38 long, long weeks.
I had my appointment for the week and deja vu happened in a way. I got checked and I am currently a little over 3 cm and 70-80% thinned out. Baby girls head just needs to come down more. Walk, walk, walk the doctor said. She said she does not think I will make it to my next appointment. That is crazy in so many ways. 1. I had my first baby in South Dakota, with a whole different doctor. I was 38 weeks and my doctor said if you make it, (which I don't think you will) to your next appointment we will talk induction. [I wouldn't consider it unless medically necessary anyways]. (My current Texas doctor said the same thing today). Turns out that doctor was right, I never made it to my next appointment. (If you need a OB in Rapid City I would definitely recommend Dr. Bernhard at Black Hills OB-GYN). Also, my water broke on Easter Sunday and I had my son the next day. Guess what this weekend is? Easter, so I really believe my water will break on Easter again and I might just have baby on Monday. It is crazy to believe how alike these due dates are. 

  • Both doctors didn't/don't think I would make it to the next appointment.
  • Both pregnancies 38 weeks.
  • Both Easter weekends.

I can't wait to hold her and take her home to meet her big brother.

Little guy loves watching movies. He really likes Frozen (Olaf) right now. Always addicted to all of the Toy Story's as well. 

My mom's homemade Tom Kah Gai. AH! Something I have craved for....ever. While it's settling nicely in my belly for the 3rd time in two days. Yum!
