W I N N E R ! ! ! ! (and baby update....)

I was not even a little bit surprised that the winner of last week's contest was who she was. And sorry, Tessie it's not you. But thanks for wishing like, an 11lb baby on me.

The winner actually is my good blogging friend Misty, who consistently is on the same wavelength as I am. Not only was she 100% on with the size and cm, but she left her comment within minutes of the ultrasound tech giving us the results. Crazy, right?

So, I will have 2 prizes in the mail this week. (Sorry for my tardiness, Sarah)

Aaaaanyhooo, what were the results?? As of Friday, baby weighed in at 7lbs 14ounces and I am 1.5 cm. Of course after what I ate this weekend, she could very well weigh 10lbs by now. The doctor has changed her tune to you've proved that you can birth a big baby, so let's wait til 39-weeks. Um, whatever.

LoriD wanted to know how I felt about that, and part of me is disappointed. BUT! If we were going at 38 weeks, that would mean 1 week until baby time. Yeah, I can't have a baby in a week!!! I need at least 2!! I need like 5 more!!! Ok, not really, but when it creeps up on you, it is a bit scary.

Sadly, sitting home all day is not giving me much blog fodder. I do have a meme to do, so maybe I'll get to that tonight. For now, I am folding 986 burp cloths and 347 bibs. Send help and booze. kthanksbai!

Congrats, Misty!

"Send help and booze." I love you. Hang in there. And just remember that Tessie gets to play the divorce card. Do I get a card, too, then?

I suddenly feel like "how did we get to just a couple of weeks?" wasn't it just like, last week that we still had 20 weeks to go??

Man, I wish I knew how big mine is right now!

This whole pregnancy thing--it flies by, but also it drags. And I'm not even the pregnant one.

Congrats, Misty! I wasn't too far off. Well, 2 more weeks sounds good. Plenty of time to get some things ready, yet close enough to be really excited about.

Dude, I swear I am going to win something one day.

I totally get what you mean about wanting it to be over yet not being ready. Are you going to live Twitter birth too?
