34 weeks.


On the way to the concert the other day we took a restroom break and as I was waiting for Justin to come out the girl working behind the counter at the establishment whose facilities we were using..without buying anything...gasp!!!...asked;
"So, 1 or 2?" At first I thought she was asking if there would be one or two of us dining with them...but soon realized as she was gazing at my swollen belly she meant the number of babies residing inside.
"Just one." I smiled. " I just have large babies"
I'd like to be clever enough to come up with some witty non-offensive response back, but no such luck.
I thought about asking her when she was due, you know how people do that to people who aren't even pregnant...I swear if that EVER happens to me, I'd die( I once witnessed someone ask someone else that who HAD A NEWBORN with them...come on people...WAKE UP!) ...but it was very clear this young (perfectly shaped body) girl was clearly not so I just kept my mouth shut.

I should have waited for Justin in the car.

I'm 34 weeks now...ready to go.
Especially ready since our friends Chad and Mel had their baby girl today! Yesterday afternoon, Chad dropped their firstborn Juliana off with us until her Grandparents arrived from Georgia, as Mel was admitted to the hospital. 2 am this morning I received a text that Adeline Carmichael had arrived..at a whopping 6lbs 10z... I swear I could sneeze that size babe out. Congrats you guys. We love you and cannot wait to meet Addy later today.
SO,I think it's time to take a poll:
the winner will win a little something sweet from ANTRHOPOLOGIE. My most favorite store.
Here's a little info to help you out. My original due date was December 10, but at my ultrasound at 20 weeks and since then my Dr. has said according to all the measurements the due date looks more like December 3.
Maxwell : was two weeks overdue, induced, and he was c-sectioned...weighing 10lbs. 1 0z. Labor time: 36 hours.
Epidural: heck yeah.
Evan: a week early, my water broke, and I had him naturally...he weighed 8lbs. 8oz. Labor time: 16 hours.
Epidural: tried to. Didn't take.
So here's the poll:
1. When will he be born?
2. What time will he be born?
3. Will I get an epidural (and will it work if I do?)?
4.Will we have a name picked out by delivery this time?
5.How big will he be?

*You'll get the epidural and it will work (though I'm all for el naturale; but you have to have a personal conviction to make it!)
*You will pick the name: How about Jackson or Dayton?
*8 lbs. 14 oz; and NO tears! Bring your castor oil :) Made a Big difference for me!

This is more of a questionnaire, but that's ok. We can call it a poll...

When: He'll be born Dec 3rd (so we can share birthdays!!)

Time: 2:15pm

Epidural: Not sure what that is, but yes, it will work

Name: Of course you'll have a name picked out! An angel will visit you both separately, give you instructions and prepare you for your child to come. You will be on the pooper (so bring a magazine to the angel won't see you privates), and Justin will be at work. His coworkers will think he's crazy, because he's the only one who will see the angel, but then he'll get a promotion because his boss has imaginary friends too.

Size: 165 pounds (same size as me)

3. no, of course not, bc you'll be sneezing him out, remember?
4.no, no way will the name be nailed down by hospital time. but you will secretly know exactly what name you want and after the horrors of childbirth, you will be sly and THEN sweetly tell justin this exact name and how much it means to you and he will be a big jerk not to comply and since he's no jerk, he will agree wholeheartedly.
5. 6lb 9 oz.

i look forward to winning.

Sarah G. said...

1. November 26th (That's my birthday ;-) hehe)

2. Going into labor around bedtime and deliver before midnight. (it's the third baby let's dream big here)

3. Yes and Yes Mine didn't work with Noah but was perfect with Dawson and Sadie.

4. Yes you will have a name soon. I think Caleb, Noah, and Dawson are great choices with good meanings :)

5. Being that you will be a little early and all my babies keep getting smaller (I started with Caleb at 7lbs 14oz and ended so far with Sadie being 5lbs 8oz) I am gonna guess a smaller baby like 7lbs 7oz

I am excited. I am praying for you!!
