Mommy's Favorite Things: 40 Weeks!

40 Weeks!

I have actually made it this far. I never thought I would. Since Avery came 7 days early I assumed he would too. Then I wanted to avoid Christmas and now he's doing that and then some!

Today I am officially 40 weeks! I'm due today! I don't know how I feel about it. I have mixed feelings I guess. I know he'll come when he's ready, but I also just want to be done.

I found out I was pregnant 4 days before my missed period, so I've been pregnant a LONG time and I've known about it a long time now.

I have an appt today at 1:50. We'll see what happens. I will ask for a sweep and we'll go from there. I had contractions that were 4.5-6.5 minutes apart last night for about 2 hours, then I fell asleep and when I woke up at 6am all had stopped!

I know that since I see a regular OB he'll talk induction, so I'm going to set one up for Friday morning. 1. I'm due in December so I'm having my baby in December, 2. The tax return! Might sound selfish, but at that point I'll be 3 days overdue already.

So most likely he'll be here no later than Friday evening or so!!!
I hope I'm more dilated this week too... We'll see what happens!

I don't think you sound selfish about the tax return. I would feel the same way honestly. And being overdue if he stays in until Friday, I think you deserve it. Excited to see what the doctor says at your appt and I hope there's major progress so you don't need an induction

Seriously you are SO cute!!!! And my DH is an accountant and the tax benefit is the first thing he thinks about with our kids' due dates!

Those are really cute maternity jeans.Do you remember what sure you got them in?

Actually they aren't maternity jeans at all.
They're by Jolt and I LOVE that they have that roll over waistband, although they do look like maternity!
