Doctor's Visit

I went to the Women's Center Friday at 9:30am and was hooked up to a monitor for 2 hours and 45 minutes to find out that I was having very mild contractions. I still can't feel anything. My doctor was there and told me I was 1 cm dilated, but still wants to see me Monday. Daniel specifically asked him if there was anything to worry about and Dr. Ray said "No, just be patient". He wants her to come naturally if possible, but I am hoping he will decide more on a plan Monday afternoon. I feel fine and actually spent the rest of Friday out shopping with Daniel. We thought we might just walk this baby out, but it did not work!!

This little girl is absolutely our child - she is either a planner like I am or a procrastinator like her Daddy!!

Still With Child!!

40 weeks and 2 days pregnant. I went to the doctor on Tuesday and I am still not dilated. He did a sonogram and Ainsley is about 8.1 pounds, very active, down very low and her heart rate is great. He also hooked me up to a machine to see if I was having any contractions and to see how Ainsley was moving. Again everything was just fine and dandy! I will be going to the Women's Center Friday morning to be hooked back up to another monitor and then I will go back to Dr. Ray Monday afternoon for him to check me. He said he would not let me go more than a week past my due date, which will be this Tuesday, so I guess I will find out more soon.

Thanksgiving Day 2007 - Sorry, you really can't tell much since I wore this black shirt, but she is still in there.

39 Weeks

I went back to the doctor today, but nothing has changed. I am still 75% effaced and not dilated any. He has scheduled me for another sonogram on my actual due date, Tuesday, November 20th, which he said was standard for him to do if I made it to 40 weeks. He guesstimates that Ainsley weighs about 7 pounds, but will know better from the sonogram. He wants to wait her out, so he has no plans to induce before Thanksgiving. So worst case she will be here in November, but we don't know what date! Maybe she wants to wait until Daniel and I have our 5th Anniversary on November 30th!! Just keep us in your prayers.

Baby Update

I have been going to the doctor every week now and as of Tuesday I was 75% effaced, but not dilated any. I am still working and plan to do so until Ainsley decides to show up. Dr. Ray said that I am progressing well and she is moving her way down and into the right position. I am still on schedule for a due date of November 20th and he said he does not let women go any more than a week past their due date if the baby does not come before then. I feel great other than having swollen feet by the end of the day, being a little uncomfortable all the time because of feet poking my ribs and going to bed early, but I do get plenty of bathroom breaks during the night... ha ha ha!!! I now understand when my friends have said they are tired of being pregnant.

Please add us to your prayers that we will have a safe, easy delivery and bring home a healthy baby girl.
