a new countdown begins!

yesterday was a frustrating day! i saw my ob for my weekly checkup. we were sure that our date was 7/2--according to my last period. well, he told me yesterday that my 20 week ultrasound said 7/9 and he would rather err on the conservative side. he then told me that there was no way that i would be going to july, but he would like me to g0 as long as possible. his hope being 10-12 days. i don't know if she will last that long! i am at a 1--not too exciting, but i am completely effaced and she is at a -2 station--he said that she will not get any lower than that because she is my third. i love my dr. and am grateful that he wants the best for me, but i am feeling sooo impatient! i wish that i could just sleep for the next 2 weeks to make the time go faster!

on a more positive note--the boys are out of school for the summer. they both had a great year! i cannot believe how fast it went!!! looking back on it i think that one of the highlights of the year for me was getting involved in the pta. we don't have a lot of kids in our neighborhood so i only knew a few of the moms. joining the pta was such a great way to make the most amazing friends and to really get involved with the programs and get to know the teachers, staff, and principal. this year i was in charge of teacher appreciation! i had soooo much fun!!!!!! i really love the school and am so glad that it is where our children get to be!

It's funny, because I can't believe it is already here!!!! I know it goes so much slower for the person having the baby. But, I am sooooo excited for you! Talk to you soon.

Hang in there a bit longer. She really will come when she is ready, even if that time does not coincide with your being ready. You can do it...aim for 40 weeks then be pleasantly suprised when she comes earlier.
