come out little baby.


Today was a doctors appointment. He was going to stip my membranes, but no. I am locked up tight. Sarah hasn't dropped yet either. It is really depressing...
My ultrasound went fine and my fluid numbers have come down. They measured her and she is about 7 lbs. 10 oz. I think if I actually go to 39 weeks, when I will be induced, she may be at least 9 lbs. at least.
I am hoping my water breaks, like with Brinley, and I can just go in sometime this weekend...one can dream. Of course, because I am wanting her to come, she is going to be stubborn and stay in there.
My contractions are getting stronger, but not consistent and I could really do without throwing up, it makes me really tired and the indigestion gets really bad. Oh, and have you ever thrown up during a contraction? Not so fun.

Maybe he stirred things up when he checked you. I will be thinking about you.

The last couple of weeks are the worst because you know it could be anyday, but it just never seems to get moving. She'll be here before you know it. Sucks about the indegestion and throwing up, but only 2 more weeks. You've made it a long way. Glad to hear she is looking good and the fluids are back to normal

I'm so sorry! As if the last eternity, i mean month, of pregnancy isn't awful enough! I can't imagine how horrible and exhausting throwing up would be! They always take their own sweet time it seems! Keep being your strong amazing self! You're almost there!

Good luck, Arah! I know how hard the end can be (Dayne was over 10 lbs., remember??). Hey, how DO you post pics with text like that? LOVE it!

Here's what I always thought about subsequent children (after my first) "at least the baby is feeding itself and changing it's own diaper" - - - I know doesn't help much when you can't sleep, breath or eat. Love you darlin' we are praying for you!!

Cute belly pictures! Somehow it seems whenever you want the baby to come, they decide to stay a little longer, and when you are not ready yet, they decide to pop out early! For your sake, I hope she comes soon so she is not too big--Jake was 8-3 and it almost killed me (I know, I am a big sissy and tons of ladies have bigger babies, but seriously-how?). Anyway, I will be bringing you guys some dinner on Tuesday the 4th, baby or no baby! I hope all goes well in the meantime!

you look great Arah!

I HAVE thrown up during a contraction and I will never eat peanut butter brownies again!

Good luck to you and your family. Can't wait to see pictures of Sarah Mae!

Oh sweet Arah. I remember how Brinley was going to be 10 lbs and there she was in all her 6 pound glory. Remember how we all looked at you like "is there another one in there?" cause she was so small. But she made up for it in personality didn't she? So sorry about the throwing up and I remember just how bad the indigestion can be. Oh man, what a pain. Ok, well you are down to a matter of days. I expect a phone call any day now. We are so excited. I bet you can't wait to get your hands on her and check out every inch of her. She is going to be amazing. Brinley won't know what to do, she will be so happy to have that little sister to love. Good luck. Love you...

The only good thing about a large baby is all the cute chub they have when they are tiny. I have never tried throwing up with a contraction, nor do I want to. It sounds miserable. We are thinking about you and Sarah and have a little something to send your way. Hang in there. We love you!

You look so beautiful in your pictures! I love that first one. I know exactly what it feels like to be so ready you could just scream. Hang in there, she'll come when the time is right!
