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!

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!
