Doctor's Update and Partial Weekend Recap

I went to the doctor Thursday and haven't had a chance to post since. I am at 1 cm and the doctor told me he was very low. I said that explains all the pressure I've been feeling. I don't remember this much pressure with Emma nor do I remember being this uncomfortable with her either. But regardless not too much longer. She did think he was bigger then Emma (Emma weighed 8 lbs 5 oz) so she wants to do an ultrasound when I go back this Thursday. She told me an ultrasound can be off up to 1 lb at this point. So for instance if it says he weighs 8 1/2 lbs he could weigh 9 1/2 lbs or 7 1/2 lbs. However, in saying that, she did say if the ultrasound suggested he weighed anything over 9 lbs she wanted to discuss just scheduling a c-section from the beginning. I didn't take Ben with me so I was a ball of nerves sitting there listening to her. I think she could tell so she said we'd talk about it in depth after my next appt and the ultrasound however she started going over pros and cons with me and by the time she was finished I assured her I'd do whatever she recommended. So now I'm just anxiously awaiting my appointment on Thursday where we find out what they "think" he weighs and what our next steps are. We are for sure having him November 4th unless he comes before that. Speaking of which this Thursday will more then likely be my last day of work! I'm off on Friday's anyway so that just left Monday and Tuesday and I've decided I really want to be home with Emma so that's probably what I will do. At the very least I'll work Monday but not past that. So not too much longer to go.

Now for a recap, we had a BUSY fun-filled weekend! So I'm going to break it up because I have so many pictures to share! Saturday we went to the Grand Ole Pumpkin Patch with Shannon, Blake, Harper and Henley. It was so much fun and put the Pumpkin Patch in Harpersville to shame. We will most definitely be going back to this one. Emma and Harper had so much fun and so did we. Here are some pictures from it.

My face looks huge here to me! But here is a picture of us all smiling! (Ben's might be a little forced, lol)

Going to pick out our pumpkin...

I want this one mommy!

This one is just my size and just for me.

She was having so much fun, we told her to pick 1 more (we weren't thinking when we said we wanted 3 pumpkins). So she's walking and looking for 1 more pumpkin with hands up in the air.

Having too much fun!

Emma and Harper with both of their prizes (trying to get them both to smile and look at the camera is a tough job) Here is Emma smiling and Harper not!

And here is Harper smiling and Emma not!

As you can see it was a fun day at the Pumpkin Patch and this isn't even half the pictures we took! We had a lot of fun!! I'll recap the rest of the weekend tomorrow!

Happy Monday!
