39-40 Weeks Pregnancy Update, Life Lately, and Black Friday Purchases

39-40 Weeks: Can you believe yesterday was my due date?! Wow I am actually surprised I have not given birth yet. My hubs reminded me yesterday something interesting that slipped my mind.  With Masha, when we had our first ultrasound, the technician told us the due date was 12/28.  Then when we moved to Florida and went for a follow up ultrasound, the due date was moved to 1/11.  Masha still came on her first due date!  So was I really two weeks early?  I know due dates are just that; estimates.  Either way, baby will come when she is ready.  I'm not really in a hurry, but seems like everyone around me can't wait for this little one to be out.   It's funny that right now I feel great overall.  I have quite a bit of energy.  I do rest a lot too though because this time around I know what is coming.  My parents have been amazing and babysit whenever I need some extra time to myself.  

I have a prenatal appointment today.  Curious to see if I have any progress.  Last appointment at 39 weeks, I was 2 cm dilated and still about 70% effaced.  I have been having tons of Braxton Hicks and several times, I have had painful contractions but they are far apart at this time.  I have not gained any weight since then.  I'm guessing the baby is fully grown, but I have noticed my chest has grown! Definitely a significant amount, milk is filling in :) 

Here are a photos from last couple weeks:

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!  Had a great time celebrated at my parents first and then later at inlaws. 
Masha's outfit:  Janie & Jack skirt, sold out (Similar here and here), Brown turtleneck via Dillards (similar here and here), Purple Hair Bow 
My little doll!  So thankful to be her mother!
My Favorite soup:  Borsch.  If you haven't tried, I highly recommend making it! Mine doesn't look as red here because I always add a spoon of sour cream.  There are several amazing recipes including this one from Natasha's Kitchen and another one here
My cutie enjoying the sunny weather.
Romper, Sold Out (Love this one here and here)
Love that smile of hers!
39.5 weeks pregnant.  I haven't really been taking outfit photos lately.  However I wanted to mention,  I have been living in these Zara leggings though. I have them in all colors.  They are non maternity but are seriously the BEST for maternity because of the thick black waist band.  Highly recommend getting these if you are pregnant (and if not hehe!)
Zara Leggings, (Also love these and these)
Necklace, Sold Out (similar here and here)
Christmas d├ęcor is up and I'm happy!  Love this Alice & Olivia mug I picked up a couple weeks ago at Starbucks..  Drinking coffee/tea just got a little better :) 
With Black Friday and Ebates, I was able to get some amazing deals on a few items that have been on my wishlist!
 I purchased another Marc Jacobs Diaper bag, I love the print (it was over 70% off!)  And we all know we can never have enough Aden + Anais Swaddling Clothes.  I love the B Jeweled set because of the bright vibrant colors.
I have heard so many great things about Lorac, decided to purchase this eye/cheek palette to try out.  Seems like a great deal with all it comes with.  Are you a fan of Lorac?
I actually received the 4moms Mamaroo for my baby shower, however I wanted to mention how awesome it is. I finally set it up and I'm loving the soothing motions and sounds.  Can't wait to use on my little one!  I decided on the 4moms bathtub as well.  I will let you know how I like it.   It has a Digital thermometer so that water is always the right temperature.  And the AlwaysFresh System directs clean, warm water from faucet around baby and continuously expels dirty water. 
Don't forget to sign up with Ebates to earn cash back on your online purchases. It's my favorite because you don't even realize how much money your making back. An awesome new feature is The Ebates Cash Back Button which provides automatic Cash Back notifications.
No login. No hassle. No more missed Cash Back!

Plus right now many of my top online stores (Nordstrom, J Crew, Gap, Sephora, Ulta) are "double" cash back again because of Cyber Monday 2.  Whatever that is right?!  Either way, if you have been eyeing something, something to think about :)

Hope everyone has a great week!
