I made it.

I’m full term.

There’s a human in me that could come out tomorrow and become president in 35 years.

This feels like a dream. I keep waiting to wake up.

the day I found out I was pregnant vs. the day I hit full term.

On the left, the day I found out about mozzi, about 4 weeks. On the right, today. 37 weeks.

I guess now’s the time we all start guessing when I’m going into labor and just how big this kid is going to be.

Addie came on her due date, I went into labor around 9 am, she was born shortly after 4 pm. She weighed 6 lbs. 14 oz. and was 19.5″ long.

Phew. This is real.

Thank you for sticking by me.



  1. There’s going to be a BABY in your house!

  2. Yup. That belly is definitely out farther than the boobs. For a while.

    And may I say, young lady, you look MARVELOUS.

  3. So freaking happy for you. So. Sending you tons of love.

  4. Wheeee!!!!! So excited for you!!!

  5. You’re wearing the same jeans. I hate you. I love you. Hope to see you and your girls soon, sweet momma.

  6. “I made it.”

    YEAH, YOU DID!!!!

  7. You did indeed make it! And you look adorable. I hope to say the same in another 20 weeks. 🙂

  8. Addie came ON her due date? How fun! And what a short labor! I hope that’s the case with Mozzi, well at least the short labor part. I’m guessing she’ll be born 6 days before her due date and be 7 lbs 4 oz and 20 inches.

  9. Oh the excitement….

    Ok here’s my guess:

    10 am
    7# 2oz

  10. The same jeans? Are you kidding? Where are the terribly ugly maternity pants? Why do these things always evolve after I’m through with that stage of my life.

    Prayers are already in place for Mozzi’s grand entrance. May the curly, gray mullet doctor make it a party!

  11. Yay! So happy for you! You rock that belly girl! My guess is: April 14, 8:14pm, 7#7oz 20in. My friend just found out she is expecting, is 4 weeks and scared to death..first much wanted baby. Babies for everyone! Yay!


    I guess..

    April 25th.
    7 pounds 11 ounces.
    20 inches long.

  13. A. I am so happy for you. From what I can tell on the internet you seem like an amazing mother. Mozzi is so lucky already.

    B. How awesome is it that you can still fit into those same jeans? Win.

  14. At the risk of your hate:

    April 13, 12.02am
    7lbs 6oz

  15. September 25th.

    30 lbs, 2 oz.
