Baby Update

I went yesterday for a growth ultrasound. Our little boy wasn't really cooperating so we didn't get any good pictures. We did find out that he is measuring perfectly, has a full head of hair, and has a nice layer of fat (our technician said he was nice and healthy). We didn't even get a glimpse of his face because he was covering it up with his hands. The technician jostled my stomach but he wouldn't budge!

We are going to be parents at least a week earlier than we originally thought though. Since I'm considered a little bit high risk, they are going to induce me at 39 weeks if he hasn't come by then. Normally they would let me maybe go to 41, so 39 sounds good to me!! That means we have to really get everything ready this weekend. :) That also means I only have two more full weeks of school!

I have to start going twice a week, once for a doctor's appointment and once for a non-stress test. My doctor said that there is nothing to worry about but since I'm considered to be a little high risk, I have to do it to monitor our little guy.

I'm so happy tomorrow is Friday!!

Sorry you didn't get to see the little guy's face. He wants to wow you when he makes his grand entrance! Yay for Friday and a bigger YAY for Labor Day!

He will be here before you know it! Can't wait to hear what name you picked and see what he looks like. I am on pins and needles! :-)

That's exciting news, getting to see him earlier than you thought, makes up for the lack of the pic. A full head of hair? How cute is that!

Wow! That's so soon! I know you've got to be SO excited! :-)

We were walking through Grant's Farm today and it hit me that you had to be close, so I came home tonight to check your blog to see what news you had. Wow, a couple more weeks. It is going to be such a great time for you two. We are praying for you.
