36 (and a half) weeks / 9 months pregnant

Welcome Friday!

This week baby girl is roughly 6 lb and 18″-19″ long. Most of her systems are mature and are ready for birth. However, the digestive system won’t be until after she’s here.

I recently had an ultrasound to make sure that everything was still on track, given that I have Gestational Diabetes. Thankfully everything looks great!

That said, my doctor is recommending that I be induced at 39 weeks. Although Remy and Wilder came naturally, their births were both early and quick. Remy was born in my 38th week after 6 hours of labour, and Wilder in my 39th after only 1 hour. Because we live an hour away from the hospital, I am actually relieved that I will most likely have an induction. I realize that it will be more painful, but at least we can plan for family to help us (watching the children and animals) and not have to give birth at home unassisted. So, instead of 3.5 weeks until she is here, it will hopefully only be 2.5 weeks!

Here is my previous 36 week update.

happy halloween

It’s Halloween, all!! Woo hoo!! We were SO excited for it this year because our little girl has been obsessed with all things Halloween.

We took Remy to her first Halloween store (and ours for that matter) at the beginning of October, and let her pick out whatever costume she wanted. She chose a witch. She wore that costume everyday for a month, complete with a dress, hat, bucket, and broom. She even wore it to church! All of the elderly women thought it was a princess dress, so we got away with it. I ended up buying her a separate costume in order to have a fresh one for Halloween night. She chose a ghost.

We have since visited many spooky stores and have gone to a few Halloween-related events. I’m really feeling my heavily pregnant state this year, so I’m kind of glad that today is finally the big day. Now we just need to get her as excited for Christmas. Christmas has ghosts too, right? ;-)))

Here is a look back at this holiday season during previous years: 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2013.

Happy Halloween, everyone! Have the best time today and tonight!
