Emma Measuring Ahead!

Well, it's late, so this will be brief. We had an appointment today and I am measuring at 38 weeks...that's TWO WEEKS ahead. About 6 weeks ago, at 30 weeks, I was measuring at 32 but that doctor said it didn't mean anything at that point. Then our 35 weeks visit had her measuring right on schedule. Today, however, the doctor felt it warranted an ultrasound to make sure just how big she's getting. So, next Thursday (the 18th) we go for an ultrasound and to see our primary OB to discuss the results of the u/s and any suggested measures to take. If she is, in fact, getting big, he may suggest being induced sooner than later. Or, if she's REALLY big, a c-section. We're hoping for the former if she's getting big.

We'll keep everyone up to date, of course. It would be great to see her sooner than we thought, and would be great to be able to tell the folks when to hit the road...but I'm really hoping for things to be as natural as possible as far as being able to let my body labor. So, thanks for your prayers as we wait to see what happens. Love to all! Oh...and I also owe you all some pictures. Finished the nursery and had another shower or two since the last posting. Will get to that ASAP.

PS - Yes, her name is Emma. Emma Grace. :) So, that cat's out of the bag.
