Getting closer…hopefully!

Oh, hey.  I’m 37 weeks and 3 days. 

The bug is 6 lb 5 oz…he is in the 30th percentile.  This really shocked me.  I thought I would have an extremely large child.  Like my mom.  She had ridiculously huge babies.  I was the smallest –2 weeks early on the higher side of 7 lbs.  My sister was almost 9 lbs. My little bro was 2 weeks early and about an ounce away from TEN LBS.  So yea, I cried a little when they told me my little boy is a little boy.  My doctor laughed—apparently most women are glad to hear their babies are small- for laboring purposes, I guess?  I think I would cry either way.  Huge ball of emotion here.

I also cried a little lot when she told me I am ONE cm dilated.  SERIOUSLY.

I was hoping praying  for more.  Especially since I don’t want to be induced.  I fear I am going to go past my due date.   I am glad my hubs respects my wishes because I am so close to caving and begging to be induced (which my doctor will GLADLY do), but he knows that I really really do not want that at all.  Thanks, hun…I think.

Here I am, in all my glory…me, baby & 30 extra pounds.  I haven’t gained in 4 weeks—Brad and I found this hilarious considering the amount of food I put into my body.  No clue how I haven’t gained.  It is just weird.


Side note: I really want this McCarty Owl.  I’ve collected owls for about 6 years now.  Saw this at a store this weekend…its only $250.  HA. HA.

Oh my. I have been owl obsessed for a few years... before it became "cool" to like owls! I would LOVE this.. but, the price?? Seriously?? You look SO cute and I know that baby boy is making himself ready to meet you!! :)

1. You look great!
2. How have you not gained weight in 4 weeks?!
3. I'm trying to figure out how to justify spending $250 on an owl...but I'm struggling :/

So proud of you for hanging in there. The last few weeks are crazy emo. Rub your belly, look in the mirror a lot, and savor the pregnancy. I totally missed Behr being inside me, being so close. Many other moms have told me the same thing.

And that owl was adorable.

You seriously don't look like you're carrying any extra weight at all!

Look Mrs. Godfrey,

You need to be asking for a new computer or for someone to take your computer to get fixed instead of $250 McCarty Owls that we all know will be here forever. I REFUSE to stand for gay, lame, small, not good, pixily, teamblackberry, baby pictures of your new child on your blog. I am sorry but I refuse. So. Priorities. Get it fixed. Like NOW. And THEN Ask Jill how she makes her so big so we can see baby Godfrey like really good and close up! So Momma get busy! Fix your computer or get a new one for your blogs sake! xoxoxo love you!
