37 weeks and an end in sight

Yesterday made 37 weeks for our little guy, and that means he is officially full term. I am excited about that for sure. I've been here for a little over 2.5 weeks and am ready to get this show going. The doctor did a sonagram on Thursday afternoon and said everything looks great. Our little boy is doing lots of "practice breathing" which sounds strange to me. He also has plenty of fluid and everything as well. I'm getting better and better at being able to tell what I'm looking at on the sonagram. At 37 weeks, only a small part of the baby can be seen, but I've seen enough now that I'm getting it. It's nice!
In other news, the doctor has "drawn a line in the sand" (his words). His plan is to induce this week, more specifically Tuesday. I know that it could easily change to earlier or later because of the high blood pressure, so don't worry if you don't hear something because nothing may have happened yet. I'm getting excited though. Blake is getting the finishing touches done trying to have everything ready, but I'm sure he's excited too.
That's it for now!


  1. Yeah for Tuesday! And very close to James' birthday too :)
    I know you'll be happy to get home. I am looking forward to seeing pics of your little guy and hearing how things go!

  2. I am thinking and praying for you, Blake, & baby Sawyer! Everything is going to go great & I can't wait to hear the BIG News!!! Love you!!!
