38 Week Appointment

I am getting closer. I am 50% effaced and dilated to a 2. And my tummy is 39 cm. Yeah! I even had a contraction as the nurse was examining me. This is where everything starts to count. My doctor said he believes I am having a big baby. Aaron asked the doctor, "Do you think the baby will be over 8 pounds?" The doctor said, "Yes, depending on when he is actually born." I got the impression that Ian will be in the 9 lb weight range. Maybe even 10 lb. You've seen my brother, right? And my husband? The only concern my doctor has at this point is that he may have broad shoulders. Again, you've seen my brother and husband, right? The head shouldn't be a problem. But if the shoulders don't fit, that means the "c" word. Yuck! We have a lot to decide. I guess you have more chance of having a "c" word if you get started. So it is always better to let your body just go into labor by itself. I am so excited! I can see the end of the tunnel.

  1. YAY!! I'm so excited!! Hopefully you won't have to have a "c" word. But holy crap, he's a BIG baby. I never really thought about how freaking big Brandon is. Man alive! How did Maritza ever have his kids?!? :) I can't wait to see pictures of little (or should I say 'big') Ian.
