Maternity Photo Shoot - Also any tips for naturally inducing labor?!

Still waiting for my little guy to make his debut!

I was assuming I would go late, but according to my last ultrasound on Monday he is already 8lb 10oz!  So the sooner he comes, the better!  I'm now 39 weeks 2 days, so it really could be any time, I'm kinda hoping for tomorrow because the 13th has always been my lucky number!  But I don't feel like it's going to happen that soon.  I'll meet with the doctors again on Monday, but until then I don't know what the plan is.

Last Saturday I had my mom and hubby take some maternity photos to document my big belly!  They did an awesome job with the photos, so I wanted to share a few.




Also, I wanted to ask any moms out there if they did anything to naturally induce labor that worked for you?

Any tips would be much appreciated!

Wish me lucky and I'll keep you posted!

XOXO

Gorgeous pictures!! If it makes you feel any better I had a sonogram at 40 weeks 2 days that said Miller was 8lbs 14oz which is why I ended up with a c-section and he ended up only being 7lbs 13oz- so they were off by a whole pound! Apparently those sonos are't that accurate this late in the game b/c they're running out of room.

DAH!!!! they are so beautiful!!!! i am dying over your silhouette picture and sun hat. SO CUTE!!!! you look great. im so happy for you! minus the fact that i totally know how you are feeling about labor starting... holy heck this is a hard time!
ive been having sexy time, bouncing on a yoga ball, walking and eating lots of pineapple! it got me dilated from 1-2cm in a days time! some people eat eggplant parm, spicy foods or take evening primrose oil.
cant wait for your announcement!!

Love the silouette pic!!! Very pretty! I would ask your doctor to strip you membranes at Monday's appt. My water broke 2 hours after I had it done with my son. He was born the next morning. And it didn't hurt at all...

How exciting - wishing you well from California! I'm a random follower who found you searching for weekly pregnancy pic inspiration.

Would you share where that dress is from??? Love it and looking for something to wear to my baby shower in August.

Gorgeous photos - wow!! You look so beautiful!
I hope your little (not so little) guy comes soon! Prayers for a smooth delivery!
As for inducing labor, drink Red Raspberry Leaf Tea. You can have a few cups a day. Try Evening Primrose capsules. You can do 2 by mouth (1,000 mg each), and 2 vaginally (1, 000 mg each). Take the latter ones at night. Have lots of sexy time! :-)
Good luck!!

These are amazing!!! No tips from me, I'm not there yet but I'm interested to hear if anything works!

Ally said...

Walking and sex are my only suggestions. Hope your appointment tomorrow goes well. You look awesome btw!

Those turned out great!

Katie said...

The pictures are beautiful!! And 8lb 10oz?? Wow... Hope he shows up soon for you! :)

Seagull said...

Beautiful photos! Just keep in mind u/s are often off with weight so your baby might not be that big. Stay strong and keep cooking. the baby will come when he's ready :)

Kristin said...

I hope he is here by now!! You looked amazing in those photos!

Mrs. Match said...

You look gorgeous!! I hope he arrived safely by now. If not, walk, walk walk, and sex sex sex. Lol! Should do the trick, though like most people say, babies come on their schedule, not yours. Gets you ready for how they also eat and sleep on their schedule once they're here! ;-)

Are these pictures yours? If so I found someone online who has added their watermark to them and is using them for advertisement. Something's felt off about it so I ran an image search and it brought me to your page here.
