I can't believe, once again, how far along in the pregnancy I am! And a WATERMELON? No pregnant woman wants to think about her baby being the size of a watermelon, and labor... oh well.
I think this was bigger than he is, I hope. I couldn't really hold it with one hand.
So, my doctor who doesn't think I'll go past my due date now has me set up for an ultrasound at 40 weeks to check how baby is doing. After that she'll induce if he's not doing well or she'll wait until 41 weeks to induce. I don't like the sound of inducing labor, but I also don't like the sound of still being pregnant in a few weeks! So, I hope he makes an entrance soon!
This week's appointment said 2.5 cm dilated, 70% effaced, and -1, all of those things are a step in the right direction!
Last week was hard because it was my last week as a teacher for a very long time. I feel blessed to be able to stay home with him, but right now it just seems odd to not be working and not have a baby here. It's making the time go by rather slowly! I will very much miss teaching and who knows, maybe I'll go back to it someday. We'll see!
I left a wonderful school and really my dream job, they were SO sweet when I left.
