39 Weeks!!

39 WEEKS!! Wow!!

As in



I went to the doctor and I'm a whopping ONE centimeter dilated! It may not sound like much (and it's not), but it's progress for me that things are heading in that direction which I truly can't believe! Next week is my spring break so my last day of work is Friday, 3/28 so it's starting to feel more real as I'm officially on maternity leave!! I'm so excited to tie up loose ends at work and start this new chapter of having a baby. Having a Lily Grace!!

Here's the latest belly picture...thanks to Kelle for taking our beautiful maternity pictures!! Lots of bare belly ones that I'm too shy to post, but here's one of Lily hiding in the white. Can you see her? teehee

This could be one of my last ones!! Other than swollen and sore feet, I'm very comfortable and don't feel 39 weeks pg!! Not waddling yet!! As much as I can't wait to meet sweet Lily, I'm REALLY going to miss being pregnant and having her with me all day everyday!! I never dreamed being pg could be so miraculous!! The bond is so strong already; I can't even imagine when she's in our arms!! happy sigh.

Whenever I'm looking forward to something, I use the expiration date on the milk carton at the grocery store as a guide to how close/far the event is. It could be anything from a movie release, long weekend, vacation, upcoming wedding, to having a baby! Well, Jen sent me this text that says it all... showing how close it really is...

Here's what our sweet Lily has been up to this week:
