Baby update

So this is a bad picture of the ultrasound, I had to post it so you could see his nose. Doesn't it look just like Luke's? That is his arm in the way. We had the ultrasound to measure his growth. He's about a week big, which they say is no big deal and normal, but for me that is big. I've been saying for weeks that he is big! They said if I go full term he would be 7 or 8 lbs which is big for me. I just realized I posted these backwards. In the next post you'll see I started early labor the other night. Dr. Martin wasn't very happy that I didn't go to the hospital. After checking me he said the baby's head is down and I'm dilated to a 1 which is a lot for 32 1/2 weeks. He says if I can make it to the end of May, the baby should be fine. We don't want to go before then. So, I'm pretty much on light duty until then. I'm really missing spin!! Knowing me, I'll end up needing to be induced, which he will do on June 24 th.

I love the picture! It's so exciting wondering what they'll look like once they are born. It's so great you got a little peek.

If you can hold out, June 24th is a GREAT day to be born! I was born that day! :) So, there you go, you have to wait to have the baby then. ;)

the 3-d's freak me out a little! He does look like Luke. I cannot wait to meet him. You need to take it easy... and you still want to go to spin... you are crazy! take a break and relax!!

Follow those dr. orders -which is so easy with 3 other kids right!
Take it easy, June will be here before you know it.

You might have him on your birthday. If you're already a 1 you probaly won't make it that far though. I think those ultrasounds are very neat. I've never had one.

You were brave to stay home and not go to the hospital, but now that I think of it, I kinda of did the same thing. I put off calling my doctor when I was in labor until it was a little later in the morning so I wouldnt wake him up! Hey we were watching a home video last night and it was with Darren and his family doing a play for Christmas...funny!!!

Girl...you better be good and lay low. That would not be good for that baby to come anytime soon. Spin will be there in a couple of months. (Think of it this way...distance makes the heart grow fonder)
