Bumpdate - Weeks 40 and 41!

Well, I made it to my due date. I've been furiously working on the nursery in my spare time and decided to call-in-pregnant to work on Friday the 18th. {Thank you, PRA, for 4 weeks of annual leave.} My maternity leave officially started on my due date, May 21st, which came and went without a baby in sight. 

At my OB appointment on Tuesday, I was dilated to a 3 {hooray!} but still only 50% effaced. Which, if you aren't in the motherly way or haven't been, when you're at 100% effaced you're ready to deliver. So, I had my membranes stripped and was sent on my way with an induction date scheduled for Monday, May 28th - Memorial Day. I'm hoping this baby gets here before then!
Here's a picture of me in the nursery {still in progress} at 40 weeks!

 In the meantime, we've been getting a fence put up in our backyard. These two guys have been awesome! This is after the first day. They came back again to put cement in the holes and now it's just drying. By next week we'll have a brand new {expensive} fence! I'm so excited! I'll have to get pictures when it's finished.
