D + 7...

Good morning. Sorry to keep my loyal readers hanging last night. With the parents, grandparents, my brother and sister in town, I had a full house! Thank God they are not all staying here!! My mom made my favorite meal, Hawaiian Ham, and we just had fun catching up last night.

Well, onto the news you really want... still pregnant! Went and saw the doc yesterday. Did an ultrasound and baby is doing well. And I'm actually up 26 pounds with this pregnancy. That's good. I'm 2 cm now, and 75% effaced. We go back again on Monday if no baby has come. My grandparents aren't too happy (they've now been in Texas almost 10 days waiting for this baby), but know that babies come at their own time. Dad is taking them back up to Ft. Worth this afternoon, and Mom and Stephen (my brother) will stay until Sunday. We will have a few days alone, and if little pumpkin has not made his/her entrance, looks like I'll be induced next Wednesday (you know, we have to work around the holiday weekend and all).

Knowing all this has given me peace of mind. At least I know by this time next week I'll be holding my baby! How amazing is that! And knowing there is an end in sight makes dealing with these pregnancy discomforts more bearable. I did tell my doc that "I've been working very hard on relaxing." He seems surprised on my answer, but said I'm doing good and now I just have to watch more movies!

Thanks again for all the comments, thoughts and prayers. Looks like this daily blog may have to continue for a few more days!

Alexis, you're doing great. You're right, its inevitable, hard as it is to remember that. Keep giving it to God.--Jennifer

I hope the daily blog continues after pumpkin is born!!! I know you'll be tired and getting to know that beautiful bab, but I found that Aurora slept so much inbetween feedings (I was never very good at sleeping when she sleeps), it made it easy to upload pics and blog pretty often. No pressure, but I want to see lots of pictures!!!

LOL, bab = baby

Benjamin came 6 days after his EDD in my first induction so it was nice to know when he'd be there for sure if nothing happened on it's own. At least you'd have Dr. Love there for sure :)

The hospital we had William and Andrew at had Wifi. People with laptops could post photos online from post-partum.

How exciting to have a definite end in sight! That always helped me even though I really didn't want to induce. I would just pick a date in my head that I was not willing to go past...and then never made it there. I hope that is what happens with you. Either way, I know you will be thrilled to meet your little one! And we will too!
