Baby update

Gary and I took my dad's super awesome truck to the doctor this morning as there is a TON of snow. The worst area is around our house. BIG THANKS to my dad and Trisha for watching Kai while we went! So, everything looks good. Baby's HR was 150bpm. I asked the doctor what he thought about the heart rate myth and he said that the HR depends more on my sugar levels, caffiene, rest etc. which kinda makes sense because I have been eating so many Christmas cookies:) He wasn't going to check if I was dilated but when he saw the shape of my uterus/belly when I was standing up, he said that it looked like I was ready to go:) I'm measuring 39 weeks. I'm only 1.5cm dilated but my cervix is very soft. The head has not engaged. I'm not sure that I will make it til January 2nd but I'm really hoping that I don't go into labour until at least boxing day!! He said if I go into labour, make sure I finish eating my Christmas dinner:) (When you have a C-section, you have to wait quite a while before you can eat which is going to be hard for me!).
PS Went bowling last night. I tried to do it once and I couldn't stop with the momentum and I fell on my knees. Kai LOVED it.


  1. You darn well better not have your baby before mine! I think I've got enough of a head start. (oh dear, pardon my choice of words.)

  2. Kai was VERY good last night :)
    Gary was very patient with him. What a cutie pie! :)

  3. I'm glad things are good, and that you made it there and back safely!!

    Merry Christmas, Chapman Family. We love you!
