40 weeks 3 days....ugh

Yep, I'm still here. Gladly I will be done in 2 days although I am really anticipating my body going into labor. Surely it knows it is supposed to now, right? I have an appt tomorrow and will fill out paperwork for my c-section on Thursday. I'm eating myself out of house and home here too, lol. And yes, I feel as nasty as I look in this picture.
Any guesses on how much this little guy will weigh and how long he will be? He doesn't feel as big as Chandler, but you never know. My personal guess - 8 lbs 4 oz & 21" long. (To help you guess, Chandler was 9 lbs 1 oz, & 22" long, born at 40 weeks 6 days.)
On a funny sidenote, they like to try to schedule c-sections on Tuesday & Thursdays, or so Dr. Barton told me. If Rowan would have been born on Tuesday or Thursday in the next 2 weeks, he would have been born on someone's birthday. Natalie (my SIL's) birthday is today - Happy Birthday Nat!, Ashley's (SIL) is on the 17th and will probably have to share her birthday, Claire (niece) is on the 22nd, & my sister Avry's is on the 24th. What are the chances?
I'll update after my appt tomorrow and probably won't update again until next Sunday or so (depending on when we come home from the hospital)

I like how the ticker starting counting up in days now. Shouldn't it say negative numbers? I kept checking back about every 5 minutes to see if you've had him yet. So I guess by the time you post next there will be a little baby picture!

ok, sad to say, but you didn't look bad today at the store. You actually looked great, not what I was expecting, not to say I was dissapointed either. Seems like big K-Mart is our hangout.

I'm betting 8 lbs 7 oz and 21.5 inches long. You've definitely earned it.
