oh baby:: 40 weeks!!


Cannot believe I just typed "4-0" in the title up there. With our induction date scheduled for next Saturday, we have less than 9 days until we meet Si! We're praying that he decides to come on his own before then, and would love for you to join us in those prayers! 

I've had pretty constant, irregular Braxton Hicks since last night and I'm really hoping they decide to turn into the real deal today. 

Last week, I put together this collage of my bump photos and was hoping I wouldn't have to add a 40 week photo, but here we are! It's so fun to see how my belly has grown and looking back, I can't believe that I felt so huge in some of those earlier photos! 


People keep asking me if I'm miserable and honestly, I'm not. I'm uncomfortable, itchy, hot and tired, but I just can't help being overwhelmingly excited and thankful. A year ago, I was yearning for a baby belly and wondering when my turn would be-- if ever. So no, I'm not miserable, just grateful to be so blessed and a bit flabbergasted that I'm going to be a mama in a week or so!

  1. You are stunning. Look at that belly! I'm so excited for you two! I'll be saying a prayer for you guys that he comes ASAP. I'm pretty sure the blogging world is just as ready to meet him :)

  16. Hi Lindsay,

    Just curious, did you measure ahead during your pregnancy? You are lucky you are all bump! I think I'm getting bigger all over but I'm actually measuring a little behind! Waaah!

  17. Love the baby bump collage! I always loved seeing how much my belly had grown. =)

    I hope little Silas does decide to come soon!! If he doesn't, though, being induced isn't necessarily a bad thing. I dreaded being induced (mine was for medical reasons) and it wasn't half as bad as I thought it would be. Either way, your little man will be here soon! =)

  18. One of my babies was born the day before I was going to be induced, and the other early in the morning the day of. Hopefully he decides to make his appearance on his own for you. Good luck!

  30. You look gorgeous. I love your positive perspective. It is just an exciting time. I still can vividly remember almost two years ago holding my little lady for the first time. I stayed up all night just so I could stare at her beautiful newborn face. You are gonna be a mama soon!

    Loved to see your bump's journey through that collage.
    Thank you for your honesty and your perspective.
    As someone who's been TTC for a while, it's good to read your words and dream that (hopefully) soon it'll be my turn.
