Still preggger note...

Well, today I went to the perinatologist and everything looks wonderful with little baby boy. Which we are so thankful for! He is estimated at 7lbs 10oz and today I am 36wks and 6 days. So, pretty big, but healthy. After that I had to go to my OB. I had the NST and it looked great as well, I am not dilated or effaced, poo! I thought for sure I'd at least have that on my side, but I was completely wrong. He is still breeched which stops him from sinking way down into the delivery position and being that big he may never make it down too far. So, my question is why all the ??? I know it is still early, but at this rate the baby will be like 10lbs. We scheduled the c-section for July 30th. That is exactly one week early! The hospital will not let you deliver any earlier than that! So, my only hope is to go in to labor naturally. So, I am going to walk tons, and clean my house from top to bottom, even if it kills me. And try all of the other ways! spicey food, you know, jumping on a tramp, bumpy rides, but I refuse to do the caster oil. I do hear pineapple could help so bring it on! This baby will be out much sooner I hope! So, 2wks by the doctors orders, but hopefully sooner, with my orders, I can't take this any longer and babies can grow up to a pound a week and I think I have stretched as far as my body will let me!!! So, there you go, not much to share today!

I am so glad everything is okay. I have been wondering what has been going on. I can't believe how big he is. i hope you are coming to the family reunion if you are still pregos, Lexi really wants to meet you and Bingham. The last month really is the worst, and my baby was a week late. It was torture!

I'm so glad everything is looking good for little baby! But for you, I am sorry I know how you feel at the end of things, you just want to be donezo!! I have no torso, so not only do I show quickly, but baby is up in my lungs from 4 months on.. so I am soooo ready @ about 7 months. I like your walking average 9mo. preggers @ that time! So I know the pain! Anyhoo, I think you should have new baby boy on my birthday July 20th. It has always been a great day for me, & it sounds pretty too!! Love ya tons-Krissie:)
