Plus One at Nearly 40 Weeks

Just add water ... and anything with vinegar.

Baby Girl Smith decided to make her way into the world just one day before her estimated due date, and just in time for me to stop worrying about my scheduled induction. On Sunday evening, after a few bouts with false labor, I went on a long walk, came home to decorate the tree, baked some cookies, and bam(!), I was in labor. About seven hours later, our girl was here.

Her birth went smoother than I could have dreamed, and Baby Girl is a dream come true.

Watch me grow: Here’s a photographic catalog of my pregnancy. Of course, the finale is the best part. From now on, you can read more from me over at Baby’s First Year. I don’t think I’ll miss being pregnant, but I’ll miss being here at Being Pregnant!
