27 weeks

It has been 7 weeks since I last posted a pic of my baby bump. Oy, lots of growing in these last 7 weeks... all over. (ahem!)

Uh, yes, I did go outside to get a pic taken, on our way to church....which I do have permission from my OB to attend, for now, as long as I stay reclining. Hubby takes our outdoor chaise for me to recline on at the back of the auditorium. I feel a bit like Cleopatra and get a fair amount of jealousy ribbing for my "lounging" at church.

Another week "gained" for our little guy. Our countdown chart says 77 days to go. We've come a ways since our 100 days began!

One week further along. Yea! We're praying that you make it all the way to 38 weeks. ~Gail

You look wonderful and baby is growing. Praise the Lord that you were able to keep that little one in another week. Still praying for you.

Praise the Lord! He is so good! You look great! How fun to be "lounging" at church. That is true family time. :-)

Is it a boy?! I don't think I'd heard that yet!

I remember one pregnancy I was nearly-due and at a late-night type church meeting. Someone hauled a rocking chair from the nursery and set it in the back for me, came and got me from the pew I was happily in with my family, and brought me back to it. I was mortified. I did NOT want special attention, and for serveral weeks afterward she would come to me and offer to bring out the rocker.

Now, I understand she was just being kind, but it does feel odd to be singled out like that.

I'm afraid with this pregnancy, if someone set up a chaise lounge for me during church, I am fairly sure I would fall asleep within minutes. Have you snored yet??

The Other Karen...

I think you look lovely.

You look great Jerri! Glad you can join the family at church...the chaise lounge is a good idea.
Will be praying for you as the countdown continues.

Wow! I haven't been to your blog in a long time! I missed you are pregnant. congratulations!
My last pregnancy was very difficult, too. With funneling and my water broke and resealed at 30 weeks. Rough times, but so worth it!

I'll be lifting you up in prayers for a miraculous recovery so that you can hopefully soon get out of that bed and do the things you would like to do.

Karen, I think you are on to something... and no, we haven't announced, though it isn't a secret...

The girls are a bit disappointed... they are figuring that the girls will now never catch up to the boys in the family ratio.....

8 boys, 5 girls. EIGHT boys. We know a few other families with 7 boys (known as the Seven Sons club - lol!) but not any other 8's.

It has been 8 years since we had a baby boy in the house... and that was our "bonus boy", who came with a sister...our twins.

Think anyone will find this now obscure little post hidden in this comment section? Probably not.
