Well, this is my 41 week pregnant belly as of today:
I haven't done any of the bi-weekly updates here like I wish I had, but it was just too much this time. I have found I have just enough energy to keep up with my toddler, keep the house clean, do the gardening and laundry, and pull some dinner together. For my sanity, I have always prioritized having a clean house (I just can't think or function in a dirty/cluttered one), so other things have gone by the wayside now that most of my time is spent chasing after and entertaining my little guy.
I didn't really think I would still be pregnant at this point (aren't second babies supposed to come sooner?!), so I don't have any plans for the week other than my midwife appointment. Not having any plans when you are waiting for baby is the worst! I desperately want the distractions so that time will go faster!

We are planning another homebirth this time, but I am completely open to how it will go. I have tests and an ultrasound on Thursday to see if fluid levels are good and the placenta is still functioning. If so, I can continue on with the pregnancy, but otherwise I would go to the hospital to be induced (as I was with my first). After 42 weeks, you cannot deliever with a midwife per state law, so we'll have to make decisions if I get to that point. For now, I'm still hopeful that I will go into spontaneous labor within this next week!
