she still looks pretty high to me




get down baby. d-o-w-n.

thanks for listening to my birth plan post. i know whatever happens it will be great. and i would like to reiterate i know how lucky we are to be low-risk and healthy. i wish THAT upon everyone!

not much to tell about the weekend. my feet are still swollen. blood pressure is still fine. i found a swimming pool and that seemed to help. i am dreading going to work tomorrow. now i understand why women quit before it's time! i dread sitting at home waiting, but i also dread sitting at work swelling! my goal is a full week this week and maybe three days next week and two half days. i don't know.

the baby could be here anytime! today is the first guess of the baby pool (sorry jenny don't think it is happening today!)

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I LOOK HUGE! (and i must brag i still feel pretty darn great - sleeping isn't so comfortable but i was in a great mood all day today!) ANOTHER DOC APPOINTMENT TUESDAY! Will report back STAT.

37 weeks, 2 day

well you look just precious, pigeon. and, you're right; SHE is still pretty high up there. but SHE will come on down when SHE is good and ready. i am sending you all the SHE vibes i can muster. it matters not to me whether you have a daughter or a son, because i know you'll be the mommy of a perfect little baby either way. but i picked GIRL in that baby pool, so the SHE vibes will continue. that is all. love love.

I think you look great, and I hope noranate moves on down for you, but I must say, you are progressing a lot better than I did, so I am ueber jealous! :)

I think you just don't want me to win the pool. I mean like I said on the phone just get in the position and push..jeeez... haha you look great and i am super excited to meet the little one whenever he or she feels is an appropriate time to enter the world...love you

You just look awesome, lovely! Awesome!! I might not have had the chance to give you my dollar b/c I havent seen you (sad :( ) but.. I still vote for July 3rd, even if I feel that mailing a dollar bill is not something I'll likely do b/c I'm lazy. lol! Good birth plan posting as well. Much love to my prego friend! Cant wait for Nora Nate's arrival into the world!!! SHE has a lovely family and friends waiting to spoil her-that's obvious. :) Did I tell you what Aaron said? He said "Jax, you really dont want the baby to be born on your birthday, do you?" I said "Of course I do! Why not?!" He said "..b/c we both know it will piss you off if anyone forgets YOUR birthday and remembers Nora Nate's (he called her nora nate fyi..lol)." I said "Hell no, I wouldnt.. maybe.. but I am super excited to share the best day-July 3rd- with Nora Nate...and WE would NEVER forget each other's birthdays.. that's all that matters..haha"

I like having birthdays overlap other events. My birthday is July 3 too! :) We were married July 16-- my grandpa's birthday. I'd NEVER forget to send nora nate a b-day gift! :)

Does anybody else feel like this whole Kat-being-preggers thing has flown by?? Probably not Kat herself. ;) I can't believe it's almost TIME.
I'm too excited.
PS, what's with all the "she" references? Nate's going to have his feelings hurt. ;)

Jennifer said...

i agree elizabeth...poor nate. Stop calling him a she, its rude!

I think its fantastic the time and interest you two have put into learning about and being prepared for the little one's birth. It's a hint to what good parents you're gonna make. So glad you've had a good pregnancy overall too. Hopefully that means lots more little ones to come in the future. ;)

I am excited for you and Karl and nora/nate/him/her/etc!!! I'm looking forward to seeing that baby room in action!

and in the meantime--remember to get some r&r for kat. she has been growing another human being for a while, I think maybe she deserves it. :)

i like this care person...what a wise soul, it does take a lot of energy to grow a human!! and might i just add, you are GORGEOUS!! absolutely amazing. you make me miss my own belly...and orange tank top. ;)
