Full Term

Well I hit full term last week, and now Mr. Man is just in their gaining weight. I keep telling him he is free to come out whenever he wants, but he only sticks his butt out at me or kicks me in the rib.

I guess he's not ready.

I had an appointment on Friday morning only to find out that I'm 3 cm dilated and 80% effaced. Yay for progress! The doctor is now concerned about baby boy's weight, as it appears that he weighed a whopping 7 lbs at 35 weeks. Yikes. The doc will not let me go past my due date and actually scheduled me for an induction on July 26th. Wow... that may be my baby's birthday :) Of course, Bob and I really hope that he comes before then!

Against doctors orders, I decided to take a trip down the shore for the weekend to relax with my family. It was wonderful and I'm so happy that we decided to go. Bob was nervous the entire time, being so far from our hospital and all, but I agreed to bring the car seat and my hospital bag with us, which made him feel a little better. Here are a few pics from the beach...

My huge belly at 37.5 weeks (please ignore my huge @ss & legs. thanks.)

I have my 38 week appointment tomorrow. I'm hoping that I'm 4-5cm and they send my right to L&D. Yeah right. I'll keep you posted.
