36 Weeks

So although I'm not considered "full term' until next week, I'm officially in the clear to have this baby!! At our chosen hospital at least..
Baby is around 5 1/2lbs and from here on out it's just practice practice practice for her- sucking her thumb, simulating breathing by inhaling amniotic fluid, blinking, and pivoting from side to side. 
I seriously think she'll be arriving earlier than her due date (which is Oct 16th) but who knows. In the meantime we're just getting as ready as we can and SO SO SO anxious!
Baby Ro, 
I can't wait to meet you!! Whether you're sociably early, fashionably late, or right on time doesn't change the fact that we will be meeting SOON! Your pops and I love you to the moon and back and are seriously excited for what's to come.

  7. Laura: wow! We were just talking about this with the doula that co-taught our Lamaze class yesterday! You know, the "what ifs" and how we'd feel confident enough in ourselves to handle delivering our own baby at home if we had to and then going to the hospital haha. That's such a fun story for your friend to tell her daughter in the future. Can't wait to read your post about it!

    Janet: THank you so so much! I really appreciate.. though I'll leave a comment about it on your blog in case you don't read this.. ;o)
