At my appt today, Baby Jay's heartbeat was 140 and I'm measuring at 40 weeks. Unfortunately, I didn't have any change in my cervix. Still a 3-4 and 80% effaced. I was really hoping to be a good 4, but that's ok. I had to do a non-stress test, which he finally passed. It took a while as he was a sleepy thing. If I don't have him this week, I go back next Monday. I think my doc thought I'd be having him this week. Sean thinks that as well. I really don't know what I think as I thought I would have had him last week. He'll come when he's good and ready! :) My babies must love my uterus! :)

Overall, the worst thing about the pregnancy has been the heat. Today it was only 73 degrees this morning when I was in town and it didn't wear my out at all. When it's 103 degrees and I'm out and about, I get worn out quick! So, as long as I stay relatively cool, I'll be good as well wait and see when this baby decides it should be his birthday.
