Week 38 Starts Today!

** UPDATE** Induction now will be Wed morning the 28th at 6:30 am!***

Week 38 Starts with an Ultrasound & Dr. Appt. Both of which I have been really looking forward to!
Weight Gained So Far:  approx. 45lbs
Progress Report From Dr.: Dialated to 2, -2 station and still 70% effaced.
Current Symptoms: My knees hurt! Too heavy a load!  I am also very anxious! After seeing Cory and Rachel have their babies I am ready to join the party and have mine as well. 

Ultrasound shows: He is off the charts now!

Fenn's Approximate Weight:9lbs and 2 ounces
Does he have any hair ( something I kept forgetting to ask): no, just a small mullet :(
Amniotoc Fluid Levels: 22 more than twice that of most peeps at this stage in the game.


So today we learned that he is even, HUGER, (yes I know that is not a word) than we thought and that is why my everything hurts! He is as low into the pelvis as he can get, which explains bladder pain etc. Because of all of this, the doc thinks I have a really good chance of pushing him out and we are gonna induce THURSDAY July, 29th!!  My bubs BIRTHDAY TOO. that way he wont get too much bigger, but his lungs will have another week. I'm scared to death but so ready to do this , so ya'll start praying now that his shoulders dont get stuck and that I can get him outta there!

This is what a fat sumo baby looks like. Check out his fat rolls on his head! ha

I have been following your blog for a while, and when you hadn't posted in a couple of days, I was sure the next post would be the "He's here!" one. How very exciting to finally have an end date in sight. You'll do fantastic! And yes, he most certainly looks like a sumo baby! : ) Best of luck, and savor your final days sans baby. Motherhood is a wild (and fantastic) ride!

I can not wait to see that little joker next week! Maybe that is why Walker cried all day...he is also ready for Fenn to be here so he can have play dates to Target and the park this fall! You will do great next week...sounds like he is well on his way out with those stats! If Chad can share his b'day with Walker, Erik can share his also! Viva la baby!
