THE WORD IS.......


no baby, not much progress. we are still 1-2 cm diliated and 75% effaced, belly measuring at 37 cms, but i was having a contraction then too so probably not real accurate. the doctor feels like BellaRose is doing well and she has enough fluid around her. her heartbeat is good, we are having contractions, but no labor! we were at the doctor for 2 hours this morning having an ultra sound and the non stress test, which i thought was a little stressful b/c everytime you don't hear the heartbeat you get nervous. so we go to the hospital at 6 am on thursday the 24th to be induced. my doctor will deliver us and that makes me feel really good. we are in a bit of a shock right now, we have been preparing for this and now we know we will have a baby this weekend. it is all very surreal to us. so that will be a fun birthday for her the 24th, near memorial day. talk about trips to the lake and the beach. sounds fun!



on saturday and sunday we went to the lake at camp and let the yellow dogs go swim and rainy jumped off the diving boards. there is nothing she won't do for a tennis ball. you can see sadie, annie and dan's dog, treading water below rainy. she really liked to tread water. we also had worth's mom's dog, elly, out there on sunday. there were so many yellow dogs it was hard to keep track, but rainy was the only one to go off the diving board. you can see her commitment.
