really hope everything goes as planned and you deliver normally. Ilang tulog na lang!!! I’m so excited for you and your hubby!

    On a different note, you might want to try Palmer’s Soothing Oil for dry, itchy skin. 2 months after giving birth, I have dry patches of skin around my tummy & they itch like hell! Lathering on the oil relieves it.

    Enjoy your last few days of freedom! :p

    Thank you for the lotion tip! And yep, I’m trying to grab as much shuteye as I can while Timmy’s not here yet 😛 For now, sleep is freedom!!!

    my keycode is ‘timmy’ so i just had to post a comment. mommy bag, daddy bag, baby bag are ready. will prepare nonna bag as soon as i log off. fyi, the nonna bag contains disposable plates and utensils, paper products, kitchen/hand towels, fruit bowl/serving tray, hand soap, dishwashing soap and all other stuff not in the first 3 bags :-)

    I shall post a pic of the Nonna bag in a bit! 😀

    I’m excited too! Everyday I check your blog and FB page to see if you’ve announced, “I’m in labor ….” Hehehe! Re. itchiness: the ONLY thing that worked for me was calamine lotion.
    .-= rowie´s last blog ..Camping with a baby. =-.

    Hahaha! I will text LHC when I’m in labor na. 😀

    Ei Toni! I was partly hoping to see, “HELLO TIMMY” when I dropped by to check your blog. But I guess, Timmy just wants to keep the suspense going for now. We’ll keep the prayers coming till you’ve safely delivered Timmy! :)
