Knowing that my baby girl could come any day now has me thinking about the birth of my first two children. Johnny was a little guy at only 6lbs 7oz and was born by cesarean at 37 weeks 6 days. Joley was a big girl weighing 9lbs 6 oz, born also by cesarean at 40 weeks exactly on her due date. They were very different babies in more than just their weight. I am at that stage in pregnancy when all I want is to hold my little girl. I wonder what she is going to weight, what she is going to look like… I just wonder.
Here are pictures of my babies shortly after they were born.
And both of them shortly after Joley’s birth… this was exactly a week after she was born.
I can’t wait to be able to share pics of baby Jemma!

You make really adorable babies 🙂 Can’t wait to see baby Jemma! Wishing you a smooth labor and delivery and a quick recovery!
Thank you so much!
I love baby photos!
Good luck, this is such an exciting time!!!
Awww, my dd was 9lbs 7oz when she was born. Surprised us all…lol
Mine was not a surprise. They were all freaked out about her weight for weeks. *rolls eyes*
What sweeties. I love the third picture. I know that stage of pregnancy. Got awhile to go til I am there again. I am 19 weeks right now.
Congrats to you! Almost half way. 🙂

So excited for you! I have been having baby fever bad the past few weeks and think we have decided to go for baby #3 this next year. I can’t be more excited about it, but definitely remember the final month or two of pregnancy being less than fun… I will keep you in my thoughts and can’t wait to hear your birth story.
How exciting!! Thanks for the thoughts. 🙂
ah, the anxious period. I’m still freaking out about the whole delivery process lol. Even though I’ve done a vaginal & a c-section and know them both I’m so scared this time around???? I definitely don’t want a c-section though. I’m jealous of your calm.
There really is no calm. There is exhaustion. lol
I am okay actually with the birth. It is the stuff outside of the birth that is upsetting and scaring me. My 11yo will be off school and that is enough to send me over the edge.
You will be okay. I am guessing you are going for a VBAC? I will pray for you!
