The stork is flying as fast as he can!


         Everyone seems to be curious so I thought I would drop a quick post. There is definitely no baby yet, but we are hopeful. I went to the doctor yesterday and he said everything looks perfect. Good news: she is head down, her heartbeat looks great, my cervix looks great lol, I am dilated between to about a 2.5, and 80% effaced. Bad news: first babies usually come late, and this little girl is looking like she is going to be 8 or 9 lbs. So, I am learning patience (which I have never had) and so are my parents who are already here. I got my membranes stripped yesterday which was painful and so far hasn't seemed to helpful. If she hasn't come by Monday it is back to the doctor for us...

Hang in there babe. It will happen sometime! Can't wait to see that little girl of yours!

Oh Danielle, the waiting is miserable. It will all be worth it when you're holding her in your arms. It's great you're already dilated so far. I was the same way, and I had a really easy labor. Good luck! We love you.

Waiting is awful, but you can do it! We had to wait 5 days past the due date for Ethan..well more like 6 by the time he was delivered, but it'll go by too fast once it's over so enjoy getting things prepared...has your mom not drug you out for a walk yet? My mom tried that everyday! LOL...the things moms do when they want their grandbabies to get here already! Love you and take care!

Well, having had an almost 10 pound baby, I will tell you, it's doable--but not very fun!! Here's to hoping for a Valentine's Day baby for us both! I think our little girls are coordinating and they will be born the same day!! I am being induced Monday though if she hasn't come yet because that's over 41 weeks for me... Good luck!! This waiting at the end is the worst!!

Oh Dani! Your guy's patience is definitely being tested! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited for you I can't even tell ya! I haven't even gotten to see your mom and dad yet. I am glad they made it safely and that you guys can have someone to wait patiently with =) Love you and we'll be praying little baby comes soon!
