Still waiting....

So first of all may I say I hate the new Blogger set up! I am the type of person that likes things to stay the way they are once I am used to them. I don't like Facebook's stupid Timeline and I don't like Bloggers "new look" (although I DO like that I can easily see how many times my posts have been read - good to know some people are still out there reading!).... I digress.

On Friday we found out that yet again there is NO progress. I am not dilated at all and Logan has not dropped - UGH! 40 weeks today and nothing to show towards any progress. It's very frustrating. Thankfully they will not let me go past 41 weeks. That is what I am the most afraid of so I am happy that I won't go past 41 weeks.

We ALSO found out that technically my due date is the 25th not today (the 23rd) - I still consider today my due date because it's ridiculous that no one told me until Thursday that it was different. So whatever. Anyways.... I have and ultrasound to check what they estimate Logan's weight at and then after that an NST to see how he is doing (this part makes me nervous because I hope he does ok). I am glad that they are taking the initiative to see how the pregnancy is going at least. Both my doctors at some point have made comments to the fact that my pelvic bone region is VERY narrow so I am thinking even if I do happen to go into natural labor on my own he probably won't fit.... So hopefully on Thursday if there is still no progress they will just schedule and ultrasound. I am PRAYING it will be for Friday because my husband already has Friday and Saturday off but it may have to wait until Monday :( which would be more of a pain in the butt. But we'll have to figure it out somehow....

Anyways.... just thought I would update.

I plan to wear a necklace I bought awhile back to the hospital... this is what it says:  " Lil' babies, 

we will never forget you... Let a part of my angel babies' souls be reflected in the spirit of my 

future child so that I may know them better. May the Lord hole my lil' babies tightly in His strong, 

loving arms until I can. May the angels sing them sweet lullabies, but only until I get there."

Riley, Peyton, & Cameron,

We love you sweet babies.... and we always, always will <3


  1. That is so beautiful and just prefect for a mommy who has both angel babies and babies here in her arms. Very, very sweet!

    I am still praying Jess. I promise not to stop. I love that little guy too and want him safe in his mommy's arms as soon as possible.

    Lots of love to you and all of your precious babies and HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOGAN CHARLES!!!!! (Maybe he will take the hint and come out and meet everyone who loves him:)


  2. I'm waiting anxiously for your good news. I can't wait to see pictures! I was induced at 41 weeks. It was so exciting! I ended up with a C-section, though. I wouldn't change a thing about being induced. It was the right decision for us. But I do want you to read my c-section post JUST IN CASE!!! There is a lot of stuff that no one tells you about c-sections. I try to cover everything in my experience. I also have pretty detailed posts about my labor/delivery experience.

    Lots of luck and love to you. I love it when Rainbow babies are born!

  3. Praying for a SMOOTH delivery!!!! Best wishes to you and Logan

  4. I'm not a fan of the setup either but I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually!!

    Hoping he makes his appearance soon!

  5. Your little guy is going to be here before you know it. I just hope if he can't make it out the right way, they don't let you labor for long before doing a c-section. BTW, c-sections aren't bad at all.

    I can't wait to read about your baby boy's entrance!

  6. Still praying for you!! I can't wait for your next update... filled with stats and pictures of a beautiful screaming baby. :-)

    It's okay if you end up with a c-section... don't let anyone make you feel like you failed or any of that other crap. Just make sure you are informed about the hospital's "protocol" (just in case). My first ended up being an emergency c-section which was so scary because none of that was shown/mentioned during our hospital tour. All the classes, I took through the hospital, focused on "natural" birth and barely mentioned c-section (let alone emergency c-sections). Looking back, I wish I'd been more information about what could happen if I ended up having to have a c-section. Best advice: hope and pray for a "natural" birth, be prepared for a c-section!! :-)
