Today is our Due Date.

40 Weeks today! Wow. I really thought we'd have the baby by now. Or at least be in the process of having her. Oh well. All in God's time!

I thought I'd start with a cute pic of Snickers. He loves his monthly stickers.

And here I am. 40 weeks preggers in all it's glory! All you skinny minis out there..don't be too jealous of this huge belly! I'm in work out clothes (again). I basically walked all day long to try and get things moving.

How Far Along: 40 Weeks!

Size of Baby: My weekly email said it's hard to really say how big the baby is at this point but most babies are around 7.5 lbs and over 20 inches long - About the size of a pumpkin! I think the email says it's hard to calculate because most people have their baby by now! We're guessing that Baby Girl will be over 8lbs but under 9lbs.

Weight Gain: 20lbs

Maternity Clothes: Shocked they still fit.

Gender: Baby Girl Clarkson!

Cravings: Red wine. And I'm not ashamed to admit it :)

Movement: Baby Girl still moves all the time but she's running out of room in there.

Sleep: Horrible. Chris and I have not been sleeping at all. The rate we're going, we'll be pros at the newborn sleep schedule.

Symptoms: Some small contractions, cramping, low back ache. All good signs that labor is coming. Yesterday, I was still at a 1 and 50% effaced. If Baby Girl is not here by Thursday, I'm going back to the doctor and will check in Thursday night to start induction.

What I Miss: Just being comfortable.
Once she arrives, I will definitely miss feeling her move all day long.

Best Moment of the Week: Knowing my mom made it to KC in time for the delivery!

What I Am Looking Forward To: Finally meeting our daughter this week! We can't wait to see who she looks like and share her precious name!

Please keep the Clarkson Fam in your prayers over the next couple of days!


  1. Hang in there! Baby Girl Clarkson will be here soon! We are excited to meet her!

  2. Wow I just teared up after reading that you will miss feeling her move around! I miss feeling Bobby moving around. I need to get pregnant again!
