37 weeks 4 days

I had my 37, almost 38 week appointment today. Good news: According to Dr. Judd I have a 2% chance of going over my due date, 20% chance of having her this month, and 80% chance of having her between New Years and my due date. Supposedly I'm pretty "far along" for a first timer - I'll spare you the details in case you are squeemish, and because that would probably just be weird to disclose that kind of info on a blog.

Dr. Judd said he thinks I'll probably have her around the 4th - 6th of January. I'm ok, with that. I'm obviously overly excited about having my little girl outside of my belly and in my arms, but I personally would like her to have a birthday not so close to Christmas day, which means I either want her here by tomorrow (which ain't gonna happen) or wait to come until maybe three days after Christmas. Guess I will just sit back and enjoy the holidays, spend some quality time with just Eric, and try not to get too FAT on the holiday snacks :) Here's a pic.

You are adorable! So I won't be surprised if Dr. Judd is right because he was really close to the time of day Bailey was born. All the nurse's kept telling me not until closer to dinner and he said by 3 pm and she was born at almost 2 pm. Good luck I am way excited for you!
