38 weeks

Welcome November! Today I am 38 weeks and 4 days pregnant. How did this happen so quickly?! It felt as if the beginning months dragged on, only to speed up in the second trimester, and then go the speed of light during this last trimester. Yet, I am feeling so ready to welcome this baby into the world. From lots of false labour to other things dropping and falling out, we are good to go! I have actually began to indulge in the foods and drinks that supposedly induce natural labour. They include pineapples, dates, and red raspberry leaf tea.

Below I have created a compilation of growing belly photos this pregnancy at 8, 18, 28, and 38 weeks. It wasn’t as drastic as I had imagined it to be. Maybe because the weight spreads all over my body rather than staying only on my stomach. I almost feel as if it is more of a hair evolution over the last 7 months. (And now I am back to short and blonde again!)

I am planning for this to be my last post until December. I gave birth to Remy during my 38th week, so I am preparing to take an early break this time around. I will be sure to update everyone with newborn spam eventually.

Here is my week 38 update with my not-so-little girl.

See you soon! Wish us luck!

what to pack in a hospital bag

What to Pack in a Hospital Bag - 1Just like our diaper bag, figuring out what to pack in a hospital bag as newbie parents seemed like an overwhelming responsibility at first. After consulting many online lists, as well as my sister (don’t forget the snacks!), I think that we now have a pretty good idea as to what we will need. Here is what we will be taking to the hospital:

What to Pack in a Hospital Bag - 2We are bringing a cooler and ice cream pail in order to transport my placenta. It has to be kept over ice until it can be encapsulated. As for our baby, we were given the same outfit that my husband went home in from the hospital just over 30 years ago. We plan to bring him/her home in it. Here’s hoping that it will fit!

What were some of the essentials that you needed at the hospital whilst in labour?

labour day.

IMG_1IMG_2 IMG_4IMG_5IMG_3 IMG_6

today is labour day!!!

no, it is not a national holiday to celebrate birth, it is a day to celebrate worker’s rights. or, for us canadians, a day that signifies the last long weekend of the summer. or, in our case, an excuse to have the day off and watch a beautiful firework display! either way, everybody wins. :-)))

have a wonderful labour day everyone!
