We have a little baby girl. I gave birth to Emmy Lynn Helland on January 23rd, 2015 at 5:30 a.m. I was 38 weeks and 6 days along. She was 6 lbs 12 ounces and was 20 inches long. We are so incredibly blessed. Here is a picture before I blab anymore!

I have so much to write about my labor, how it is going with a 2nd baby, and postpartum this time around. Can’t wait to fill you all in. Now that I have my head on my shoulders and am recuperating from having a baby, I will have more time to blog. Chat with you all soon! Also here is my 38 week post that I didn’t get a chance to post.
Another week has come and gone. I am still growing and becoming more tired everyday, although that will not change when the baby comes, but at least I can look at my cute baby instead of just carry it around in my tummy.
How far along? 38 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 22/23 Pounds
Maternity clothes? Yes, but I would live in my sweat pants if I could.
Stretch Marks? I think I have one. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if more come. I swear I can feel my stomach stretching. It is sooo tight.
Best Moment: Weekly doctor appointments, being one day closer to meeting the baby, and the weather is above zero degrees! YAY
Miss Anything: Sleeping through the night, working out, not being tired, drinking as much caffeine as I please, being comfortable siting on the couch, and my patience.
Movement: Yes, but there is not much room left in my stomach. I do not feel the baby as much.
Food cravings: hmmmm, nothing specific. Chocolate after every meal.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing this week
Have you started to show yet? YES
Labor Signs: Still no braxton hicks or contractions. My doctor checked me on Tuesday and I had not progressed from the week before.
Belly button in or out? Popped, it looks pretty funny in some of my clothes.
Gender:GUESSES?? I am going to guess January 24th, Boy- 7lbs 8oz. lol. That is my guess. Travis thinks Jan 28th, Girl 6lbs 11oz.
Wedding ring on or off? Still on.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Impatient and tired.
Looking forward to:
The packer game. GO PACK GO. Hopefully it is a good game. I am also looking forward to another doctor appointment.
