June 10th, 2013

Welp, today is the day! June 10th. The baby was supposed to be here today! But SURPRISE SURPRISE, no baby yet. I'm pretty sure that my body doesn't know how to go into labor on it's own. So, what does a 40 week pregnant lady look like you ask? Let me show you:
Pretty darn BIG!
I've gotten a lot of comments over the past few weeks of, 'WOW, you're huge, are you sure you'r not having twins?' to 'Oh you must have big babies!!!' to 'how can you even walk with that belly?' Those are always nice for a pregnant lady to hear. :) I remember when I was pregnant with Tucker I loved every minute of it. My 27 year old body was healthy and trim, and now this 34 year old body is ready to be DONE! :) It's not as fun the older you get! :) But I am happy to have a healthy baby boy in there, and can't wait to meet the little dude.
And here is my 37 week belly just for memories sake: 
(not much different!)
I did go into the Dr. today and I am still dilated to a 2, but the baby was sitting oblong in my belly which means he could be trying to rotate back up, so Dr. Brown asked me how I felt about induction, and I told him I felt great about induction, so TOMORROW is the big day! :) I can't wait. I go in the morning, start pitocin, break the water, get the epidural, and hopefully have the baby shortly after. It's a process that I've become quite familiar with. I've done it twice now the exact same way. I don't know why I expected anything different with this baby, but for the last few weeks, every day I get myself psyched that TODAY IS THE DAY! :) But no...
It's great timing, too. My mom just got into town, and will be here, my dad is in town, my mother in law is actually coming tomorrow,  I am so lucky to have tons of help and support. Hopefully in the next few days I will get some photos of the still nameless little man up here! I'm excited and ready for him to be a part of our family!
