Wouldn't this be a great day to be born? Easiest birth date ever!
Yesterday I had a doctor's appt. They stripped my membranes....ouch. That's suppose to help bring on contractions or break my water within 48 hours. We'll see. I've been told it works for about one in seven women.
I have another doctor's appt on Friday morning along with a NST test for the baby (a stress test to make sure the baby is doing ok).
The doctor scheduled an induction for next Tuesday (9/15) if she doesn't come before then. Please pray with me that I will not need to be induced. I'm asking God to bring this baby in His timing and to start labor naturally without needing an induction.
Ryan wasn't anticipating going back to work this week after the long weekend so its been a little tough on him. He could use your prayers to stay focused at work and be productive until he gets 'the call' from me. He's beginning to think this baby will never come out!
I'm doing pretty good but my emotions tend to be a roller coaster these days. Sleeping is very difficult and I wake up Ryan a lot. I'm just trying to stay positive, be thankful and keep trusting for our sweet baby girl that "all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."
Samuel is, of course, as happy and playful as always. His smiles are as endless as his energy! I look forward to being able to crawl on the floor with him, roll around, give him baths, chase him and let him climb all over me again.
That's the May update.
