Baby Update

So I had a little bit of a scare this week. I went for my 38 week OB appointment and the doctor said I was measuring small and wanted me to go for an ultrasound. She was worried I might have low fluid and need to be induced. I went today for the ultrasound which confirmed that everything was OK despite me measuring small. The baby was estimated to be a little more than 7 pounds! Whoa! The doctor said the good thing is that it shouldn't gain much more weight between now and when its born.

I have only 9 days left! I can't believe were going to have the baby so soon from now. It seems surreal that were going to meet this little person who will be spending the rest of our lives with. I'm really excited now. Before it seemed so far off that I wasn't that excited, like waiting for Christmas in March. Now that its days away it feels like its really happening.

Finally, in some ways it was good that I got a little scare because it really forced me to tie up all the loose ends on everything like packing my hospital bag, washing baby clothes and completing paper work for the new house. I'll keep everyone posted on baby updates via blog (luckly I'll be able to do that from my hospital room) which is easier than calling everyone every few hours.
