Well, I am 38 weeks pregnant as of today. I went in for my weekly check-up at the doctor's office today and he confirmed what I was already pretty sure of: this baby girl is not about to shoot out of me anytime in the immediate future. I'm not dialated at all, not having any contractions, etc. etc. I am having some lovely lower back pain accompanied by some Braxton Hicks contractions, but that's about it. Just thought I'd let all of you wonderful people eagerly waiting out there that you'll have to keep waiting a little longer. The doctor said we wouldn't even really talk about inducing until a week after my due date (August 30th), so I'm just sitting tight (very tight!) until then.
Speaking of this baby girl coming out, if you'd like to be able to see pictures of her when she's here and you haven't already given me your e-mail address, please do so so I can invite you to our private family blog. (See the posts below for details.) Thanks!
