Maybe the Last Charlie Update! :)

Just a short note that our boy may be here soon!! Well, for sure in the next 12 days! I had my 37 week appointment on Thursday and much to my surprise and the doctor's I am 3 cm dilated and 80% effaced already. I also had an ultrasound and Charlie is doing wonderful, his measurements were right on for 37 weeks and they are estimating his weight at just under 7 lbs. Perfect if that weight is right (in my opinion)...but they do caution you that the further along in pregnancy you get, the more difficult it is to estimate his weight. I hope they are right!

Anyways, if Charlie doesn't make his own appearance in the next 12 days, we are scheduled to be at the hospital at 6am on Thursday, June 26 and I will be induced! Hooray!!! We can't wait to meet Charlie and introduce him to all of our family and friends. I'm actually not tired of being pregnant, I feel good...but I am a little tired of dealing with the gestational diabetes. I am so thankful though that all has worked out well for Charlie given the gestational diabetes because he has stayed perfectly healthy and as the doctor believes so far, it doesn't seem to have effected him negatively.
