40 week update

Went to the doctor again today. We had a NST (non-stress test) done to check Finly's heartbeat. We also had an ultra sound to check fluids. Still have a soft cervix but only a fingertip dilation. After talking with our doctor we've decided to not do the induction on Sunday. If we go in on Sunday to start the induction we'll have a 50/50 chance of a c-section. If we wait, I can go on my own, or the longer we wait the more I can dilate on my own and decrease the chance of a c-section. With waiting our odd are 20/80 for a c-section, I like those odds much better! So the plan now is, we would go in on Thursday at 7pm, and would have the baby on Friday, February 6th. The 6th is also Michael's grandmother's 91st Birthday!

So...we wait!

39 week update

We had another appointment today and Finly's in no rush. Cervix is a little softer, but nothing really. We talked about induction being on February 2nd if Finly doesn't come on his/her own. I hope it doesn't come to that, I'd prefer to go on my own.

Next appointment is on the 29th.

38 week update

Finly still thinks it's too cold to come out! No progress what so ever! :) The doctor will let me go as late as 41w4d, so that means Finly will be here no later than February 6th! He did say that things can change at any moment, but right now, Finly is very snug in there. With it being -25 outside, I'd stay where it's nice and warm as well.

Baby Shower or Snow Shower???

We had our "friends" shower on Saturday, January 10th. Due to the lovely weather we had several people called and canceled that am. I was still impressed with how many of you ladies ventured out into the storm to attend my shower. You're so sweet! I had a great time, and Finly's closet and room is pretty well stocked. :) We got a little late start to the shower due to some late arrivals, but overall I think everyone had a good time. It was nice to see all of you and some of you I haven't seen it what felt like forever.

Thank you again for everything!

37 week update

Finly seems to like it in there. Still no progress. Up high, no dialation...nothing! I did lose 3lbs, but the doctor didn't seem concerned about it at all. How I lost 3lbs around the holiday's, I have no idea! I did start to pack my bag, I should have it finished this weekend. They say that dogs can smell tornado's, I wonder if they can sense labor? hmmm....I'll have to see if the girls start to act differently.
