40.5

I said hello and goodbye to my due date, baby girl is still cooking.  We were really conflicted on whether or not to induce this past week. The doctor said my body wasn't quite ready and that if I induced there was still the worst case scenario of having a long labor and then the potential of a c-section. We decided to be patient, and let the due date come and go. My doctor won't let me go past 41 weeks, so this week she is coming out one way or another! We are going on long walks and Fletcher gives her a daily pep talk about how it is time for her to come out. In the meantime, we are trying to enjoy the last few days just the two of us! Fletcher said she must have my personality...he said if I stayed in the same place for 9 months I wouldn't want to come out either. I'm afraid I couldn't argue with him on that one!  It is ironic how your feelings change. Last weekend I felt super nostalgic and a little bit sad about our "last weekend" with just the two of us. Then, as this weekend approached I felt frustrated about having another weekend! I know in the waiting the Lord is teaching me to let go of my plans and expectations and be flexible. So in the meantime, we are soaking up the days with just the two of us and eating lots of ice cream!

For lunch Sunday we had a picnic with one of our favorites - Taziki's Friday special. This weekend I prepared a few more things for my hospital bag. I was inspired on pinterest to make a folder to keep all the paperwork and information from the hospital organized.
I downloaded a new book on my ipad mini to read in the next few days and during the waiting at the hospital.
I do have to give a shout out to Fletcher for being super sweet amidst the waiting. I know he is ready to meet our little peanut too, but he has been so accommodating this last week. He is constantly encouraging me to rest, he insisted on shopping for some new shoes (my feet literally don't fit in any of my sandals), and he has made sure all of our recent meals have been a treat! We are both looking forward to the end of pregnancy and the beginning of the next chapter!
