Favorite Maternity Pictures

Here are just a few of our favorite maternity photos!!!


We saw the OB yesterday and I am still only a fingertip dilated (0.5cm) but I have thinned out to about 60-70% compared to the 30 % from last week, so that is good! We are scheduled for induction Thursday night the 5th, so plan on her arrival on February 6th!!!

38 Weeks!!

Only 14 more days until her due date!!! I can't believe I have made it this far already :o) We are SO ready for her to make her grand entrance!!! I have an appointment this Friday and we will schedule an induction date for next week.

During 38 Weeks: Reese is close to 7 pounds now. She will start shedding that skin-protecting vernix and lanugo. She will also be producing more surfactant, which will prevent the air sacs in her lungs from sticking together when she begins to breathe.

Yesterday we had a sono @ 37.4 weeks for fetal weight. Little miss Reese is measuring 6 pounds and 13 ounces :o) She is still floating pretty high, so it looks like she will be arriving in about 2 weeks (just before her due date). She always seems to have her hand in her face when we try to get pictures of her!!! This time she had her right hand covering her left eye trying to hide :o) We go back next week for another check up and then will schedule an induction date!!! So far I have gained a total of 27 pounds.

37 Weeks!!!

Woohoo!! I am officially FULL TERM :o) I can't believe it!! She could come any day now :o) I have a sono and OB appointment this Friday, so we are crossing our fingers that she weighs big and I am favorable for induction!! She has been highly active this last week! I have also been having contractions off and on since Friday (nothing very painful), but at least my body is trying :o)

During Week 37: She is gaining about 1/2 pound a week and should be around 6 1/2 pounds now. She continues to practice breathing, sucking her thumb and pivoting from side to side.

36 Weeks!!

I am finally 9 months pregnant!! I saw my OB today and everything is going great :o) I did not gain any weight since last week and my blood pressure is perfect. I go back in a week for a sono to see how big she is!!!

During Week 36: Reese should be about 6 pounds now. Most of the body systems are ready for life on the outside :o)

35 Weeks!!

Today I had an OB appt. and everything is going great!! I have gained a total of 23 pounds so far, only one more pound gained since 3 weeks ago. I go back in one week for another check up and we have a sono in 2 weeks to see how much she weighs before delivery. We are getting so anxious and nervous!! My doctor said he will deliver me whenever we want :o)

During Week 35: Reese should now be about 5 1/2 pounds and 20 inches long. She continues to pack on the brain cells over the next few weeks.
