Week 38: My Pregnancy Journey.

Yep…still pregnant! 

IMG_2635 (427x640)

At this point the baby is probably around or over 7 pounds, and has likely reached his full size in length.  I still don’t really believe there is a real live baby in there with actual skin, hair, and fingernails.  I still picture him as a giant tadpole.  I guess we’ll see soon enough!

IMG_2642 (425x640)

Signs of Labor

I’m on high alert these days for any signs of labor, even though I know that it’s so hard to predict.  But here are a few that I think I might be experiencing…

  • Dropping – even though I’ve carried low this whole time, I do think my stomach has “dropped” a bit.  There seems to be more space between my boobs and my belly these days, and when I sit I feel like my stomach is literally resting on my legs.
  • Braxton Hicks contractions – these have definitely increased.  Apparently they are likely to increase in frequency and duration for several weeks leading up to labor though, so this doesn’t necessarily mean anything is happening soon.
  • Pressure – I feel a lot of pressure really low in my pelvis, so much that it can be painful to walk and sit at times.  I’m convinced our baby has a giant head (Casey and I both do), so I assume it is moving downward and causing the pressure sensations.

Other than that, I generally feel the same as I have all along.  My midwives don’t do any physical checks on us until we reach 40 weeks, so I won’t know anything about my physical progress for another week or so.  I might try to convince them to check me at next week’s appointment!

IMG_2647 (426x640)

I’m definitely slowing down a lot here towards the end, and even the most basic tasks are difficult and sometimes frustrating.  I took a break from walking while Casey was out of town, but am planning to start back up again this afternoon, and hope to get things moving!

Speaking of – look who is back! 

IMG_2657 (427x640)

I was definitely nervous about Casey being out of town, but I made sure to rest as much as possible and I had a plan in place just in case anything happened.  Now that he is back, we are READY!

Every day I make sure I am caught up on cleaning, dishes, laundry, email, etc. – just in case today is the last calm day before the storm.  One of the things I want to work on this week is figuring out our plan of how and who to contact once labor actually begins.  The only other thing I’m really still working on is figuring out our diapering plan.  I’m hoping that it will all feel much easier once we’re doing it and not just talking about it.

From now until the end of October, my schedule is completely cleared!  I don’t really feel like I can commit to much of anything beyond the next day or two at a time.

IMG_2648 (425x640)

A lot of people say that right before labor starts, babies tend to slow down and stop moving around so much.  If that is true, this guy has no plans to make an appearance any time soon.  He is gigantic and jumping all over the place.

With my pregnancy nearing it’s end, I wanted to do a few fun things to document it and remember before it’s all over, so I recorded a (rare) video to remember what it was like to have this big beach ball attached to me!  If you aren’t sick of seeing my giant belly already, you can click below to see a few big kicks and punches captured on film.  If big pregnant bellies freak you out, this video might not be for you…

Please excuse that it was 8am and I was in my pajamas – I wanted to catch him while he was still kicking from breakfast!

Getting Ready for Baby

Nothing new this week, although I did order some wet bags for diaper storage that should hopefully arrive soon!  Baby C also received a ridiculously adorable gift from friends Kelsey and Jason…

IMG_2654 (640x427)

BABY TOMS!  Clearly he wants to be just like mom and dad.  :)

IMG_2652 (640x428)

The other generous gift we received from Kelsey was a maternity photo-shoot!  She is considering starting a side business in photography, and wanted some extra practice subjects.  We were happy (and grateful!) to help her out. 

6206128879_5a889f4908_b

The pictures turned out so well, and I am embarrassed to admit how many times I have looked through them.  I hadn’t originally planned on having maternity photos taken, but now that we have these I am SO happy we have such a beautiful way to remember this pregnancy.

Cool video! When one of my best friends was pregnant a few years ago, I literally spent hours watching her belly for those kicks! It’s so crazy and totally mesmerizing!

Love the maternity photos, too. And I’m glad Casey made it back without any labor drama while he was away!

[Reply]

Kristin     at 11:55 am

Wow! That video is amazing! I’m 21 weeks and haven’t felt too much from my little guy so to see that is really cool for me! Can’t wait! Even though I’m sure it’s uncomfortable!

