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.
