Baby Sutherland's Room.. All it needs is A Baby Boy

Barkley the Big Brother
The room is not all the way finished! We need to re-hang the picture above the dresser and we are in the process of making a sign with Baby Sutherland's name! It will be posted at a later date! Please note that we will not be using the bumper pads once he is sleeping in the crib!

A Weekend full of Showering!

Last weekend we traveled back to Troy for two baby showers that our family hosted! It was an amazing time and Baby Sutherland is blessed to have so many people care about him and he hasn't even entered the world! We were blessed with many amazing gifts and we know that we will get good use out of all of them! We are counting down the days until he arrives.

They were really into the game!

36 weeks... Only 3 more weeks to go??

Baby Sutherland is now 36 weeks and is the size of a crenshaw melon. Our baby is almost 6 pounds and still packing on the pounds at a rate of about an ounce a day, is comparable to a crenshaw melon in size. (Length: more than 18 1/2 inches, head to heel.)

We had our 36 week appointment and Baby Sutherland is still breech and the doctor does not think he will being flipping anytime soon. So we went ahead and scheduled a C/S for the 16th of November at 10:00 am. That means we are now down to less then 20 days before our sweet baby will be in our arms. Not excited that he has to come out by a C/S but God has a plan and all that matters is he is healthy.

Baby Sutherland's 35 week Update

Today Jared and I went to the doctor for a check up and ultrasound! The doctor's appointment went great and his heartbeat was 140 beats per minute, measuring in at 35 and 1/2 and I was dilated to 4 cm. This was a complete shock to the doctor and us as well. Next up was our ultrasound and as we had thought Baby Sutherland is still breech. His head and feet are both up! He is weighing in at 5 lbs 6 oz- give or take a lb. This puts in him the 33rd percentile.

Below is a picture of the position that Baby Sutherland is currently hanging out in.

35 Weeks Down and 5 weeks to go!!

Baby Sutherland weighs as much as a honeydew melon. Our baby, now as hefty as a honeydew melon at 5 1/4 pounds, doesn't have much room to maneuver in my belly. Lets hope that he finds the room to do a little flip!

we have an ultrasound tomorrow! Can't wait to see our little guy! Jared and I are making bets on how much he weighs! I know that I am going to win! :)

Baby Sutherland Week 33 update

Yesterday marked that start of weekly appointments. At our prior appointment doctor felt around and was sure that our baby still had not flipped. Well yesterday she measured my belly, checked his heartbeat, 150 beats per minute and felt around to see if he was still head up.. Well, from what she could tell he is still in the breech position. We have another appointment next week and we will get to see our sweet baby on an ultrasound. We are very excited to see him again but hope that he has flipped!

Different breech positions..

Please pray that our little guy decides to flip into position soon.

33 weeks....but who is really counting....

Baby Sutherland weighs as much as a pineapple. Our baby is proportioned like a pineapple when it comes to weight -- a little over 4 pounds. (Length: more than 17 inches, head to heel.)

We took some fun pictures last night with an amazing photographer. We had so much fun and love the pictures she took. Be sure to check out her website http://www.sweetpicklepictures.com/