Nikka     at 11:55 am

Soooo cool! You just blew my mind with that video..no joke my jaw is on the floor : P

[Reply]

barb     at 11:56 am

Thank you so much for the belly video! I am not pregnant yet, (haven’t even been married a year) but am so looking forward to it. The only part that has me apprehensive is being late in the pregnancy and dealing with being “big”. Seeing your little guy move up close like that just makes my heard jump with joy and my fears disappear!

Reading your updates and following your journey has been awesome to see. Your maternity photos look gorgeous! Can’t wait to see the culmination of all your prep with Baby C’s arrival!

[Reply]

Kelly     at 11:56 am

Wow you are so close! The video definitely looks familiar :) I love the movements so much.

[Reply]

Gina @ Running to the Kitchen     at 11:57 am

oh my gosh! I have never seen such exaggerated “kicking” before. That is insane! So cool you captured that on camera. I can’t even begin to imagine how it must feel.

Lauren @ LaDolcePita     at 11:57 am

Thank you so much for sharing that video with us! I admittedly am a little weirded out by big pregnant bellies but this was so sweet & touching to watch :) I love reading your pregnancy updates and can’t wait til the big day arrives!!

What a cool video! I’ve never actually seen such big baby/belly movements before! That was a great idea to catch it on video.

Shanna     at 12:04 pm

Your maternity photos are so adorable! I think, if I have kids, it will be a must for me. I love the ones my sister-in-law have and I think it really captures the happiness surrounding having your baby and the excitement. I wish I got to see photos of my parents being so ready to welcome me into the world…

[Reply]

Lee     at 12:04 pm

I was just watching this at work (with headphones on) and my co-worker randomly turned around and looked at my screen. I’m sure he’s like “What are you watching??”

Glad to hear Casey made it back safey.

I love this post!
The maternity photo shoot shots are absolutely beautiful-precious memories : )
And the video…I’ve honestly never seen anything like that! I’ve never been pregnant, and even though I’ve been around a lot of women who have gone through it, I’ve never seen the baby move the stomach that way. amazing :) thanks for sharing!

Those photos are so beautiful! One of your tweets the other day had me thinking you’d gone into labor – when you said “You never know the biggest day of your life is the biggest day…until it’s happening. – greys anatomy”. I was like ah it’s her big day! Haha no more teasing!

Coolest video ever!!!! That is the both the freakiest and most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. I knew you could feel babies kicking, but I had no idea they MOVE that much! Holy crap!

Now I want to be pregnant too. :(

Love the maternity pictures too!

Bethany @ More Fruit Please     at 12:17 pm

You and Casey are too cute with your TOMS! I also looked at the photoshoot on Babble and the one of you two laughing is my favorite! You guys pull off the cool-ready-to-bring-a-human-being-into-this-world thing very well.

This may sound like a silly question, but how do you know you’re having a Braxton Hicks contraction compared to the real deal? Do they just not hurt that badly?

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

Well I don’t know what a real contraction feels like, haha! But these are just a general tightening feeling – not painful, just…strange. I assume the real deal will HURT!

[Reply]

Brittany (Healthy slice of life)     at 12:17 pm

LOve your video Emily!! Can you believe at only 3 weeks postpartum thy I’ve kind of already forgotten what the wiggles feel like? I’m so glad I captured mine on film too :)

I’m now on constant Baby Garnish watch- can’t wait to ‘meet’ him!

[Reply]

Ari     at 12:21 pm

Can I ask what size those Toms are? They are adorable and I have a niece or nephew on the way – thinking they would be a good unisex gift but not sure what size to buy for a baby. Or even how old babies are when they start wearing shoes…

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

The box says T2, which I assume means toddler 2, but they look WAY smaller than that to me. Definitely baby-sized. I have no idea when babies wear shoes either…

[Reply]

Danielle     at 12:21 pm

Thanks for sharing the video!
I’m the baby of my entire extended family, so I’ve never really seen a pregnant belly! Definitely a little alien looking, but I had a big smile on my face watching the video. It was really neat to see him moving around in there. Must be such an amazing feeling! :)

ashley     at 12:22 pm

Cute video!! The movements were crazy!! Those shoes are the cuuutest!

