My Tiny Giant

Well, we went in for our bi-weekly doctor’s visit yesterday. Gabriel weighed in at a whopping 8 lbs…although the doc thinks he’s probably closer to 7.5 lbs. Either way, he’s huge.

I’ve been miserable lately and Gabriel’s size explains a lot. I just have so much pressure in my hips & crotch that all movement is excruciating. Sleep is difficult to say the least. While the swelling is better, my feet are still very sore.

There is no way we are holding out until the actual due date of April 4th. The doc says that he’ll probably have to take Gabriel via Cesarean section within 3 weeks. I think Gabriel is going to try and bust out within one week. Shall we start a “delivery date” pool? Place your bets!
