Inducing Labor at 38 Weeks Pregnant

March 2, 2017

The doctors will be inducing labor on Sunday if the baby doesn’t come this week. Katie will be 38 weeks pregnant when this happens. She’s currently 3+ cm dilated and 75% effaced. I wrap up my final job before taking a break to be a dad. This will likely be our last vlog before we become parents. Prayers for a safe, smooth delivery are appreciated!

Week 36 Bumpdate

February 23, 2017

Katie is well into her third trimester and at 36 weeks, reality has finally set in for us both. The baby has dropped and we found she’s 3cm dilated and he may be coming in as soon as two weeks! Not gonna lie, it’s really starting to freak us out that we’re about to become “mom” and “dad”. Are we ready for this??

Bumpdate: Week 32

January 27, 2017

Alright y’all, it’s happened. I’m 32 weeks pregnant and officially very uncomfortable. You know how when something seems too good to be true, it usually is??! I’ve had such a great pregnancy so far and aside from the first couple weeks, have truly loved being pregnant…but within the last week things have changed. I am soooo tired all. the. time. Maybe even more tired than I was in the first trimester. Is this normal?? And when I go to bed, I rarely get a good night’s sleep. I’m either up every hour or two to pee OR there’s this new thing where I wake up around 4am and can’t fall back asleep for an hour or two. 😡😡 Why does my brain decide to start freaking out about baby boy’s delivery in the middle of the night?? Oh, and getting comfortable – forget it!  Okay, I’m annoying myself. Venting session over. Just two more months, little guy! 😅

How far along? 32 weeks / 8 months

Size of baby: Head of lettuce (19 in. / 3.9 lbs.)

Symptoms? See venting sesh above (lol) – also, headaches, heartburn and major preggo brain!

Cravings? Sonic Raspberry Limeade ALWAYS sounds good. Thank goodness for Happy Hour!

Weight gain: 18 lbs. give or take

Maternity clothes? ALWAYS. But my maternity wardrobe is somewhat limited so I wear like the same 3 or 4 things every week. I can’t remember what it feels like to wear pants with a button…how will I ever go back to normal clothes postpartum??

Baby movement? Constantly. Homeboy is an active one! And I can tell he’s running out of space ’cause he’ll constantly push – hard – on my stomach – not just kick but like he’s stretching or really trying to break out. Gotta stay in a little while longer dude 🙂 And he gets the hiccups like once a day, which is basically the cutest thing ever. There are so many things I’ll miss feeling once he’s not in there anymore.

Most Excited About? Getting the crib and dresser set up in his nursery and completing his room. Also, my baby shower!!!

Best moment of the week? One of my girlfriends is in town from Utah and a small group of us are getting together for lunch later today. Three out of four of us are pregnant and due within a 3 month period…plus, we’re all expecting boys! We all went to high school together and have been friends for 10+ years, so it’s so so fun to all be expecting our first babies at the same time. I can’t wait to see all the cute bumps and enjoy some quality girl time.

Countdown: 7 WEEKS 2 DAYS! Whoop!
