Baby Girl Wright is on the way!!!! I had an appointment this morning. I am dilated to a 4 and very thin. My blood pressure is a little bit high. The Dr. thinks I will probably go into labor within a few days anyway, so just to be safe, he wants to get things started so we don't have to worry about preclamsia (high blood pressure). He's also a little worried about her size. We're going to the hospital today around 1:00. We'll get things started & see what happens from there. I'll keep you all posted. We may have our little baby girl by tonight! Please keep us in your prayers!

38 weeks & counting. I'm 38 weeks today. I guess I'm gonna get to experience what it feels like to carry a baby a full pregnancy. No sign of Baby Girl Wright. We are so anxious to meet her, and she seems very content to just hang out. I still have not had any more contractions. I go back to the Dr. on Thursday, so I'll keep you posted!
We went to the park on Sunday & met some friends after church. It was so nice to see everyone. Davis had a good time playing football & playing on the playground.

I went to the Dr. today. They did a sonogram to see how big our little girl is. She is big for 37 weeks, but not "abnormally big". That makes me feel better.
Also, I am not dilated any more than last week. Still 3 cm. He did a stress test on the baby, because her movements have decreases a little, but that turned out looking good too! We may repeat it again on Friday.
So, I'm thinking, that she's going to stay in for a little while longer. I don't feel like anything is going on & I haven't had anymore contractions since I stopped the medicine. I think we've got a few more weeks. We were so worried that we wouldn't get past 36 weeks, and now we may go all the way to 40 weeks. :) We are so ready to meet her, & we hope she comes soon. I'll keep you posted!

Today I'm 37 weeks prego! That was the goal, so we've made it!!!! I am no longer taking the medication to stop labor. I stopped it yesterday, and so far no signs of labor at all. She may have decided that she's cozy & doesn't want to come out. I may be in for the long haul. Yesterday I felt horrible & I thought I might be getting close to the end, but today I feel pretty good again! Only God knows when she's coming, so we'll just wait patiently. I sure would like to meet her soon though! I go to the Dr. tomorrow, so I'll let you know the latest then!
Here's a silly picture of Davis that I just had to post. He's ready to meet his little sister too!

I'm 36 weeks & 2 days! That is an accomplishment! Davis was born at 36 weeks 2 days exactly, so we have at least made it past that important date. I had an appointment this morning and I'm dilated 3 cm. Steady progress, but the medicine is working, and he wants me to keep taking it until 37 weeks. It's funny that I didn't think I was having contractions, but since I have started these meds, that mysterious pain is gone for the most part. So, once again, I obviously don't know what I'm looking for. Just like when Davis was born! Just a few more days of this medication & then we will just let nature take it's course. He said it could be any time. He's hoping we can get to next week though. Next Wed, I have a sonogram scheduled to measure & give us an idea of how big she will be. We are getting so excited to meet our little girl. We are getting the nursery done little by little. We only have a few finishing touches to add. Once we have a name, I'll add that above her crib. Here are some pictures. Keep praying for our little girl! Thanks for all your prayers already!