Michaela     at 12:23 pm

I loooooooooooooove everything pregnancy or baby related! And I am always amazed by watching pregnant bellies! Great video :) (so weird to hear you talking, I really have thought you had kind of a high pitched voice :D)
only 10 days left! wohoo!

erica     at 12:25 pm

omg, those baby toms are just TOO CUTE!
i really enjoy following your pregnancy journey, especially since my friend was only 2 weeks ahead of you! she ended up giving birth a month early—her water broke right after my wedding reception (she was still at the reception) how crazy is that?!!?!?

[Reply]

Katie Bucco     at 12:30 pm

Love the maternity photos and I must say I really enjoyed the video. He is definitely a mover and a shaker in there:) Also, if it makes you feel any better, don’t listen to that “the baby will slow down the closer you are to delivery” advice, Hayes was dancing all over the place up until d day and I went one week early. Thinking of you daily and hoping that you are taking some time to put those feet up:)

[Reply]

Steph     at 12:32 pm

Emily, your video is amazing, it’s so great to see him kicking!

I’ve followed you for a while now, originally coming to your blog for running/baking tips but the Baby C story has had me hooked!

A bit gutted I can’t make the delicious oatmeal cookies you posted, we don’t have Earth Balance here in the UK (or not that I could find) or canned pumpkin.

Good luck with your labor and everything :) xxx

Ahh bummer – sorry about the cookies!

Not really. Casey can get home really quickly since his office is only about 3 miles away. He assures me his cell phone is with him at all times! I’m more worried about my water breaking at the grocery store. :)

Annalisa     at 1:04 pm

That video makes me miss being pregnant! I loved watching my baby girl roll from side to side!!

As a mom who birthed a large headed baby, I suggest getting an exam and considering a membrane sweep. At 37 weeks I was 75% effaced/1cm dilated and at 38 weeks I was 90% effaced/3cm dilated. I had my baby at 38.5 weeks and I am SO glad I did. I felt fine but if she was bigger, labor might have been tough. FYI – My doc did not pressure me into exams, I asked for everything. My baby was just under 7lbs and it was perfect since I had a quick labor and didn’t tear. I just didn’t want to be induced so I’m glad it worked out for me. Good luck with everything!

Wow, I had no idea kicks were so visible from the outside! As strange as it sounds, I also had no idea a full pregnant belly was so squishy and moveable. I always just assumed they were nearly rock-hard with all that’s packed in there. Kinda neat. Gorgeous pregnancy shots too.

[Reply]

Gina     at 2:07 pm

I’ve known people who were/are pregnant, but I’ve never felt a pregnant belly before and had no idea it was so soft! That video was amazing. No wonder you become so connected as a mother! I hope you enjoy your time being pregnant as the time is getting closer. Very soon to be 2 awesome parents :) I’ll be praying for everything to go well

I have been reading your blog for some weeks now and I really like it. It is cute how you compare your child to fruits and vegetables. Love it!

Those baby Toms are so adorable and I’m happy you guys had a chance to get some photos taken before the baby is here. I’m planning on having them done as well around week 34-36 I think!

That’s it for now, I can’t wait to go and watch that video!

What a cute video! You look amazing, pregnancy suits you well:)
Quick question – what is Casey’s wedding band made of? I’m recently married so ring shopping was only a couple of months ago, but Casey’s band looks very unique, and like something my husband would’ve liked (he really liked the darker metals).

Shannon Bell     at 3:33 pm

so sweet! i’ve loved hearing about your pregnancy journey and am definitely not sick of seeing the belly! i can’t wait to have one :-) i’m in medical school right now and am geared toward becoming an ob-gyn but reserve a very special place in my heart for natural births and allowing the woman to let her body take charge of such an incredible process–and its been really great to hear your thoughts on all of it as a first time mom and hear how open you are to the experience. I always enjoy reading your posts! (and those chocolate chip cookies w. banana…i’ve made them 3 different times now and they’re SO good)

Thank you for sharing such an intimate thing as recording Baby C’s gymnastic session. I don’t have children, and probably won’t, but I have to admit that I smiled and teared up while watching. I think I may have felt a little twinge…maybe a biological clock choking out a few more ticks???

Your video makes me miss when my sister was pregnant. I loved watching my nephew move. I was holding him on my lap last night, he is 3 months now, and I was still in shock that this little person was the same little lump causing waves in her stomach not too long ago. It was kind of surreal.

