36 weeks and counting

Claire was 36 weeks yesterday and we've decided to take a photo a week up till her due date or till Alice is born - whichever comes first :)

Claire saw the midwife this afternoon, baby's head is down, heartbeat is strong and she's not back to back which is good. I asked the midwife if she had any idea what size baby she might be and she said if she goes to term and baby continues to put on weight as expected, she could be at the top end of 8 lbs. She did say it's just her estimation but seeing as all my babies were 8lb-ers, she could well be right. Hugh was 8 1/2 pounds, Claire was 8 lbs and Emily was 8 13 1/2.  Guess we won't have to wait too long to find out :)
However, we did say in the car home that it might be a good idea to get all the 0 - 3 month clothes out and washed just to be on the safe side.
And I'll leave you with this photo, taken this evening. The weather has been quite changeable today and after some heavy rain this rainbow appeared in the sky.
