40 Weeks Pregnant: Ready as I'm Going to be

Sitting on the beach doing some yoga

Well, today is my expected due date, and as of eight in the morning... no baby yet. Not that I'm getting impatient :)

I took the last few days off from blogging as I made final preparations and edited the last photos on my list for the studio. Later this morning I have an appointment with my OB, and I'm going to have an ultrasound and some time with the heart rate monitor just to make sure my amniotic fluid levels are ok and the baby isn't in distress. I got nervous when they told me that this is the stage of the pregnancy when they consider recommending that I induce labor. I know it's a safe procedure, but I still hope that Lisa decides to come out before it comes to that.

I've got very little to complain about though. Throughout my pregnancy, I've had good checkups and mild symptoms. Even though I'm getting uncomfortable now, all I really want is for her to come out healthy, whenever it happens (soon would be nice though). I'll keep you updated. I've done everything I can think of to get ready for the baby to arrive. The nursery is ready. We have all the clothing and diapers we'll need for the first few weeks. Jake and I have taken our classes and read our books, and the family is on standby. If you don't hear from me in a few days, there's a good chance I'll have a little girl the next time you do. Thanks to everyone I know for all the good wishes and support I've received.
