39 Weeks: Zero is my lucky number

I had our 39 week doctor's appointment this morning and good news is that Addison is doing great! My blood pressure was 100/70, Addison's heart rate was 144, minimal swelling, etc. Dr. Solomon estimates her size to be about 7 pounds 12 ounces. Unfortunately I STILL have not progressed, I am 0% effaced, 0 cm dilated and she is still high. This lack of progress means I will NOT be induced next week, which makes total sense because my Doctor will not induce unless my body is progressing towards labor. So instead of scheduling my induction, we scheduled another doctor's appointment for Wednesday. My doctor goes on vacation on the 17th, so chances are that he will not be the one who delivers our baby. It looks like Addison will probably make her appearance the week of July 19th. I am super bummed, but very thankful for the healthy baby girl in my GIGANTIC belly.
