38 weeks

+ 3days.

It's funny to me how everyone is starting to get so anxious about my impending labor. I was asked yesterday if it was true that I had a contraction (rumors)... No! It could be any day now (the other 3 kiddos were all about 10 days early). 

The heartburn is still hanging around and I can no longer even have a sip of juice without setting it off. I've been drinking lots of milk instead. And water. As far as cravings I really wanted cookies last week, but didn't bake any so it sort of went away. I don't think I've been having many cravings lately. Little Lady still feels like she's residing in my ribs, especially while riding in a car and the lower back/hip pain is back. 

Early on I predicted we'd meet this girl on December 4th, but I am leaning more towards the 7th now. I also think she'll be around 7 pounds 8 ounces. If you want to leave a guess in the comments please do! It will be fun to see if anyone's guess is right.

That's all for now as I am sort of in nesting mode and trying to make sure everything is in order around here. Happy Monday!!


  1. looking SO good. Seriously. How are you having a girl and not all puffified? I am v. v. jealous.

    SO excited for her delivery but I wont pester!!!!

    lots of prayers and good vibes (I feel like people say good vibes instead of prayers on the www .... I'll do both to be safe and cool) from St. Louis!!

  2. I'm right there with Grace! Sending lots of prayers your way!
    My guess is December 9th and 7lbs 10 ounces.

    Can't wait either!

  3. You look great!!! So impressed with your perfect bell.

    I'm guessing the 7th because it sounds cool. She'll be long and gorgeous and she'll hate to have her legs confined (I go the extra mile and predict personality as well as date, you're welcome).

  4. You look so amazing! I'm going to vote for 12/12/12 AWESOME WOULD THAT BIRTHDAY BE????

  5. Didn't think about 12/12/12. That would be pretty cool.
