Fashion Pregnancy

Gray and Black

It’s so crazy that I only have about a month left of this pregnancy (give or take, since my babies like to come whenever they want, and when they want has always been LATE).

This has been my easiest pregnancy, physically, with the least morning sickness and exhaustion, but I’m definitely ready to not be pregnant anymore.

I went in for a (hopefully) last ultrasound at the high-risk doctor at 33 weeks and after one of their super-long and thorough ultrasounds, the tech estimated that my baby was currently 5 pounds.

So, I may be looking at delivering another enormous baby like Star (who was just over 10 pounds), which doesn’t sound like a super fun delivery, but I did appreciate what a good eater and sleeper a giant baby was from the very first.

Also, I was induced with Ani and she was born in less than four hours from when they started the induction, and then Star was born in two hours from when my water broke, with my actual labor time (when I started feeling uncomfortable contractions at all) taking less than 45 minutes, so I’m a littttttle nervous about how fast this whole thing might go down.

The hospital I’ll be delivering at doesn’t induce before 41 weeks, so we’re basically prepared to drop everything and race to the hospital if my water breaks or I go into labor before then since odds are that the whole thing could happen really quickly.

And one of Bart’s life goals, surprisingly, is NOT to deliver a baby in the car.

And let me tell you, it’s not one of my life goals either.

    The anxiety before the fact is pretty much the only downside to a quick labor, though, right? Fingers crossed everything goes just right for everyone . . .

    (I’m not yet pregnant with a fourth child, but we’re not not trying either–if that makes sense–and I’m already stressing out about what would happen at delivery time with a fourth child if it went as quickly as I suspect it might, and we have three little boys and don’t know anyone well enough here to dump our kids on them on short notice. And we live 25 miles from the nearest hospital. And the weather here in the winter can be really, REALLY bad. But, as I said, I’m not even pregnant yet, so I’m trying to ignore these thoughts for the moment.)

    You look beautiful! Good luck with your delivery. 🙂

    Here’s to hoping your last baby won’t make you be pregnant for an extra week… and there’s time to get to the hospital. I have the same fear with how fast Em came that baby #3 (not an announcement), won’t wait for the car ride or the epidural either.

    We must be due around the same time! This is our first and we are so excited. Where is that awesome sweater from? The link to it goes to the jeans instead 🙂 Hope we both have a fast…but not too fast…delivery. My husband has memorized the “accidental home birth” instructions from our class: “Wash your hands, catch the baby, don’t cut the cord.” Haha!

      This is actually an old sweater from Old Navy (non-maternity). I fixed the link to go to a similar one – thanks for the heads up!
