Wow, what a week this has been. I am overwhelmed with all of the emotions that I have felt since being induced last Wednesday. It seems like just yesterday we were checking into the hospital and now our beautiful baby is 1 week old! I can't believe how hard..and how amazing parenthood is. I am so protective of Samantha already. I can't stand it when she cries because I want to make everything ok for her. It's hard for me and Nic to have other people hold her because we feel so protective of her. I just stare at her constantly, I think she is so beautiful. I can't get over what a miracle it is to have her here. I really don't know how we could live without her now.

I just wanted to say thank you to our family members for all of their help and support the past week. We really appreciate the visits and phone calls. All of my siblings have been so wonderful to me and I really appreciate them. I wanted to also give a big thank you to my in-laws for providing meals for us AND for cleaning my house! You guys are the best.

1 More Week!

Well the doctor had no good news for me at my appointment today. I was still at 2cm and my cervix has had no progress at all. SO, I am all set to be induced a week from today. I am glad to finally have an end in sight! If all goes as planned, we can expect our little Samantha to arrive on June 11th. Thanks to everyone for your prayers and calls, we appreciate all of your support!!
