36 weeks

Today I had my 36 week ultrasound and doctors appointment. Everything went well. Baby girl's heart rate was 130. I've gained 25 pounds. Her estimated weight already is 6 pounds 14 ounces! Amniotic fluid levels and everything looked good. She is now in the 78th percentile. In February (after my surgery) she was only in the 21st percentile. Then 3 weeks ago at my last ultrasound she was in the 45th percentile, so she's been growing strong. I'm already dialated 1 cm. Basically I'm due 6/28, however my doctor is on vacation that week and wants to be here when I deliver, so if I haven't gone into labor on my own, I will be induced most likely 6/20. If that's the case, only 12 more work days, I'm SOOO excited! I am on call this weekend however, so add 2 to that. We are all ready for her to be here. Everything is ready in the nursery, we've filled out all the paperwork we can think of. Eric is enjoying his time off of school, but getting everything out of the way so we can have a full 5 1/2 weeks of pure family time until he goes back and starts summer band 7/31. My folks and Bailey will be at the Frio on vacation 6/4-6/10, so they are praying she doesn't come that week. The full moon is 6/11, so we'll see! Eric's birthday is 6/13 and Bailey's is 6/21, so we have LOTS of dates in between to try to get her here :) I think we are close to picking a name, but we won't tell anyone until she is here. I said I'd never post this, but here is a picture of my big ol' belly at 36 weeks and 1 day for those who want to see. If you don't, AVERT YOUR EYES! :)
