Living La Vida Belly


I've been wanting to do some sort of belly casting-ish thing for a while now. I knew that the baby was going to come sooner than later, so after walking almost three miles in a parade yesterday, I'm really feeling like she might be coming now. Last night Ashlee was kind enough to let me get her place messy and she & Arianne sculpted like the artists they are by doing a belly imprint for me.





I have been up on & off all night and am probably up for a while now. I'm thinking that maybe baby is coming soon? I know that parade walk at least did a little something...



Belly, 38 weeks

  2. Wow...you amaze me, to have the energy to do this after walking 3 miles. I bet that casting was cold. How neat. I figured I would get a call during the night, but at least I did have a nights sleep in case I am needed today.

  3. I am SO impressed that you walked the whole three miles! I walked a mile a day up until I went into labor, but certainly not three miles... in a parade. You're amazing.
    The belly cast looks beautiful. Is this the first one you've done?

  4. Oh hon! How exciting to have a belly cast. I always thought about it and never did it. You'll be happy to have it.

    Of COURSE she's coming soon! You're due in about 10 days, right?

    :)

    Hope it's this week rather than next.

    Good luck!

  7. I felt the same way yesterday with all the digging/gardening we did. As if the 'low' feeling/pressure wasn't enough, last night I was having double the amount of contractions as normal. Lead no where though, but today's a new day! Our babies are coming!!

    I have a belly casting kit here to do as well :) Are you going to leave yours plain or paint it? :)

  15. Nice belly casting! How on earth did you have the energy for 3 miles? She must be coming soon if you have that much energy!

  16. Walking, walking, walking has always been my approach when it was time for my babies to get out! I always felt like I had worked so hard for nine plus months to create a hospitable environment and they didn't want to leave! So I had to make things a little less "comfortable."

  18. Hi! I just came across your blog and wanted to comment on how great I think it is. I also felt the need for some reason to share that I am also a Steph married to a Jeff with three little boys. So how many times did you get the "you need to try for a girl!" comment before this one? Probably not as many times as me! :)

    Great blog! (sending labor vibes your way)

    ReplyDelete
  32. You are amazing-walking the whole parade route. Whew!

    Our girls got bored, so we left before we ever saw you guys. Bummer. Can't wait to hear when your big day arrives!

  33. Love the belly imprint!! I was just stopping by to see how you're doing! It's crazy that I know so many people about to have babies any day now! Very exciting too.

    I think about you all the time!!!

  37. OH I cant wait to hear that baby Ivy is here! And that is cool with the belly cast! What a neat way to look back at being pregnant! Though I was wondering, what will you do with it now as a way to store it and keep it safe?

    ReplyDelete
  38. So excited that little Ivy will be here soon :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. So how are you feeling??? hope everything goes well! Can't wait to meet this little one!

    ReplyDelete
  40. That. Is. Precious. I think people who are having their fourth child may not think of doing something like this. The fact that you did just warms my heart...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Your belly cast is really neat. You should take a newborn picture of Ivy all curled up inside of it.

    I'll be following you on Twitter awaiting the good news.

    ReplyDelete
  42. How cool! I didn't do that but always thought it was very cool.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Yay! It came out so, so lovely!

    Now the little doll can make her appearance.

    I am sending you happy, healthy delivery vibes.
