Baby Mac Monday Update

36 Weeks and baby already has a cheese head. HA HA HA!

So I wanted to post an update on our doctors appointment from Monday especially for those of you who haven't taken a guess in the baby pool. It's been fun to see the guesses and it will be interesting to see if anyone gets close.

Ok so we visited my doctor on Monday and things still look good. It's so funny because baby moves plenty when we're at home but at the doctors office it seems like baby just decides it's time to take a nap or stop moving. Maybe baby knows we're watching and is trying to hide. Like Jurassic Park style if I don't move they can't see me kind of thing. HA HA HA! But of course the doctor is an expert and managed to make baby move a bit and he said everything looks fine.

We're now in week 38 so the doctor did check to see if I'm making any progress. (I'll spare you the details because either you'll know what stuff means or you probably don't care to know.) I was only 1 cm dilated but 60% effaced so the doctor said we'll schedule another appointment for next week to see if I've made any more progress by then. We go back on Monday again to get checked. If nothing has progressed we will likely be waiting through week 40 to see what happens but you never know maybe baby will decide to join us during week 39. I know the doctor won't want to go much over week 40 though because we've already talked about the possibility of the baby being big the longer we wait. Ah either way I guess we'll see what happens.

In the meantime I wanted to share a video my BFF Kim sent me a long time ago. Ok well not too long ago I guess. It was around the time when we found out we were expecting so that's not that long if you think about it. Anyway, it was a cool video then but means even more now. It's one of those crazy things when someone can send you just the thing you needed at the time you need it without even knowing it. That's good stuff. If you're a soon to be first time mom I can't promise you won't cry when you watch it but it's worth it.
