Excuse me can you repeat that!.....

Unfortunately I am still dealing with my computer crisis, I wish there was a way that I could motivate William a little more to fix the issue. But I am trying to be patient both with the tech issue and my sweet sweet hubby.

But anyway, I wasn't able to blog last week because I was at my family's river house all week, and despite how much fun it is there is no Internet so I was unable to update you guys on what happened the Friday before last at the Dr.'s office.

The appointment started as usual i.e weigh in, blood pressure, questions, concerns, etc. Then my Dr. pulled out the magic measuring tape again. She measured me for the first time two weeks prior, she really didn't say much about nor explain what it did, and I really didn't ask. This time she measured and said "35 inches" so then I proceeded to ask well what does that mean? That is when she dropped the bomb she said that I was measuring 35 weeks (note that at the time I was only 31 weeks) I then asked her well what does that mean. And she replied, "That he is a really BIG BABY" she proceeded to tell me that since last appointment that she has been thinking about INDUCTION (insert the music of dun dun dun). And I said ok well when would you be inducing me, or rather how early would you be inducing me. I was concerned that they would take him too early. She said no no, we don't induce earlier than 39 weeks. So that made me feel a little better. But knowing that I am such a tiny person and he is such a big baby I asked what were the chances of having a c-section, she said it all depended on how things went during my delivery, I would just have to wait and see how I was progressing, she said that she would not let me labor for too long with out progressing. Which was terrifying and reassuring at the same time. I left the Dr.'s office over flowing with so many different emotions. I was so excited that he was doing well and that he would be here soon, but at the same time I was nervous about the unknown.

My Dr. did say that she would be doing one additional ultrasound to get a better idea of how big he really is, but that wouldn't happen until we got closer. So I am excited that I will get to see him one more time before I see him in person. I guess the only other thing that has been eating me up is that I really don't want to pick his birthday, I want him to come when he wants to come. You see I take birthday's really seriously, I think they are so special so I want his special day to come when God wants it to come, but at the same time I want things to go well. So I guess I really don't know anything other than the fact that I need to let things go and put it all in God's hands. Well to sum up this picture less blog post I will say that there will be more updates to come this Friday when I go back in to see the Dr. so I am sure there will be LOTS to share about our growing boy!

So he's measuring 4 weeks ahead!?? WOW! I have a fear that our baby girl is going to be huge. The scary part is there is nothing we can do about it and we have to push them out! :)

Can't wait to hear what your doc says at this next apptm. You could be holding your baby boy VERY SOON!! So exciting!
