Week 37


I had my ultrasound yesterday and the baby is measuring at 6 pounds 8 ounces. I had to look away for most of the ultrasound so I didn't see anything but the technician did show us all the baby's hair! I guess that is why I have been having such horrible heartburn =) The Dr. checked me and said I was now 3 centimeters dilated and almost 100 percent effaced! The Dr. thought I would be having this baby within the week and thought it would be very unlikely I would go to my due date. I'm still trying to not get my hopes up too much since I know women who have been dilated and effaced for a few weeks before going in to labor. Hopefully it will be soon! I'm so anxious to meet this baby! Paul is gone today in Pittsburgh which is 3 hours away so hopefully if I do go in to labor he can make it back ;)

See it's not that hard to look away. :) No really... it was very easy because the u/s tech was looking at the heart, spine, brain, ect. and really didn't look down there much except for the legs for measurement.

You look SO CUTE, I SWEAR I'm just as big right now. and I only have 2 1/2 lbs. of baby in me. Ha!

Can't wait to hear about your new little one... hopefully it will be perfect timing.
