39 Weeks…

30 Jan

…and hopefully the LAST Baby Perks Belly Bump Alert…

Mama Perks & Baby Marshall…39 Weeks!

Alright-here’s the skinny on my NOT so skinny belly…

I had my 39 week appointment this past Wednesday.

Dr. M informed me that I was in fact 1 cm. dilated and that the baby had definitely “dropped” since the week before.

He then informed me that as long as Baby Marshall continues to make his descent and my cervix cooperates that there’s no need to wait until my due date to induce me.  PRAISE THE LORD.

So the game plan as of now is for us to be induced this Wednesday, February 2nd.  I’ll be 39 1/2 weeks and MORE THAN ready to NOT be pregnant anymore.

With that being said…we are just 2 1/2 days away from Marshall Oliver Perkins making his debut into the world.

Can you believe it?  Fastest pregnancy ever.

Although, I’ll be honest…the last couple weeks have been pretty brutal-I’m ready to leave the sleepless nights, heavy breathing, and lack of mobility that comes with having a watermelon attached to one’s midsection behind.

We had fabulously perky weekend-enjoying our last few days as a family of three…I’ll post more about it tomorrow!

Until then-hope y’all had a fantastic weekend!

    You look gorgeous, mama. Seriously. I am counting down the hours to D-Day:). I am sure you are counting down the minutes on one hand and giving as many cuddles to your firstborn as possible with the other. Love you .
