The Waiting Game

So at this point I'm 40 weeks and 4 days along and no baby girl Larson!! I'm showing absolutely nnnooooo signs of labor and having nnnooo contractions. As you can see, my pregnancy ticker is a little confused as it was at 0 days left, and now it's starting to count up again, but it is one day off. The latest news is that my mommy is here from Chicago (yay) and that this little girl is posterior, head down, but facing the total wrong way unfortunately, which in my opinion is why she hasn't dropped and partly why I'm overdue. I hope and pray they will be able to turn her around or that by some miracle she will turn during labor as posterior babies can potentially cause some problems.
She's just chillin in there, loving up her life. Anyway, I have a doctors appointment first thing tomorrow morning and depending on how dilated I am, they will start a folley catheter on me tomorrow night, I'll stay in the hospital that night, and then first thing Wednesday morning they'll start pumping me full of pitocin to get my uterus to work!! If I'm already pretty dilated tomorrow morning, they'll forgoe the folley catheter Tuesday night and just start inducing Wednesday morning. Anyway, I'm glad to know that there is an end in sight and that end is just two days away! We are sooo excited for this day to finally come and to meet baby girl Larson!!! Here are my last prego pics at 40 weeks, 3 days...
