Week 39: This way out, Baby

This week's doctor visit confirmed that Baby B is still no closer to delivery and that Doctor had a great time in Mexico! Baby must really be happy in his current home! We'll see how the rest of the week goes, but if there is no action by next week's visit (the official due date), then we'll weigh our options of inducing labor or waiting it out another two weeks at most. As of today, we've passed all the dates that folks asked us to wait for, so Baby, whenever you are ready ... make a run for it!

Week 38: Home Sweet Belly

At today's doctor visit, the doctor (well, the nurse really ... doctor is still in Mexico!) said Baby hasn't made any more progress toward labor than last week, so he seems pretty happy in his cozy little home. All my stats were good. Actually, I lost a pound since last week's visit, which the nurse said is a common and interesting trend in the last weeks of pregnancies. We're still taking it easy here and just waiting around for the little guy to get moving!

Week 37: Baby doctor goes to Mexico?!

Baby B and I had another good visit with the doctor this week. She was happy with our progress. Thankfully Baby isn't any closer to delivery because the good doctor is going on vacation in Mexico next week! I have heard requests from friends and family to work the delivery date around their schedules, but I did not expect to hear it from my doctor, too! Everyone keep your fingers crossed that Baby decides to gestate a while longer!

Week 37: My new maternity role model

Did everyone see the Grammy Awards Sunday night? If not, you missed an amazing performance by a very pregnant British rapper M.I.A. Not only did she perform ON HER DUE DATE with four of the biggest names in rap in front of a huge audience at the Staples Center, she wore a bold body-baring outfit that left no doubt she had a bun in the oven. See for yourself ...

She told the Wall Street Journal, "Eating a hot curry could make me go into labour, so imagine what getting on stage with Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and TI would do?" I was worried for her as well.

Now, I will not be wearing this on my due date nor performing with Jay-Z, but it gives a girl a boost of confidence to see a mama strutting her stuff like that!

Week 36: The doctor says I am boring ...

... and boring is good! At this week's doctor appointment, she was happy with all our stats and expects a normal and uneventful delivery. However, Doctor was surprised at how ready Baby's position is for labor and said an early delivery is possible! Of course, Baby could decide to slow down and arrive on time or late. That means the baby pool is still on ... keep the predictions coming!
