My monster baby

At my last OB appointment I got a U/S to get an estimate on how big my little man is.
At 34 weeks he is measuring about 37 weeks and his estimate weight is 7 lbs 9 oz!!!!
He is going to be HUGE if the u/s was accurate!

I have been wondering why I was so much more uncomfortable with this baby than I was with Miss. Ora.

Well full term Ora was 7 lbs 1 oz. Ari's estimate weight is OVER her full term weight.

My doctor is talking about c-section to make sure the baby doesn't get stuck, but I am terrified of having my stomach cut open to take my child out. I want a natural birth where I can hold him immediately after he is born. I want to bond immediately.

I don't want to be strapped down and my baby whisked away from me. Makes me want to cry.

I think I am going to tell him I want to have this baby like my other two.

This has been so stressful. This entire pregnancy has gone the complete opposite way of how I wanted it to, and it's looking like birth is going to be the same way.

No wonder im in so much pain and so huge. 34 w bb is measuring 37 weeks. Weighs 7lbs 9 oz!!!!!

Judah checking out the fish at the ob!

My wonderful babies sleeping.

Wearing brothers shirt!

Judahs new bed. Thanks.to our neighbors!!! Yay

Oras new bed thanks to the neighbors!! Yay again. Dont mind the "art" on the walls

So I co-slept with Judah in the beginning. He has really never slept in his own bed/room. Yes he is almost 5. He has been sleeping in the basement on the couch with his dad. I have been sleeping on the couch in the living room and Ora in her playpen.

I keep telling Jonathan I wish we were "normal" and slept in the same bed, but Jonathan needs to sleep on the couch in the basement or he gets really bad acid reflux, and since about 25 weeks in my pregnancy, my groin has been killing me and so I have to sleep in certain positions to feel ok. The couch is the best, not to mention the living room is the only room with a ceiling fan and I need to sleep under it or else I sweat like crazy.

I have been doing a lot of crocheting for my etsy shop. I am so excited about it! I hope people will buy my items! :)

Have a goodnight everyone!

Aw, I enjoyed this post. Just so you know...I've had 2 C-Sections with my 1st two... 1st one I was DESPERATE to have a natural delivery. 12 hours of labor and a lowering heart rate for baby shifted into an emergancy C-section and I cried so hard I could barely keep my eyes open to see him when they brought him out. I felt ROBBED. I still wish I could have had it that way.
2nd baby was schedule C-section and it happened so fast but I felt SO energized and rested and was able to enjoy the seconds after she was born and see her and it wasn't but about 10 minutes before she was in my arms.. the dr's talk you through the entire thing and hubs is there to watch/photograph everything. I know C-section is in my future for #3 and I guess having a healthy baby and Mom in the end is the goal... but I totally get why you would be freaked about a C-section.. its tough, but if it has to happen, notice how much more energy you have to be alert for baby!! :) Best wishes no matter what.
