So Close but Yet so Far !

We are finally almost there ( we hope) !  Since my last blog... I had two more wonderful baby showers. My work threw me a baby shower on September 14th and it was a lot of fun and Bowen got so much! I am very fortunate to work with amazing people who are so supportive and excited for Casey and I to have Bowen. God has blessed Casey & I so much that sometime I need to pinch myself to see if all this is REAL!

Then my neighbor, Jennifer, gave me a shower the evening of the 14th & guess what?! It was just as incredible as the rest :) The decorations were adorable, the food was fabulous but most of all just getting to spend time with my neighbors and family made the night ! Needless to say Bowen has almost everything you can imagine...He is already one rotten little boy.

Now that I am getting to the end of my pregnancy, Casey and I are getting so antsy! We are just so ready to meet our little man. I started my weekly doctor visits at 36 weeks but nothing has really happened. At 38 weeks my cervix had a small change ( starting to open ) but that's about it. I went for my 39 week appointment today and Dr. Milner had told me that if I had some significant changes that he would induce me on October 12th... But little Bowen just isn't ready yet. I think our families thought I would be really upset if I couldn't be induced on the 12th but I'm not upset at all. I want a healthy boy and I know that God has a plan and knows just the right time for Bowen to make his entrance into this world. Besides, No one stays pregnant forever, right ?! ;)

Here is my note to Bowen...

Hi Baby boy ! Mommy and Daddy are so beyond ready and excited to meet you. I get so excited to go to the doctor every week and hear your heartbeat and find out if we had had any progress. So far you are taking your sweet time, but that is okay... we love you and want you to be ready when you enter this big world we live in. Until then we will still talk to you everyday, get excited with every movement you make and dream about meeting you. We love you so much sweet boy. Stay comfy and cozy until you decide its time ! <3 Mommy !
