Yes....38 1/2 week Pregnant and with just 12 days to go I am trying everything to bring on natural labor and it doesn't look like its going to happen early for me. I had a major energy burst today I don't know where it came from but I was able to do so much and still felt like I could do more.... I read that having a burst of energy is a good sign that labor is around the corner.

Jason took these pictures of me today and I was freaking out when I saw them. I feel like my belly looks like snoopy or some crazy looking snow
cone. I can't even express how anxious I am to go into labor even though I know that after the baby comes I'll be sleep deprived, a human spit-up rag and a diaper changing machine. But I am still looking forward to the bonding time! The 4Th of July is
next week and I'm hoping to enjoy all the festivities, but we will see if the baby wants to come out before then or not.

I can tell Ethan is getting supper excited about having a little brother around, he was holding my friends baby boy today and anytime she went to try and help or pick him up. Ethan was like "" once the baby started to fuss a little bit he would say "shh shh". Once the baby started to cry Ethan was almost yelling "hush hush". To cute for words, he just did not want to put her baby down. I think he is going to be so fun to watch with his little brother!
I have set a date for the doctor to at least strip my membranes hoping that it will help with putting me into labor naturally. I really don't want to have to be induced at all. The doctor wasn't even willing to strip my membranes any earlier then the 7Th mainly because of the holiday. Anyway, 1 1/2 weeks to go, no matter when it happens we are praying for a safe and healthy delivery.


  1. Annette! You look adorable! I wish I looked like you when I was pregnant (and when I'm not)! :) Don't worry about after the baby comes; it's honestly not as bad as the first one. I have really enjoyed the second one and I have felt great! You are going to do amazing and have so much fun! I can't wait to see pictures of him! Let us know; I'd love to come visit in the hospital! Where are you delivering?
