Nope, no baby yet!!

Despite all the contractions I have been having the past couple days, especially today when I began to time them...no Lucy May yet!  I went yesterday for my 38 week check-up, and I have not changed at all since last week, well I did gain a pound :)  But I am still about 1cm dilated.  I sort of felt let down, I was for sure I was at least 2 or something.  I even went for a long walk on Wednesday with Molly, and still no progress.  Oh well! 

Tomorrow Eric and I are going on our last for-real, planned out date day before Lucy is born.  We are going to a fashion show, like a true legit one!  Neither one of us have ever been to a true fashion show before, so it will be an experience to say the least!  Our friend, Julie, her mom died of Pancreatic Cancer a couple years ago and ever since then she has been on a mission to raise awareness and money for Pancreatic Cancer.  So all the proceeds of this fashion show are going towards that.  It's downtown in the cool artsy part.  Trust me, who knew Milwaukee had anything trendy or artsy.  Most parts around here are still dressing like it's the 80's and rocking heavy metal.  But tomorrow we will be entering a whole new world, a fashion world.  Plus, I am very pumped about the swag bags that we will be getting, and eating some really great food.  All the clothes, food, music, everything is straight out of Milwaukee, all local.  So I am excited about that, too!  I will take pictures, well, if I am allowed, and then share our experience of our first fashion show...it's called "Purple Passion and Fashion."

Thanks to all who emailed, texted, tweeted, Facebooked me yesterday on my brother's birthday.  It was a lot more emotional for me than years past.  I think I really had my hopes up that Lucy would be born and they would share a birthday.  Even though I know God has the best day picked out for her already, I was still really hoping it was yesterday.  And sometimes it's just hard knowing that I have experienced things like graduating college, getting married, first job, kids, and Andy never had any of that.  So thank you all for the thoughts and prayers, trust me, I felt them and needed them. 

Other than that we are just living life until it is flipped upside down when Lucy gets here!  Have a great weekend!

Hang in there! Maybe Lucy will decide she likes the fashion show so much that she makes her debut tomorrow! Tell her my Molly says all the cool kids are debuting on Saturday evenings after a fun event! :)

Oh that sounds like so much fun!!! I never get to go to downtown Houston and when we went last year for our Anniversary, it was so fun. I love it because it's always like you're in a whole new world, or something! I bet you are going to have a blast!!

I can't wait to hear all about it!!!

How fun does that fashion show sound! I hope you two have such a great time!! Enjoy this last little date out as much as possible!

I was really hoping the Lucy was going to make her debut on his birthday. Sorry that it was so much tougher for you this year! HUGS!

Hope those contractions actually start doing something. It's no fun being in pain and not making any progress!

Have a great date-day with your hubby tomorrow, and hang in there Lucy will be here before you know it.

Sorry Lucy didn't come on Andy's birthday. I was hoping that she would. And I figured you would've made more progress. How disappointing!

Sorry about Lucy not getting to be born on your brother's birthday. Just hang in there. You are so close. Sometimes closer than it seems! Hope you had fun at the fashion show! Can't wait to hear all about it!

Keep hanging in there, mama! Praying for you as you remember your brother and wait for the birth of this new life.

Love to you...

Glad you are getting to do something fun! Don't get caught up on the cm dilated stuff. I've known people to go from nothing to a baby in 24 hours. So hang in there! Keeping you in my prayers!

I'll be happy to share with you some tips to get her out though. I figure you just get to do all the things my doctor told me not to! LOL!
