So I am now a week away from my due date and as you can tell from this picture I am just HUGE. I went to the doctor's again this morning and was very discouraged afterwards. I am still not progressing with dilation and the doctor said he didn't think the baby had dropped. He said this could be bad news because that means my pelvis is too small and we might have to have her through a C-Section. Even if that's not the case, he said he thinks she will go past her due date and he also thinks she is about 8 pounds right now (all news that you don't want to hear at this point). I really don't think I can handle 2 more weeks of this and a C-section scares me half to death. I know doctors are wrong a lot and I hope that is the case here. All I know is that I am going for several walks this week and I am going to try to do anything I can to put myself into labor. Some exciting news is that mom is coming up today and I am very excited to see her. At least I know she will get to be here for the birth. I hope everyone is doing well and I will let you know if anything new happens soon.

I just wanted to add some more pictures of me throughout the pregnancy.

Hello! This is Maran writing. I don't usually write on this thing but I decided I would try to start since I am home all day and don't have much to do. I went to the doctors again this morning but unfortunately I don't have any exciting news to share. I am barely dilated to a 1. Everything seems to be on track for her to come on her due date. We were hoping she would come a little early but so far it doesn't look that way. We will for sure have her by October 12th though because the nurse said they will induce me at 41 weeks if I haven't had her by then. Let's hope I don't have to wait that long.Other than that there really hasn't been a whole lot going on in our lives. We don't have any pictures to post because our computer either got a virus on it or the motherboard just went bad and all of our pictures were saved on that computer. Fortunately we were able to save the hard drive from that computer and as soon as we can hook it up to the new computer that we had to buy, we will post some pictures of my huge belly. I hope all is going well with everyone! I will keep you posted if anything new and exciting happens.

Today Maran went to the doctor again ( I went with her, but I am not important to the story). The doctor told her that everything was looking good, and then we found out that Maran is dilated to..... 1/2 a centimeter. That is normal, so it seems so far that Hannah should come around her due date, which is October 5th. Hannah is also in the position she is supposed to be, so we are grateful for that. Maran will go back to the doctor every week now, so they can check her, which is not that pleasant of an experience for her.
Not much other news. Maran is now done with work, which she has enjoyed her time getting things ready for Hannah. Next time we will have pictures of the bedroom so you can see her crib and how it is set up. I also started school again, which is nice in a weird way. This semester I am only taking online classes, so even though I only go to school to take tests, it is nice to get back into it.
Thats everything for now. We would love to hear from you, so please let us know how you are doing.
