I haven't posted a belly pic in a long time, so here's one:
This is how I look at 40.5 weeks pregnant. Scout was due last Friday but decided his/her 98.6-degree home is preferable to the upper 40's and rain we've been getting in the western NC mountains. So we wait.
I went to the midwife today and Scout's heartbeat was the usual 140 bpm. I'm 3 cm dilated and 80% effaced--not a huge change after my 11-hour contraction marathon Friday night, but oh well. When she did the cervical exam, the midwife said she could feel Scout's little head. Pretty cool!
My body is apparently ready for Little Scout. Now we're just waiting for Little Scout to make his/her move.
