36 1/2 weeks

I went for another doctor's appointment today and I am now 70% effaced and 1 cm dilated. They did an ultrasound today to see how much he weighs and to check if he is head first. He is head first and he is weighing at about 6 pounds 11 ounces! He's in the 70% for weight, which the doctor said was good. She said, though, that we will talk about next week taking him early. Since he is so big they think he'll be ready to come early. She said that it's normal to go either 2 weeks before your due date or 2 weeks after. We'll definitely be in the category of the 2 weeks before our due date. It's so exciting to think that next week we might have a date for when Aiden will be here! That is if he doesn't decide to come before then. I have been feeling fine lately. The 100 degree weather isn't helping my cankles, though! Yes, my feet are swollen and look like the marshmellow man, but I'm just glad it hasn't happened until now. Keep us in your prayers!!!
