40 weeks and 4 days....

and Olivia is officially getting her eviction notice.-haha! I went to the Dr. this morning and (don't read if details make you squirm-ha!) bag of water is bulging. The Dr. went ahead and did a sweep of my membranes (too bad you can't get an epidural for that...YIKES!), to hopefully set things in motion, but if she isn't here by Friday morning, we go in for an induction! I have been feeling yucky, having back pain and contractions since the appt., though, so I would not be surprised if she comes before Friday. I hope so!! And, of course, if I change my mind, I can always cancel the induction and hold out a few more days, but that isn't happening!-haha!

And, of course, Scott's first comment was....'go home now and put a towel down in the car in case your water breaks!' hahaha! I am going to sit in his recliner all day long and hope it breaks on there!

Anyways, send some prayers and good thoughts our way! We would greatly appreciate it. I am not really nervous, just hoping and praying that it all goes better than last time. I don't really care as long as the outcome is a healthy baby and mom, but I can't help but be a little scared. I think that is normal for all women that are about to give birth, though-haha!

I think that you'll have her by tomorrow if you have been having contractions since your appointment. That's how it was with both of mine. Good luck! I'll be thinking and praying for you.

We have been thinking of you and checking the blog daily just to see your progress. We are wishing you all the best and sending our love. Praying for a quick, easy, and healthy delivery for you and Olivia also! Give Abby kisses from Chelsey!

About Me

Welcome to our life! :) Our life seems to be a constant 3 ring circus these days, but we have a lot of fun, laugh a lot and enjoy every minute of it (okay...almost every minute-haha!) Scott and I have been married for almost 9 years, and we are the parents of 2 amazing daughters, and another little one on the way. This blog is a way to keep in touch with family and friends. It also serves as a 'year book' of sorts for our family. Enjoy!!
