Doc Appointment - 38 weeks

Yesterday we had a doctor's appointment and a surprise ultrasound. I have made no progress - I guess little Henry is still pretty content in there.

I had mentioned to the doctor that he wasn't really moving too much that morning so she hooked me up to a Non Stress Test machine. Henry's hearbeat was all over the place so we were sent for an ultrasound to check his fluids and to make sure the cord was not around his neck.
As we were leaving the doctor said to me "If he doesn't check out okay, we will deliver today...." I think my heart dropped - I know we are ready with everything but it was just a shock.

About an hour later we got to see the little guy and everything checked out just fine! He has the chubbiest little cheeks and is weighing in around 7 lbs 8oz. He is really crammed in there and apparently he has some long legs! We were so relieved to have seen him and see that everything was okay.

Now we wait...........................

To all who are expecting - we don't have too much longer now!!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Doc Appointment

Was at the doc this morning - no new news to report. Henry seems to be quite comfortable in there for now. We go back again next week.

My doc did say just because there is no progression today doesn't mean that things can't change over night. Tomorrow I will be full term so that was some good news.

I am just so ready to meet him and hold in my arms already!!

Doctor's Appointment

I know I have been a little behind with posts lately, but I will try and get some pictures up from this past weekend.

But for now here is a little update from my appointment on Tuesday. I was a little nervous going in becuase this was the first time she was going to tell me if Henry is ready to go with an exam. His heartbeat was great and he is already head down. I am a little thinned and about a finger tip dialated. My doctor thinks that he is going to be about an 8 pounder :) We return next Tuesday to see if there is any more progression.

I am kind of thinking that he might be here a little early. I know first time moms usually go later but I don't know, I just have a feeling.
