Mother's Day and 39 Weeks!

This is going to be a long post so hang with me for a bit :)

I'll start with Sunday, Mother's Day! I was hoping that I might be a mother by today, but Lexi decided she wasn't ready to make an appearance quite yet. I think your patience level takes a complete drop off in the last two weeks of pregnancy, but I have to keep in mind that she isn't ready to come out for a reason! So, we went to church Sunday morning and then went to lunch at El Camino with my grandparents, my parents, my brother and sister, and my aunt, uncle, & cousins! We had a great lunch and enjoyed spending time with 3 of the special mothers in our life. We missed my mother and father-in-law. The distance between us keeps us from getting to spend special days like this with them. We did wish her a Happy Mother's Day that morning and we hope she knows we missed her!

And here we are...I think this might be one of the ONLY pictures we have while I am pregnant!
That belly. I don't know how much bigger it can get!

Happy Mother's Day to our Mom's!!

Now for the 39 week update:

We went to the doctor yesterday for our weekly checkup. BP was great, Lexi's heartbeat was great, and no weight gain. She examined me and I am dilated to a 2. Not a lot of progress from the 1 last week, but that's to be expected. My doctor is leaving TOMORROW and won't be back until SUNDAY! Yikes! That scares me a little because she told me I could go any time. Oh well- If I do, that's ok! As long as she gets here safe and sound I don't care who gets her out. My doctor also told me that if I haven't had her by Monday, when I come in for my weekly she will check me and if I am a 3 or 4 (which she said was very likely) then we will stay and have a baby!!!! This is so exciting, yet scary at the same time. I'm having a few mixed emotions...I've been thinking the past couple of weeks that she could come anytime...but now I KNOW she will be coming very, very soon! 

Last night we decided to go out and do some fishing. I was hoping the water movement would kick things into gear, but no such luck. We didn't catch any but enjoyed a nice evening on the water. My dad didn't think it was the wisest decision to be out on a boat when I am (as he quoted it) 8.98 months pregnant. LOL! We made it home safe and sound without having to deliver little Lexi on a boat. No worries.

So now we wait...maybe she will decide to come before Monday, but if not---we are just hoping to be to a 3 or 4 by next Monday! Another week of just hanging out at home!


  1. Hang in there! You look great, she'll be here before you know it! Hope you had a great weekend.

  2. You look fabulous girly. I know exactlyyyy how you feel (I could have written this post!) We'll get through it and our little ones will be here soon enough!

  3. You are so pretty and look just like your momma! Can't wait to see what Lexi looks like and I hope she comes SOON!!!!
