39 Weeks

I can hardly believe this baby is 39 weeks along - time has flown but has also kept still. I'm so excited to see this baby but I already know I'll miss his movements. He loves to hiccup often (well, not sure if he loves it but he does it a lot) - wonder if he'll do the same when he's born? I had a doctor's appointment last week and haven't progressed any more than three weeks ago which makes me feel as though Troy loves his mother already! He just isn't ready to be here yet so we are patiently waiting. As of today, I want this little one to get here when he's nice and ready. That is our prayer! He appears to be healthy so far which is an answer to prayer. We just pray that things will continue the way they have been.

On another note, I quit running a week ago. Carrying around a huge ball in my belly began to wear on me a little with the running. Thankfully, this huge ball isn't too uncomfortable at this point. Things are always subject to change. For those of you who are pregnant or pregnant hopefuls, please know that exercise in pregnancy is wonderful! I have felt so wonderful and attribute tons of it to exercise. You don't have to run to feel good - I am now walking, swimming, doing yoga, elliptical and the bike. Just one of those would be so good for you, and your baby!
I've said that I look forward to seeing his little eyes open and look at us while Brian says he just wants to hold him and see his face. We both have very different features so there's no telling what he'll look like but we don't care, we love him so much already!

Our bags are packed and we're just waiting (somewhat patiently) for him to make his big entrance. We hope it's soon!
Below are a few updated photos of the nursery. It's ready to go - just waiting on the baby!

You look wonderful! I didn't get to run through my first pregnancy because I had an injury but I hope to run through my next pregnancy. I may be emailing you for advice. Did you weight train too? The baby's room looks perfect!! You both are going to be amazing parents. Wishing you a happy labor day :)I can't wait to see pictures!

What a cute, cute nursery. I know excitement is in the air at the Corbitt house. I just can't wait to see him. As a side note, how did you learn yoga? I am going once a month to a reflexologist and she suggested yoga for me.
