One Week Overdue!

Is it necessary to be a full week overdue? Our baby doesn't want to come out and meet us. My doctor is super surprised that I haven't even felt one contraction yet. Nothing! He says everything looks like I should be in labour soon. He's hesitant on inducing me because he says both the baby and I look very ready. Ready or not...the baby's not coming. I have doctor appointments every couple of days and Non-Stress Tests at the hospital all the time too. Last week Tim said that he thought it would be cool if the baby was born on our anniversary. I thought that seemed like forever away. Well, tomorrow is our anniversary and I can only hope the baby comes then.

Here's me at the hospital for another Non-Stress Test:
Waiting for the results of my Non-Stress Test:

The print-out of the Non-Stress Test. The top row is the baby's heart rate and the bottom row shows whether or not I'm having contractions. See those two peaks? Wohoo two contractions, but I didn't feel them:

Oh the joys of going over!! I know them oh so well=) At a week over they sent me for an ultrasound to chek the baby and the fluid. That's when I got the 9 pound baby news!! I am sure that this baby is not going to make you wait too much longer, but getting induced wasn't bad either. I can't wait to here all the news=)
