Hello there! I am hoping and praying this is one of my last bumpdates. I can’t believe I am 37 weeks pregnant already! I am very aware that babies (especially first) come when they want to, so I’m not getting my hopes up that he will come early, but a girl can dream! I am definitely starting to get a little uncomfortable and our evening walks are getting tough. I went to the doctor today and we had our final ultrasound! Our little man weighed 6 lbs. on the nose! I’m so thankful we will have a normal size baby and not a 10.3 pounder like his father was. The doctor said she thinks he will be around 7.5 lbs. I am 1 cm. dilated and 40% effaced!
I’m trying not to rush these last couple of weeks because I want to savor every last moment of our family of two. I know things will never be the same. That makes me sad in one way but so excited in a BIG way for this next chapter of our lives. I can’t wait to see Hampton and hold him. I’ve been about to die to kiss those little feet that have been kicking me all this time. It’s weird to think there is a full grown baby in my stomach right now, but then he kicks and I’m quickly reminded that that is indeed the case. I can’t begin to tell you how thankful we are for this incredible blessing.
With all of that being said, I’m also getting very anxious and nervous about the delivery. I do NOT want a c-section. It is terrifying to me. I’m praying so hard for a natural delivery, and would greatly appreciate your prayers as well. Fingers crossed we have him soon! I’d be okay with going into labor any day now. Again, a girl can dream!
I’m off to eat some pineapple and bounce on my birthing ball! Have a lovely weekend!

Don't rush it, you still have three weeks left! My husband was also a 10 pound baby, and it terrified me lol and the doctors never told me how much my baby weighed when I was pregnant. He ended up being 7 pounds. Make sure your delivery doctor knows that you don't want a c-section so that you aren't pressured to do something you don't want- you don't think clearly when your in pain.
