Update On Baby Chili Pepper - 39 Weeks And 3 Days

Happy Monday...

Here is today's update. We are at 39 weeks and 3 days. Today's doctor's appointment was pretty quick. My weight was good. My blood pressure was good. Chili Pepper's heart beat is as strong as ever. She is measuring at 38 / 39 weeks and is guesstimated to be at about 7 lbs. Still in the head down position and waiting until she is ready to make her grand entrance. All is good news!

Today's doctor was the last one in the practice for me to meet with and discuss our HypnoBirthing preferences. She is on-board with everything, just as the other three doctors are. We also recently had a tour of the hospital and made some good contacts with the, we shouldn't have too much trouble making sure that our preferences are met there as well. I also made a mental note that the night shift staff likes donuts and the day shift staff prefers bagels and cream cheese. It is always an added bonus to have the nursing staff on your side!

Today's exam revealed that I am at 2 cm open and about 50% thinned. Have only changed 1/2 a cm since last Miss Chili Pepper seems to be waiting until after Halloween when her Papa Ron arrives. I still feel that she will either wait for her "due date" which is the 2nd or go until the 5th or 6th. We have another appointment scheduled for next Monday, but there is a 50 / 50 percent chance that we won't need that appointment. Who knows what will happen between now and next Monday...but we will make sure to let you all know...

Tonight, we have an appointment scheduled for some family photos. Want to make sure that we have a lasting record of my huge belly, as well as make sure that Chili Pepper knows how much the three of us have been anticipating her birth. Will be sure to share the photos with you all once we receive them...

Have a great day!

Love to you all,

Kara & Miss Chili Pepper
