37 weeks ❤ 0% dilated, 50% effaced.

hello ladies!!! my, my, my.. what a busy week I've had, and it's not over yet! lol

yesterday, 10/02/14, we had maternity photos. today, 10/03/14, was our OB appointment. tomorrow, 10/04/14, is my MUCH anticipated BABY SHOWER!!!

today's OB appt.: as my subject said.. I'm not dilated any, but I am 50% effaced.. which is better than nothing! I wanted him to stay in at least 38 weeks anyway for one last paycheck lol, BUT 40 would be even better.. I'm in no rush. as anxious as I am to meet him, I feel like I can't be "too prepared" for him.. so I'll just use these last few weeks (hopefully) to finish up shopping for whatever we don't get from the baby shower!

I'll be uploading my 37-week baby bump pic soon! as always, I thank each and every single one of you who has prayed for us, thought of us, etc. we are considered full term today, and I can't express how thankful I am for this miracle.. my fiancé & I are beyond excited, and I can't wait to see my sweet, sweet boy's face soon.. love you all!!! ❤ (((:

@OctoberBaby5: ALWAYS busy, hence why I never responded back on this post lol! - my car should be fixed my tomorrow or Tuesday I hope.. thank God! so anxious to put my carseat in & the stroller in the trunk!! ((:

@oct22babygirl: these last few weeks are definitely busy.. I could have never imagined I'd actually have the energy for it, but I've been doing pretty good! starting to get a little tired now though.. lol

@yadib04: thank you! & Amen!! almost there.. 37w2d.. I don't realize how close I am until someone says, "you're due the 24th right? doubt that.." & I always respond, "I can make it.. I have like.. wait.. okay maybe I won't make it.." lol!

@OctoberBaby5: tomorrow might be a good idea!!! lol & the baby shower was amazing.. I couldn't have asked for better! lots of people didn't show up, but all I honestly cared about was the experience.. and my mama & the other 3 hostesses made it the best experience ever. I'm so thankful! ((:

@Jessbabygirl1: thank you very much, and congrats to you too!! ((:
