Still Pregnant...

So. Yesterday was my due date and still no baby. I'm not completely miserable, but I'm so anxious to meet this little guy. But he hasn't even dropped yet.

At my appointment on Tuesday, we found out that he's big, which is pretty common for my family. They did an ultrasound to measure him - yay, we got to see him again. 8 lbs., 5 oz. Yikes! So they had me go into the hospital for a pelvic scan to make sure I'd have room to deliver such a big guy. Luckily, I should be fine so we're just waiting. And waiting. I was 1 cm dialated on Tuesday and I lost (or is it found?) the mucus plug this weekend and have had a few contractions. I know. Gross. TMI. But hopefully it won't be too much longer.

I have another appointment scheduled for Tuesday. Then we're tentatively scheduled to check in to the hospital on Thursday to induce. Hopefully he'll show up before then, but we'll meet this little guy one way or another.


  1. Hope your little guy decides to come before your induction this week! But...If he does decide to wait until Thursday, that's a good day. He'll share a birthday with me! :-)

    Can't wait to hear how your appointment goes on Tuesday. But, maybe he'll be here before then!? Hope everything goes well!

  2. Wishing you all the best for a speedy and easy labor and a wonderful meeting with your little guy!

  3. I'm thinking of you -- I know from personal experience how hard that wait is --

    He'll be here before you know it -- however it happens and it will be a whirlwind! A beautiful whirlwind.
