Yesterday ended my 39th week! I can barely believe it! It is so crazy to be so close to meeting Adalyn. It's hard to wait when you don't know how long the wait will be! (Will it happen today? this afternoon? tonight? tomorrow?) Friday we had an ultrasound and appointment with the doctor. I was 2 cm and still 50%...so I'm moving in the right direction. She wanted to see me two times this week and then we scheduled an induction date for the 9th (next Tuesday!!) I had an appointment yesterday and I was still at 2 and 50%, had an unexpected ultrasound and everything was good! I'll go back again on Friday for my final appointment before the big day!!
My first baby appointment, I was given November 5th (this Friday) as my due date. After all of the craziness of thinking we lost the baby and then getting a heartbeat, they decided to move my due date back to November 9th (Tuesday). The doctor has been using the 9th as my due date to be conservative, but in the back of my head I've had the 5th has my "finish line". (I know in the scheme of life, there really isn't much difference in those dates, but when you're waiting by the minute for something to happen, there's a huge difference!) So the fact that we scheduled the induction on the 9th, will give us a few days past what I believe is my due date. I'm really hoping to go into labor naturally before the 9th! But at least we do have an actual date to count down to... and it's less than a week away!!!
Here is my belly picture from yesterday! If we get to the 40 week picture, I'll probably be half asleep since we are scheduled to be at the hospital at 6am that morning! :)
