39 Weeks, No Baby

Yep, still waiting!

Wednesday was my last doctor appointment.  We had a growth scan (baby is estimated at 6 lbs 14 oz, so with the margin of error, 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 lbs), and an office visit.  We'd planned to see a specific doctor and have her strip my membranes, but she'd been called out of the office, so that part of the appointment didn't happen.  Otherwise the appointment was good. Weight gain and blood pressure are still right where they should be, and Bob is a wiggly baby.  We go back to the dr again on Tuesday if baby doesn't come before then.

Physically I feel great, just a bit disappointed that this whole baby thing isn't happening on my time frame, but really, when does it ever work that way....

My mom was off from work on Thursday so Claire and I met her for lunch and some shopping (walking, really).  We had a great day, went home tired, but no baby.  We did more of the same yesterday, lunch with mom and a friend, more walking/shopping and still no baby.  We've spent so much time in the car the last few days that Claire is refusing to get in the car seat today, and I don't blame her.  So we are sticking close to home, and will venture out to the zoo (more walking!) tomorrow.

In Claire news, she loves being at the farm.  All she has to do is get her hat, sign outside and there is always someone around to put her in the Gator and go for a drive through the cows.  Before we left home she discovered that she could almost climb in one kitchen cabinet.  Darren cleaned it out for her so that they could play right!

And one last belly shot at 38 1/2 weeks.


  1. Guess the baby is going full term! :) You look great and so does little miss Claire!

  2. I have a cleaned out cabinet just like that for Jesenia. :) Can't wait to see the new little one. Hope you don't have to wait too much longer.

  3. Love the pix of Claire! Bummer that the baby has not come yet! The zoo should do the trick! Looks like nice weather in CO! Perfect days for a baby! Thinking of ya! Smiles

  4. You look great Melissa and so happy that you are feeling well. (9) more weeks for my daughter.

  5. Wow -- I thought for sure that the baby would have come by now but it is best to let things progress on their own speed. You look fantastic! We can't wait to hear about the new addition!

  6. Sooooo close... hope you have a wonderful birth!

  7. I hear that cleaning things high up that requires you to raise your arms above your head can induce labor. It worked for my sister-in-law. Couldn't hurt to try.
    Love the in the cabinet picture. Clair looks so much like a big girl. Hang in there.

  8. What a cutie!
