My Most Recent Doctor's Appointment

So as of tomorrow I will be 34 weeks along and I had a doctor's appointment this afternoon. The ultrasound looked great and the doctor said our little guy is measuring on the big side for 34 weeks. The nurse said that women don't usually get checked to see if they've dialated until their 36 week appointment, but the doctor wanted to check me today because Reed came 3 weeks early and I started dialating around 33 weeks my last pregnancy.

Sure enough it looks like this little guy is going to follow in his big brother's footsteps because I am dialated to a 2 already and I'm 50% effaced (if that means anything to anyone). The doctor thinks this baby is going to come early like Reed did because I'm already at a 2. That was bitter sweet news to hear. I was excited to have a good ultrasound and measurements but I don't know if I'm quite ready for an early arrival. I still have a lot of "nesting" to do. I'll keep you posted on any updates as they come.

You are so cute! That is fun that he will be here early as well. I am sure you will get all of your nesting done. Good luck with all of it! :)

P.S I figured out the template to make it cute with all the fun paper, so I need to come show you. It's a piece of CAKE. That way you can have a cute background when (Chanze)hint-hint Comes.

You have tons of fun updates. Even though I see you every week it's so fun to read about all "that other stuff" Zhoee's obsessed with looking at this prego picture of you. She keeps letting me know there's a baby in there.

Hey Becky! Bryan just told me the other day that you had a blog! It is fun to hear about your pregnancy. Bry thinks I am going to go early too... which I wouldn't mind at all. :)

I am glad all is going well!
