She's Almost Here!

Since the baby is almost here I thought it time I finally got this blog started. I will do my best to keep it up but no guarantees. :-)

We found out this past Monday that our petite bebe may not be as petite as we thought. Already measuring just 2 ounces short of 9 pounds at 37.5 weeks with a head in the 94th percentile and a belly in the 98th percentile I guess I can finally understand why everyone says my bump is so huge. Because of this as well as a few other possible, though unlikely, issues that could arise in labor from the baby's high position and the higher end of normal amount of amniotic fluid the doctor recommended that if I haven't gone into labor by Wednesday, October 20th that I will need to have a c-section. It wasn't something I had expected but now that I have had a few days to process it I have gotten used to the idea. So it looks like the baby will have a birthday of 10/20/10. Kind of a cool date. Until I have pictures of an outside baby I leave you with ultrasound pictures of the little cutie.
