Full Term!

As of today, I'm officially full term. I've entered my 37th week!! Yesterday was my weekly trip to the doctor and all is well. I haven't started dilating, yet, but the doctor was able to feel the baby's head (weird, right?). I brought Dan with me because I was having a sonogram done. What's funny is that he says the baby is too big to get a whole picture of him. According to the measurements the technician took (I have no idea how this is done), the baby weighs 6 lbs. 13 ounces. I'm also up to 25 lbs. Hopefully that'll be all with my weight gain. I am swelling up a lot so that's why I think I've jumped in weight in the past two weeks.

Anyway, who cares about how much I weigh? My little guy is doing great! I was given my chart. Just in case I go into labor, I'm able to give it to the hospital when I show up. I can't believe William will make his presence very soon! I'm so excited about this. Let's see how much longer we have to wait.

William? I thought his name was Milko. HA HA HA HA!

Yeah, I retained so much water that my size 8 feet went to size 10. No kidding.

Hi Xia, I have seen you on others comments and know that you are a friend of Salome. I just was wondering how you were doing and I wanted to wish you luck with the arrival of your little guy. My littlest one was born on June 17th and she is getting so much fun now smiling and all. Anyway, it is fresh in my mind how those last few weeks are playing the waiting game...hang in there. Wishing you the best of luck!!!
