Yep, we're at 3 centimeters dilation folks. After a significant weight gain last visit due to swelling, I hadn't gained anything this week. Last week I also wasn't dilated at all. I did test positive for group B strep, so I'll have to be treated during birth for it, but Dr. Sams said it's normal and no big deal. No worries. At this point Hayden could come and I wouldn't be stopped. Dr. Sams said I should go into labor on my own and he expects the birth to be pretty easy since this whole pregnancy has been so smooth. Guess we'll see. I don't feel any anxiety or worry about the process, and I'm trusting God for the timing. The dr. won't let me go past my due date, but I don't foresee Hayden coming tonight or tomorrow. Then again, I'm not God. I really believe Hayden is long--either that, or he's really stretched out. Dr. Sams could feel Hayden sitting down low, but he hasn't dropped yet. I'm so ready to meet baby boy, but a couple more weeks of him hanging out inside would be wonderful!

I was just thinking of you earlier today, and am so glad you posted! You are so right. Hayden will arrive in God's time. Can't wait to meet the little guy! ;)

Glad to know you are doing well. And I hope things are going smoothly for you as you continue preparations for maternity leave. If I can help you in anyway, please don't hesitate to call on me.

Best Wishes,

Yay! Hayden's arrival is close. I hope ya'll have a great Easter! Get as much sleep as possible- you'll be so glad you did when he arrives. =c)

P.S. I had the Group B strep too and had absolutely no problems with Abby. It is pretty common.

It's getting close!!! Congrats! I can't believe you're that calm..I was so anxious I was begging the Dr. to put me in because I was scared of having the baby at home.

Don't worry about the Group B strep I had it with Austin and it's not a big deal.

Rest up my friend you're going to need it!! :)
