Big baby...

Well, had an ultrasound last week--baby was approx. 9 pounds! They say there is an margin of error of a pound to a pound 1/2 either side of that. Wee hoo. My midwife's office will induce at 39 weeks, but not before. They are figuring that since Jane was basically born at 41 weeks...if this one is born around 39 weeks, it should be around the same weight as her. Next appt is weds, so really looking forward to seeing if I've made any progress since last week. I'm a little freaked out to have some 12 pound baby, but also kind of freaked out at the concept of being induced on pictocin, etc if I'm not 'ready' at all. I've been kind of feeling a few pains here and there, but it's still kind of hard to tell if it's just the big baby pushing on my stomach and stuff or if it's contractions or braxton hix or something. Was pretty uncomfortable for a good hour or so in the middle of the night last night, but it wasn't anything with a rhythm, and eventually it did go away. Lots of pressure at times... I know it was only 3 years ago, but it's kind of hard to remember exactly what it feels like. And since I checked in with Jane to be induced...didn't really have that going through labor at home thing. Apparently I had contractions and didn't really notice them!
