37 weeks, and counting down...

Well here is what I am supposed to look like (if my baby wasn't huge like her mommy who has gained over 50 pounds). Anyway, we are counting down until little Madelyn is here. Josh comes home on Monday from Europe, and honestly I am cool if she comes Tuesday! They say babies are completely full term at 37 weeks. (Yay! We made it!!) Her lungs are developed to a point where she can function on her own outside of the womb and she is big enough, and long enough, to avoid the NICU. So with as hot and as uncomfortable as I have been the past couple of days, I am ready. Now we just have to wait for her to be ready, and this future fashionista (as Pauline called her) better not be fashionably late. :o)

After our little was born I missed being pregnant so much!! (If someone had said to me at 39 weeks, "You're gonna miss this". I would have thought they were insane Your post brings back such great memories for me! Hugs, Jen

Once Josh gets home and we finish the nursery, there will be pics for sure. I will even try and get some of my huge belly. I want to remember how big I am (and never be this big again!)

Well, Sarah and Jenni, I loved being pregnant. Then again, I didn't have many problems while pregnant, all mine came during the delivery!

I hope that Madelyn isn't late either, that was probably the worst part. But I'll tell you what everyone kept telling me (which I know is not what you want to hear): most babies are born AFTER their due date. (But let's hope that not the case!)
