.at 41 weeks.

Okay, so I understand that this post is WAY past due as our little man is here, safe and sound and sleeping tightly in my arms, but in the sake of this being a way to document my journey [and a great keepsake for years to come] I feel that I need to share this. 
I wrote it and took the pictures the day before I went into labor and just got too busy to post [labor will do that to you!]. I also know that not too many woman can say that they made it to 41 weeks pregnant! A small milestone that I remember being annoyed at reaching ;)

at forty-one weeks:

::i am feeling anxious, nervous, and weirdly proud for reaching this new milestone. 41 weeks! not many women can say that!
::i am however, ready to meet this little person inside of me and see what creation peter and i made. he/she is loved beyond words already and it's about time we get to show it that.
::i am still getting a million little hiccups.
::i'm kinda feeling like a whale. i just know that this extra week has added a couple extra pounds to the ol' belly. thanks child of mine.
::i am craving chocolate milk and apple juice.
::i haven't changed out of leggings for the past week. not to worry, however, they have been washed.
::my doc mentioned that baby should apparently be around 7 to 7.5 lbs in size. this i can handle. 
::my belly button has officially 'popped' and has been like this for a few weeks. i also think it's kinda cute.
::i am upset that i may have to get induced tomorrow, but like i mentioned above, very excited to meet the little one. i only hope everything progresses smoothly from here on in.

For those of you who don't think in terms of weeks...this works out to 10 months + 1 week pregnant. Meaning I am currently 1 week overdue!


  1. You looked so gorgeous pregnant {and of course now too!}. Just a beautiful girl.

  2. you look amazig and where did you find that sweater?!?! LOVE!

    1. Thanks Joanne :)

      The sweater is a new favorite for sure. And I linked above....just click on the Jack by BB Dakota on the last picture and it'll take you right there.

  3. looking good girl... I never made it to 40 weeks with either bambino so getting to 41 is a huge feat (mostly in patience). One day you'll look back on these photos and think "wow look at my boobies" - haha... okay maybe not, but I sure did - I'm not sure where they went, but they were there ;) xo

    1. HAHA, I'm totally loving my boobies right now, but not loving the soreness from Mr. Jack and his incredible appetite!!
      Oh, breastfeeding. I have a love/hate relationship with it.

  4. Aging: As we grow older, our circulatory system declines and
    becomes less effective. Cholesterol clogs arteries and allows less blood flow to.
    It helps in relaxing the blood vessels and instigating an
    increase in the flow of blood towards the sex organ, leading to a stronger erection.
