Still pregnant, making me now 9 days "overdue"! I don't take pictures after 40 weeks, for obvious reasons. Trust me, you wouldn't believe how big my belly was if you saw it! I'm now almost 41 inches around my widest point!
Edit: Here's a cell-phone-quality picture, because it was requested!
Other than being really, really ready to have a baby, I've had a better week physically, maybe because it has cooled down slightly. I was able to get outside a couple days and actually enjoy it without being oppressed by the heat! I've been sleeping well and staying hydrated as best as I can.
Tad has been so sweet and helpful this week so I've been able to rest and prepare for having the baby. He's been such a huge support to me and I'm so thankful for him!!
This morning I met with a doctor at my practice (I LOVE her) and she was so patient with me wanting labor to start on its own without being induced. Baby Punkin' passed the non-stress test and the ultrasound tests with flying colors. He is very active, his heart rate is good, and my amniotic fluid levels are fine. My blood pressure looks good too! Because he's doing so well, my doctor did not schedule an induction yet (again, so thankful for this particular doctor!). She wants me to come back on Friday if I haven't gone into labor, and we'll proceed from there.
I'm really trusting that God has a perfect time for our baby boy to be born. Keep praying for patience for all of us as we wait! Believe me, no one wants this baby to come tonight more than I do!
