¡¡7 MORE DAYS!!

I finally got to see my doctor this morning... YAY!! She said I'm still dilated to 2 cm & that the baby's head was in a good position. I was a little disappointed that I haven't made any progress since they last checked me, but she stripped my membranes (that was fun) so maybe that will help my body move along a little more quickly. The really good news is she scheduled me for an induction one week from today, January 5th. I was a little annoyed that I'm being induced only ONE day before my due date - Meagan, tell me you feel my pain :). However, I'm going to try & focus on the fact that I WON'T be going overdue & I'm going to be grateful for that! I gained another 4 lbs over the last 2 weeks (which puts me at 25 lbs)... Can I just say how much I am looking forward to having my body back to "normal"- It'll be great to be able to shave my legs, tie my shoes, paint my toes without feeling like I'm going to suffocate!

This big belly is DEFINITELY getting in the way :)

Yes, you should focus on the fact you at least get to have him before the due date. Going over is HORRIBLE I was 9 days late with Kiley and 6 with Landon and it sucked! I had a cool Dr with Gaige and got to have him 2 days early. Anyway, very exciting!!

Isn't at least getting an induction date the best? I was so relieved when my dr said he could induce me before my due date. Waiting is still horrible though. Especially now that Christmas is over. Good luck though! Just remember he'll be here before you know it and there will be some long nights where you will wish he could go back in your stomach! Sleep while you can....

It won't be long now. Go on a date with Anthon while it is still just the 2 of you. Enjoy

Yeah Ashleigh! I am so excited for you! I am going to miss you so much! You have to promise to bring him in after you have him!!!

I can relate to your feeling of urgency!!! I cried when my dr said they wouldn't induce me until I was a week overdue. Asher came 9 days late. Little stinker. But SOOO worth the wait and the discomfort that you're feeling right now! They're precious!
