Update on the large round lady

Yesterday I went for my routine 38 week Dr appointment. Everything is looking healthy in fact maybe a little too healthy. After taking a few measurements and discussing my desire to wait until the 10th (cause wouldn't that make an awesome birthday.. 10-10-10) The Dr thought it best to see just how big our she-baby will be. The best way to do that is with an ultrasound. So I came back a little later for it. This would also help us decide if I might be at risk for something scary and it's name is... c-section. I am not saying that those guys are not safe and that millions of babies are born that way every week/year. But I am way scared of it... I have only delivered vag, even my miscarriages were as "natural" as I could make them. After reviewing the ultrasound we have a rather large baby in there. She is gonna come out with chubby cheeks. Right now she is weighing in at 8lbs 15oz + or - around 20oz. Her head alone measured that of a 42 week 2 day baby... Huh... So last night we went to Italian village as per tradition. Then I walked the neighborhood streets for an hour and a half. Today I am not sure what I will try.. The primrose sounds good, but I might try a little Castor Oil too... Just can't wrap my brain around the fact that it makes you sick.... Anyway... Would you say a little prayer that this little girlie makes her grand appearance soon. Otherwise we wait just till Tuesday for an induction... THE LIGHT!!!

I tried castor oil. I didn't make me sick nor did it do anything else. Try sex, but that also didn't do anything for me. I had a c-section with Roman. Not so bad. Day 2 is the worse, but after that you are only sore and itchy from the healing scar. Have you talked about being induced?

Oh my goodness! Love the healthy chunk!!! She will be so cute (chubby babies always are!) And I saw the pictures of your feet. Oh my. I. Am. So. Sorry. Seriously, I had feet like that with my first. Hang in there, and we will hope she does not (she needs an eviction notice!)

Reading the fact that her head is measuring big brought back memories of my last check up with Jake. When he was born his head measured 150% of that of a typical newborn child. I am just glad he was #3, so I was broken in. I am glad they are inducing you, although 10-10-10 would be an awesome day, but a happy mom is even better! Good luck with everything, we are thinking of you and praying for your sweet little family. I can't wait to see her, you guys sure make adorable kids!

Did your Dr. strip your membranes. That helps! Otherwise keep up your doing those long nightly walks help get things moving along. Baby still gets an Oct. birthday and in my opinion Oct. birthday's rock! Good luck!

P.s. I had two 8lb babies and they were easy. Slept through the night right away.
