Spring/Summer 2012 Baby Bumps!

Weekly update July 30 - August 5

Well since Becca has now given birth, I figured I would start the thread this time!


I am 41 weeks today. Since I am a week past my due date I had to have the NST and u/s done. Everything looked great for fluid, cord, etc. She was sleeping during the NST so they had to buzz her to wake her up, which she was not happy about! haha but her heartbeat was fine. No contractions though. They estimated her weight to be 6lbs 12 oz which sounds great to me! After, I met with my doctor. I am only 50% effaced and 1 cm dilated. The doc tried to loosen the membranes to help too. Last week she said she would probably induce on 7/31 to give birth on 8/1. When we met today she said she is also on call 8/4 so we had the option to start inducing on 7/31 or 8/3. I really want a natural child birth and we are struggling with which date. We are likely going to induce tomorrow, but I will make sure to report back and update you all.

Nearly everyone has had their babies!


Nancy - So great to hear that she is doing great in there, just taking her time. It must be a tough choice on when to induce.  I hope you have a great labor and delivery either way!


I am 32 weeks and 3 days.  Not much to report this week. I feel really good in general and I'm thankful for that. This weekend is the first of my 3 baby showers with my husband's side of the family.  We will have a nice weekend celebrating his birthday in Santa Barbara in addition to the shower.  I hope everyone is doing well!

I guess we are the last few left :(


I'm only 32 weeks 5 days and when I joined this group I knew I'd be on the tail end of all of the baby deliveries.


I'm feeling great so far though.  I just find myself more winded than usual since my lungs are being compressed with baby goodness.  :)


DH and I have our maternity pic session tomorrow evening, and we are leaving for Atlanta for one last fun weekend trip with just the two of us.  Next weekend is our first baby shower and then we have two more after that.


Nursery is still a work in progress and I'm getting antsy to finish it!!!  Still waiting on a lot of stuff to come in though.  


Hope all is well with everyone!  Hang in there!
