36 Weeks

YAY!!! The countdown has begun!! 4 weeks left :) Doctor visits are now weekly, and yesterday he gave me some fun facts:

As of right now:
I'm 1cm. dilated
I'm 65% effaced
The baby is head down
The Doctor thinks he will be born 7-7 1/2 lbs

I'm getting so excited!! Tomorrow is my last day of work, and I'm becoming more and more anxious to have our little boy here with us. I feel like there's so much to still get ready...but i don't know what!! Mothers, please advise!

There is a bit of sad news's my ankles, or lack thereof. I guess I haven't really seen them in a while to notice this before. It's hard to see below my stomach, and it's winter so I'm constantly wearing pants and/or socks so I hadn't noticed until the Dr.'s appointment, but I have swollen ankles!! My bragging right for no-swelling is gone.

We're heading home to Las Vegas for Christmas on Sunday and coming home the day after Christmas. (the Doc thinks this baby could come early...hopefully not that early, but we're not taking any chances!!)

You look so great! I think you look even skinnier cause you have such a little rear. Me on the other hand, when I get preggo I will have a baby bump on both sides :) sad....

You still look so tiny, Christine!! you are so cute. If swollen ankles is the worst you have, count your blessings. And as far as the doctor telling you that it may come early...just remember, it may not! (But I'm hoping for you it does:) Be sure to call us when he arrives.
