Full Term, Baby.

Yesterday, I hit a monumental time in a pregnancy, the magical 37 week mark. This means that my baby is officially 'full term' and is given the go ahead by most medical professionals to come out and meet the family.

Friday I had an ultrasound to gauge where exactly Mr. Owen's growth is. Now I use the term 'exactly' loosely, because ultrasounds can be off up to a pound +/-. On Friday they estimated his weight to be around 7 lbs. He's approximately 65% in his statistics, EXCEPT for the dreaded one. His head. His head is measuring at about 41 weeks. You do the math. It's big. My doctor assured me though, that his head, while giant, is still smaller than Julian's was. So that's a relief.

As of Friday I was 1.5 cm dilated and 70% effaced (and that was before I was 'full term').

Here's a picture of the littlest Palizzi.
Scan 102880000

Oh, and looking at this picture, his head is on the right, looking right at you. He has huge cheeks, and you can even see his lips.

So here's what I want you to do. If you read my blog. Comment, and tell me WHEN you think he's going to be born. How much he will weigh. How long he will be. And last, but definitely not least, what time you think he will be born. The winner will get something fabulous. Not sure what, yet, but I assure you. Fabulous it will be.

So comment info (on the blog, not on facebook)

Obviously this contest will be over when I have the baby. Whoever is the closest will win said fabulous prize.

For the record,
Julian was born on his due date, weighed 8 lbs 2 oz, and was 20 1/4" long/tall. He was born (I think) at 6:26 pm.

Gabriel was born at 38 weeks 2 days, weighed 8 lbs 3 oz, and was 20 1/4" long/tall. He was born at (I think again) 6:38 pm.
