I had my first of my weekly checkups today. I am almost 37 weeks pregnant and moving right along. Weston was able to come with me today so that was really great! He is so excited. He keeps asking me everyday when the baby will come. All in good timing, my love:)
Anyways, I am doing great. I am 1 centimeter dialated, my cervix is softening, and the baby's head is down!!! This is very exciting, but doesn't necessarily mean anything. I could still have a ways to go, so we will see! They are going to approach a scheduled induction next week or the week after-solely for the purpose of our families getting out here. Otherwise, the baby will come when he/she wants to. I really want my mom here, and I know weston wants his parents here, so if that is God's plan, then it will work out!
I am a little more uncomfortable maneuvering, but I am strolling a watermelon around. This little baby is sweet, sweet, sweet-not that I am biased:) I feel a little crampy here and there and the baby has noticeably dropped. My doctor appointment next week will be interesting. We will see if anything has changed.
Overall I still feel great. Pray for the safe and prompt arrival of our families when the time comes, and I will let you know every detail I can!!!
This baby will be here before we know it!
Rachel and Weston
