37 weeks - term!!

8:37 AM

I'm actually 38 weeks today but these are some photos we took last week. I figured after 37 weeks you never know when the baby could come so we wanted to get some last photos in before I lose the bump! 
It's been interesting for me to observe the way my feelings have been changing over the past couple of days. Being this close to the due date I would have thought I would be terrified of the delivery but, whether thanks to our birth classes or other factors, I'm feeling pretty good about it. Instead I find myself experiencing anxiety over the fact that there is physically no way I can prepare myself for this life changing event. I'm daily overwhelmed with excitement over meeting our child for the first time in just a short time. This child that is here because papa bear and I fell in love all those years ago, this child that will change our life forever, this child that has already stolen a giant piece of my heart and will carry it with him/her for the rest of their life... 
The baby's room is ready, the car seat is locked in place, the bags are by the door but most of all our hearts are so, so ready to fall in love with baby bear.
Baby we are ready for you!

  6. Hello Mama Bear,
    I really like your blog and I am following it from Germany. I wanted to say that I wish you all the best. Keep up your good spirit while waiting for baby bear. I think, before birth one grows all calm and peaceful, to collect all your power for the upcoming event. Having two kids myself (who were both overdue, by 6 and 8 days...) I wish you patience while waiting for IT to happen. ;-)
    I am really interested in how you designed your cabin and the baby´s room. Could you sometime post more pictures of that(sorry, it´s all professional curiosity, I am an architect...). Best wishes from

  9. You look amazing (and tiny)!
    I am 36 weeks and people keep reminding me how huuuuuge I am.
    I wish I could wear my cute boots with adorable dresses, but I am retaining so much water that my feet are swollen too big for my cute footwear.
    Best of luck in the coming weeks!

  10. Thank you so much darlings! You have no idea how much this very pregnant mama appreciates it! :) And thank you for all the well wishes! We need all the good vibes we can get :).
    I am also planning on sharing photos of the nursery very soon!

    Kim - You are SO sweet! I can only imagine how frustrating the water retaining must be. My mum said she was like that with both my brother and I and it sounds horrible. I hope you get some relief soon! These last few weeks sure aren't fun! :( But we're almost there! So hang in there sweetie! Wishing you luck as well! xoxo
