I've been going to the doctor every week for the past couple of weeks. We are moving right along. I went to the doctor today. I am 3 cm dialated and 70% effaced. I've progressed a little each week. At today's appointment the doctor told us it could be ANY day because Cora Jane has already dropped. We are so excited! I truly cannot wait to meet our sweet little gift from the Good Lord. We are praying for a safe labor/delivery and a healthy baby girl. Hopefully the next post will be Cora Jane's birth story.
