I went to the doc today and it was my first time to be checked! It wasn't pleasant. I have put on a little weight...7 lbs total. Not too bad! I just have been SOOO hungry the last week! ALSO, I have already dilated to 1-2 cm and I am 50% effaced. I am measuring 2.5 weeks bigger. I asked if that warranted an ultrasound and he said he would schedule one for next week (Oct. 20th). He also said that my body was cooperating and maybe I wouldn't go much past my next appt. AHHHH! That is almost 2.5 weeks earlier than anticipated! AHHHH! I asked how big he thought he was and he said about 6.5 to 7 lbs! YIKES! He said we are not looking at a wimpy little baby!
I have added a few pictures. He has totally dropped to me. His head feels like I am trying to do a thigh master workout with him! My hips have started to ache again too.
I also got a few things in the mail yesterday! I got my ottoman. LOL, I don't know why the ottoman and glider rocker shipped separately, but, I should get the rocker today. I also got my car seat and stroller system. WHEW! I can bring him home from the hospital! LOL! I'm sure my neighbors had a hay-day watching me drag all of the big bulky boxes in the house. It was a chore putting it together. I was getting pretty frustrated. I also got the cutest Razorback jersey and pants from my friend, Sam! Matt LOVED them. It was so funny. I would have taken a picture but my phone was dead last night and I don't know what Matt did with the outfit! AH! I will take a picture and post tomorrow.
I should also get my playard today. I am excited about that too...now he can at least have a place to sleep! LOL. We should be all set...basic "stuff" wise. I am ready to hold him and to see his little face.
Dawson was kicking me last night and I was able to mobilize his little foot and made Matt come over and feel it. Matt was like "ooooh" and shuddered. LOL, he said it wasn't gross but really weird. I told him to tell me about it!
