Less than 19 days to go...talking back

My baby is now considered full term, even though your due date is still three weeks away. If you go into labor now, his lungs will likely be mature enough to fully adjust to life outside the womb. He weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (like a stalk of Swiss chard). Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long.
The above is from "baby news" My baby is only 4lbs 11oz right now.

It's funny to read "My baby" as I always call Carson "my baby". Well, it was determined a few months ago that I will deliever via c-section. Wow! I have read some pretty 'painful' things about c-sections. However, the Lord has brought me this far he will see me through. Amen!!

phew, within the last two weeks Carson has really started talking back. I am not sure which is worse a teenager with drama or a 4 year old talking back...

Praying all goes well for you. After two non-c-sections, that well, didn't leave me in good shape, I can tell you while a c-section is hard, it can be equally as difficult the other way.

Are you going to tell us when you are having this baby?? So exciting!!

Isn't 4 great!?!? Reese has his moments talking back too.....and I have an almost teenager. Good times!! :)

So excited for you! Members of my family have had c-sections and they haven't really complained any more than I did doing it the other way. :) In fact, my mom always said it was the way to go. :) By the way, I have a very mouthy 4 year old...I don't remember four being this hard. I am exhausted all of the time!

how exciting! sleep now. We also have went thru a bit of a phase of attitude, I'm not loving it but its getting better so hopefully soon it will pass. Remeber the baby can wait, do things for Carson first and and never put anyof it on the baby. I haven't had any jealousy problems but Iknow there can be, and it doesn't help when they alwys have to wait because of them baby, sometimes is fine but all the time is not.
