39 Weeks and expecting a Big Ole Boy!

September 12th, 2008

It’s Friday, September 12 and I am a round and ripe 39 weeks pregnant!  We had an appointment at the specialist’s office yesterday to do what they call a Growth Scan, which is an ultrasound where they do all sorts of measurements of the baby’s head, belly, thigh bone and arm bones to determine an approximate size and weight.  Josh is coming in hot at 8 pounds, 6 ounces, with a margin of error close to half a pound.  So, it looks like when he comes out, he’ll be somewhere between 8 and 9 pounds.  No sweat!

I’m still out and about almost everyday…driving to doctor’s appointments , going to the grocery store, shopping and walking around.  My feet swell pretty bad and I don’t move super fast, but I’m getting around, which keeps me in good spirits.

Travis took me on our last fancy dinner date on Sunday.  We got dressed up and went out to the TPC Sawgrass and had a fantastic dinner.  I was able to stick pretty well within my diet, with the exception of a delicious piece of chocolate pie that we split.  It was so great to get out and just feel like a married couple again and not scared expectant parents. Travis has some pictures we took that night posted below.

We hope you are all enjoying life as summer winds down, college football season gets geared up and the weather (hopefully) starts cooling off a bit.  Please keep us in your prayers.  We are hopeful that Josh will come on his own accord in the next few days.  If not, the doctors will schedule an induction or C-section by next Thursday, the 18th, which is his due date and we’d sure rather go the natural route.

Love to you all.  Crisi
