36 Weeks...

Yay!!  We made it to 36 weeks safe and sound. Don't get me wrong, I am all for having this baby early, but 5 1/2 weeks just seemed a little too early for me! But now that I am more or less in the "safe" zone, you better believe that I am going to be off my tush and doing some serious power walking, cleaning, jumping jacks, maybe even get a pedicure... whatever it takes! I am aiming to have the little dude this weekend, as Nate's parent's will be in town for my nephew's baptism, and it would be really nice to have some parental units already in town to watch Asher when we go to the hospital. But he is not allowed to come on Friday from about noon, to Saturday morning, (or during the baptism, that would just be rude!). Nate has a gig in Jackson Hole that he is going to, as long as I'm not in labor or anything. How sad would that be if he missed the little guy being born? Although Nate does think it would be cool if he were to be born on the 29th... leap year

But, I am also OK if he decides to wait a little longer, whenever he's ready is fine with me. Except, my Dr says he will induce me at 39 weeks, and I really don't want to be induced, so just as long as it's before then! I'm getting nervous all over again about the delivery, as I really have no idea what to expect, considering our whirlwind experience last time. I'm sure it will all be great, just pray that I don't have the baby in the car!! 

Anyway... I thought I'd also include a picture of me at a chubby 36 weeks, just to document, even though I get no pleasure in showing this to you.

You don't look chubby at all. You are a darling 36-week pregnant mom! I wish I looked like you pregnant!

Good luck! I can't wait to see your little baby!

Natalie said...

I second Hannah's remark, I think you look amazing. I hope No. 2 comes early — I was induced and I'd like to avoid it next time if I can. I tried everything to get my little guy to come early but the dude was just too comfy inside! Good luck!

You look great. Did you have a terrible experiene with delivering Asher?

Josh and Michelle said...

Morgs, you look so good. Its making really sad though because I am only 26 weeks and i swear my belly looks as big as yours. That is so exciting that he could come anytime now. How come they will induce at 39 weeks? Too bad that you cant come with to JH it would be so fun to see you.

Morgan, you seriously look great. Much better than I did at 36 weeks the last time around. I know how you feel, though, I'm only 15 weeks and feel like a big fat cow. Did I mention how much I love sweat pants these days?

Seriously, castor oil will help that baby come along. If you want to know my story about castor oil, just ask :) Good luck and let us know how things go!

heather, no it wasn't a horrible experience, just a very fast experience, which was actually really nice. it just makes me nervous if this one goes as fast, or maybe faster. (i was fully dilated when i got to the hospital, and went to the hospital the moment i felt pain).

michelle, they just want to induce me because i went so fast last time. and i know, i would love to see you guys. i had a dream about you last night, and you were pregnant, but you were sooo tiny, i was jealous!

tabitha, my mother swears by castor oil as well. she even bought be a bottle last time hoping that i would use it. my sister used it too. i will use that if i get desperate, like the day before they induce me!! but i want to hear your story!!

GLad you made it this far... Thanks for your comment, interesting to hear people say they want to avoid it... I've really only heard positive, so it's good to hear the other side. You look great!

Morgan, you look like a HOTTIE pregnant gal. You DON'T look AT ALL like a tub-O. I am excited to see your newest addition. Geeze, I better get on the bandwagon. I am a few kids behind the folk dance gals! :) And just because I think you'll like this- I'm listening to Kate Rusby right now.

you look completely adorable. I wouldn't even guess you are that far along. How lucky you are that you don't look like you are literally going to "pop."

Heidi said...

Oh do you really think you will have him this weekend? My baby better not come when I am at 36 weeks because I am going on a trip then! Not really recommended but I am chancing it.
