Well, Russell and I went to our 39-week dr's appointment yesterday, and we were encouraged to hear that I've progressed. Dr. Sparks seemed delighted! He did say that we're about 1.5 cm dilated but that that doesn't mean much...I could go into labor any time. He said that all we're waiting for now is for me to go into labor! So, we're praying that I'll go into labor now! I've not had one contraction. So, we're still just in waiting mode.
We praise the Lord that Rhys is measuring perfectly and that I am feeling absolutely wonderful! No back pain, no sciatic symptoms! Yay!! I'm officially staying home from work since I'm due this Sunday, and I just want to be home. I woke up late this morning, did my Bible study and then felt compelled to clean house, so I did! More nesting!! :)
More good news...we are officially scheduled to be induced next Wednesday, January 28th! So, Lord willing, by this time next week, we'll have a baby in our hands and no longer in my tummy! :)
Still praying for Rhys to come naturally and NOW :) but it's a relief to know that he should be here by this time next week regardless.
