37 Weeks!

Praise the Lord! Robert is full term! Yay!

Any day now... actually any day in the next month or so... our little son will make his arrival.

Robert should weigh around 6 lbs and measure around 19 inches (stalk of Swiss Chard).

Though they are uncomfortable, I am very thankful the Lord gave women "practice runs" for labor in Braxton Hicks contractions. They are a wonderful preparation for what real contractions will be like, and give me practice in how to breathe through a contraction. 

Oh! I can't wait to cuddle my little boy and see what he looks like!


  1. Us too~ Praying your next days/weeks are comfortable, calm, and cool! We love you! My camera is ready!

  2. Praise the LORD! Love you! Continuing in prayer for you!

  3. Full term? Aren't you a little early...thought you wouldn't be full term until at least July 1st (unless I can't count)???? And Braxton Hicks!!! First babies are usually 2 weeks late, hope not for you.

    1. Yes mam! A baby is considered full term at 37 weeks, and I read that Braxton Hicks actually happen for most of the pregnancy, the mom just doesn't notice until the later weeks when they become stronger.
