You look like you're about to ....

 
 POP! This is the comment I get from everyone just about everyday. Truly, I can't go into one store without someone saying it. I did get my 1st "are you having twins?" last week. Really people who says that? Even if you think it why would you tell a complete stranger that? It's not to help their self esteem.  In returned I said no I already had twins. The best is telling people this is my 4th child they say wow then you look great for your 4th and I just let them believe I have birthed 4 separate children, but if I'm in the mood I throw them off and say no this is only my second pregnancy and walk away leaving them hanging. People are just too funny, for me I just can't imagine even asking a pregnant lady any questions or making comments. To each their own I guess:)
He's saying Weeeee on our front porch swing 
Look how grown up he looks ... how time is just flying by.
 He turned 21 months this week 
 It's sad to say he won't be the baby anymore 


For an update, I went to the doctor today I'm 38 1/2 weeks pregnant and really do feel like I'm going to POP..haha the people weren't lying. I'm 3cm dilated and really they can't tell me much more than that...I do feel some fun pressure going on.  I was induced with the twins at almost 38 weeks past full term which is unheard of... I really had a text book pregnancy with them no problems at all. This time around I definitely feel a little older as I have a few more aches and pains but for the most part I feel pretty good. Crazy to think I only gained about 8 more pounds with the twins another thing I would like to blame on my age. So, really the guessing game begins as we really don't have any idea when this baby will enter into this world. For those of you that don't know my due date is July 4th but sad to say she won't be coming that date as we have a scheduled induction for Friday July 1st. There was nothing available after my due date for the hospital because of the fun holiday and me waiting too long to schedule. Which one nurse said it will be nice to not have it on the actually holiday because everyone will be out of town too busy with their families for future birthdays:) Who knows but I do know I won't be going any later than July 1st which is only 9 days from now!! Crazy 
Now that you know the facts what are your guesses? 
A few friends have put their guesses in:
Courtney- June 29th 10am natural 21 inches 8lbs 3oz 
Rebecca - June 25 11pm natural 8lbs 21" 
Michelle- June 28th 4pm natural 7lbs 6 oz 19.5 
I said even before knowing the induction date ..... 
Heidi- July 1st 4pm induced 8lbs 5oz. 20" 
So what are your guesses? If you guess right there might be a surprise for you :))) 
Yes there might be one really cool give away just for you the lucky person that guesses the birthday, time, natural or induced, weight and length. My first official giveaway to celebrate our sweet sunshine. So don't be shy and let this be fun, post in comments what you think .. 
It will be something I can add to her baby book. 

This could be our last picture together before Jonas becomes a big brother!

Hi Heidi,
My guess in June 27th at 3:00 pm, 7lbs, 12 ounces and 20 inches. Natural. I can't believe anyone thinks your having twins. You look awesome. Get REST while you can.

You look great! There really is no happy medium... pregnant women either look huge or not big enough... I was one who wasn't big enough... and yet my baby managed to be a healthy 8lbs 2oz. ;] Anyways, you look fabulous for your 4th child/2nd pregnancy ;]

You look so amazing. Your arms are so skinny, mine inflate like balloons when I am pregnant (along with everything else it seems). My prediction is June 29th. Natural. 7 lbs. 8 oz. 19 1/2 in.
