We Are Almost There!

Here we are!  Just about 37 weeks and all seems to be going well.  Im having contractions about every 5-6-7 minutes but nothing has changed cervix wise so the midwife is not worried.  This baby will come when ready and at this point that could be any day.
I'm a mixture of excited and nervous, but in general I just feel good and patient and BIG.  Im sorry I dont have a recent photo but I will work on it.  But Imagine normal sized me with a basketball under my shirt.  Of course a bigger behind and some chunk in my arms...unescapable in pregnancy.
This weekend a bunch of friends are coming over to the garden site to plant out all the flowers.  I am very happy about this since I cannot even bend down to tie my shoes.  I will be taking pictures.  I am so lucky to have such a wonderful group of friends to help me do this.
So stay tuned for photos and big news...its happening!
I also wanted to wish all the lovely mothers and mothers to be a belated Happy Mother's Day...I wasn't so much up for celebrating yesterday but you all were on my mind.  I feel so grateful to be joining the ranks of the wise and laboured in our world.  And Momma...thanks for helping through!  I love you.


  1. What a wonderful time I had last night with you and Rob. Thanks again for the Mother's Day outing. Our grandbaby will be here soon and I am ALWAYS available to babysit, as if you didn't know. You are going to be a wonderful mother Carissa!

  2. Yahooo!!!!! Oh I am so excited for you! I cannot wait to hear the happy news! Prop your feet up and enjoy your wonderful friends acring for you. Wish I lived closer to come and help out! I thought about your sweet Momma yesterday too, wish I was close enough to hug you.
    Love yah,
