Week 38

Well I don't have much to say, the baby is ready to be born, now all we have to do is wait!
We had a midwife appointment yesterday and the baby is doing good.
He/she weighs between 6 and 61/2 pounds and measures 19 to 20 inches long.

I am ready and waiting. Everything is washed, packed and ready to go. :)
2 weeks or 14 days left!

(: Monday Mornings :)

When I was sorting through the baby stuff Andy found this hat and he really enjoys wearing it, it makes me laugh every time I see him. :)

I think it's the Pauls side coming through. :)

Week 37

 Praise the Lord, we made it!! Our baby is officially full term now and can been born any day that he/she pleases! What a blessing!
This week the baby is beginning to slow down a bit in it's growth, he/she now weighs around 6 pounds and measures just over 19 inches long, twice as heavy and 4 inches longer than what Andy was when he was born.
And since the baby is full term there are not really any other changes, other than that it is growing hair ( I hope) :)

I am still doing great! I had the fun of getting ready for a baby this week, I missed out on that with Andrew. On Tuesday we had a midwife appt. and she read us the results of the ultrasound, and the doctor says that this baby gets an 8 out of 8 for it's health, another wonderful answer to prayer!!

Week 36

36 weeks!!! I am so thankful to God for bringing us to this point. At the beginning of this pregnancy I didn't know if we would make it this far, but God has shown us His mercy once again! If the baby were to be born now I could deliver at Boundary Trails, a hospital an hour from our place, instead of having to go to the city, just over 2 hours from here, I am so thankful!
Not much is changing for the baby these weeks except gaining weight. He/she weighs close to 6 pounds and measures around 18 1/2 inches long! And I can feel every ounce/inch of it! :)
Besides growing baby Pauls is listening, feeling, touching and looking around when awake. He/she will even turn it's head toward light!

As for me, I have never left this large and slow! :) Just rolling over in bed takes a lot of effort! But it's so completely worth it! I am beginning to get things ready for the baby. I set up the crib in our room, which makes waiting even harder but I do enjoy the excitement of looking forward to the arrival of this little one.

Just a note to everyone that has already voted on if you think that we are going to have a girl or a boy, I had to change the poll so I lost your votes. :( So if you wouldn't mind just voting again that would be great, thanks so much and enjoy your Thanksgiving!!

Week 35

Only 5 weeks to go!!! With everyday that goes by I get more excited for the time when I can finally hold this miracle in my arms instead of my tummy!
We had an ultrasound and midwife appointment on Monday and both went very well, it will take a week till we get the news from the Dr. if the baby is completely healthy, but from what we could see everything was there and working very well. I was going to post pictures but the baby is to big to be able to get a good picture. It was so exciting to see our baby moving around, it made it seem to real!
This week little Pauls continues to grow more fat, he/she now weighs 5.3 pounds and measures 18.2 inches. The babies lungs are now producing surfactant which keeps the lungs from sticking together.

By the time 8 pm rolls around every day I am ready to do nothing. My back and ribs hurt and sitting just feels really good. But I am very thankful that I can make it till then, I'm sure my days would be a lot longer if I felt that way all day. I am starting to get things ready for the birth, it so exciting!!!
1 month and 5 days or 36 days left!
