No news is good news, right?

Well, I just got home from my doctor's appointment and it looks like I won't be having Drew before the 23rd. No luck on getting my doctor to take our little monkey early. Everything was actually still "perfect" according to the doctor. My blood pressure was 112/80, Drew's heartbeat was strong and fast, there was plenty of amniotic fluid, so on and so forth.

I was telling my doctor that I still feel like I am carrying really high. He did the sonogram and assured me that I am not, in fact, carrying high. Apparently, Drew is just REALLY long. His head is really low and his little bottom is directly under my right rib cage. Oh my - this kid is going to be a giant! Clayton was 2o inches long and he was three weeks early. So, I am sure that Drew will be even longer since he will have two weeks longer than his brother did to grow. I find myself incredibly envious of my long waisted friends. What I wouldn't give for a few more inches of torso!

That's all the news that I have to tell you faithful readers. Looks like the 23rd will be the day - no earlier for sure. Just 6 days, 15 hours, 10 minutes, and 22 seconds - but who's counting! :)

I am so thankful that everything is perfect. Maybe Andrew is just waiting for Gran, Papa D, and Aunt Becca to get to Keller.
