37 weeks

A whole month. Really? Really. But look, I’m posting! Thank you all for your nice comments and emails. We are doing great over here, not to worry. Just busy busy trying to get ready for bebe, wrap up some work, spend some time outside… you know.

It occurred to me that some of you must not be on Instagram. How is this possible?! Or if you are and you don’t follow me, that’s probably a better way to see what’s going on regularly than my blog at the moment. Belly shots and food and pictures of Dashiell have been happening over there even when there are just crickets over here. I’m “kristinahm” if you feel like joining up.

Now about that pregnancy thing… 37.5 weeks as I write this. We’re getting pretty darn close! I can’t seem to be bothered to get dressed or put on make up anymore, which is part of the reason for the lack of photos. You’ll notice the above has neither make up nor a photo worthy outfit included, but we’re all friends here, right?

I’ve been thinking lots of things about my current state recently, but now that I’m sitting down to write, I can’t remember them. Dashiell and I had a nice afternoon on the couch watching baby’s foot move around in my belly and talking about what will happen when baby comes. He does seem to be warming to the idea… just when it seemed like things were not going in that direction. I’m giving large amounts of credit to my old Cabbage Patch baby that my mom sent in a box, wrapped in a swaddle a few weeks ago. He really does love having a baby of his own.

Had our final prenatal with our doula last night. I’m starting to feel less nervous about labor and more pumped. It’s about to be go time. Which is pretty darn exciting.

More soon, I hope!

(Mexican blouse from, well, Mexico! and OLD OLD OLD shorts from Abercrombie – the only ones that still fit.)

    look how adorable you are at 37.5 weeks! You’ve got a big ole belly and skinny everything else! Lucky girl. I was a bloated whale all over the first time and I’m hoping it goes better my second time around (when I finally get brave enough!) I look forward to hearing the news when the next one gets here!

    I’m just shocked you can be full term and wear non maternity shorts. Clearly, you don’t prescribe to the “eat everything in site and gain 60 lbs diet,” as I did. Perhaps that is why I am still trying to find the courage for #2. Love your photos on instagram…I am so addicted. Where has that app been all my life?

    It was so good to see you last weekend! You look amazing, make up or not.

    i’m with you – less nervous, more pumped!

    and three cheers for the cabbage patch doll! so cute that he’s enjoying having a baby of his own…

    You look fantastic! I was wondering how you were doing… I’m exactly 37.5 weeks as well with my second (my first (daughter) is the same age as your son- he, he) so I’m always curious what you’re up to.

    Good luck!!!!

    Yaaay!! So exciting! I’d been checking back wondering if bebe might’ve made an early appearance :) I had my second little one in Feb and even though labor was intense (duh) there’s a strange part of me that can’t wait to do it again. You’ll do great!

    Best wishes to you (I’m guessing girl!)
