The Light at the end of the Tunnel

There is a light at the end of the tunnel…I am not going to be pregnant forever!

This past Tuesday I had my 38 week appointment. I made no progress from the week before, but she did give me some hope. She gave me the option to strip my membranes which can cause you to go into labor within 24 hours, which so far has not worked. I was telling her that the last thing I want it to go over my due date and she stated that because I have gestational diabetes they won’t let me go past August 8th. If I have not had him by Monday the 4th, they would schedule me to be induced. So, hopefully by this time next week we will have Oliver here!

Now, the big question…is my mom going to be back from Seattle? My cousin Chris is getting married this Saturday and most of my Fresno family is going to be there. Uncle John, Aunt Sharon, Aunt Sally, Derek, and Darren all left this morning for the drive up there, and my mom leaves tomorrow morning to catch her flight in Sacramento. Also, Katie and Eric are closing on their new house on Thursday. If it goes my way (yea right) I would like to be induced on Wednesday morning, that way everyone will be in Fresno.

I will have an update here as soon as we have him and post a lot of pictures!!!
