Hurry Up and Wait

I went to the doctor last Friday (8/1), and it appears that I'm still in a holding pattern. I still have not progressed passed 70% effacement and 1 cm dilation. The kiddo appears to be at a -2 station which is really good, but I don't think Peanut will make his or her arrival by the 6th of August. Oh well. At least Adam and I were able to keep our 5th anniversary sacred...August 2nd will forever remain our date.

On our anniversary we went to Courthouse Falls. I did a short hike with a tad of elevation change, and we had a good day fishing, playing in the water, and having a picnic. We stopped by Dolly's for a double scoop of ice cream which didn't hurt either. So, we had a nice day relishing in the fact that we've been married for 5 whole years.
Today we finished celebrating our 5 years by filling our anniversary book. It is so much fun to reflect on everything you've done in the past year. We also went to see Wanted at the cheap theatre and the AC was busted. We stayed, but by the end of the 2 hour movie I was pouring sweat and ready to cool off.

I'm ready for this kiddo to arrive. I ride waves of excitement, fear, and just agitation. I can't wait to meet this kid, but everything happens in its own time. I'm just praying for a speedy delivery before the 12th of August because I don't want to have to be induced. God knows the day of this kid's birth, and I have to leave it in his hands. I just want Adam to have time to bond, and his teacher work days start on the 11th of August. Come on Peanut...We're waiting with open arms and hearts.
Maybe next time I write I'll actually be in labor. One can wish...(what an odd thing to wish for...pain, but the prize in the end will be worth it.)

I've been wondering how you're doing, but didn't want to ask! I figured a lot of people were asking where the kid was! Can't wait to hear the news! Hang in there!!!!

You teach HS, you can take pain! You still look wonderul! The little one is just so nice and warm... you are right, though, he/she will make an appearance when it is time. :)
