Still here....Week 40

Here is my 40 week photo. Yesterday we went to the Dr for a check up. We still are at square one basically. I have slight progress but no dilation as of yet. Right now I am scheduled to induce next week. We still hope she arrives before that time. Will see I guess.



This is a gift I got last week. It is a homemade diaper bag that matches my decor perfectly. We can't wait to use it.

The car seat base is also already installed. We are just waiting to place the car seat in. I also have all my bags packed in the car. We are pretty much set for her arrival.

This week I've been off for Spring Break. It has been so nice to just relax and enjoy a week off from work. As of now, I may go back a few days next week if she hasn't arrived. The more I work on the front end the longer I can take off on the back end. My plan is around 8 weeks. I will probably go back part time for a few weeks. Will see as we near the middle to end of May.

Hopefully my next post will be a picture of our sweet baby.

This baby just isn't ready

:(

I keep thinking she has to be ready to enter the world, but she isn't even close!

At my appointment today I was the same as last week! :( Bummer! This means I haven't dilated a single drop yet! :(
I kept trying for anything and he said I might be a little more thinned. He was just saying that though because I was so bummed.

We talked about stripping membranes next week. Will see about that. He also wants to schedule an inducing date. Really just so that I don't go more than 41 weeks.

I'm disappointed but I realize she just isn't ready yet. Plus the longer she stays the healthier she'll be.

So tonight I gotta start walking some. I did for about 10 minutes last night. I guess every little bit helps right?

In the final stretch

As of tomorrow we have 14 more days till our daughters due date.

Wow, I am just in complete shock over it. I mean we are ready but still. We are about to have a B-A-B-Y!

I feel pretty darn good. In fact, I can't complain really. Two nights ago I was up from 1:45-4:45. Couldn't sleep a wink. So I got up and proceeded to finish the remaining thank you notes I had (25). So I am caught up with that. I have one I need to write today though, I got a cute gift last night so I need to get that one done also.

So no sign of baby. I have had two checkups at the Dr. with minimal progress. I have thinned out some but that is all. I go back again tomorrow. I'm really hoping I have seen a little progression. I decided tonight is the night I start walking. I gotta get this baby moving.

I have honestly loved being pregnant. I can't complain about one thing. Morning sickness was minimal, I have slept pretty darn good the entire time, I haven't felt miserable these last 4-5 weeks etc.
My only complaint is I have gained so much weight and my body is so swollen all over. My feet literally look like hobbit feet. I'm not kidding either. I'm also not exaggerating.

On our agenda tonight:
Installing the car seat in the new car.
Walking!

I am such a bad blogger

Many things to come in the next few days!

Still no baby but we are in the final countdown. I finally entered the month she is due! Woohoo. 22 more days!

I have a shower tomorrow so I'll post a few pics if I can.
My other shower got cancelled so no pics of that. :(

I also need to do another photo of my recent belly! It is getting HUGE! In fact a student said yesterday it looked like I was ready to pop! How sweet of him! :(

More to come I promise!
