continuing the countdown

Okay, I suppose the belly photos actually count up, showing the growth as the weeks passed. Counting down to the end of being pregnant, I have about 12 days left (11 when most of my readers see this).

:: About my appointment this week ::
My midwife said my cervix was soft (that's good), 25% effaced, and a fingertip dilated, meaning less than 1 cm. The baby is head-down, with the head slightly to my left. On Sunday I started taking these daily: evening primrose oil (to soften my cervix) and red raspberry leaf tea (to strengthen and prepare my uterus).

31 weeks pregnant:

32 weeks:

33 weeks:

34 weeks:

35.5 weeks / exactly 1 month before due date:

38 weeks (and 2 days):


  1. fun pictures- it's fun to see that belly grow!

  2. it is fun to see the baby belly grow too; I really hope that all is in you guys' favor, so that Drew can be there when the baby is born!!! :)

  3. Way to go on taking pictures regularly. I ended up just taking mine pretty randomly. Based on whether I felt cute that day or not was when I decided to take a pic.

  4. I'm amazed at how much your belly grew between 34 weeks and 35.5! It's just so cool how it grows so much there at the end...

  5. I just can't wait to see the little one!


Leave some love!
