Pregnancy Diary – Week 40


I’m now at 40 weeks + 2 days and our little guy has yet to make an appearance. I had my last check up today, and I was 3 cm dilated and 80% effaced, so we’re making progress! My stomach was still measuring small, so I got another ultrasound. We got a nice side profile shot this time! Everything looked fine on the ultrasound though. We have planned to induce in the morning (12/27) if he doesn’t arrive tonight.

I’ve been feeling contractions for the past 3 days now. They’re still not very consistent in timing, but are coming every 7-10 minutes right now.

Thankfully my mom has already arrived to stay with Rosen while we’re in the hospital, so she was able to watch her for us this evening so Michael and I could have one last date night. It was nice to get out, even thought I was timing my contractions throughout our whole dinner. We made sure to get home well before Rosen’s bedtime though so we could spend a little quality time with her before our hospital stay. We’ll probably have to leave before she wakes up in the morning. This will be the longest we’ve ever been away from her, so I’m not looking forward to that part, but I know she’ll be in good hands.

I’m just ready for our little guy to get here!
