3 Weeks and Counting

This week started out with a bang! Monday I woke up with a nasty sore throat and cough. I called the doctor and was told that I could take Robitussin and Halls. Tuesday, we had the nursery painted and we bought a new car!! I am now the proud owner of an 07 Honda Pilot. As Marc says, we traded the Go-cart (Saturn) for the Baby Buggy (Pilot). I love it!!

On Thursday, I had an ultrasound. The first thing we did was confirm that yes, we are having a boy. Ethan weighs 6.5 pounds and is expected to gain a half pound a week from here on out. So we are looking at having an 8 - 8.5 lb. baby if I go full term. I got to see his face and we have pictures. I don't think he was too happy with the ultrasound because he was yawning and squirming big time.

Thursday night we started putting the furniture together. One piece down, two more to go. Marc is going to do the other two pieces tonight, so tomorrow night after work, I plan on unpacking the closet and getting the room together. I can't wait to see it all put together!!

I went to the doctor this morning. No new progress. I'm still 1 cm dialted and 50% effaced. So he may not be coming early after all. The new estimated due date is October 19. She did say that he is in a good position...head WAY down. Oh, the pressure!!! At least his head isn't on my bladder anymore!
