I went in this morning for my 35 week appt...even though tomorrow I am 36 weeks...but he jumped another 4 centimeters in the last 2 weeks! So he measures 46 weeks, whereas I am only 36 weeks......see why I think he's so big?? Well, Dr. Deed agrees and so we scheduled a c-section for Thursday, August 9th. That's ONLY 2 weeks from tomorrow! Brandon and I are SO excited and can't wait to meet our little (big) boy. I am just about done with the nursery, so I promise I will post pics when it's finished, hopefully this weekend!

Lots of people have been asking for updates from the doctor's appointment on Wednesday b/c as you can see from the pictures, it looks like I could deliver at any moment and from the size of my belly you might guess it would be twins. Let me assure you, it's only one boy in there, he's just trying to set some kind of record and taking my body along for the ride! I have been measuring ahead since the beginning...3 weeks ago I was to 6 centimeters ahead and I thought that was pretty big. Then yesterday she says he is measuring 9 centimeters ahead and it's all baby, she can feel him from top to bottom and side to side. So for sure we're looking at a scheduled c-section. Dr. Deed said we don't electively take babies before 38 weeks, so we'll measure him Aug 8 and go from there. I have a feeling by the 15th Ethan will be with us on the outside. So keep us in your prayers as we approach the home stretch.
We had our last 2 showers last weekend for baby Ethan. The top 2 pics are from our church shower, and the bottom 2 are from our shower at my mom's best friend's house. I didn't take very many pictures...but we were overwhelmed by all the goodies we got and this baby is already being spoiled! Thanks to all who came, hosted, and sent gifts......such a special time!
