His Timing...

So this past Friday, I just had what will probably be my last ultrasound. My little boy is already about 5.5 pounds and is considered safe to be born. At this point, he probably wouldn’t need to spend much time if any at all in NICU. He also already has a head of hair on him. I couldn’t determine how much since the pictures at this point are really fuzzy (in case anyone is curious, the best pictures are seriously at 20 weeks and then they’re just less and less clear). He made the ultrasound technician’s life a bit difficult by constantly trying to punch and kick the monitor off my belly. I don’t think he cared for the pressure much.

The only “OMG” incident which is not really an “OMG” incident is that my cervix is already a bit shorter (effaced) then expected for being 34 weeks (last week). In some ways, that’s a really good thing because that means I’ll be able to most likely avoid a c-section. The draw back to it which is not really a “bad” thing is that he can possibly come earlier then my planned 39th week induction. This might throw off plans that his grandparents had for being here as well as his father had for his “last minute” stuff. But hey, one thing this baby has not made a secret of is that he’s in a rush. He was in a rush to be conceived and he’s been measuring a week ahead at every ultrasound I have had. Enough to be ahead but not enough to concern anyone.

The one thing I am a bit concerned with is my doctor telling me to stop working earlier then planned. If he is coming early I definitely want to stop earlier. But at the same time it is money to think about. I just don’t want to be stuck at home for a long period of time only to have him take his time. But I guess that’s the beauty of childbirth. You really just have to go with the flow because you don’t have too many options.

Until then, I’ll just hang out here being a bit more uncomfortable everyday. Thankfully he’s worth it.
