final bump update

I can hardly believe that today's the final bump update before baby boy arrives! We're 38 weeks today, with plans to induce (hooray for a canceled c-section) next Thursday, October 5. Though at yesterday's checkup, the doctor said I'm already in the early phases of labor, so he very well may make his debut early. His sister was a full week early, so we'll see if he's an early bird as well. I'm so thankful this little guy decided to do what the doctor's said was "impossible" (due to his large size), and turn head down. The nurses and doctor himself kept saying "this never happens." So, we're happy to be the exception. At yesterday's ultrasound he was measuring at 9 and a half pounds - though that's really more of an approximation - so not so huge that he can't be delivered. Fantastic news all around.

My parents are driving down from Tennessee today so they'll be here for the birth and a few weeks after to help out - which we're incredibly grateful for. They missed Aubrey's birth by something like two days since she came earlier than expected, so I'm so glad they'll be here for baby #2, and Aubrey's just excited that she gets to spend time with Nana and Papa.

Tomorrow is my last day at work. Last time around I worked right up to the end, but I'm definitely feeling more tired this go around, so I'm looking forward to *hopefully* have a few days to rest and prepare before he makes his grand entrance. Which I attempted with Aubrey, but she came the day after I started my maternity leave. You just never know with babies...

  1. How exciting! I hope all goes well with labor and delivery! You look fabulous!

  2. That's so great that he turned! Best wishes for your delivery! Enjoy your days before baby boy!

  3. Another look that makes you look all tall and glam. Yayyyyy for the little guy cooperating with a flip around - I hope he gives you just the right amount of time to start your maternity leave with a little relaxation but not overstay on the inside :)
