I cannot BELIEVE this is my last belly shot! 39 weeks preggers. I swear it feels like yesterday I was breaking my pregnancy news to everyone and now I am only a DAY away from having Blake!!! Where did the time go?
This is by far my least flattering belly pic yet, but I am a day away from having a baby and lets get serious...I am no Giselle :-)
But if I've said it once I've said it a hundred times...meaty = healthy when it comes to babies. And I think it is safe to say that there is one meaty baby in there. Ha!
For weeks now, my mom and a few others have said that I look bigger in the belly this time around. I know that boys tend to be bigger and I do feel HUGE right now. But to be honest, I don't think my belly is much bigger than it was with Addie. I think it is just that I filled out all over the place with Addie (that's what sitting at a desk eating all day will do to you) and this time I seemed to have gained all my weight in the belly (that's what chasing a toddler all day long will do to you). So maybe that's it! But you can see for yourself. Here is my 39 week belly pic with Addie...
Since there is really no point in guessing when I will have Blake, maybe we could play a game of "Guess his weight"! I have added a poll to my right sidebar. And to help you make your decision, Addie was 6 pounds, 13 ounces when I had her at 39 weeks, 6 days. I will be having Blake at 39 weeks, 4 days so we are pretty close time wise. I guess only time will tell!!
So speaking of the big day, I am sure you are all wondering how and when you will find out about Blake's arrival. The good news is that I will have Internet access in the hospital so I will be sure to post at some point during my stay. But in the meantime, I have asked my mom to guest post so that she can share all the details when he arrives.
And that, my friends, will be the next time you hear from me! I have decided to take the day off from blogging tomorrow so that I can spend some quality time with Addie and Eric. I am going to miss my little peanut SO MUCH while I am in the hospital, but I know she is in excellent hands with her grandparents. Eric will also be taking time to come home and play with her so I'm not worried. Plus, this will give me some one-on-one time to bond with my new son. Gosh...that sounds so weird!!! My SON! Can you tell I am excited???!! I am also scared shitless...but luckily the excitement gets me through all that. All I can do at this point is hope and pray that Blake and I get through delivery safe and sound. Thanks to all of you who have already sent your well wishes for the big day. Your thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated :-)
And on a parting note, I just want to thank you all so much for sharing this journey with me over the last nine months. It has been so much fun documenting all these exciting milestones. And the best part is...it is all just beginning!!! Stay tuned friends...Blake will be here shortly :-)
