Appointment Today

I had a doctor's appointment today, and there's no news! Last night I started having pretty regular contractions - about every 15 minutes - and they continued all night and even now. So I thought that might be an indication that things are getting started. However, the doc did an internal exam, and she said nothing's happening in there yet. (No dilation at all.) Soooo, although the contractions are a good sign that things are happening, it could still be weeks before anything actually does. OR it could all happen at once right away. So, you just never know! We're just going to keep doing what we're doing and praying that he comes at the right time. The good news is that my belly measurement didn't give the doc any concern, and so she said it'll be fine to wait for another ultrasound until my appointment next Tuesday. So please pray that either he comes before then or that the ultrasound shows that he hasn't grown so much that the doctors are going to give us a hard time about not inducing or opting for a c-section!

Hi Mommy,

Just a note from me to you to keep you up to date.
On how my life's changing while we both await.
Please don't mind my kicks my legs and arms just need to move a bit.

I don't know what you look like yet but i already know your voice.
I like when you sing and talk to me while I'm in this place.
These nine months are so special when we are joined as one.
Please be patient, it won't be long until we are together.
Our family is growing with many special days to come.
But the most special one, the one I'm looking forward to,
Is the day you hold me in your arms.
But for now until I'm there, I just wanted you to know
