Slow & Steady

Here I am.
39 weeks pregnant.
Dilated to a 2.
Membranes stripped as of this afternoon.
I'm actually measuring 38 weeks
which means this baby is Stoddard size, 8ish lbs,
rather than Wolfington size, which is closer to 9 or 10 lbs.
If he hasn't come on his own before my appointment on the 23rd,
we schedule an induction.
I think he's holding out for a name.
Nobody wants to be born without a name,
for crying out loud.

Well, from what I can see, you look great! Why no head? I hope you have a quick easy delivery and a happy healthy baby!

I had to prop the camera up on the desk and use the timer so I had to kind of take what I could get. But I wasn't really that sad to have my double chin cut off!

come on dude, what's up with the font color? Will a little bit of contrast kill 'ya? ha ha.
I can't wait to see Stoddard #2!

I guess if you are taking the picture like that, I'd have to say you did a pretty good job!

Andrea said...

WOW! you look FABULOUS!! Both of my boys were induced, my girls decided to come a few days early. Good Luck to you!! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that the baby will come quickly! But um, yes you need a name :)

jill it was great to see you for a little bit at Leah's! you look so beautiful! pregnant women are always so beautiful. pregnancy is such a beautiful and fascinating thing to me in general. :) well i'm still tellin ya that Cache is a winning name. :) We felt inspired to name our boy Cache. Curt really likes that it means hidden treasure. I'll be checking back to see what name inspired you. :) good luck with delivery!

Aww, sad, Boston was born bigger than Wolfington size even. He's Hatch size...ginormous! Um, and he was also born w/o a name...he went 3 days without a name, and we even have his daddy on video camera saying "I don't like the name boston"...blah!!!
