Little Jack Isn't So Little

We had an exciting doctor’s appointment yesterday! I went for an ultra sound to check Jack’s growth and to our surprise he is estimated to weigh 8lbs. 11oz. right now. I think I’m still a little shocked, but if you’ve seen me you’re probably not too surprised.

It’s still a little too early for an induction because my doctor won’t induce till you’re at least 2 centimeters dilated and I’m not. She wanted us to go ahead and schedule a c-section for the end of next week, but that puts me at 38 ½ weeks and the doctors that are on call may not feel comfortable scheduling a c-section till you are 39 weeks. So the scheduling center is going to get back to us to see if next Friday or Saturday will work. The other option is waiting till I’m 39 weeks for a c-section, but that falls on Christmas Day and the hospital won’t schedule c-sections for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, so we would go for a day or two after Christmas. For right now we are in a waiting period, because it’s too early to do anything, but while we wait Jack continues to grow. The doctor said for me to be very active between now and Tuesday, when I go back, to try to get Jack to come on his own, so today Freddy and I are going to finish up Christmas shopping, go eat lunch, and do a lot of walking (if I don’t get too tired!). We’ll post as soon as we know what our plans are. It’s going to be an exciting week and a half at the Wyatt house. We can’t believe we’ll be meeting our little boy really soon.

For those of you who want to know if you still have a chance at the free Starbucks, were looking at a possible scheduled birth on the 22nd, 23rd, 26th, or 27th. However, if Jack comes on his own you still have a chance if you guessed anytime between now and the 27th!

We are soooo excited for you! What a fantastic Christmas gift . . . I bet being pregnant this Christmas has really made you look at Christ's birth in a whole new light! Riley was 8lbs 9oz, but that was three+ days after my due date! We are still planning a trip through L-ville on the 22nd. It would be so great to glimpse Jack then! By the way, that's my mom's b-day . . .

how exciting!
just think, in a year he will possibly have grown from a newborn into a little person. the time passes so quickly.

i'll be praying for you guys! my daughter's delivery was induced so we could be sure my husband could be there (long story, but he had to go away for a few weeks right after her due date due to training for a job that has ultimately given us more time together as a family). there was something comforting about knowing that if she didn't come before then, we knew when we would meet her.

congratulations on becoming parents! little jack is blessed, and you must be so excited!
