Another Whopper!

This is not a very good picture of me but it’s what I’ve got… I’ve had pink eye in both eyes this week… the left first then the right… and now Morgan has it.

Well I posted yesterday that I was 36 weeks pregnant… that was an error… I’m 35.5 weeks. I guess with the 3rd you tend to lose track this late in the game. He’s due July 14th which is Paiger Raiger’s 2nd Birthday.

After 3+ hours in the OB’s office (99% of which was sitting and waiting) we have been informed of few stats (none of which surprise us because the girls weren’t exactly small). He currently weighs in at 6 lbs 10 oz and can (but hopefully won’t) gain up to a 1lb a week between now and then… um let’s hope that’s not the case (that would be 10 lbs 10 oz and I’m certain that would nearly kill me). His head (which is measured in weeks rather than cm or inches) is measuring 38 weeks BIG rather than the 35.5 weeks that he is. So, we hope it tapers down some… and he’s in the 75-80 percentile for overall size! And no progress from my body on evacuating him from his home {ie: 0 cm dilated}.

    You are THE cutest little pregnant woman I’ve ever seen! I’m so excited that you are cooking up a post on sewing and all the odds and ends that go along with that. I really am interested in starting, but don’t know where to even begin. Hopefully in that post you can give some helpful hints to us beginners. Also, in your spare time…hehe…could you do a post on starting a garden. I know you are laughing, but I really want to have a small garden with tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, etc. Is it too late to start? You obviously are inspiring me to do LOTS. Maybe one thing at a time….we’ll see. Praying for you as you round up these last few weeks of pregnancy.

    I used to get pink eye from the pool, maybe that’s your culprit. Yuck, it’s so miserable.

    My babies are all really petite, so good luck!! As for the memory with the third, it only gets worse!!

    Darby, you look great and it is definitely all baby! The weight is just an estimate so maybe he isn’t as big as they think. I can’t wait to see pictures of him when he arrives…..hopefully sooner rather than later for your sake 🙂

    Girl, you look fabulous! If you want to make yourself feel better, just look at my pics on my blog near the end of my 3rd pregnancy – wowzers (click the pregnancy category). I was HUGE. I have gargantuan babies (10.2#, 9.6# and 9#). Enjoy this time as much as you can, he’ll be here before you know it 🙂

    Oh my gosh, you are so tiny! Looks like a beach ball under your shirt! My entire body managed to swell at the end of my pregnancy… I’m jealous!

    That is a large, but beautiful tummy! That 10 lb suggestion would make me a little fearful, too!

    Can’t wait to meet him…what’s his name? Are you sharing, or not???

    Darby you look fabulous!!! So adorable!!! Sorry to hear about the pink eye- I had it earlier this year and was so fearful I would pass it to Fin. Poor Morgan!

    Can you like wear a really tight belt and shrink that baby’s head down or something?

    I’m jealous because you are ALL belly! SO cute!

    My doc told me with my last pregnancy then I just don’t grow small babies! Both of mine have been almost 9lbs and my guess is #3(due in Sept) will be a biggun’ too!
