I had another check up today. The baby's heart rate was in the low 150's which is good and everything else seemed to be fine. She has "dropped" quite a bit in the last week and it was obvious at my appt today. I am 1-2cm and 50% effaced. Hopefully this means it won't be too much longer before she comes. All I know is that I am more than ready for her to get here. These past few weeks have been very uncomfortable for me and it is getting harder and harder to find ways to sit and sleep without hurting. At least there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
On a more upsetting note, the Army has messed with Adam's leave again and now it is looking like he will not be here for the delivery. He is scheduled to leave Afghanistan a few days after my due date and it can take anywhere from 2-5 days for him to reach the US. So we have changed plans a little. My mom is planning on flying up here to be with me during the delivery and my dad will drive up the following week. At some point during that time Adam should get home (hopefully in time for Andrew's 1st day of kindergarten). We will see how it all works out.
One last note......Please keep Adam and his unit in your prayers. There have been several incidents so far this deployment and all of Fort Drum is taking a hit. We have lost 19 soldiers since the first of May and many others have been injured. So far we have been lucky and Adam has escaped any harm, but the risk is always there. Thanks so much!

Andrew really enjoyed looking at all of the farm animals
