Week 33 & 34: Craziness, and Maternity Pics...

Week 34: Cantaloupe
Rylie is basically just a large lump in Christie's belly that shifts from side to side on occasion. Her movement has slowed down quite a bit, which is completely normal (I mean, you try being a pineapple or cantaloupe and move around in a belly that is supposed to be the size of your fist...see why she's cramped!)
Week 33: Pineapple

We had another visit with Naomi today (in two weeks we have our last visit with a 2 week gap and we start going every week. Week 37 is a big milestone... it means that Rylie can come at anytime after July 5th and she would be perfectly healthy (maybe a bit light, but healthy nonetheless)... This is GREAT news! Almost there... also we found out some interesting info at the doc today that leads us all to believe that Rylie will probably come a little earlier than planned. Not so early that she won't be healthy, but probably closer to the July 5th date than the July 27th date. So we are half-heartedly hoping for July 6th, because I was born on October 6th and Christie's birthday is March 6th! That would be kinda cool huh? Anyway, Christie is doing fine, she just has to take it easy for a while, not bed rest yet (and hopefully not at all) but just taking it easy.

In other news... We took Maternity pictures on Saturday! This was pretty cool and we got some unbelievable shots (I think, we didn't see them yet, but the poses are great) This is Part 1 of a 4 Part series including the Maternity session, Newborn session, 6 month session, and First Birthday session! So we will have plenty of professional photos of her, plus the millions that I will take with my new camera!

Until next week,


  1. I am full-heartedly hoping for July 21st.

  2. July 25th! If not, o'well. We are so excited for you guys! ~Dustin and Virginia
