  • Friday was my 39 week OB visit. My doctor checked my cervix for any changes, and basically, Lila isn't ready to make her appearance yet. She said my cervix is softening but still pretty thick and she could barely get a finger in the external opening of the cervix. But I guess it's been than absolutely nothing happening. Still was disappointing to hear because I am just done and ready to meet her.

    So to lift my spirits, my mom came to my house last night and took me out to dinner since DH works nights and I was hanging out by myself. Then today DH and I went shopping and I picked up some fun and cute outfits which always puts me in a good mood. After we got home, I got busy putting our little bouncer seat together as well as the swing. Everything else is set and ready, just need Lila!

    That's what's going on here. I hope to have more exciting news in the next week, but Lila is waiting for her perfect day to be born. The countdown to her due date has begun!

  • Dont worry. It may take a little longer since its your first baby. Just enjoy the quiet time while you still have it. She will be here in no time. I cant believe you are so close. Cant wait to see pics of Miss Lila!
     
Thank you Keepers!

  • You're so close! For my girls I never progressed until I was in labor and I had them pretty quick. Progression doesn't really mean anything. Everett was my longest labor and I progressed at a scary rate before labor.

  • Wow, I can't believe you are so close Wendy! I know it's hard to wait, but remember that it is better for Lila if she waits to make her appearance until she's ready. We all can't wait to meet her either!
Thank you Mark'sbabygirl!
