Why yes, I'm still pregnant

Hello friends!

Just checking in to let everyone know that baby boy is still hanging out on the inside. If you haven't guessed when he's going to arrive and all that jazz, you can play along here. Oh, come on, you know you want to!

We had an appointment with our midwife this afternoon. We decided to take Cady with us today since this *could* be our last appointment before he makes his appearance. She LOVED getting out of school early and we enjoyed having lunch with our big girl and letting her share in this special time with us. The midwife was wonderful, as always. She let Cady help measure my tummy and even let her help hold the doppler to find Baby Boy's heartbeat. It was precious and priceless. Chad recorded some of it with his Iphone and I cannot wait to watch it.

I asked the midwife to check me today so that I could let Mom know what's going on. Baby Boy is head down, but still not "engaged" so it doesn't look like his arrival is imminent (though he could prove us wrong!). I was only about a centimeter dilated and about 25-30% effaced. She could feel his head, but as I said, he's not in "position" yet. This is a-okay with me. I'd prefer for Little Bit 2.0 to remain put until a) I get my pedicure, b) I get to see the Hunger Games on Friday, and c) my mom arrives on Sunday. ;-) All kidding aside, we are getting excited to meet this little guy and look forward to introducing him to all of you!

And, for those you you who are completely bored by my ramblings, here's a picture of Cady and me at the baby shower our church threw for us last month. She was pretty proud of her "big sister" sticker.

PS I'm going to need some of you to step it up on your blogging. I need more things to read, please!

I was just thinking about you and was glad to see an update. I wish you a safe and healthy delivery and can't wait to see pictures of the new baby. Be strong!!

P.s. I know a great framer once you have some pics of the baby/whole family.
