I went back to the doctor today..same old news..still 3 cm dilated and 50% effaced. But on a good note, I didn't gain any weight, so I'm hanging steady at 26 lbs. Plus, Dr. Trollip okayed me going back to Lumberton on Thanksgiving Day! She just told me to be prepared to head back home at the slightest sign of pain. The baby has completely dropped and the heartbeat was a steady 145. Luckily, since this isn't my first baby and since I've had the other two early, if for some reason I do make it to my due date of December 10th, she assured me that they wouldn't make me wait until I'm 41 weeks to be induced. While I'm so ready to meet Lily, I'm very excited that I can be with my family for Thanksgiving and that I'll be able to go shopping on Black Friday. Chris & I really look forward to shopping all day on that day. That's the day that we pretty much do all of our Christmas shopping! Then, it's time to put up the tree on that Saturday! I absolutely love Christmas time and it would be wonderful to have everything done by the time Lily arrived. I'll keep everyone updated!!
