40 weeks+

We were not surprised to see our due date come and go without baby's arrival.  But we're ready!  Had an appointment this morning with the doctor and things are looking good.  They did an ultrasound to check the amniotic fluid levels.  There's plenty in there which means baby's good and comfy and there's no reason to induce earlier than planned.  They estimate the baby weighs about 9lbs 4ozs as of today.  She told us that could be off by about 5% in either direction.  Me, "So you're telling me I'm definitely not having a 6 pound baby?"  Technician smiles and says, "I'm telling you that you're not likely having an 8 pound baby."  But he or she is healthy and content, what more could we ask for?

I'm currently scheduled to go into the hospital the night of Monday, July 26th and they'll induce me Tuesday the 27th.  But I think we're all hoping we don't make it that far.  I go in to the doctor's office again on Thursday the 22nd for another appointment and ultrasound.  We'll keep everyone posted!


  1. Been there done that with least they are preparing you for a big one, I had no idea she was going to be a Toddler at birth :) Ya never know what will happen, just think, you have made such a comfy home for that little one they don't want to leave yet :)

    If you get antsy get a pedicure and tell them to go heavy on the pressure points on your foot during the massage.
