Then and now


Pictured left: 35 weeks pregnant with Chloe; pictured right: 35 weeks pregnant with R/P. Same shirt.

Had a doctor's appointment this afternoon. All is well with baby. When Dr. Baer was feeling around to determine his/her positioning, s/he gave him a few good hard kicks. Can't blame the poor kid. I know I don't like being poked at! My cervix is still hard as a rock, which is good because Neil will be in Vegas for the rest of this week (on business), and is heading to Dallas next Friday to attend the sealing of a family he worked with on his mission. Not that I could even imagine going into labor between now and then, but I'll still be relieved when he's finished with his travels.

My next doctor's appointment is in two weeks, then they become weekly until I deliver! AH! Between that and our hospital tour last week, the reality that in a few short weeks I'll be meeting, holding, snuggling and loving on this baby is really starting to sink in!

Dayna, I love you! I love how you are excited for this baby!

And sweet Valeri, you look wonderful...relaxed, happy, calm....absolutely beautiful. Your belly looks pretty much the same in both pictures, right?

Well, I feel the same as you two girls....can hardly wait to snuggle the dear little one, and Chloe too! I'm having heavy withdrawals right now!

Safety and good luck to Neil in his travels, and to all of you at home. Happy your reunion when he returns.

Love love love,
Mama/Gma Jill

Only a few more weeks! Wow! Let me know if you need anything...like a nap. I'd be happy to take Chloe for a few hours.

You look super cute pregnant although you probably don't feel that way at 35 weeks! Good luck getting everything ready in these coming weeks. I can hardly believe that it is almost November.....where does the time go?

Glad to hear the doctor's appointment went well. I'm sure you and your husband are getting so excited! Good luck in the next few weeks. I love the updates!

You look so cute, I can't believe you will have a little one soon. Seems like your pregnancy has gone so fast, probably not too you though - ha ha. Brynlee is exctied for activity days but yes we are still gone so we will catch the next one. Is our house still standing? Good luck with everything :)

That is so exciting that you only have a few weeks left. What a nice thought to hold and snuggle a tiny new baby.

I can't believe it is so close, any day really :) but even more I can't believe I won't be there to snuggle your little one :( & who knows how old he/she will be when I do get to snuggle them. No Aunt April this time.......can't wait to find out who is joining your family!

You look amazing and so happy. I love seeing pregnant mommies, so close to D-day. Can't wait to find out what you are having...by the way, thanks for keeping it a secret. I always wanted to, but when there is another mommy involved, I really can't NOT find out. If you catch my drift. Lovin' it!

So, so exciting! I was more anxious with my second one than with Mason. I guess because I knew what was coming. :) Great to hear things are going so well.

Wendy said...

Thanks for the update. It's good to hear all is well. I still can't believe how fast it's gone!

Rachel said...

Oh how I wish I was in your place! It is so exciting that you'll be holding your sweet babe so soon. You look so great. I can't wait to get together after you've had some time to recoop to meet the little bundle of joy!

So very exciting! I'm so glad you took a photo with the same shirt -- very clever. Does R stand for Rebecca? :)
