How we've grown...

32 Weeks

36 Weeks
38 Weeks

I really appreciate all the emails, comments, and facebook messages asking how I have been and how close I am to "the end."  I am almost 38 weeks.  Adeline came at 39 weeks, so I really could go into labor at any time.  I am going to see the midwife weekly, and everything looks good.....baby's head is down, heart rate is fine, I'm gaining about a pound a week at this point, and still this little one remains quite active.  I think it soon needs to be getting too tight in there for the sweeping movements across my belly, not that I'm complaining...I love it.  

Patrick and I have been discussing how we have been much more lax about preparing for the arrival of this one.  We are planning to pack a bag tomorrow.  I did wash clothes, burp clothes, and other necessities last week (while also getting out and washing all of Adeline's summer clothes). 

Next week looks CRAZY!  I am working Mon-Wed.  It seems nuts, but they have several people out, and I agreed a while ago to help.  In addition, I have something almost every evening next week...including a midwife apt.  After this week, my calendar gets a lot clearer (not that I'm going to be busy with a newborn and a toddler or anything).  Thanks for your prayers as the time draws near.  We are so excited to meet this little boy or girl.  By the way, any guesses?

Yes - you have really "popped"! Can't wait to hear the news of the new arrival. I was thinking girl, but lately when I see your blog I think boy. We'll see - It'll be a blessing and loved either way!

I'm thinking girl.

But, I am almost always wrong. I was right once. About a month ago. And, I don't think it's possible for me to be right "twice" in a month when I've been wrong for 30 years.

Either way, can't wait to meet and smooch this little one!

I think you're going to have a baby human.

LYNN!! My goodness. Such a lot has happened in 10 months! I am just re-joining the blogging world and I thought I would pop on over here to see what was new with you. Sorry -- maybe I shouldn't say "pop" to a person in your condition! I know I won't be able to read all your posts to bring me up to date. Can you give me a quickie? Obviously you have big news (am I allowed to say "big?"), but where are you living now? And you're working? What about teaching Bradley?

Looking forward to catching up one way or another.

You look adorable! You're carrying really high it appears! How did you carry with Adeline? I was high with Caden. I'm thinking boy for you! :) Can't wait to meet him/her!

You look beautiful! I love the green shirt you have on at 38 weeks....very flattering. :) Can't wait to hear all about Baby Rohal's appearance!!!

Dave and Jenni said...

Wow, 38 weeks already! This time has seemed to go so quickly as one of your bloggy friends. Can't wait to see who comes out!!!

I am so bad at this guessing thing, but I'll say BOY.

Ya know, I wasn't sure how I'd feel about having a boy myself, especially since I LOVED having a girl. I was excited and all when we found out our second was a boy, but you just have these crazy doubts!

Well, I now know that that was just plain crazy! I can't stop kissing my little man--I'm smitten. :o)

So very excited to welcome WHOEVER happens to arrive!

Growin' with it! said...

i wish my "belly" looked that cute! hahaha. yea for the light at the end of the tunnel to be getting brighter! hmm, *girl* is my answer. you have WAY too many adorable outfits that need handed down from adeline!

Anonymous said...

Nice dresses! You look a little tired in that last pic, but you don't have the "I'm miserable and about to pop" look. Don't push it this week! Love you!

How cute! Glad you're doing well!

joana ahn said...

oh my gosh, i hadn't realized it was so close. i was pretty busy at the end too. it's better that way, you don't sit around wishing and going crazy thinking every little cramp is "it". :P enjoy and i can't wait to see pictures when the new addition does come. i have no idea what it could be. the fact that the baby is active makes me think boy but ava was active. so really i'm totally clueless. love you guys!

Mrs. Fix said...

I totally think it's a boy. And you are looking awesome. It was fun to garden shop with you today - can't wait to see how your yard ends up looking!

Janelle said...

You look amazing! Can't wait for the big reveal! Boy or girl, will be the perfect addition to your sweet family. And no fear on loving #2 as much as Adeline. Your heart just grows bigger with each kiddo.

Lots of love!

Kristen said...

you look adorable, just adorable. you are such a cute pregnant person.

i am usually wrong with my guesses but i am going for a boy. someone told me when i was pregnant with landon that i had an 80% chance of having a boy since i had a girl first. i will go with the stats and say boy.

i am so excited for you. can't wait for the little rohal to arrive :o)

Monica said...

oh, the last few weeks of pregnancy. You must be so anxious to be able to see your feet again and have your body back. You look awesome!
My guess is a girl.

Mary@notbefore7 said...

LOVE the pictures - I wasn't so good about that this time :)

Can't wait to hear the news!

Mary@notbefore7 said...

OH - I think girl :)

Amanda Evans said...

I'm going to guess girl. You look super cute pregnant, BTW. Miss ya! Good luck with the delivery and everything...should be any day now, right?
