Its finally time! We have waited long enough and are headed to the hospital to be induced. I am thankful for a wonderful midwife who is going to great lengths to make it as easy and natural as a process as possible. Throughout the night tonight they will give me something to soften my cervix and uterus and hopefully that will be enough to put me into labor. If I have not gone into labor by early tomorrow (Monday) morning they will slowly start me on Pitocin. It seems so strange that this is all really about to happen. I cant wait to share pics and introduce you all to baby. Please pray that everything will go smoothly and QUICK! And were off………
Last prego shot on our way out.
Cant wait to bring baby home to her bed!

Has passed me by. You gear up 9 months for one day and then it so quickly passes you by. I have to admit…..June 21st was a rather difficult day for me. I am ready to meet this baby and feel like all those pregnancy hormones are really kicking in here at the end. Sometimes I feel like a crazy person. I know a due date really doesn’t mean anything but it is the one thing you have to hold on to all that time. So I continue to wait. I am loosing steam but trying to stay positive and full of the energy I will need when the time is right. But there is a part of me that has given up and so this is what happens:
Not my glamorous side thats for sure. And I promise I didn’t eat that whole thing. Okay here is one of me before I let it all go:
Dont think that belly can get much bigger. Almost there!!

I went to my weekly doctor’s appointment yesterday. For the past 4 weeks, I have gone to these appointments with high hopes of the doctor telling me something to the effect of, “that baby could be here any day”, or “I wouldn’t be surprised if she comes this week”, or even, “you made alot of progress since last week, your getting close” BUT I have yet to hear any of those types of comments. Four days away from her due date and still absolutely no signs whatsoever that she could be coming anytime soon. I am learning patience. And its not an easy one. I still have high hopes that my body will just go into labor all of a sudden, and she will come before I have to get induced. I will continue to hope and pray. Cause lugging this baby around is getting more and more exhausting.
On a more fun note; Josh and I used the last pictures on a roll of film that has been sitting in our Holga camera for some time. We thought it would be fun to try and get some shots of the belly. With this camera you never know what you are going to get. This is what we ended up with:
And that is a 40 week belly.
