I can officially say that Miss Lilah will be here soon. At my appointment yesterday, I was dilated to 2 1/2 cm and was 70% effaced. We asked about scheduling an induction and it has been scheduled for July 22nd. I have dilated and effaced enough to not need Cervidil, so that morning I will just be going in to get Pitocin and hopefully everything progresses well from there. Lilah baby will be here in nine days, if not sooner if she decides to come on her own. I can’t wait for our little girl to arrive. Now that the induction date is scheduled, it’s getting more and more real that soon our lives will be consumed with this little baby. Austin and I have two weekends left as a couple without a child and truthfully, it’s a little scary.
Austin has been so sweet lately. Most of the pregnancy, he hasn’t seemed that interested in things, but lately he’s been wanting to do nothing but talk to Lilah and feel all her kicks and movements. I love this picture that I took yesterday while he cuddled with us, talked to her, and eventually took a little nap while holding onto my belly.
Baby is the size of: a pumpkin.
Pre-Pregnancy Weight: 135 pounds
