The Weekly Update

We had another check up today. The bad news is, I am back to 1cm dilated (the midwife kind of pushed me to a three last week), the good news (sort of) is that the doctor said she really doesn't want me to go past my due date due to my blood pressure. So, that means we should be parents within the week (my due date is Thursday, April 23rd). We are praying that labor happens spontaneously, before induction is even considered or scheduled.

I have to go in on Friday to have my blood pressure re-checked and the doctor will probably make the call in that appointment.

The best news is that our little one is looking great. His movement, size and heart beat are all perfect and he is in great position for delivery. I can't tell you how excited I am to squeeze his little toes and smooch on his yummy cheeks.

Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement. We love you all and can't wait to introduce you to little Liam Brooks.
