full term!

so we made it! currently I'm 38 weeks along with Baby Werwai, but this photo was taken several weeks ago, at 36 weeks. We're feeling all the feelings around here and trying our best to wait patiently. 

up until these last few weeks, I had been feeling really good and had lots of energy but I've definitely noticed a shift in the last little while. We're nearing the end and my body is feeling it. 

That being said, I'm enjoying these last few days and weeks of getting ready for baby, giving in to a few last pregnancy cravings (potato salad and radishes anyone..?) and trying not to worry about all the last minute details. It feels to me like giving birth and becoming a mother are things you can't really fully prepare for, but that's not stopping me from deep cleaning baby's room (again), filling up our freezer with meals, and packing (& re-packing) our birthing bag... 

baby, we're as ready for you as we'll ever be. 

can't wait to hold you in our arms.


  1. Oh this is so exciting! Try to rest as much as you can if I may advice you. Those last weeks are heavy and exciting all together. I wish you all the best, that you may have a great delivery and a healthy baby! I'll be thinking of you! You can do it!

  2. Oh Ruth! Congratulations! Reading this news has really made my day and (truth be told) shed a little tear of joy for you both

    I agree with dear Ine, rest as much as you can in these last few days & weeks.

    Wishing you three all the very best and for a safe & gentle delivery. Will be thinking of you lots and lots...see you on the other side! xxxx

  3. It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material. Fantastic read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my website.
