As requested

Here is an updated belly pic for those special friends who really wanted one.
If you were wondering what an 8 month prego person looks like...here you go! (Disclaimer: I'm at my office, not the best pic...don't ask me what's up with my bangs. Weird.)
Umm....I had a Dr appt yesterday and he said the baby's head was measuring at 37 weeks and I was almost at a 1! Aghhh...for 2 reasons.
1) I am planning on having the baby in 4 1/2 weeks (37 makes it a week and a half earlier)
2) Since I'll probably still end up going on my due date...this kid is going to have a HUGE noggin'...not ideal for birthing if you ask me.

Here's to another 4 1/2 weeks, or 3 if he comes according to his head size. Probably not though. I'm not getting my hopes up.

Bennett went to the doctor this week. 6oth percentile in weight, 55th percentile in height, and 95th percentile in head size.

If your baby has any of the Rose genes that mine do, be prepared for an enormous noggin.

The cutest enormous noggin ever!

Ang, you look so good. That is exciting that he may come early. It's good that you aren't getting your hopes up though. It was so much fun hanging out with you and Mike this weekend! We are so excited to live so close to you guys!

Not likely that he will come too early though you can cross your fingers....ultrasounds are always wrong with measurements...just ask Sarah - the twins were "measuring" much larger than they cam out! You look great...I am only 20 weeks and my belly already looks that huge! Hang in there!

You look too cute! I hope I look that good when I am that far along!

Hannah said...

I still think you look awesome! The one thing I've learned about Dr's "estimates" is to pay no heed to them. When they estimate the weight of your baby, it's always within 2 lbs either way...which pretty much leaves all range of possibilities open. And, it's totally normal to be at a 1 or even a 3 for weeks and not go into labor, while some people do not dilate at all until they're in labor. Just try to ignore what they say :)

You look amazing!! Please tell me it's a lot of hard work, lots of calorie counting, exercising like a tri-athlete, and using every new beauty product on the market? - and not just good genes!!

Sharon said...

You look so cute, weird bangs and all!!!! (jk) Can't wait for little Colton to get here.

Jill said...

Radiant, radiant! You are lovely.

The doctor's predictions are like weather reports....30% chance of precipitation. What's THAT supposed to mean? It might rain, or it might not. When it comes right down to it, little Colton will have his way!

You are too cute! I wish I looked that cute ever! Do you have his room and everything ready? Hope it goes well for you. If I deliver early we could have our babies around the same time. Fun!

Angela, Just wanted you to know that I stock your blog and that you are the CUTEST pregnant women in the world! and I'm totally jelous. :o)

You are so tiny!

Tyson and Heather said...

Reading this post brought back a memory: you, calculating your GPA in high school. "If I get an 86 on the test, that will bring my overall grade to a 93.8" (those may not have been your exact words). Still, here you are calculating again! "If I go into labor at 38.5 weeks, the baby's head will be measuring 40 weeks . . . " Only this time, it's all TOTALLY out of your control.

But remember, you always got A's. And you will this time, too. On Colton's time schedule.

This makes no sense. It's late and time for bed here. Talk to you soon!

It's coming so close! I can't wait to check back one day and see a cute little pic of that baby!!

Not to depress you, but I was 90% effaced and dialted to a 2 for THREE weeks! Starting at 38 wks. my Dr. told me I would probably go into labor "any day" yeah...and day 4 weeks later when I got induced! So Its a good idea to plan on later, and if it comes soon it's a great surprise!

Jim said...

Angela your belly is so cute...I can't wait to see pictures of the little guy! (Oh and good luck with the big head thing!)

Our Family said...

You look great! You have a very small belly for being this close.

As for Dr. predictions. With Carter I had progressed nothing and the Dr. told me it would be weeks. I went into labor the next morning. (2 weeks early)

With Griffin I was a 3 and ready and the Dr. told me I'd probably go into labor that night. A week later I was really happy to finally go into labor! (1 week early)

Hey! You are so cute pregnant! Can't wait for you :) It's so nice to not be pregnant too so you can go running and not have an extra weight with you! Blurb worked fine for me, but I downloaded booksmart about 6 months ago. I know my friend Steph finally got it to work, so maybe just keep on trying? I'm sorry! They really did a good job though! I love it!
