Getting near the finish line!

Yesterday I went to my weekly doctor appointment. I got my usual ultra-sound and progesterone shot. I also talked to the doctor. I usually do not see a doctor every week but since I am getting close to the end of my pregnancy, I will start seeing him more. We talked about what is going to start happening in the next few weeks. On my 37th week, I will have the cerclage removed. That is the stitching they put around my cervix to keep it closed. This will be the week of July 20th. If I do not go into labor at that point, then I am scheduled the 4th of August to be induced! I hope that I will go into labor on my own, but if not I at least know I will not have to go to my due date of August 13th. So, this really means that I have about 9 to 10 and a half weeks to go before our little bundle arrives. I am getting excited to meet this little boy that God is so graciously blessing us with.
