Pregnancy Update: 35 1/2 Weeks

I went to the doctor on Thursday to have one more sonogram. I was so excited to have this one because I didn't have one at this point with Landree. My doctor just wanted to take one more peek and see how big our little guy is...and he's not that little. He's actually measuring in at 6 pounds 1 oz., which is what Landree weighed when she was born.

I'm officially about a month away from my due date, and a little less than 3 weeks from my scheduled induction date, and I'm already dilated to a 2 1/2. Jeff and I went over the questions we could think of (which aren't near as many this time around) and wanted to make sure I can have an 8 pound baby (I know people do it all the time, but just wanted to double check) and she said she doesn't think I'll have an 8 pound baby, because she thinks I could go into labor in the next two weeks! WHAT?

We've gotten all of the necessities out of the attic like our swing, car seat, bouncy seat, etc. and I guess we're ready! I still need to pack my bag, but Hudson's diaper bag is packed and ready to go. This morning when Landree got up and went into our room she asked if baby Hudson was here (I guess because of all the new baby items).

I'm really hoping to make it to August 31st. My mom and I have hair appointments scheduled for the day she flies in (and that's really important in the grand scheme of things), Landree's party on Saturday the 29th, Jeff preaches in our adult services on the 30th and we are having a big tailgating/concert at our church that evening, but I'm sure if the birthday party doesn't put me into labor the tailgating party will so Sunday afternoon would suit me just fine if I can hold out that long :) Oh, and I went ahead and ordered the cupcakes just in case :)

yeah Jen!!! Slow down for one thing (hard to do I KNOW...). I was dilated 2 for awhile, actually until the end. But hang in there...he will be here so soon. So exciting!!!!

That is so exciting:) Will was 3 weeks early and Harry was about that too. And Will was 8 lbs!!!!! I hope you get everything done and that Hudson makes his arrival on the 31st! I will need your address again so I can send a gift for the little man!

Take it easy.

Dilated to a 2 1/2, that's great!!! I can't believe how soon it will be before he's here! Congratulations!

Hooray! Baby Hudson will be here soon! I can't wait to see his sweet face!

I feel your pain -- Carson weighed 10 pounds, 4 ounces and he was two weeks early. Kamree weighed almost 9 pounds and she was a month early. We grow them big at our house!

Enjoy the last few weeks of your pregnancy! I am so glad you ordered the cupcakes too!

Wow! It is getting so close! How exciting!

NO! He has to wait until at least Sept 1 so he can fit into the "Gray Birthday month!!" August would blow that all out of wack!!!

It is so much less stressful the second time around! I remember with Caitlin, every time we took her to the doctor for a cold or something, they would ask us if this was our first child! With Maddie, we don't worry hardly as much!

So glad you have all this keeping you busy! The waiting game can be awful!

Where are you getting those huge adorable floppy bows for Landree? And where are you and Jodie getting your cupcakes from?
