Today, we are 39 weeks pregnant! Only 7 days away until our official due date. I had my weekly appointment this morning, where my doctor said I am about 2-3 cm dilated and we also went ahead and had my membranes stripped. Ouch! That was unpleasant. I am getting so eager for labor to start and ready to meet this little lady already! My mom just flew in from Syracuse today and is planning to stay with us to help until the end of November.  So, in conclusion to this weeks update… I’m just over here still pregnant, waiting for this little girl to make her way into our lives! Wish me luck!!
