7 Days Left...Or Not!

I had another appointment today and we were very excited to see where I am. So, I am now 5-6 cm and only 25% effaced. She said everything is looking good but since I am not 38 weeks quite yet she would not feel comfortable inducing me until next week but if my water breaks that is ok and we are good to go. I am trying not to go into labor tomorrow because we don't really want an April Fool's Day baby. Jeremy's theory is that at this rate I will be about 9 cm next Tuesday and it should be a quick delivery. I am now thinking if I can go without any drugs, but I do love drugs during delivery. We will keep everyone posted. Keep praying for us!

    If you get induced and don't use any drugs, I will be impressed. I did that with Lucas and MAN it sucked! A true accomplishment indeed! Good luck!! :) We are thinking of you and praying for you!

Baby Fisk Update

Yesterday I had an ultrasound and then today I met with my doctor. The ultrasound showed the baby is still a girl and very healthy with long legs. The technician said she could see some hair and that she was measuring about 6lbs 14oz. I got some great pictures of her face and a foot. Her hands were mostly in front of her face so we could only see a side profile. The best news was that she is head down and is probably too big to turn. I still don't feel or look that big and the technician said it is all baby in this belly. So yesterday was very productive.

Today I went to my regular visit. She measured the belly and said everything looked great. Then she checked my cervix and I am already 3 centimeters! Jeremy and I were very excited to hear this. She said we are right on track for April 7th or we could end up going early. I still haven't packed my bag but I plan on doing that tonight. Baby Fisk number 2 could be here earlier then we think!

(I found this picture from a couple months ago.)
