Nearly 38 Weeks & Counting

Today we had another visit with the doctor & all went well. Alisha is measuring at 40 weeks. It's been typical throughout for her to measure 2 weeks ahead. We also found out today that she is dilated to 1 centimeter & she's 50% effaced. So if you know what that means, then I'm glad. All I know is that it sounds like we're starting to make some progress. Obviously we're beginning to wonder how big this baby is going to get & what it will be like to bring this baby into the world. According to our doc, who we have great respect for, standard care is that at 9lbs. or more a c-section is offered. So who knows, we may be getting close to that point. We have another appointment in a week, if we make it that far we'll probably be making some decisions. But who knows. We'll keep taking it one day at a time for right now. The bags are basically packed. The car seat is locked & loaded. I guess we're ready. We even wrote a lullaby for the little one. I'll see if I can figure out a way to record it & post it here for you to listen to, if you're interested. For now, keep us (especially Alisha) in your prayers. Thanks!

Thanks for the update! It sounds like those contractions are being productive now! Guess its gonna be a race to see if mommy goes into labor or baby keeps gaining weight! Keep doing 'everything' you can...! I think the hold up is that we haven't gone to Top of the River yet...we need to fix that! How about Sunday lunch? I hope you can find a way to put the lullaby on here...it is incredible. Your baby is so blessed already. Yall are awesome and we love you so much. We'll keep prayin! love, Lane and family
