29 weeks and a day!

Yesterday marked 29 weeks -- and Thursday will mark 9 weeks 'til Baby Sam!!!!! (Though his daddy says he's going to come earlier than that!)

He probably weighs about 3 1/2 pounds by now. Grow, Baby, Grow!

I continue to get stares of amazement when friends and strangers think I'm "due any day!" and "ready to pop!" or "ready any minute!" Sorry, everyone, but I'm going to get a lot bigger!!! ;) Especially since this is the part where Sam starts to pack on the pounds.

I'm not sure if I got a lot bigger overnight or if maybe our little baby has "dropped" (which is normal, but perhaps a bit early). I don't remember that happening with Emma, but all of a sudden my shirts do not cover the bottom of my belly. And when I sit down? I can't (comfortably) sit up straight because my belly rests on my thighs! hahaa. I have to recline. :) I'm sure it's just me getting bigger......

Speaking of which, I am waiting very anxiously for Motherhood Maternity to send my new, larger shorts my way! I ordered them online and I know they've shipped. Now I wait. But it's soooo hot outside and I need some shorts! And I very much so disagree with their website when it says you should "order your pre-pregnancy size" in maternity clothes. Ha! Yeah right. These new shorts? They are 2 sizes up from my pre-pregnancy size...and I really hope they fit!

On Sunday, we are taking Emma to a Sibling Class at the hospital. We will have a 30 minute class, complete with diapering baby dolls, and then a hospital tour. I think she'll leave with a big sister shirt. :) I'm excited!

I can't believe (well, really I can) that we are going to have a baby in 9 weeks!!!!! I love you, Baby Sam and I can't wait to meet you and see your cute face and your tiny toes!!!!!


  1. Oh how I long to be at 29 weeks...tomorrow marks 26 for me and I am feeling weary! I do not want to have a baby too early, but I just feel tired and a bit like this pregnancy is on a SLOW train! I have followed you for a while and I am thrilled with your pregnancy so far! I too have a daughter (Chloe is 2) and I will have a baby boy (due date Nov 5th) We are in the thick of potty training and it is not going very well...I will perservere! Thanks for your blog, it encourages me through these weeks. I have been praying and will continue to pray for you, baby Sam and your sweet family.

  2. You really need to print all this and put it in Sam's little baby book that you crafted. Your blogs are absolutely fabulous, and a treasure to us all.......including lucky Sam.

    Love, GJ
