Still waiting....38 weeks and 2 days. Jared was really hoping the little one would show up yesterday on the 17th since his birthday is June 17th and mine is August 17th. Cheesey I know...but we thought it might be kinda cool. I still feel great although I'm much larger now!
Wed at the doctor appointment he said I was still dilated to a 2 and my cervix was super soft. Which he translated to mean she could show up any day and we are super ready. He also could still touch her head so she's down nice and low. Which everyone around me has been noting already. I can tell she's lower too. I seriously can breathe better now and I feel like my stomach lays on my legs now when I'm sitting down. So come one little one!
Thanks to all my friends who have offered up suggestions on how to get the labor started! Funny...you all seem to have the same one as your top recommendation. Hahaha! So far though....it hasn't helped. But that's okay. We are both super anxious to get her here but at the same time we think it's kinda cool to see what day she wants to meet the world. This morning Jared kissed me and then my belly on his way out of the bedroom and pep talked her about this weekend being a great time. Jared's grandmother's birthday is Sunday and he would really like it if she chose that day. And....our friend Taylor has picked Sunday as her "arrival day". Although if Taylor is right, we'll never hear the end of it!! LOL
I have an appt scheduled for Wed and I'll be 39 weeks. My doctor told us to pick a day to induce and if I'm still preggo on Wed then we will help little sister out and get her here next week.
Next week!!! Yeah...we've waited for what seems like the blink of an eye and an eternity all at the same time. It's insane and amazing the whole process and it only confirms that God still loves his people and wants them to continue in this world. It's like a little promise of hope.
