Update

Well we had our appointment this morning and I'm very disappointed to report that I have still not progressed at all. The ultrasound was also a little disappointing because I couldn't tell anything from anything! He's so big and squished up in there that all I could tell was his head, but no little profile pics or anything to show. I was so confused the whole time. The good news is the ultrasound and nonstress test showed that Charlie is healthy and doing well. I just haven't progressed and so the doctor said it was still too early to even induce.

So I have another appointment scheduled for Monday April 7th. April 7th. I cried when the receptionist wrote out the appointment card for me. I am supposed to have had a baby by then!!!! Anyway, I'm hanging on to the fact that he will definitely be here within 2 weeks, as my doctor will not let me go past 42 weeks, even if I still haven't progressed. He is healthy, and I am trying to enjoy every minute of being pregnant with him. Thank you to those of you who have told me you are praying for me, I really really appreciate it. I'm trying to be patient, but sometimes feel a little like I am going crazy.

I am thankful that we didn't have to make a decision about inducing today because I just didn't know what I wanted to do... or what I should do. I really wanted the doctor to either tell me we had to induce or that we had to wait. So here we are... waiting.

Hang in there, sister. I know it feels like he will never be here, but rest easy in the fact that you will be holding him with two weeks.
I am praying for him to come in God's perfect timing and asking all my friends to do the same. And even though you haven't progressed, I am keeping our suitcases pack in the car... just in case.
