Baby News, or the lack of it!

No baby yet.

That's right, I'm past due :(

Besides feeling a bit impatient I'm feeling pretty good.

I don't particularly like the idea of my already big baby (they guess between 8-9 lbs) growing an extra 1/2 pound each week! The perinatologist was stunned that the little guy had grown so much. A couple months ago she didn't think it would be possible for him to be more than 7 or 7.5 lbs. Ha. There are Bartlett genes for you. There is no escaping a huge baby in my family, even if you marry into it and are barely 5 ft tall!

Here's a photo I had James take last night. Not exactly the most flattering photo but I'm always thinking about how I need to take some photos to document my pregnancy but I never feel like I look very nice when I remember to take a photo so it never happens. This time I decided we had better take a photo or I'd only have my post baby flab to photograph. Now THAT is not the best thing to photograph :)

I totally understand the past due feeling. and the worrying about a huge baby! Good luck with everything. I'm sure you'll do great! The second will be easier than the first.

Rachel, YOU. LOOK. GORGEOUS. !!! I'm eagerly waiting for pictures of the next Rowell Cutie!! Maybe those U/S pix are overestimating his weight because when I was expecting Brian, the U/S estimated he'd weigh almost 9 lbs or more and he only weighed 8 lbs 3 oz. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

No fun to be overdue! Are you going to be induced? Isn't your birthday coming up? I'm so out of the loop. Good luck. Have a baby soon!

You look great! I am way excited for you! I am guessing it is going to be any day now (if you haven't already had your baby)! Christian was 8 lbs 14 oz and he was a day early!
