35 weeks.

IMG_5030 (2)

So you all may be slightly disturbed at just how large one baby belly can be at 35 weeks, a photo.

I have outgrown nearly all my clothes, I’m not quite to my due date, and the email I got this morning telling me of my stage in pregnancy stated that baby “just puts on weight for the next month”. Yippee. My midwife tells me this baby will more than likely tip the scales as my biggest baby. Sterling, Ruby, and Pierce were 9 lbs.-9 lbs. 2 oz., so I’m a bit intimidated by that thought.

Putting socks on at this point is my daily feat. Shoes that tie are out of the question.

I love the camouflage Adrienne. I'll bet your back will love you when that baby finally makes an entrance. We're praying for a safe delivery and a healthy baby.

Amazingly enough, my back has not bothered me hardly at all. The ligaments in my belly, however, are a different matter. It's funny to look at the photos... the first few I took had a definite arch in my back. Compensation, I suppose.

I was wondering if you were going to do a picture. I know it is hard to do one of yourself, but thought you might get your oldest to make it.

I know you will be so glad when the delivery day gets here. It seems to me you have been pregnant forever. HAHAHA!!! Don't know why it seems so long to me. I am sure it is longer for you.
