Baby Martin: Month 9 & Pregnancy Quiz

Well I am 37 weeks and 1 day (every moment counts, right?!) and can't believe I'm officially full term! What an exciting and overwhelming thought all in one. Is it a problem that it still doesn't seem like there's going to be a baby here - very, very soon?! I just can't comprehend the fact that a little human is inside of me...so, so, so surreal. But some moments it is sinking in! Needless to say, the nursery is d-o-n-e!! I just need to find my camera cord and I will post the pictures. I didn't get around to posting my 9 month collage last week, so here it is.So I've had a few readers ask me why I didn't/don't do the weekly pregnancy updates. I'm not really sure why I never started them, but by the time I decided I might do it I thought it was a little too late, so I just didn't. So basically, no real reason, except maybe laziness. So for your entertainment, I've decided to complete one. I know, I know...I'm such a people pleaser! :)

How Far Along: 37 weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss:
Loss? You mean there are people who actually lose weight during pregnancy?? Umm, yeah...I've struggled with that. Let's just say this...I've gained way more than I'd like to, but I honestly don't care. It will come off one day, and it's all worth it!
Maternity Clothes:
Yes, please! They are so comfy...I'm not sure I'll ever be able to go back to wearing a pair of jeans with an actual zipper and button on them. My new motto is, "I'm bringing stretchy back."
Best Moment this week:
FINISHING the nursery!!
It's a Boy - Emanuel William!
I'll admit - I've been a little lazy lately. But I do usually move at least twice a day from the bed to the couch. Oh wait - was this referring to the baby?
Food Craving:
I'm convinced food craves me...it just has this way of sucking me in. There's pretty much nothing I won't/can't eat. I'm thankful I'm not nauseous, but the extra elll beees are adding up!
What I miss:
I can tell you what I haven't missed - any chance to eat!
Yes, please. I l-o-v-e bedtime. And naptime. And long rides in the car so I can nap. I am fortunate that I've been able to sleep so well (at least up to this point) in my pregnancy.
Belly Button: Eeew. It was a super duper innie to begin with, but now it's just flat and scaly. I don't think it will pop out, but it looks creepy right now.
What I am looking forward to: Besides the obvious (dinner), meeting this little monkey who's hanging out in my belly!


  1. Isn't pregnancy surreal? I'm almost 30 weeks, and I'm still waiting for the realization that I have a living being in my body. It's all so crazy!

    You look beautiful. :)

  2. Awww, you look so cute. I can't wait to see your little man.

  3. LOVE IT! Come on Manuel, 3 more weeks but it would be cool if you came early! I can't wait to see your little face!!!!

  4. You are really lovely!!! It seems like just yesterday when I read that you were pregnant!

  5. You look so cute!! I love the "I'm bringing stretchy back" comment - so funny!!

  8. The Movement entry cracked me up!! :) You look great, only a little further to go!

  9. Hi,

    You have a nice blog. A 40-week pregnancy is really just a blip in our whole life time, but the problem with clothing during that time is very painful. Keeping this in mind, two best friends and mother of two children each started http://www.bellybundles.com. We have high quality maternity clothes there and we would like to hear your feedback on our products.
