So I just got home from my 39 week appt. It was supposed to be on Wednesday but the midwife had a birth and it was rescheduled to today (almost 40 weeks).

The good news, Nikolas' heartbeat is great! He's in the best position with his back on my left side.

The discouraging news... his head isn't engaged yet - still pretty high. They didn't want to do a sweep today - they will wait until my next appt (which is Monday). She told me that I have a "good sized baby" in there .... I hope that doesn't mean big!

I feel really emotional... I wanna cry. I just really feel that I'm done and I'm ready to have this baby but now he's not ready yet. I wanted to be a Mom before Mother's Day. I don't think it'll happen though... so here I sit and wait.

In the meantime, I have resolved to bring our yoga ball everywhere around this house with me. It is my new chair at almost all times. Come on gravity - bring this baby down!!!

Oh no honey I'm soooo sorry that he's not engaged but glad that he's still growing well. I hope that he moves his way down before long. Just remember that your a mother even if he's not here yet.

Connor wouldn't move down either! But after my water broke he made his way pretty quickly. So, I don't think it's necessarily an indication of when you'll have him. I know what you mean about just wanting to be done and how discouraging it can be when you're not making progress. Just know that he'll be here within a week or so and then you'll look back and wonder where the time went! Until then, lots of hugs coming your way.

Don't worry chica, your little guy will be out before you know it. Camden hadn't dropped until the day I was induced, and I still had a nice quick vaginal birth. So excited for you!!

I totally feel your pain with the emotional part. By the end you are just completely done!! I think it's still definitely possible to be a mother by mother's day...even though you already are a mother, you know!!! Hang in there sweetie. He will make his appearance very soon!!

Liss - even if you are not holding Nikolas in your arms today - you are his MOM. Mother's are not made at birth!!
