Apparently LB² has no real desire to meet his little family yet. And I’m cool with that. I guess.

I had my third weekly OB appointment this afternoon and have made no further progress in the areas of dilation or effacement. At least I went into today’s appointment without any expectations. My doctor asked me if I felt like I was already over due since I was past the date when LB was born. My OB knows me well apparently!

My OB will be heading out of town this Friday and will return the following Friday. So if I should go into labor in that time frame one of his colleagues will deliver baby g. I kind of hope it works out that my OB can actually deliver the baby. My OB last time did not deliver little buddy so I was kind of hoping it would work out this time. My friend goes to the colleague who would deliver me if my Dr. is out of town so really it’s no big deal if I have to have him. I have heard good things about him. It would be nice to have our pediatrician come check out baby g in the hospital as well. We’ll see how it plays out I guess.

We actually went ahead and scheduled a tentative induction date for March 2nd. Which is only twelve days away ya’ll. And that is if I don’t go into labor on my own before that.


Holy. Moly. 

I can’t wrap my brain around what it will be like. I’m still super excited but slightly anxious about the transition for me, for little buddy, and for our family in general. 

Please be praying that I handle the transition well. I know it’s going to be hard. I get that. Please pray that God will give me wisdom, patience(with myself!), rest, strength, and guidance. I’m going to need all the help I can get.
