Tick, tock....

39 weeks today and hanging in there. I am still working which is proving to be not so much fun. I am trying to stick with it as long as possible because the more I work now the more time Ill have with the baby afterward. There hasn't been too much progress on my weekly OB visits. I'm now a whopping "1.5cm" dilated and 10% effaced, Im beginning to think Dr. Deprez made these numbers up just to make me feel better. On a positive note everything seems to be fine with the baby and my health, I am thankful for that of course!

I asked my doctor the million dollar question during my appointment this week. I told him that I would just love to have a baby home for Christmas and wondered what he might be able to do about that. Since I am due 12/15 he said he would consider inducing me as early as 12/20 or 12/21. I'm hoping it doesn't come to this because I have heard that labor is harder when you are induced but at least it's a possibility.

Symptom-wise I am having lots of strong Braxton-Hicks contractions but nothing regular or painful indicating true labor. I am very tired, achey, distracted and feel just plain HUGE. I guess at least I'm still standing!

Maybe the next time I update it will be about having our baby girl!?!?!
