It's October!!!

I absolutely cannot believe it is October already!!!!! Although I must admit that the weather we've been having is amazing! I LOVE fall... :-)

October has started out to be a wonderful month as the Lost Stork Foundation cookbooks for the fundraiser arrived!!!! We will hopefully have our new website up and running in the next couple of weeks and will update when that happens! :-)

October also means we are so. very. close. to meeting baby! After all these weeks and months, I can't believe baby will be here so soon! We are so excited to finally meet baby even though it seems like it's still so far off but yet it's oh so close!

This morning we had our follow up growth ultrasound check to see how baby's measuring up per the specialist ultrasound machine... Baby did not let us down one bit in hitting par for the course in staying bigger than expected!

Over all, baby is measuring in at 38 ish weeks with a weight guess of 7lb 11oz! {I'm 35w 6d today} Heart looked fantastic and beating away at 141 bpm!

I'm officially a "fingertip" dilated after being told Doc had to go "around" baby's head to find my cervix... Ouch. That's all I can say! I of course googled and read that having a posterior cervix at this stage is very normal and it will move forward as labor progresses. Baby's head is ultra low and ready to go so that's good. :-)

And here is our chipmunk {I do believe this will be our new nickname for baby}. Look at those CHEEKS!!!!!!! :-)

I was 2-3 cm dilated the last 5 weeks of pregnancy, those birthing balls are a godsend.

I can't believe you're so close!! this year has flown by.

I hope you're getting rest when you can :) That baby is going to be here before you know it!
