38 week update

Our 38 week update:

Bradford’s heartbeat: 145

position: head down and feet still up in my lungs, so he hasn’t dropped down yet

Current weight: 7 lbs 10 ounces!  I was pretty surprised when we were told he is already this big.  It looks like we may have an 8 lb. baby if he makes it to 40 weeks.

I have been having a lot more contractions, but have not dilated at all yet.  We had our first real false alarm last night when my contractions started being pretty painful and coming anywhere from 3-7 minutes apart.  So, at 4 am, in a moment of being really tired and trying to decide what to do, Andy comments, “Here’s the plan: we’ll send the Pony Express to Emily Dowling to ask her what to do, then facebook Sarah Bruner, text message mom, twitter Susan Meadows, and e-mail Frank Lake (the doctor).  Then we’ll know what to do.”  This may have been a lot funnier to us because it was 4 am, but it made trying to laugh through contractions pretty fun.  

They did stop after a while, and I obviously did not go into labor so we went back to sleep after taking none of the above steps of communication.

  1. You know, you may not feel like it now, but you are fortunate that he’s still in there gaining strength! Someone I know just delivered at 33 weeks!
