Today is the day! Well... more like tonight is the night! Mike and I are headed into the hospital at 10pm to be admitted for an induction starting around midnight. I'll be 39 weeks and as nervous as we are about everything that's about to happen, we're anxious to meet our little man. I ended up being admitted to the hospital yet again yesterday after my 2 hour NST at the OB office, and I laid up in the labor beds for 4+ hours getting checked. Baby Flynn is doing okay, but he was awful quiet/still during the whole ordeal so they wanted to be safe by having me stick around for the remainder of the day. I know my whole family must be so ready for this ordeal to be over because it's exhausting and taxing on everyone. Carting me around to appointments, sitting around with me in hospital rooms, shuffling Toby between sets of parents, and just the overall anxiety of the past 5 weeks. I feel confident that my doctor knows what she's doing so here goes nothing!
Check out that BUMP! This kid managed to drop quite a bit the morning these photos were taken (Saturday). I woke up and everything looked normal and then by the time we strolled out of the house to run errands I was calling Mike into the room to say "Look at this thing!" He couldn't really tell what I was saying, but I spotted a huge shift in such a short amount of time. It was so cool to notice, ya know? This outfit is what I wore when Mike and I had our last little "date night" on Friday. By date night I mean we spent a ton of time in Target and I ate a boatload of pancakes at Cracker Barrel haha! Going out with a bang, y'all! (Real talk: I've been craving Cracker Barrel pancakes this entire pregnancy, and I finally ate them at the very end).
Anyway, this dress is another one from Belly Dance Maternity. I have never worn something so ridiculously comfortable in my life! I don't know what makes it so soft, but Mike said it was like wearing a sleeping bag with the feet cut out haha It doesn't feel like a sleeping bag, but it's just so cozy that I want to wrap up in it. It might look like an ordinary black maxi dress, but I love how classy it feels. It can easily be dressed up or down depending on the day/mood/accessories. The sleeves are something totally different for me, and I love that it's an actual maxi dress. Bonus points that the small little slit is in the very back rather than up the side of the leg like my Old Navy and Target ones!
I kept the accessories super minimal by only adding this tassel necklace from my most recent Stitch Fix shipment, and my favorite Urban Expressions clutch. This bag holds so much, but it's not obnoxiously big. The zipper compartments allow me to make it wider or thinner depending on what I want to stuff inside there haha. This outfit garnered me quite a few comments while we were out and about running errands. I guess it really did highlight the belly because everyone and their mother was letting me know that I am basically 85 months pregnant. (Thanks guys! I kind of knew that already...) Ha.
After months and months and months of abstaining from all kinds of goodies, I'm looking forward to a nice, cold glass of pinot grigio soon! Brie also sounds really good right about now... haha And maybe sleeping on my stomach again! Oh boy! I've loved being pregnant but life after baby sounds like it's going to have it's perks. It's just so hard to believe that this is my very last outfit post with Baby Flynn on the inside. Guess we'll see y'all on the other side!

PS; I have my Things I Love Thursday post set up to go live Thursday morning, and I think I might even have something set for tomorrow, too. I'm not sure when Baby Flynn will make his appearance but you can follow along with our little journey on Twitter and Instagram if you'd like! Otherwise I'm sure he'll be making his formal debut on here in a couple of days! (But first sleep! And cuddles!) xo
