Big Boy

I had my last ultrasound, as shown above. My placenta is still in the same spot, but the Doctor has officially decided that we are going to proceed with a vaginal delivery and they will watch me for abnormal bleeding. In the case of a c-section they will be ready, so I can't complain too much.

In bigger news...the baby weighs a whopping 6 lbs. 12 oz. (the average is 6 lbs. at this point) and I gained an astronomical 9 lbs. in the last 2 weeks. Luckily I am still with in my allowable weight gain and I can still gain 4 more pounds without going over. He's just a big boy.

I am dilated 1 cm and 50% effaced right now too! My mom told me to prepare for an early delivery, but I keep telling our little guy to hold out a few more weeks. We shall see!
