31 Weeks and Counting!

So here is my view looking down! Seems like we have been too busy for belly pictures, so I took one of myself. I am carrying her very low and my belly seems a lot more pointy than with Mike. I am at the point where all do is think about how she will look. I think she will look like her brother, but with blue eyes. For awhile I was having dreams she was a boy. Then this week I had two dreams of a blue eyed, blond hair baby. In these dreams people would ask me if it was a boy or girl and I didn't even know. Finally last night, I had my first girl dream and she looked like me as a toddler... blue eyes, blond curls, and a runny nose- ha! I am now seeing the doctor every two weeks and she will start checking for progression at 35 weeks. I am a little nervous because by 36 weeks I was dilated to a three and 80% effaced with Mike. One of the wonderful things about a c-section is having total control of the arrival of #2. With no family in town, a full work load, and a two year old to care for, the drama of labor and my water breaking is just not an option! I am predicting an October 28th birthday and that she will be 7 pounds even, 21 1/2 inches, red hair, blue eyes, and have her days and nights all mixed up. Mike was such an easy baby and Adelyn has been different since day one! Of course I really don't care about any of those details, after everything we have been through, I just want to hold her and for the first time in a really long time have not a speck of worry in my heart.


  1. Pregnant woman rock! I hope this last little bit goes smoothly for you!

  2. Hang in there! No matter what, she's going to be a beautiful little girl! Can't wait to meet her. By the way, toally trying your chicken recipe from last week or the week before with the cream cheese and totally making my first bow holder this weekend. Got my frame and ribbon ready.

  3. Yeah for you! and if you guys want to do a backyard chalkboard we have lots of paint I can give you... it goes a long way! Let me know!

  4. I am so excited for you to have that first moment holding her in your arms! I would have a million babies for that moment!!

  5. OH MY!! I just saw you in July, what 2 months can do to a pregnant girl. Wish I was there to take pics for you but this one is cool. Buts thinks into perspective from you point of view. I can't wait to see her & hold her!!!!!!!!!! Luv ya LaLa
