Bumpdate: Weeks 37-38

If you missed my previous bumpdates, you can check out weeks 5-12 hereweeks 13-14 hereweeks 15-16 hereweeks 17-18 hereweeks 19-20 hereweeks 21-22 hereweeks 23-24 hereweeks 25-26 hereweeks 27-28 hereweeks 29-30 hereweeks 31-32 here, and weeks 33-34 here, and weeks 35-36 here! I've decided that at the very end of this, I'm going to make a book out of all of my weeks so Baby Cookie can look back and read through them someday. I also hope to make one giant blog post compiling all of my weeks together to see the progress.
How far along? 38 weeks (almost 39!)

Size of baby?
37 weeks: swiss chard
38 weeks: leek

Total weight gain? I'm finally gaining... and I hope it's all baby! I'm up 10 pounds now! 

Gender? GIRL! You can read about it here

Maternity clothes? Yep - all the time still except for some huge t-shirts!

Sleep? I'm now waking up at least once and hour - sometimes twice... I always have to go to the bathroom, but I think I'm waking from hip pain (despite the giant maternity pillow between my legs)... so I have to pee AND switch sides after I hobble back to bed...

Work outs? I'm trying to go on more walks... sometimes alone, sometimes with Dan and Smudge. I usually go 1.1 miles because there's a nice loop around our neighborhood that I like. 

Cravings? Pumpkin everything! But I totally blame that on social media and not on being pregnant... though I did make some delicious pumpkin muffins this week that I'll be sharing the super simple recipe for soon.

Aversions? Anything spicy in the evening. I can handle the heartburn during the day, but being awoken by acid in my throat is not exactly fun...

Best moment of this week? We saw the Royals play in Cincinnati, and it was a blast! Dan got me tickets for my birthday a month earlier, and we sat right behind the Royals dugout... we made a couple fun signs (about Baby Cookie, of course), and it was so much fun! There were (by FAR) more Royals fans than Reds fans at the game... and we won! 

Worst moment of this week? I've still been cramping a ton and having contractions... though my twice weekly NSTs are NOT showing anything. Boo. 

Looking forward to? Meeting Little Miss Baby Cookie... soon!!! 



  1. You definitely look all baby! I cannot believe baby Cookie will be here so soon! So excited for you friend!

  2. I can't believe Baby Cookie will be here so soon!!!

  3. You are getting so close, she will be here before you know it! :)

  4. That is funny there were more Royals fans at the Reds stadium. Everyone loves KC! (Finally)
