Week 37

So, it seems like we know how this whole thing is going to play out now. After today's appointment with the doctor, we know for sure that Anette will need to go through a cesarean section operation. Although Benjamin was in the proper head-down position a few weeks back, he has somersaulted back into a sitting position.

We are happy to have a plan now. Ben will be born on Monday morning, May 20 (as long as he doesn't try to push his way out first). We have gone over the birth plan with our doctor and feel very good about our decision moving forward. Apparently, Ben's head is quite large, much of his current weight at 6 lb. 10 oz., so this should be more comfortable for everyone. 

We are very excited to have a more definitive end to the first part of this adventure, as we welcome our baby boy into the world. We have a drawer full of his clothes for the first three months, cupboards full of diapers, have studied numerous YouTube videos on swaddling and changing diapers, and have put together much of his furniture that we will need immediately. As much as brand new parents can be ready, I believe we are. Bring it on!
