Yesterday we went to the doctor so I thought I would give you all an update.
The doctor says everything is going really well and that if I had the baby anytime, we shouldn't have any problems. Last week when we went, Benson weighed 5 pounds 10 ounces. This week he weighs 6 pounds 8 ounces. So he gained about 14 ounces in one week (as far as they can tell). So he's getting a lot bigger!
The doctor also says that he doesn't think I'll go up to my due date (September 23). he said that right now I'm dialated to a 1 and I'm 75% effaced, so if he had to guess when he'll be coming, he would guess a week before the due date.
Apparently being effaced is really good. The doctor says that especially with your first baby, being effaced is more important than being dialated. But everything looks good and Benson is super duper big and strong.
We'll keep you posted on how things are going!
