39 weeks 1 day

Annie banannie!

Reaver was jealous so we had to take his picture too.

HUGE belly!

How appropriate.  She's a pumpkin!  Which reminds me that I still haven't bought any yet.  I usually try to find a pumpkin patch and make a day out of it but this year I might just head to grocery store.  Anyways, back to baby...

Only one week until her due date!  I have a doctors appointment tomorrow and I really hope they say I'm dilated at least a little.  I want to see some progress!  I haven't felt like myself if months with this belly so I can't wait to see it gone.  It's really inconvenient.  Plus, I really only have a few things that fit anymore.  AND I can't wait to see her!  I'm not even nervous about labor anymore.  I'm looking forward to it. I know that will most likely not be the case once it's happening, but as of now, I can't wait. 

My mom, dad and sister are coming out on the 21st and leaving on the 30th.  Then Josh's sister will be here Nov 5-12.  I hope I don't get too overwhelmed with a new baby and so many visitors so soon. 

Been having a lot of pelvic bone pain that I mentioned last week.  Yesterday was the worst by far. I felt like I could barely walk and was just waddling around very slowly.  It still hurts today, but not like yesterday.  Hopefully that means she is dropping and getting in position.  I mentioned it to a nurse last week and she was just like, "yeah, that will happen the further along you get."  So that's awesome.

Pretty sure I have everything ready for her arrival!  Just haven't scrubbed the stroller yet and I really don't want to.  I don't think we will be using it immediately though.  I tell her everyday, "Penelope, time to come out!"  I hope tomorrow we will have a better idea of how long she is going to take.  Today is Josh's prediction but less than four hours of the day left and no contractions.   I still think she is going to stay in there as long as possible.  Really don't want to be induced though.  Hoping this is my last chalkboard update, but who knows!
