36 Weeks and Anxiously Waiting


At 36 weeks, the baby weighs almost 6 lbs. and is about 18 1/2 inches long. She' pretty much just plumping up now, getting ready to make her appearance. Mommy and Daddy can't wait to have her here! Since our adventure in the hospital on Saturday night, we have been anxiously waiting for the "real" labor pains to happen. Everything is prepped and ready for her! The car seat is in the car, the pack n' play up in our room, the hospital bags packed, laundry washed...basically we have done everything we can to prepare for her and now we are just waiting! (And waiting, waiting, waiting...)

I'm trying to remind myself I still have 4 whole weeks until her due date but it's hard to imagine it being that long before she comes. Especially since I have been having pretty much nonstop contractions since Saturday night. We will just have to wait and see what progress has been made by our appointment on Friday!

Come back tomorrow to find out what we are naming our baby girl! I decided it's probably not going to change at this point, and I can't wait to share the name any longer!

I always plan on having a baby at 41 weeks. That way I'm not disappointed, lol. I'm sure you know most first time moms go over, even with weeks of contractions : ( Hope baby is ready before then for your sake!! I'm rooting for your baby to be ready by 40 weeks, too : )Try to enjoy these last weeks. You might just miss them when they are over!

I would be going crazy with anticipation if I was in your shoes! But since I've had no signs of any kind of pain, I'm just hoping mine stays in there until at least I'm done work on the 2nd, but better if she waits another week after that to give me some relax and vacation time. Not that if she came early I wouldn't be super excited too.
I can't wait to hear the name you picked! We have ours picked out but haven't really told anyone yet.
