Okay, dear readers, we've reached 36 and a half weeks here.
I would love it if you'd let me have any special intentions for labor and please, please don't be shy. I'll be printing them up to keep with me when it's time to birth this babe. This is actually incredibly helpful for me to get outside myself and do the labor thing well. So, really, you're helping me. Put 'em in the comments or on the FB page or you can email me privately at email@example.com.
And just for fun and if you want to play, you're welcome to guess the stats of the newest Eden bebe - birthday, gender, weight, and whatever else you want to throw in there :) Heck, I may just need your help with a name! We have a few ideas but nothing set. Names are the HARDEST!
I don't have any special prizes or anything…but maybe I'll think of something?
Anyway here's the history:
John Paul - born at 39+1 weeks; 6 lbs. 15 oz.
Michael - born at 38+6 weeks; 6 lbs. 15 oz.
David - born at 39+1; 6 lbs. 15 oz. (no, I'm not kidding!)
Luke - born at 39+4 weeks; 8 lbs. 3 oz. (breaking the mold, that one)
All of the male variety.
This baby's 40 week mark is May 23rd.
Pregnancy has been harder in some ways - more nausea, worse skin, more heartburn, more teary...which was leading me to think girl but the last few weeks I've been feeling pretty similar to the others so I may be switching back to boy. I was carrying differently in the beginning but now look pretty much the same as the others. I suppose most of the differences could all be attributed to me just getting old… ;) Conception date is a little earlier from the others and would lead me to think a greater chance of girl. In short? I have no idea. BUT, just to be abundantly clear, I have zero preference as to gender. Really. This baby is already who he or she is and in no way shape or form would I ever ever ever want them to be something they are not. Really. I have very little patience for some of the comments people make about their preference for the gender of my kids. #steppingoffsoapbox I have been thinking this one will be earlier but that could totally be all in my head. Am I forgetting any other useful info?
Okay, let me have em and please keep me in your prayers, too, for a healthy, happy, holy birth. I'd really appreciate it :)
There she is in all her awkward selfie glory...
