38 Week Bumpdate

So I am hoping that this will be my last Bumpdate.  I guess only the little boy inside of my tummy can determine that for sure though.

We went to the doctors on Tuesday and things are moving along nicely according to my doctor.

I was 1 centimeter dilated and 50% effaced.  She stripped my membranes in hopes that it will help labor progress.

We are now in the home stretch and the definite, not so fun, part of the waiting game.

I have gained a total of 30 pounds now and am fine with that.  I assume I will end this pregnancy with a total weight gain of 35 pounds.

The doctor estimates that little boy is around 7 pounds right now which makes me the happiest mama ever!  I was so fearful that we would be looking at closer to a 9 pound baby.  I know things can change, but this positive estimate makes me thrilled - and my lady parts too!

At 38 weeks, Baby Hughes is the size of a celery bunch.  He is approximately 19 inches this week.  He is now breathing and urinating more often and has his meconium ready for his daddy! :)

We have the diaper bag packed and in the car ready to go.

The car seat is also installed.  I am determined that if you have any questions on how strong your marriage is, try installing a car seat and building a crib together.  We survived but it was tough. :)

His nursery is together and ready for him, although there are still a few projects to finish before I will post pictures of it.

We can't wait to meet our little boy.  Please send positive thoughts our way for his safe journey into this world - hopefully while you are reading this :)
