Week 39....Mommy needs some wine!

You are your mother's daughter. The oh so familiar phrase my mom's mom said to her and then said to me. Miss Ryleigh Kate is her mother's daughter. This little lady is as stubborn as they make them. Obviously because she doesn't want to come out. We knew we would have a wild one when we realized that she never stops moving and kicking...even when its time for bed. What we didn't realize is that she would be this rebelious before she is even here! Come out I said! We have had many talks and she is still not here. Well soon enough she will have to come out.

We go for our 39 week appointment tomorrow with Dr. Hinton again. Yes...I am seeing her again because she said she would "assist" with pushing labor along. No, not inducing but I will spare you all the gruesome details. We have tried everything else (well except drinking Castor oil). Hills, spicy food, chiropractic adjustments, massage, and sex. Not that you needed to know that part. SO hopefully we will have some more news tomorrow or the end of the week.

If for some CRAZY reason she is not here by the 15th we will induce that afternoon. Dr. Hinton will do it as early as the 12th but if we are going to plan this we would rather wait until the weekend so Kyle can have extra time with her since he only gets a week off of work.

Stay tuned for more updates!!! And please keep us in your prayers for a speedy and healthy delivery. Love, A

The Last Supper...
