37 weeks

I have now officially made it farther in this pregnancy than I did with Nathan. Even with my doctor closely monitoring me for pre-term labor, this baby is staying put in there for the duration.
I have definitely been much more uncomfortable with this pregnancy that with the last. She moves around a lot more than Nathan did, which was neat at first, now I just want a rest.
My 37-week appointment went well. I am 2 cm dilated and she is head-down and ready for delivery (me too!!!). I had another ultrasound to determine the size, since I consistently measure small. Everything looked great, although again her hands were in front of her face and we didn't get any good pictures. She is weighing an estimated 6 pounds, 10 ounces now. That is big enough for me. It is time to come out now.
If I don't deliver this week or next, the doctor is going to induce me on July 7th so either way we will have a baby by then. She doesn't think I will go that long, but who knows.
I will keep you posted on the progress.

It's funny that our kids are so close together. Nathan and Asher are only a few days apart, then these two will only be a few weeks apart :)
