38 weeks 3 days: we have a date!!

Big news from our appointment yesterday: we have an induction date! We will be going in on Sunday evening..so only 5 more days unless he comes on his own time before then! Our butterball Bryce weighed in at 8 lbs 5 oz. according to ultrasound measurements- which I will repeat myself and say they have a 10-15% inaccuracy rate. Either way, he is a very healthy size and my mommy guess is that he will weigh around 8 lbs. 9 oz. at birth. Also, we found out that I am 2cm dilated, 50% effaced and he is at -2 station. Yay!!
We are so excited to know that Bryce will join us here in this world in less than a week- FINALLY!

With that said, the next time I post on here it will be about Bryce's arrival! Please pray with us for a smooth and safe delivery, and for a healthy baby boy. Thank you for sharing in our journey- it has been such an exciting time in our lives, and we look forward to what lies ahead.

As I promised, the finished nursery:

Bryce in his nursery: 38 weeks 3 days

37 weeks! just waiting...

37 weeks 4 days..and counting!

 Officially full-term and if I do my math correctly, Bryce COULD (we can never know for sure) be weighing in at around 8 lbs right now. Mommy would love it if you would just come out now, little man!

This week has been a week of re-finishing the nursery, cleaning, organizing closets, and also resting. Our 37 week appointment yesterday was short and sweet- the normal routine with our weekly NST test. Have I mentioned how much I love hearing his heartbeat for 20-30 minutes? The first few seconds alone brings me so much peace and joy, so I cannot even imagine hearing his first cry! He did great again, so now we just wait around until our next appointment on Monday.

... I will post pictures of the finished nursery next week and give an update after our appointment. Or, maybe our Bryce man will decide to come before then :)

"Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate." (Psalms 127:3-5 ESV)

Thank you Lord for our sweet little reward!
