We saw the doctor today, and there's still no progress. Since I'm overdue, they also wanted to do an ultrasound to check on his size. The great news is, he is healthy and is weighing in at about 8lbs so far. But, it seems that there's not as much fluid as they'd like to see, so I'll go back on Friday for them to check it again.
If I don't go into labor before Sunday night, we've got orders to go ahead and check into the hospital to begin the induction process on Sunday night.
Its kind of a relief to have a plan in place. I just hope the meds they give me for induction do the trick and things progress quickly!
I hope my next post is pictures of my son :)

We went back to the doctor today and still no progress. I know, I know, it isn't even technically time for Rigby to be born yet, but really, 0cm again?!?! Well, we scheduled another appointment for next Friday 11/5 and if he's not here by then, they'll schedule to induce probably the following week...let's all hope he comes before then, k?

One frustrating thing is that I've left my wonderful job. That's right, last Tuesday was my last day at Greenville Literacy Association so now I'm home waiting. Its funny, but I feel kinda guilty being home especially when Rigby is showing no signs of coming out soon...I feel like I should still be working. Chad is so sweet, though, because he just says my job now is to relax and be pregnant. I miss my job already but know I've got a greater job...the job of my life, just ahead with more blessings and rewards than anything else I could ever do. I'm just thankful I'll be able to focus on that full time.

Here, you can really only see his head (big white circle from bottom right to to top middle). In the left of the shot, is his hand. When they took this picture, it looked like he was making a sucking motion, but because he's so big and things are so scrunched up, we couldn't tell if he was sucking his thumb or not...but his hand is in the right place, so we might have a thumb sucker!
We could also see his little body and how it was contracting as he was practicing breathing. He's so cute! I can't wait to see him face to face!
I've put in my notice at work...so, yes, on October 20th, I'll officially be a stay at home mom. Yikes! I hear it is wonderful, though, so as scared as I might be, I know it'll be worth it.

My entire family got together (Mom and Dad Hucks, Terry, Kendra, Rachel, & Will Lowder, Adam, Leah, Isabella, & Elissa Hucks, and Chad, Allison, & Rigby Nicholson) for another beach vacation in Murrells Inlet, SC. The following pictures are from our visit to Huntington Beach State Park. We went for some ghost story telling, alligator sightings and a picnic first! In the last picture of Will and Elissa, you can just barely make out the alligator in the background!

I had a doctor's appointment the other day and the doctor gave me an A+ for my stomach measurement and Rigby's heartbeat sounded great! I was tested for gestational diabetes and thankfully am all clear there. Also, (without giving numbers) my weight gain has been right on track! hooray!!!
Chad and I took a couple of classes this past weekend and he was too cute. He was so interested in everything and asked so many questions. He's going to be a great partner and coach :) We can't wait to meet little Rigby!
So, we've been busy over the last few months and because I've been so slack, I've not posted any pictures of all the fun stuff we've done! So, here goes!

These are some videos Chad took at our 19 week appointment. If you look carefully, you can see the 4 chambers of Rigby's heart beating.
Here you can see him opening and closing his mouth again...just like the 12 weeks video...does that mean we've got a chatty baby or a sleepy baby??? hmmm... Also, check out how he's wiggling around in there. It almost looks like he's trying to do a somersault!

But, this little banana picture here, represents Rigby's length from head to heel at this exciting half way point. He's weighing in at about 11oz now, and growing right along schedule. So, needless to say, this banana...I adore :)

It's a BOY!!!
For those of you who aren't as knowledgeable about ultrasounds as others...look at the nub in the middle...that's the obvious boy part :) and the nub on top is his left thigh. Imagine he's sitting on the 'camera.' You can only see his little bottom. It's interesting to look at the poll results too! So many people were so sure it'd be a girl! I figured...since all my college girls have girls...someone had to add a boy to the mix!

We'll see Mimi and Poppy tomorrow night and then Grammy? ;) and Grandpa on Thursday morning. We can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then, I joined him to begin the staining process and by Sunday, we had a finished bookcase the same color as our nursery furniture...that fit perfectly in the spot we wanted it to!
Isn't is beautiful? I am so proud of my sweet husband...already a great daddy :)

We go to the doctor tomorrow to hopefully find out if our little tomato is a boy or girl! It looks like our blog readers are saying that its a girl! Well, we'll all know pretty soon! That is, as long as baby cooperates with us!
I'll have to apologize ahead of time for not posting the news immediately, but we hope to surprise the grandparents when we see them on Wednesday and Thursday, so we'll wait to go public til after that.
I hope to post more pictures soon!

I'm most comfortable in maternity pants now, but have to say that I still can't get use to maternity tops. They are just too blousey for me now, but I know it won't be long before I begin to love them.
Just 1 and a half more weeks til we know if we're having a boy or a girl! Can't wait!!!
...pretty funny I thought...

Dr. LaBelle also measured my stomach, and it measured exactly 16 weeks...so everything is right on track!
I know some of you might be anxious for some belly pics, and I'm sorry to tell you that you won't get them in this post...Honestly, I keep forgetting to take them! You see, until pretty recently, you couldn't really see anything, so it didn't seem like there was anything to take a picture of! But, I've got a little belly now, and elastic has become my friend :) I'll be sure to start taking some pictures and post them as soon as I can!
In other baby news...we bought a crib! We'll get to pick it up in Atlanta during our next trip...which just so happens to be to a HARRY CONNICK JR. CONCERT!!!!!!! We're shifting furniture around, starting to clean out all of our junk from the nursery, and trying to get organized...what do you think? nesting!?! :)
Okay, now that you've seen the ultrasounds, know the hear rate, as well as belly measurements, vote! What do you think? Will we have a Chad or Allison Jr.???? You've only got 3 weeks, so vote now!!!
