Week 35 and counting...


Only 5 more to go! Went to the OB this week and scheduled Wyatt's c-section for Friday, Sept 21st. Seems a little weird to have it all planned out - even to the hour (1:30) - but also nice to know when to have Matt to take off work, when to take the girls to Grammie's, and when being huge in this HEAT is going to end! I told Dr. Deyan I felt like this baby was bigger than my other two (both girls were 7lbs 15 oz) but that maybe it was just the heat making me grumpy. He put his hands on my stomach and said, "No, I think you are right, this is going to be a big baby." So maybe that's another reason it's nice to have a c-section already planned!

While this isn't the most flattering of pics (nice new stretch marks making their way up my belly) it showcases how I spend most of my afternoons - in front of the fan! I've also been taking cold showers right before bed, which seems to be helping the sleeping process. Now if only my hips would stop falling asleep 15 minutes after I roll over. Me and my five pillows continuously switch sides all night!

i can't see your pic...but i'm certain you look beautiful...even though i know it's hard to FEEL the way sometimes! =)

Oh, gosh, I remember that. Legs falling asleep at night...

But I am SO excited about this baby coming! Can't wait to meet him.

I'm suspicious of the fact that the picture didn't show on the blog. Was your explanation of it a tease?

What an exciting yet TOTALLY EXHAUSTING time! LOL at 5 pillows, do you have a body pillow? It made a world of difference for me :)
