36 Weeks

I feel great. Now that Olivia has been back in school - it's given me a break from chasing her around half the day. I feel like I can actually make it through these last few weeks.

My ultrasound this past week showed that the baby was 6.5 pounds, which is about half a pound bigger than Olivia at this point. They think she'll be anywhere from 7.5 to 8.5. Olivia was 8 - so my guess is she will be on the higher end of that range. 

I told Dan, can you believe this baby is already the size of an average newborn. He looked directly at my stomach "yes. I can." Thanks.

In our free time ;) we're just focusing on washing all the baby clothes and getting the hospital bag packed. There's really not a whole lot to do to prepare for the second. 

Olivia is so excited though. Anytime there is an open seat she will say "when baby sister gets here, she will sit here?!" 

And any time the door bell rings, for some reason she yells "Mama! Dada! Baby sister is hereeeeeee!" and runs to the door. I'm not sure if she thinks we Amazon Prime-ed her little sister. But it's always a disappointment when I tell her baby sister is still in mama's belly. 

Maybe she's hoping for free returns if it's not all its cracked up to be.


  1. You have the cutest maternity clothes! I'm glad you're feeling better, you're sooooooo close! I can't wait to see what she looks like and what you name her. Olivia is just too cute, she's going to be an amazing big sis!

  2. I LOVE that Olivia thinks baby sister will come in the mail! You still look awesome!

  3. I can't believe you've only got a few weeks left!! I loved the Olivia story about thinking the baby is going to be delivered to your door. Wouldn't that be nice?? I'd definitely pay extra for an Amazon Prime delivered baby :)

  4. I'm so glad you are feeling better!! Not much longer to go - which is crazy!! Can't wait to see this cute little one! If only Amazon Prime delivered them...

  5. haha! Free returns. That's too funny. Glad you are feeling better lady! You look amazing!

  6. bahah I love that Olivia is expecting baby sis to show up on the doorstep- hilarious! Yay for you feeling good again girl- you sure are LOOKING great so now you're really ready to knock out the next however many weeks and she'll be here SOOON!!!!!!!! xo
