Keeping Our Sanity During Baby's First Year

Week 36: Back to Posting (Finally)

We are 36 weeks and entering our last month! Eliza is approximately 18.75 inches and the size of a crenshaw melon (whatever that is). She is 5.75 lbs which is actually pretty close to what I was when I was born. We are 1 week away from being considered “full term”  but from what I’ve read it is best to cook your baby until 40 weeks so I am hoping Eliza stays snug inside for a few more weeks.

I know it has been a long time since I’ve posted anything and I’ve fallen woefully behind on posting baby bump pictures. It was a busy month for us trying to get ready for her arrival but I feel like we have finally gotten everything we need.

Here I am at 34 weeks:

  1. You are looking sooo great! I love your pictures, and how happy you look. I will admit as a former pregnant lady that I am jealous of your figure – at this stage I was more “LUMP” than “BUMP”!
