I know we haven't updated in a while, but this post should make up for it! Last year at the St. Joe Baby Fair we won a free Maternity Photo Session with Carlisle Photography. We went for our shoot on Derby Day and, after what seemed like an interminable wait, Michelle has posted the proofs on her site. We would like to share them with you all. You can look at our proof gallery by going to http://carlislephotography.smugmug.com/Proofs Click on the Downey Maternity icon. Our password is porkchop. There are 62 pictures for you to peruse. Doesn't that make up for the lack of posting? :)
In other news, we got a great report at our last appointment with our midwife. The stubborn placenta has finally moved up and completely out of the way! It is no longer even considered low-lying. That was such a relief to hear! Even though we would have been able to proceed with a vaginal birth before, it is nice to know that the possible risks from a low-lying placenta don't even have to be considered now. Melissa also checked Cindy at the appt and she is 1cm dilated and 50% effaced - all of which is right on target.
Today marks week 36 of the pregnancy. The baby could come at any time now, and we are a little anxious about preparing the house and ourselves. Unfortunately, we are still waiting on our dresser and glider to come in. We also still have yet to pack a bag for the hospital, make a belly cast to remember how beautiful Cindy looks, settle on a boy's name, finish painting the basement, visit our friend Stephanie who just had a beautiful baby boy, visit Nicole who might be the person caring for our baby once Cindy has to return to work.... Needless to say, there's still a lot to do! However, we'll be happy and excited whenever Meatloaf decides to make his/her grand debut!