That video was super cool & I think your son will love seeing that later!

Kathleen..

Oh yes..I am currently 35 weeks right now and there is a certain side of my body that our baby girl prefers. I don’t know if it’s her head or her bottom, but she moves right beside my bellybutton and it makes that side stick out much further than the other. Then when she moves you see it go back to normal. So funny!

And FYI my son moved like crazy until the day I gave birth to him so your little guy may not slow down much either :) People kept telling me…”oh well maybe you can still feel him moving a lot because he’s small.” Well he was 9 lbs. at birth haha. And watch out because yours may be a mover like mine, always on the go!! I enjoy your updates and posts, cant wait until Baby C’s arrival!

Wowwww the belly is beyond freaky in that video. So amazing though! I remember when I was in preschool, one of our teachers was pregnant with her second baby (her son was my age so he was a classmate), and she let all of us put our hands on her belly to feel the baby kick once. It was so cool! (Obviously since I still remember it over 20 years later…haha.) Your maternity pictures are gorgeous and I am sure you will look back on them fondly when you’re back to running your heart out. :)

Laine     at 4:50 am

My sisters both cloth diapered, I used to make their diapers (and slings and mei tai baby carriers) You can see them in the link above because of course I had to blog about them back then.

When my little sister had her first baby she forgot to use the covers for the first couple of days. We went to see here and she was like “I don’t think these work.” We reminded her to use the covers, her poor scattered brain!

There is very important growth happening for babies in the last couple of weeks, so I hope he stays in there until he’s done with his lungs and eyes and brain!

Brooke     at 5:05 am

Hello Emily!

First off, I absolutely love your blog and became hooked when you started posting your progress with your pregnancy. You are absolutely adorable and it looks like you and your husband will be awesome parents! Ironically, my fiance and I just found out the other day that I am pregnant! This is such an amazing feeling and my mind is spinning in circles. I am a vegan as well and was wondering if you knew of any good books on plant based nutrition during pregnancy so that I know I’m getting the correct amount of nutrients in my diet?

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

Ooooh congrats to YOU!! So exciting!! As far as books go, I didn’t really read any on veg*n pregnancy, but I have just made sure to continue to eat as healthy as possible, and I also take an extra DHA supplement in addition to prenatals.

[Reply]

Brooke Reply:

okay thanks so much! Any particular brand of prenatals that you like?

[Reply]

Jules     at 6:25 am

One thing that will be your saving grace with cloth diapers is a sprayer. It will cost you about $20 to make and you can look up easy instructions on the internet. It is especially nice that Baby C will have his own bathroom, so you can install it there. Makes getting the poops out so much easier! Also, a big bottle of lemon juice was my secret for stains. Dump the poop, spray off what’s stuck, and then give a generous squirt of lemon juice. Never had a stained diaper!

Also, buy a good-sized clothes-drying rack (the kind that folds up) and a fan on a stand. I found that here in New England (just like in Seattle), the weather does not always cooperate for line drying, and the rack and fan combo was just as effective as drying the diapers outside on a breezy day.

Diapers aside, did you see the news that TOMS is putting out ballet flats in the spring? Thought of you as soon as I saw that!

Um no I did NOT, but I am THRILLED to hear that!! Can’t wait to see them!

I love pregnant bellies. Whenever I’m out running errands or something and I see an adorable expectant momma with a big basketball belly it ALWAYS makes me want to give her a hug (I resist!) At the very least though, it always elicits a smile! You’re one of the cutest pregnant ladies ever and I think that’s a huge testament to the fact that you’ve remained so active and healthy throughout your pregnancy.

Keep up the baby posts once he’s here! I look forward to them :)

I really appreciate your openness with this process, it has made me feel so much better about what is to come. I have been so nervous about feeling (and eventually seeing) the baby move but this makes it seem cool instead of scary!

Okay, first of all…please do more videos after you have the baby! It so nice to watch a video of someone you have been getting to know through posts! Secondly, love your KU shirt!!! I am from Kansas and we are KU fans so appreciated your shirt. My daughter is 2 and we are working on having another baby and watching your journey was so nice and brought back all those memories! I remember how scary and exciting it is at the same time! Love the Toms! We bought my daughter a pair as well and we loved them.

