39 Weeks





My good friend Angie convinced me to take pictures of myself all huge and exploding from all angles. Supposedly I might want to look back in several years and see how big I was when I had this baby.

* My doctor at my last visit said I had a good 8-8 1/2 baby inside me, and I'm not progressing. She also likes to wait until a week past the due date before inducing you to give your body a chance to go into labor by itself. Obviously she isn't concerned about my son being ginormous and painful. I'm not bitter or anything. I just keep hoping that she's wrong and that the baby is going to be really small and easy to deliver.

* I also decided that nothing helps you go into labor. I've tried everything in the book, including eating 4 pineapples this week. After my last pineapple it no longer made my mouth sore. I think my mouth adapted to all the acid I was now exposing it to. I also decided that the walks Rusty and I have been taking in the evenings are not good enough. We are now hitting the gym where I do brisk walking, byclying, and a few weights. It will be good for me and the baby to lose a few pounds. :)

Jerianne I think you look so good in your picture. Who says you're not photogenic. You're going to have to let me know when you have the baby so I can come and visit you. I hope he comes soon so he's not too big. Good Luck!

I love this picture! You still look so incredibly cute and are just all belly. Can't wait to hear about his arrival! Go walk Ikea. That store is like a maze. Better yet, run it. :) Then come home and have Rusty rub your ankles. I've heard that's one of the labor spots. Then make him paint your toes so they are all cute for the big day. I say just pamper yourself!

Oh my! Do I remember those days well. I went to 40 weeks and 5 days. Hopefully he'll decide to come out before that. I had to ask my doctor to help me out and he came the next day. They are so worth it though! You look great! I agree with you that all those things they say will bring on labor, don't work. Treat yourself to a massage, you'll be relaxed and it will be a while till you can do that again. :)

Seriously Jeri YOU LOOK SO GOOD!!! You are getting so close! You won't even believe how fast this next year is going to go! Just enjoy the last little bit with your baby still trapped right next to you! Pretty soon he'll be crawling and squirming away from you faster than you can believe. We are so excited for you! YOU LOOK DARLING!
