So just for comparison I took some photos of myself at 36 weeks and 2 days with this little Snickerdoodle. Here are a couple of those:
The first one is Jon's view and the second I took of myself, obviously, in the mirror. Note my hair. Later that day I went to see my sister in law Diana and she chopped it off for me.
Here is what I look like this morning, a day before 37 weeks:
Here is a closer up on the new hair.
I know it sounds silly to induce for all those reasons, but I live so far from the hospital that the Dr. wants to induce me anyway and I am in so much pain with this pregnancy that I am fully voting for the sooner the better. Some mornings I wake up and think, "geez, can I just get the epidural now?" Noble's pregnancy was so much easier. I was so much stronger and in so much less physical pain. Doing pilates really helped me physically with that pregnancy. This one I was sick for so long that by the time I felt well enough to get back to pilates I was already 7 months and didn't feel good about starting to exercise at that point.
Anyway, so I scheduled to be induced at 4 a.m. on March 25th. I will be 39 weeks and 1 day. My last 3 babies I have been just a couple days over my due date. Noble was 8 lbs. 12 ozs. Camille was 7 lbs. 7 ozs. and Lauren was 9 lbs. 4 ozs. I was a full week over my due date with Ann Marie and she was 8 lbs. 6 ozs. and Sabrina's due date was questionable but she was 7 lbs. 14 ozs. Their heights ranged from 19 to 21.5 inches.
So does anyone want to guess how big this baby will be? Let's see who can guess closest!