One major tip that I give every mom I know…buy a Itzbeen Timer. I give it at every shower I attend. It was such a lifesavor for sleep deprived parents! Good luckw with everything! Can’t wait to see pics of the little guy when he arrives!

I was reading your diaper article on Babble. You said you have 100 disposables. Having already gone thru the diaper days, you definitely won’t be stuck with only 100 diapers. You will probably go thru those in about 2 or 3 weeks. The first month all them little cuties do is eat and poo – and maybe sleep occasionally. I used cloth for a few months but I just couldn’t keep up with all the diaper washing… lol. So anxious to see Baby C make his appearance. Tell him to hurry up!!

Ohhhh, I loved seeing the belly video, it brought me so many wonderful memories of when I was carrying a giant belly pregnant with my son (almost 10 years ago!).
To be a mom is the most wonderful thing in the whole entire world and being pregnant and feeling the baby inside my belly was the most amazing sensation ever, I loved every second of it and am the most thankful person for being able to be pregnant in my life!

I always had the idea in my head that pregnant bellies were kind of like hard shells, like you couldn’t feel much through it. My sister-in-law’s pregnancy debunked that weird idea; I fell on the floor hysterically laughing when I felt my niece’s butt! … but I never got to SEE any movement!

John@buildingthepath     at 7:24 pm

Congratulations on the upcoming addition to your family. It is a wild ride those first few days (weeks, months, years…) but so worth it. I am a couple years down the road ahead of you with two boys age 9 and 11 so the perspective is really interesting. Enjoy it, really enjoy it. I was fortunate enough to have people tell me that and my wife and I have tried very hard to soak up each stage of our kids lives. Right now we sit on the cusp of teenagerdom and (cliché or not) it was a blink ago that my wife was drinking orange juice in our townhouse to see the baby move.
I am very happy and excited for you.
As an interesting (for me, at least) aside…we are about to get a new puppy for the first time after our cat recently died after 19 years. The thing that I focused on most in your video was how your dog snuggled up to you and rested his head on your lap at the beginning of the video. It was precious and really gave me a juxtaposition of you, the experienced dog family vs. us the experienced (for lack of a better term) parents. I was looking at your dog and just hoping we can handle it while you are looking at the addition of a baby and how that will affect your life. No real comparison I know but it did strike me.
Well, best of luck in these coming days and weeks, it is the most enriching experience of my life so far so I wish you and your husband well. Can’t wait to follow along. 

Just wanted to thank you so much for doing this, I’ve never commented before but it has been so amazing to see progress. I came across your blog a few years back, and when I checked back for a recipe you were announcing your pregnancy and I’ve been hooked ever since! Seems crazy the 9 months have gone by so quickly! Just wanted to wish you the best of luck, and hope your journey into parenthood is amazing!

Julia B     at 8:34 am

Thanks for sharing! Some info for you and you can totatlly take it or leave it as you’d like.
I’m a total birth nerd, so when I saw your video I got really excited. :) I’m not a midwife, just a birth nerd as I said, but I think you can tell the position (front or back) the baby is laying in from that video. Baby C is headdown, and the feet are moving on your right side, correct? If there’s a hard long lump on your left side, that’s his back. If all those are true, according to spinningbabies.com, then the baby’s position is LOT or LOA (again I’m not an expert). Sorry this is getting so long, but the gist is that where Baby C is right now (LOT or LOA) is really good for labor, he’s in a great position to spin out. Maybe not a faster labor, but hopefully an easier one, you probably won’t have much back labor and stuff like that. Anyway – thanks for letting me ramble about really obscure baby stuff – hope you have great days before Baby C arrives.

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

Usually the big hard lump is on the right side, but it sort of moves back and forth. I know he is head down for sure! I really hope he’s facing in a way that doesn’t cause back labor, so this is reassuring. :)

ll need to consider your OSSF options, as no government system will be providing any sewage amenities to your building.
A wide range of chemical dozing equipment is specially designed to meet the specific water quality level.
Anaerobic treatment of sewage generated in the
process in a lot of methane, methane is a gas rich in methane, biomass,
methane content of 60% -70%, slightly higher heat value than city gas is good gas, with very good value in use.
