Full Term!

I have officially reached the 37-week mark as of today which is (thankfully!) considered full term.  With the news last week that I was already dilated to 4cm, none of us (Kurt, Dr. Hoover, me) thought we'd make it through the weekend much less this entire week.  And after my appointment this morning, it appears Lucas is still holding strong in my belly.  I have always thought that the longer a baby "bakes," the better - so I'm all about him staying in there as long as possible!  Only God knows when he'll come...and as anxious as we are about when that time will actually be, we are certainly planning to cherish our last few hours/days/weeks as a small family of 3 (well, 4 including Ro-Ro)!

So, that was a pretty anti-climatic post, huh?  I don't really have any news to share other than...I'M STILL PREGNANT :)

I'll leave you with two recent pictures, both taken on Kurt's birthday.  We were able to celebrate with a quiet night out, just the two of us...and it was exactly what we needed.  I love that man so much.  He blesses me so very much, and I love celebrating his birthday every year!


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these pics! You both look so wonderful.....(Knox too, of course) Happy news on baby Cucus's impending arrival. I wonder who likes celebrating Kurt's birthday more-me or you! I don't think I can love him any more than you do, but I've loved him longer!

  2. Don't you just love the Dr. appt. that says, "You could have this baby anyday!" and anyday is really anyday in the next few weeks?! I was like you with my son for 3.5 weeks. With baited breath I sat through trials, court proceedings and home visits praying my water wouldn't break. It didn't. Cherish those last days as a family of three. P.S. You look fantastic!
