Whoa big momma. I'm not sure it was a good idea to want to document my growth online. There it is though... my belly at 40 weeks, 1 day. I've gained 43.5 lbs, and don't have any maternity clothes that fit anymore. I'm so big that even my size large shirts don't fit anymore. Still, I shouldn't complain. I'm in great health, and Henry seems to be healthy too. At my appointment on Friday I was almost 4 centimeters dilated, and 80% effaced, so it can't be too far off. Luckily, my doctor won't induce until I hit 42 weeks, and I'm betting Henry will come before then.
Tonight we had a little bit of fun with the kids, guessing the day we think Henry will be born, and how much he will weigh:
Sophie - Saturday, Aug.21 - 45lbs. (yikes!)
Emma - Friday, Aug. 20 - 6 lbs.
Ethan - tomorrow, Aug. 16 - 8 lbs. 2 oz.
Andrew - tomorrow, Aug. 16 - 9 lbs. 8 oz.
Elliott - Tuesday, Aug. 17 - 8 lbs. 8 oz.
Me - tomorrow, Aug. 16 - 9 lbs. 7 oz.
