but my to-do list is sooo long! i definitely shouldn't be blogging, but i wanted to get one in before tomorrow. when we went to the dr on 7-23 for my 39th week check up (i was at 39 weeks, 1 day) the baby is measuring 8 pounds 14 ounces (give or take a pound) so if she doesn't come on her own by tomorrow (7-26) at my dr appointment at 3:15 then i will be induced at 6pm at one of the hospitals in the big city.
i'd rather not be induced but she must come now because she is getting so big! i'm not very worried, d was 9 pounds 6 ounces when he was born and he came vaginally from my tiny older sister. kait and i got to watch d be born, i think we are very lucky to be able to experience child birth in such a close capacity. you know those 20 year old videos they showed you in health class do not do anything any justice.
in a related manner, i've named this blog 'margotsmom' but we're actually not naming the baby margot anymore! drew and i decided it is still a lovely name but we don't love it and i really wanted an irish name (drew's family is irish and i picked the middle name, louise, to honor my grandmother) so we have it narrowed down to:
teagan riley louise (g-last name)
meghan louise (g-last name)
i like both but i really love meghan. we decided to wait to see the baby to decide between the two names.
last fall, drew had 3 cousins in his uncle's family all give birth within 6 weeks of each other, 1 boy and 2 girls. the girls were born with red hair-like drew's paternal grandmother who passed away a few years ago. i would love to have babies with red hair and freckles, i think it is so adorable.
time to finish my to do list before our trip to the hospital!
