Full Term Baby!

Here is the post where I'm 9 months pregnant.

All you girls out there that think one day you'll grow up, get married, and have a baby or two, just know it doesn't stop AT 9 months, you are pregnant for 9 FULL months. Well, if you're me you are. Some girls get to skip to the baby in the arms part at 37-38 weeks, but I just don't think that's how it works for me. Though if any of you would like to pray otherwise, I won't stop you!

This is the blogpost where you get to leave the guess as to when Miss Immanuelle Marie will arrive! I know you've been anxiously waiting for it!

Here's fuel to help you all make informed guesses:
* I'm now 38 weeks 3 days pregnant and due October 10. 
* Isaac was born at 40 weeks + 5 days by C-section
* I haven't really had any contractions- Braxton Hicks or the real kind!
* October 4 (39 weeks) is when we head to the capital city to wait on i3. We plan to deliver in the same hospital and with the same doctor as with Isaac.
* It takes 3.5 hours to get to the hospital in the capital city from our house that is not in the capital city (for all you folks thinkin' she'll come before 39 weeks) There is a hospital about 5 minutes from our house that is my back-up.
* I plan to try and deliver i3 naturally (VBAC)...which is why I wanted my same doc and hospital!
* Isaac was 4.03kgs...which we think was right at 9lbs, maybe under. He was not fat and neither was I.

* My parents arrive Friday October 7 at 9:30pm.

36 weeks... a couple days before my sewing machine broke. Anthony thought the threads on my belly were funny. When my sewing machine gets fixed, I'll post pics of her room! Not done yet!
Us making the "template" for painting polka dots in the nursery. The picture though is to show my belly at 37 weeks. And yes, I needed help to get off the floor.
38 weeks and getting a pedicure. My toes are now pink and sparkly. I painted them blue before Isaac came. Next week if she's still not here, I'm going to get them repainted in the capital. Why? Why not!?!

Post your guesses!

Here's mine...just because I like playing too...and am hopeful...
9-10-11  Sunday, October 9, 2011 (in "not-America", the date is written DD-MM-YY...and I like this particular birthdate. You may write yours the American way or not-American way )
Hospital in the Capital City
(you may post yours in pounds or kilograms. 3ish kgs is somewhere in the 7lbs range)

Wow lots of options you have permitted us! ;) You look SO super cute. I remember being jealous of your baby bump when we were pregnant together with Isaac and Hazel - glad I'm not pregnant again right now, or I'd be jealous again! :)

October 12

Btw, I really hope you get a VBAC, because 1, you REALLY want one, and 2, I'm curious to hear the comparison between the two birthing options. (neither of which is really that appealing...)

October 5th and sticking with it (especially now that I know you'll be close to your doctor by then). I know you want your parents to be there and I want to say later but I can't get this date out of my mind :)

and you do look fabulous sharon...i was pregnant all over with all three...would have loved just a belly bump!

Well, I am praying for a delivery ANYTIME after 11:30 pm on October 7th. I think we can get from the airport to the hospital by then.

However, I will make an official prediction for Oct. 10th; 8lb baby; born in the hospital. I chose these stats only because Immanuelle has four relatives born on the 10th of different months, and it's close enough to the full moon on the 12th.

I think we could make a better guess at Immanuelle's weight if Sharon would have coughed up her weight gain this time and last time.

Can't wait to cuddle with all 3i's!!

Oh, Mary Lou, right or wrong, no hard feelings.
