Full Term and on Standby

Mike took this picture of me after church (and a trip to Dunkin' Donuts!) this morning. Glazed munchkins certainly aren't helping my figure at this point, but the point of me caring has most definitely passed. :) I'm considered full term now with three more weeks to go - if I go on time. I'm due Aug. 9.

So far I've had no reason to think I'll go early. I feel better than I have for most of the pregnancy, in fact. This has been almost a carbon copy of my pregnancy with Abby Kate. So if that's any indication for labor timing... well then I may just go to 41 weeks again.

We went to the hospital's maternity open house to check things out last week. Seeing the rooms made me a little nervous, knowing labor is eminent!

Nonetheless, I'm so excited that we'll get to meet Avery soon and that I'll be on my way to feeling 'normal' again.

I'm having lovely daydreams of going for long runs. We recently got a new double jogging stroller that is simply the best thing ever. I researched one for weeks and I am so, so pleased with the BOB Ironman Sport Utility stroller. I would highly recommend it if you want a stroller built for long, safe runs with your kids. It is so light and smooth and handles 1,000 times better than my first single Jeep jogger. I'll link the pic to info about the stroller if you happen to be looking for one. It also comes in a single. (Thanks to all my friends who gave me gift certificates to BabiesRUs at my shower! We will get SO much use out of this stroller.)

MIss you!

Hooray!!! You look awesome! Can't wait for more news!

I think double joggers are way easier to maneuver than single joggers. I was just dreaming of relative weightlessness and long runs too. I was trying to power walk with both girls in the stroller (~70 lbs at this point) and let's just say there wasn't much "power" in the walk . . . more waddle (very unattractive at 6 months pregnant)! haha.

Hang in there!!!!

I hear ya -- I'm past the point of caring too! (Doughnuts sounds good right now actually :) ) You are looking great Case! Hang in there! I'm glad to see the post above about the BOB, I was a little nervous spending so much on mine but hear great things about them! Only a couple more weeks and Avery & Eli will be cruising in those BOBs!
