Big Update

I had a Dr apt today and everything is looking good. The Dr was a little concerned because I told him that since I caught my cold the baby has been really mellow. So he sent me to the hospital to be monitored and to make sure that the baby had enough fluids. This meant they had to do an Ultrasound. Of course we were excited for the ultrasound because we got to see the baby again. They hooked me up to a monitor and he is great. Then we got to see him and we know for sure that he is still a he! Then they did a measurement and he is measuring...are you ready....9 lbs 6 ozs!! That's right, at 37 weeks 3 days, he is already over 9 lbs! In the ultrasound, you could really tell that he is SQUISHED in there! The poor guy is crammed!

So, my wonderful Dr told me that he was completely comfortable inducing labor tomorrow night (he is out of the office in the afternoon tomorrow, otherwise they would have induced tonight). This means that Andy will be here by the end of the week.

I know, pretty crazy! I am so happy that Julie will be at day care all day tomorrow which gives me time to get the house ready and change the sheets for my mom to stay here and watch Julie. Yay! I am still in a bit of shock, but I am excited and I know this is the best thing we could ask for. So keep us in your thoughts, the next few days will be exciting and scary all at the same time.

You're the only thing on my mind today!

I want to text you, but I don't want to annoy "in labor" Rachel. (;
