40 Weeks Without...

In case you missed it over there on the side of the page:

That's right! Today's the day we've been counting down to for nine (ten) months! It seemed so far away back in June. Well it's here!

... and it's passed. I thought it would be so cool for his birthday to be 03-06-09, but he just didn't want it that way. I've had a very easy pregnancy and I just wanted to share a list.

I Was Lucky Enough To Go Forty Weeks Without
* Swollen feet or ankles
* Having to remove rings because of swollen fingers
* Wetting my pants from sneezing, coughing, laughing, etc.
* Hemorrhoids
* Having to buy bigger underwear or pajama bottoms
* Stretch marks on my belly (Thank you Mom and Mamine genes!)
* Having a stranger touch my belly
* Weird food cravings
* Pregnancy acne
* Back pain
* Constipation
* Weird scary dreams
* Increase in shoe size
* Leg cramps
* Weighing more than my dad
* Birthing a baby

Yep. After forty weeks, none of that has happened to me. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to avoid all but one in these last few days.
We decided with the doctor that if Jake hasn't come by Wednesday night (almost 6 days overdue) we will be begin induction. That means if he doesn't come before then, his birthday will be Thursday, March 12th. Check back for any new developments!


  1. You are more than patient...I was ready to be induced at 38 weeks with Ethan! Hopefully it will be before 6 days! Thinking of you guys! Enjoy your last taste of freedom for a while!


  2. I am waiting, as you are, for news of Jake's arrival! I know you are so anxious to actually meet the little guy face to face! He is giving you previews of coming attractions...not so interested in your timetable.

  3. Wow, you are so lucky to have a wonderful pregnancy. I pretty much have your list covered! Well, except birthing the baby and weighing more than my dad (he's a big guy though). But everything else you can say I have had, or still have! Can't wait till Jake gets here!

  4. Hang in there! I was late with both of mine and it was well worth it!! I know how you feel right now especially being bugged about "are you still pregnant?" questions. He will be here before you know it!! Praying for you guys!
