36 Week Bumpdate!

36 Weeks!!

The stickers look much cuter on her little outfits than on mine

Beanette is due in exactly 4 weeks, and I can’t believe how fast the past nine months have come and gone!

Beanette is Bump-tastic!!


Starting today we visit our doctor weekly.  Apparently they like seeing us so much they have decided they can’t go more than 7 days without a visit from us… I’m pretty sure it’s due to our dashing good looks and Denny’s charm. 

The visit today went great!  We got to see Beanette on the big screen and she was looking extra cute.  Her hand was in front of her face so we didn’t get any great photos, but we’ll more than make up for that once she arrives.

Here are the other Beanette updates:

  • She is currently weighing about 6 lbs and 3 ounces (Beanette has requested that I stop announcing her weight once she turns 3 so enjoy these updates while they last)
  • She is expected to weigh about 7 1/2 – 8 lbs at birth (Lexi is thrilled to maintain her status of Tiniest McGee – at her last vet appointment  she was at 6 lbs, 13 oz).  I’m thrilled she might actually fit into newborn clothes!  I have had recurring fears of trying to deliver a 14 lb baby.
  • She is head down currently, but she hasn’t started any other steps to her arrival just yet
  • The Dr. said we have at least 3 weeks before we meet her, likely more

We are just about ready too… 

Laundry, check! 

Nursery, check! 

Carseat installed, check! 

Patience and excitement, check and check!! 




A Day in the Life of my Daughter-to-be!

Despite having never met my daughter, (aka Beanette) I’ve become very familiar with her daily schedule.  Fellow Moms, I imagine that you can totally relate to the 100+ bathroom trips per day.   It’s pretty fun to have her bouncing around inside your belly.

Someday I’ll have to confirm this with her when she arrives but here are my thoughts on her daily activities.  If I am missing anything feel free to let me know! 


5:30 AM 

Beanette wake up call because her big sister Lexi (our cat) is dancing on my head for her morning Fancy Feast buffet.  Beanette can’t wait to meet her sister, kicks me in excitement and sends me to the bathroom.

6:00 AM

I‘m pretty sure she is back to bed by this time, she apparently takes after us and likes to sleep late.

8:30 AM

Wide awake and ready for another Bring your Daughter to Work Day.  She grows brain cells (250 per minute) while I try to make my way through morning e-mails.  I’m not sure where she gets her ambition.

11:00 AM

Beanette kick boxing lessons.  It appears that she is going to have a really strong core by the time she is born.  I make trips #11-25 to the ladies room.

1:00 PM

More napping.   She seems to do this during much of the afternoon gearing up for a fun evening of activities

7:00 PM

Beanette playtime!!  I’m quite certain that this is how my bladder looks to her:

I can’t blame her for being excited.  I would want to bounce too!

10:00 PM

She’s been jumping and kicking for a few hours now and finally seems to be tuckered out! 


Sweet Dreams Beanette, can’t wait until we really get to tuck you in bed!
