An update

Still no baby, and we're getting very impatient.

We had the 40-week check up with the midwife today and I'm only 50% effaced and not at all dilated. But I'm 85% discouraged and frustrated.

I think she could tell how disappointed I am. She explained that most first babies are around 10 days late and that's about how much time she'd say I have to go. ...ugh!

I made hubby take me out for a giant cheeseburger and fries after that crummy news.

We've scheduled some tests for next week just to make sure the little one's doing OK in there.

She's still moving around a ton and seems to be doing fine from my perspective.

It's a hard thing to wait for your little one to get here on her own time. But wait we will because what else can we do?


  1. I was a firstborn and I was 2 1/2 weeks late and still came out 6 1/2 pounds. She'll be fine. She's just chillin' a bit longer!

  2. Oh, we just got home from the hospital and I couldn't wait to check your blog and see if there was any news! I will tell you, waking up at 4 AM to complications and having an emergency C-section on our due date was not the most fun ... so I am praying that your waiting means you can avoid that!

    I can't wait to see your little girl!


Thanks for following along with me! I love your encouragement and feedback!
