40 weeks!!

40 weeks due date... now where is she???? ;)

How far along? 40 weeks
Weight gain/loss: up 17 pounds
Stretch marks? yeah, ew.
Sleep? Last night was probably the worst night of sleep I've had.  I woke up about every hour and never felt like I slept in between.  Now I feel all sleepy and blah today.
Best moment this week? My bff and her family are in town and I was excited that she finally got to see me pregnant and they brought our baby girl some really sweet gifts!
Food cravings: Sweet tea, chicken salad and potato chips ha.
Gender: Girl
Belly button in or out? in.. it's quite cute.
Movement? has definitely slowed down but she gets feisty if you poke her.
What I miss? peeing like a normal person
What I'm looking forward to: meeting my daughter
Milestones: Hit my due date!

Had my appointment today and while I've made a little progress and my cervix is softening it's not looking like her birthday.  So on to trying about every natural way of bringing on labor.  Kind of disappointed about the lack of progress because I was really hoping to be further along today but that's okay she's just not ready.  But she better be ready by next week or she is coming anyhow.  Would prefer if she would do it on her own.  I don't really want to be induced but I also do not want to be pregnant into Memorial Day Weekend/June so it is what it is and I am okay with that.  Just hoping it works out on its own because I would prefer not to have to take pitocin.  But I will go into it knowing that it s MY choice, as it should be.  Not anyone elses.   They may not agree or like it, but whatever, it's my choice and it is not being made lightly.
