Big Belly Big Baby

{our little boy}

I'm officially 35 weeks pregnant, but after an ultrasound showed that our little boy is almost 7 lbs already, my doctor thinks I'm more like 37 weeks along (man, do I sure look like it!). Oh my!

{Big Mama}

I don't know why this has thrown me for a loop, but I've been frantically running around the house trying to get things ready for the baby and packing my hospital bag (is this what they call "nesting"??). The thought that I could go into labor any day now has me wishing I hadn't procrastinated.

Cute belly! You're all belly, and one of THOSE people who will look like they were never pregnant within 10 minutes of delivery!

You look adoreable! Soon you'll be staring at that little precious tiny scrumptous baby and you won't believe that you made something so perfect... oh! I loved that part of it! My husband and I literally kept looking at eachother saying "Look what we did...how did we make something so perfect?" I thrilled for you!

Eeeeeep! I can't believe how close you are! You look adorable of course.

I was almost 8lbs when I was born and they joked that half of that was my huge noggin. My poor mom, LOL.

Thank you SO much, Everyone. I feel like a moose right now, so your sweet comments really put a smile on my face.

I'm so unbelievably excited I can't take it!

Awww, you look fantastic! My sister had a c section with an almost 10 lb baby boy and she's 5'4" and usually about 125 lbs! That baby was huge! :)

You look absolutely fabulous! Seriously, just darling!

I'm so excited for you!! You look beautiful & it's going to be amazing!!

Be ready for the long-haul when you go into labor & you might be pleasantly surprised when it's easier & quicker than you thought! (I was ready for a crazy long 30 hour labor -- I had my hair in a ponytail & was so geared up--- bc that's how my family usually has them & mine was only 7 hours or so & was actually really easy...) Just think of it like a sporting event or marathon & you'll get through it & surprisingly enjoy it!!

good luck!!

ps- sorry for the long preachy comment but it really helped me!!

ps- they also told me my baby was probably going to be 8 pounds and he was only 6!

You look ADORABLE! We just had our second daughter, Libby, on 12/28 and so I'm enamored with hearing about soon to deliver preggo gals now. :o) I found your blog through a few others and it's my first time visiting - delightful and so lovely! I'm also planning a tree mural on the wall of my oldest daughter's bedroom (she's 2.5) in kind of a family tree style them (hanging frames with her and family members on the "branches").

Praying that you enjoy a gret rest of your pregnancy. There's nothing like a baby! :o)
