Doctor's Appointment

I had a check up yesterday and everything is still looking good. The doctor was measuring my belly when he looked at me and said "You know, I am really glad we are doing a C-Section." I just giggled and said "Oh yeah, why's that?" And he replied with eyes the size of dinner plates "Because this is going to be a BIG baby. He will easily be pushing nine pounds by the time you deliver... I can't even imagine how big he would be if we let you go the full 40 weeks!" I didn't really have a response for that, I just laughed some  more. I have gained about 40 pounds this pregnancy which is down from 80 (no, that is not a typo) pounds with Colton. I was kind of thinking this baby would be smaller but I guess I am wrong. My date is still the same for delivery.... I am just crossing my fingers my water breaks early so I can get this kid out. I am basically carrying a 10 pound bag of potatoes around on my front side.... my back would like a break!
