9 Months

According to the 40-week pregnancy calendar, I am officially 9 months pregnant. I had a doctor's appointment this morning, and from her medically official "squeeze-the-belly-in-a-couple-different-spots" judgment, she does not think that my baby is 8 pounds yet. She guessed that the baby would be 7-7 1/2 pounds.

So who should I believe? The ultrasound machine - which I had previously heard wasn't great at predicting weight? or my doctor, who uses her hands to weigh a baby?

I guess only time will tell how big she really is. It's not like it's a big deal anyway. I'm just anxious to meet my baby. She's due on Tuesday, but I think she'll be later than that. Jake's guess is that she'll come next weekend sometime (the 29th-1st), and his official guess is October 2nd.

Who knows? Maybe she'll come tomorrow.

Your mom sounds more anxious than you!

you never know when she could come. that is the exciting part of not having a scheduled c-section. i would trust your doctor, by the way. i think she knows more than the ultra sound machine. are you ready? are you and jake enjoying your time together and running lots of last minute errands? because you will never be able to do that again.

Trust no one. Except the scale after your baby comes out. And remember about what I said about this weekend, hold off until at least Sunday. Thanks.
