Yes, I'm still pregnant...

Sorry to those of you who guessed that I would have this baby yesterday. Believe me, I wanted it to happen yesterday too. But since it hasn't happened yet, we're still plugging along with appointments and what not. This morning I had an ultrasound. Apparently, my fluid level has really gone down and is in the normal range, so that was good news. We talked the sonographer into measuring the baby for a rough estimate of how big he'll be. Hold your breath ladies and gents, because he's gonna be big. His head is measuring big and he is weighing in around 9.5 lbs. Keep in mind that the measurements are not exact and he could be a pound to a pound and a half smaller or LARGER!!! I just love all these unknowns...time will tell I guess.
We have a non-stress test in a couple of hours and I am hoping they'll just keep me and put me out of my misery. Probably not though. I've been having contractions all the time, but they don't seem to stick around throughout the night. Whenever I wake up and am not in pain from the contractions, I actually get a little bummed. The first thing Seth asks me in the morning is whether or not my water has broken and if I am still having contractions.
I'm hoping the good doc will induce me on Friday if nothing has happened before then. I really don't want to be induced, but how much bigger will this baby get??? I always wonder what effect the steroid shots had/will have on his size. Weston and Koper were big babies too, but is this one coming out a manchild?

Oh Lacey, I keep thinking about you and hoping to see a baby post for you. I'm sorry that that little (or big as the case may be) guy is so cozy in there- Keep your chin up, girl! He is bound to get here soon : ). Good luck! And I'll be praying for you!

I think Valentines Day would be fun! Can you hold out that long?! Don't worry about size -- Channing was 9 pounds, 7 ounces and 23 inches long! Huge! But no complications and easy, easy recovery for me. So, you'll be fine! :) Stacie

Okay, I know I'm not a deciding factor on when you have the baby - but I need you to have it! I've paced a line in my floor, waiting for Weston to come up and ask me to come to rescue you! I'm so stessed! Have this baby! and make sure you're in the hospital when it happens - because I've had too many dreams filled with me being your only go-to person!

I know what it's like to have a big baby! Evan was 9 lbs, 6 oz! I will say, there is a plus side though. He was a lot healthier in the beginning than the others because he started out with more weight. He didn't have problems with being jaundiced and he slept and ate better. So, as annoying as it is (I was a week over with him), at least something good comes out of it! Can't wait to hear about the progress!
