New update on "BIG" Katelynn...

So based on my ticker on my blog, yesterday I was 30 weeks 5 days and Katelynn SHOULD weigh a little over 3 pounds.

I had my OB appt yesterday and we did another sono to check rate of growth since she was measuring 2 weeks bigger last time. Well, now our little over achiever is measuring 33 weeks and 6 days and almost 5 pounds. Now, that is 3 WEEKS bigger than what she is supposed to be. What is up with me having Ginormous (a made up word I love to use)babies! I haven't gained that much with any of them to cause this. Tyler was 9 pounds and I gained like 21 pounds and Haylee was 8.3 and being so sick most of the time I only gained 6 pounds. So far with Katelynn I have gained like 8 pounds. The tentative plan is to probably induce me at 38 weeks which is only 7 weeks away..YIKES! I so had it in my head that all of my babies would come at my due date or later, never imagined her to be early. I have to get busy...obviously not that much to do for another little girl but I have to get Tyler a booster seat so I can move Haylee over to his car seat and have the carrier for Katelynn. Sounds like musical chairs doesn't it. We need to paint Katelynn's letters to hang in the girls room. I need to get a double stroller and a dresser for more girl clothes. Oh....and just a minor detail, a bigger car to fit the baby in!

Please be praying for me as I get closer to the end. I am having so many braxton hicks contractions and not able to rest at all with a very mobile 9 month old. This past week has been the hardest. Lot's and lots of pain/pressure and also just being emotional too with all the changes coming and financial problems. I know Katleynn was God's intention and He will provide but it is so hard to see that right now. I am hoping that Haylee will learn to walk before the baby comes. I don't know how I will be able to carry both of them. I guess I need to get a sling to put Katelynn in so I can carry Haylee. Oh, too much to think about. I just have to trust in God. Prayer's please!

Ok. Take a deep breath and breath out. Again....and Again. It will work out. It always has. God will provide for you and those blessing he has bestoled on you. Is there anything I can help you with? Is there anything you need? Just ask, we may have things that you need that we don't need anymore. Please don't be shy or feel like you will be burdening us in any way. Pick up the phone and call or just email me. We will have food for you on either Sunday night, Monday night or sometime Tuesday. Would Sunday work for you? What time? We will be doing this every month for you for as long as we can. Don't be in a rush for Haylee to walk. You will be surprised on how much you can do with a little one and a newborn. And Tyler is big enough he can carry her a little ways in the house. My boys love to help with Prince "S". They love carring him out of places and into other rooms. They do a wonderful job. Again, let us know what you need......

He knows your every worry and will take care of you. I love ya girl and will be praying diligently for you and your growing family.

Oh, girl. I can't imagine what you're going through. Trust in God, and it will all work out. If I had wheels right now, I could come help you if you needed, but for now I'll just have to pray. That's the most important part anyway, right?! Don't be afraid to vent my way. Love you much!

YES! I WILL pray diligently too. Father, please provide the peace Robin and Ryan need right now. Please also work out all the details, including the worries of difficult labor and a good car situation. Father, we commit it all into your SO FAITHFUL and BIG hands. Please also, give Robin's body health, rest and comfort in these last weeks. Thank you Lord!

Draw near to Him, girl, and "Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you." 1 Peter 5:7 NLT Love you girl!

Just wanted you to know I'll be praying for you and I'm always here if you need to talk, vent or whatever! You know that I understand and will shortly be in your shoes! The good news is the things we worry about the most, most often end up taking care of themselves in a suprisingly easy way! You are a wonderful mom!

According to the sonos that I had, I was supposed to have a big baby, and always measured big. Jocilyn was 5lbs and 15.8 oz. They rounded up to 6 lbs. Granted, she was born 2 weeks early, but even had I gone to 40 weeks she wouldn't have been as big as they said. Also, my doctor told us that they sent a woman who was measuring HUGE, like 12 lbs, to emergency c section and the baby actually came out only 7lbs something. You never know....

Hang in there girl! I know it can be overwhelming and so much to think about and do before she gets here. BUT just remember does all of it really matter, a car to fit all of them yes but the rest can wait if need be. Dont stress it will all come together!

I will be praying for you, Ryan and the kiddos.
