9 Months!

Oh.My.Word! Nine Months! 36 weeks! What?? Three weeks from tomorrow, our family of four will be a family of five! I'm still in shock and full of emotions.  As excited as I am for our family to begin this new chapter, I am terrified.  Three is going to be different.  No more just Max and Claire - my comfort--what I know.  I'm scared of how they are going to react, what the first few weeks will look like as we learn a new Fredrick routine
These past few weeks have been super hard with Max and Claire - mainly because our house is on the market and I feel like I am on top of them all the time about been clean, cleaning up their toys, not messing up their beds.... list goes on -- but what I want and need to be doing is soaking up every single minute I can with them.  Doing fun things.  Just the three of us.

36 weeks
Weight gain:  37 lbs
Symptoms:  a few contractions, spider and varicose veins :(
What I look forward to: agreeing on a name!

Had an appointment last tuesday.  I was sure she was going to say I had dilated some, but Nope! Everything is closed up!  I go again this Tuesday and will try to update, at least if something changes.

This Saturday, our good friends threw a couples cookout shower for us.  It was just perfect.  The hostesses went out of their way to make everything look awesome.  Delicious food, unique decorations and fabulous friendships!

Hard to see, but says Baby Fredrick and arrival date

With the hostesses
I wish I had a big group pic, but lucky I have the few I took with my phone.

My in-laws also came in town this weekend and were supposed to come to the shower, but ended up watching the kids.  Claire came down with a stomach bug :( .  She still doesn't feel well, but hasn't thrown up since the one time early Saturday morning.  Luckily she had some breaks where she felt better and was able to ride bikes and enjoy the sunshine!

watching her soccer game, wishing she was playing... but happy to be with Grandpa and Grandma!


  1. So so close! I know what you mean about wanting to enjoy these last few weeks with Max and Claire, but girl I don't know how you are doing it all! I'd be going crazy with my house on the market and within days of meeting a new baby, so I'd say if you are making it through each day, it's a success! :) The shower looks like it was a great time!

  2. Oh my goodness! So exciting! I can't wait to read about all your new and exciting adjustments soon!
