39 weeks and counting

39 weeks today!

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and was a little disappointed to find out that I'm not dilated at all.  I've heard it doesn't matter though, so hopes are still high!  Actually, it gave me some peace of mind.  I've been so anxious about labor starting!  Today, I have a lot of peace that it will start when I'm ready and if that's not for 2 more weeks, it's okay.

My doctor told me that if I don't deliver by my due date (which is next Friday), we can induce on March 15th or 22nd.  Honestly, I'd very much like to go into labor on my own.  Drew and I have decided to wait it out until the 22nd, as long as Jolie and I are still healthy and I'm not in pain.

I would so appreciate prayer about this; for peace, labor to begin naturally (and preferably soon!) and health for everyone.  Eight days until my official due date!  AHH!

You look great! If you have time to read it (if she takes her dear old sweet time) I would suggest The Birth Book by Dr. Sears. I read it a month or so before Cohen was born and took so much of the nervous/anxiousness out of the process for me!
