Both Mommies look very happy. I guess Anna could go another week. Don't they generally induce around 42 weeks if labor hasn't started? I wonder if Stevie would allow one or both to be born on a Sunday? :shock:

They do both look happy. It's actually good NR-Anna has had Melanie around to go through pregnancy with. I can't imagine Teri is too forthcoming about her own pregnancies. Plus she was so stoned on Pepsi, she probably doesn't even remember.

Er, Sarah, 37 weeks is not full-term...

No, it is considered a healthy date for delivery (I believe anything after 36 weeks the risks drop significantly due to lung development -- low birth weight is still an issue at that point, though). Given Melanie's other prenancies with delivering really early (can't remember how early they were), they are probably just all relieved she's made it this far and is on no bed rest.

AFAIK, 37 weeks is when the fetus is considered at full term. It's also the cut off for when you can have a home birth. Labors that begin before 37 weeks must go to the hospital.

The range of "normal" is between 37 and 42 weeks. Most midwives will insist on an induction at 42 weeks, but some whackadoo woo-woo midwives who don't understand risk/benefit assessment are willing to wait even after 42 weeks.

Yep, the due date is calculated 40 weeks from your first missed period, but you're considered "full term" at 37 weeks and beyond.

Despite my feelings about the Maxwells, I'm hoping for smooth, safe deliveries and healthy kiddos for both women. Particularly Melanie; she's had such a rough go of it.

I wonder if NR-Anna is planning a home birth? They've never said boo on the blog about it. But if Stevie is raising his kids to be ultra fundie, Christopher should have insisted this be a home birth. Obviously Melanie has had high-risk pregnancies, so she dodged the homebirth bullet there. Not that there's anything wrong with homebirth (I would have done it the 2nd time around had my husband been on board with it, but he was afraid of problems and as it turned out, it was good to be at the hospital for us).

Can I say that Anna's skirt is almost stylish with that flair at the bottom? If she sewed the shirt she's wearing, she really is a good seamstress and I can't wait to see the outfits she has sewn for the baby.

Me, too. I just remember with my first birth, I read everything I could get my hands on and had every ounce of knowledge I felt I could have, and then my son was born so quickly, all I could do was close my eyes tight (too much visual stimulation was freaking me out). So, they never really go as you expect. I just hope NR-Anna's delivery is just as she wants it to be and no one else is making decisions for her.

And certainly Melanie has this gig down to a science. So hopefully she's given Anna (AND Christopher) some good advice.

I like her skirt, too. She does seem to be a good seamstress. And at least it's not a frumper. I think she'll find nursing in a frumper to be rather complicated, so if she's planning to nurse, she'd better have spent the last few months sewing up a storm!

I remember Steve said something like "They got to the hospital (not their first choice) at blah blah o'clock", I think with Bethany's birth. So, I think they prefer the homebirth route.

I vaguely remember that comment, too, but I think it was because they were delivering at a different hospital than the one that handled Suzannah's birth and Abigail's birth. I think because she didn't have such a high-risk pregnancy with Bethany they for some reason went to a less specialized hospital? I could be wrong. But it could have been a financial decision, too, because they are on that nutjob Samaritan Health plan so maybe the hospital they went to for Bethany was cheaper but the care level or the facility was just not their "first choice" for comfort reasons.

Inductions/scheduled C-sections aren't recommended before 39 weeks unless there's a reason. But if a baby is born at 37 weeks it counts as full-term.

I have to jump in on the 37 weeks full term bandwagon. I only once made it full term during pregnancy (39 weeks) and was even told 22 years ago that anything over 36 weeks was full term as you now have completed a full 9 months. Unless they changed how they count things (they have from my first to my last, months to weeks) then both mommies to be are full term and can safely have the babies at any time barring any unknown problems.

I agree that it's cute, but I think that the flair is a different fabric than the skirt itself. It looks to me like a manufactured skirt to which she added the flair for length. Lol, technically speaking this type of ruffle is called a "flounce," which is what some fundies are famous for!

She will probably have the nursing frumper with the side 'access' folds.

Seeing that she and Christopher seem so happy together, it's nice to think of them home during the day (away from Steve) with Anna happily sewing away. I hope she still gets a chance to make her soaps, even if in small batches.

From the blog;

"Melanie and Anna Marie have loved their little ones since the day they found out they were carrying them."

Yes, we get it. Fully human from the moment of conception, a heritage of the Lord, each one a blessing, blah, blah, blah.

Though they wouldn't have known they were carrying their "little ones" from the moment of conception. So does that mean they didn't love their little blessings from the moment they were conceived (which they claim to believe is the moment they're a real live baybee)? More likely, they say they believe the moment sperm meets egg = baybee, but their feelings say something else.

I did not read the last blog post. Wow, the wide stance seems to be a fundy trend.

Cliches don't exist for them. If it was cute when one person did it, it will be cute into perpetuity for the rest of the infinite existence of the universe.

Well, and how un-Maxwell and defrauding is that whole "I can show off my baby bump, but I can't wear pants or call attention to any of my other curves at any other time other than when I'm pregnant"? That just seems so weird to me. Shouldn't those ladies be hiding their shape in big tent-dresses like they always do?

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
