Say what?

This afternoon we had a growth ultrasound and appointment for Miss. Emery. Imagine my surprise when the tech told me that our sweet baby girl (yes, she's still a girl for the fourth confirmation) is already weighing in at 5 pounds with six weeks to go!!! Her big brother was only 6 pounds 1 ounce three days early so I'm thinking she's going to beat him on the weight. ;o) When we got to the room and Dr. P came in he said she looks great, is measuring well, and the fluid levels are right on track. She is also head down now, which confirmed that I thought she had flipped. He then went on to say that we'll go ahead and have some kind of monitoring every week. Next Monday we'll have a NST, the following Monday we'll have a ultrasound so monitor movement, and the following Tuesday we'll have another growth ultrasound to see how much she's grown in the three weeks and the fluid levels. The following week we'll go ahead an schedule an induction. At this point I was rapidly trying to do some math in my head and in my book that came to four weeks. FOUR WEEKS! ACK! I know a lot of women hate to be induced but after going through all we went through to get our babies, I'm open to whatever I need that will guarantee them safe in my arms so induce away when you think it's time doctor!! Jeff and I were looking at the calendar and I won't be one big surprised if we end up with the date of Oct. 12th, that is so close and we have so much to do!!!! Deep breaths!

***I am grateful for
1) Emery has flipped
2) fluid levels good!
3) Emery is measuring well!!
4) baby shower is Saturday (can't wait)!
5) in less than 6 weeks, our family will be complete!
