38 Weeks



Yesterday marked 38 weeks for our little one. The last few weeks have gone by so fast! I've been surprised at how much energy it takes to grow a baby. Things are going well, although it seems like the really good things don't come easily. After spending about 4 weeks head down and ready to go, the baby decided that this was no longer the position for him. So he did a sommersault and has stayed top side up! My doctor discovered this at my appointment last week and he decided to play the "wait and see" game, hoping that the baby would sort himself back out. No such luck. I had another appointment today, and the doctor decided the best thing is for this baby to come out, one way or another. I'm only dilated to a 2 or 3 and about half-way effaced, but the baby is just getting bigger (which means more uncomfortable for me and for him because he's not the right way) and the doctor does not want labor to start on its own since the baby's breech. So Saturday is the big day! They'll admit me Saturday and give me an epidural to keep my uterus relaxed, and then the doctor will try to flip the baby by pushing and proding him along. If it works, then the doctor will enduce labor and we'll be on our way. If the baby is engaged too much and won't move, then they'll do a c-section. The doctor thinks that Option 2 is probably what will happen. Either way, Dave and I are so excited to think that we'll be holding our little baby the day after tomorrow! We'll keep y'all posted!

Oh, I forgot to put how cute and small you are. You don't look like you are ready to have a baby. That is what I looked like a few months before I had Austin.
