Posts that I Didn’t Read


This week got away from me.

I think I read like one thing all week and it was probably just a joke that someone posted on facebook.

So I have nothing to BOOM about today.

I DID have my second to the last OB visit yesterday.

I am measuring at 40 weeks (I am really 37.5 weeks), but that is what happened with Eddie too.

Everything else looks good.

I am going on record as guessing Charlie’s birth weight to be 8 lbs, 10 oz.since he will be born at 39 weeks, but is measuring big.

(Eddie was 9lbs, 8 oz and born on his due date, by the way)

Do you have a guess?


Other places to find my writing from this week:

I reviewed the book The Book Thief on Katie’s Bookcase.

I have a post about Eating Real Food on Borderless News and Views today.


About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. I love that you have a Boom! without posts, because it shows you take your Boom!s seriously.

    I will go 8 lbs, 9 oz just for fun 🙂 (and because it was how much Abbey weighed.)

  2. I will say 9 lbs 4 oz. I measured like that with both of my boys. oldest was born 5 days after due ate and was 8 lbs and 7 ozs i think. my middle was born one day before due date and he was 9 lbs 5 oz i believe. I can’t remember ozs for sure.

  3. I’m going to guess another 9lb. 8 oz.’er but only because that is what my first weighed born on his due date also, and my second weighed the same when induced at 39 weeks! Good luck!

  4. Second to last visit! Squeeeeeee! I think 9lbs 2oz. I love the chubba bubba babies so much!

  5. Boom is right! You have big babies, mama. It won’t be long now…. 🙂
