hello there all. sorry if we've been out of touch online, but this dial up internet just isn't working all that great! anywho...
today i am 40 weeks and 1 day pregnant. i went in for a check up and everything is looking good. i haven't made any more progress since last week (1cm dialated, 75% effaced). my doctor and i talked about how long i want to go and what she's comfortable with. on monday if i haven't had the baby i'll be 41 weeks and i am scheduled for a non-stress test to make sure nadia is still getting all the nutrients she needs from my placenta. if everything looks good then we'll keep waiting for her to come on her own. if not, then i'll be induced. my doctor is willing to go to 42 weeks and if i reach 42 weeks (which i don't think i will), then i'll be induced. we're wanting nadia to come on her own time, so please be praying about that with us. leila was actually born right on the 41 week mark, so we've been here before :). i'm also really hoping/praying that my doctor is on call when i do go into labor. she is amazing and i really want her to be the one deliver the baby if at all possible. so, that's where we are with baby news right now...just waiting.
i have been really cranky this past week...i don't remember being this cranky when i was pregnant with liberty or leila. i seriously feel sorry for jonathan and the girls right now...
in apartment news, there is a place ready for us, but we are waiting for paperwork to finish coming in. they can't let us move in until they have all the necessary paperwork. please be praying that happens THIS WEEK. jonathan's mamaw comes home on sunday and we don't want to be in limbo with where we will be living. thank you!
i guess that's all for now. we'll keep you posted on baby news.
