I had an ultrasound and Peanut's about 6 lbs 13 oz...that's quite a bit of growing he did...in 3 weeks he gained about 1 lb 12 oz.
I am now 2 centimeters, 50% effaced and Peanut is half way in my pelvis (I swear it feels like he can't get any lower without coming out but I guess I'm wrong! )...the doctor says that that is a big change for just a week so he thinks that it won't be long before I go into labor! I'm hoping he's right because I am getting very anxious...I'm ready to have Peanut in my arms!!

I'm now 36 weeks and a day...if I go into labor they will not try stop it! I'm getting real excited now. Especially with what's been go on the last couple of days. I've been having a lot more contractions. Normally I only have 1 or 2 a day if any. Monday and Tuesday I had about 5 a day...Today as of now I've had 11!! They were 30 minutes apart this morning. Then I didn't have any from 9:30 until 11. Now they have been coming about every hour. They are nowhere near close together so I'm not in labor right now but something is going on. I guess my body's getting ready. I had a OB appointment this afternoon and while I'm not dilated yet I am getting closer...she could even feel his head! I will be going back for another ultrasound on the 23rd because Peanut's abdomen measurements were slightly lower than they wanted...that is of course as long as he doesn't decide to make his grand appearance before then!!
I'm off now to go finish packing my bag for the hospital!!

Last week my doctor ordered an ultrasound for today. It had been the second appointment (so it had been about a month) that I had measured 2 weeks behind...I had been either measuring ahead by a week or right where I should be. He wanted me to have an ultrasound done to check how big Peanut was...make sure he was growing right. So I went in this afternoon and he's about 5 lbs 1 oz...ultrasound tech said he's in the 24th percentile. We also found out that he's head down and very low. Guess he's getting ready!!! He was, as always, stubborn but I did get a couple of pictures...remember he is cramped in there. lol
Semi-random thought: Since he weighs 5 lbs 1 oz and I've only gained about 6 lbs, all my weight gain plus some more has gone to him...him (~5 lbs), the placenta (~1.5 lbs) and amniotic fluid (~2 lbs).
