Uneventful...and Pictures

I had my regular weekly checkup (36 weeks) today which was pretty much uneventful. Avery is about 5lbs. and fluid is still at 11. Not dialated and everything else looks good. I'm physically feeling really good so that is fabulous! For those of you who are curious about what I look like at almost 9 months pregnant, wait no more!!!!


  1. SO CUTE! You still look great! I am happy everything went well at your appointment. The girls are missing Kaitlyn SO much. We are going out of town again this weekend, but want to see you guys soon!

  2. awww.. you look great! Hang in there. We are continuing to pray for you guys.

  3. You are soooo cute...all four of you! :)

  4. you are beautiful angel as always (and the other two look pretty good too!). Prayers and love to sweet Avery and just keep on "keepin' on" as they say - God is holding your hands :)

  5. Carissa you look gorgeous!! I think about you daily, knowing your "turn" is right around the corner. Keep praying, miracles happen everyday. Kaden has been carried this far by everyone lifting his name up to God. We will all do the same for Avery.

    Keep us posted, and Much Love from CA!!

  6. Hi. I saw your post on Claire's blog. I just wanted to pop in and say that there is always hope and these CDH babies are real fighters. My son was born in Aug 2007 and they didn't give us much hope. He's now almost 20 months and you'd never know he was sick when he was born. His CarePage is: JackJensen

    I'll keep you guys in my thoughts

  7. You look amazing!!!! You're so close. Stay strong, get some rest, and keep your faith.

    Much Love,
    Brooke and *Kamryn's Mommy

  8. Hi Carissa. I just wanted you to know that I am thinking of you. I remember how those last few weeks were a mixed bag of emotions for me. I was ready for mine to be here, yet terrified for him to be here all at the same time. Hang in there. We are praying for you! If you need anything, let me know! Much love and many prayers from TN

  9. Rachel Hall says...Carissa! I had no idea you were going through all of these hard times. Afterall we've always been mere acquaintances, but I have to say that my heart goes out to you and your family. It sounds like you all have been so strong all this time and have been nothing but loving towards eachother. I especially loved the quote about God not putting you on a mountaintop so that you could follow HIS plan! You are most definitely an inspiration to so many people out there going through tough times. I wish you all the best and I'll be following your blog to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

    Did I mention that you are an amazingly beautiful prego!? My heart goes out to you all! Love you!

  10. Coming over from Bethany's blog to visit you...

    I'm keeping you & sweet Avery in my prayers.
