Oh, hey. I’m 37 weeks and 3 days.
The bug is 6 lb 5 oz…he is in the 30th percentile. This really shocked me. I thought I would have an extremely large child. Like my mom. She had ridiculously huge babies. I was the smallest –2 weeks early on the higher side of 7 lbs. My sister was almost 9 lbs. My little bro was 2 weeks early and about an ounce away from TEN LBS. So yea, I cried a little when they told me my little boy is a little boy. My doctor laughed—apparently most women are glad to hear their babies are small- for laboring purposes, I guess? I think I would cry either way. Huge ball of emotion here.
I also cried a
little lot when she told me I am ONE cm dilated. SERIOUSLY.
hoping praying for more. Especially since I don’t want to be induced. I fear I am going to go past my due date. I am glad my hubs respects my wishes because I am so close to caving and begging to be induced (which my doctor will GLADLY do), but he knows that I really really do not want that at all. Thanks, hun…I think.
Here I am, in all my glory…me, baby & 30 extra pounds. I haven’t gained in 4 weeks—Brad and I found this hilarious considering the amount of food I put into my body. No clue how I haven’t gained. It is just weird.
Side note: I really want this McCarty Owl. I’ve collected owls for about 6 years now. Saw this at a store this weekend…its only $250. HA. HA.
