Ding...your done!

Well today is my due date and this kid is still not here. I keep telling the baby, "it is so much nicer out here, we are all ready to meet you" but no response. I have a induction set up for tomorrow at 12noon, but unfortunately it can still get bumped because I am low man on the totem pole (voluntary induction). Hopefully there will be a baby in my arms in 36 to 48 hours.

I am so excited I just can't wait. I want to know what this baby is!! I want to give him/her the name we have picked for him/her. Soon Jennifer....soon...I hope!

Here is what BabyCenter says about me this week:
How your baby's growing:
It's hard to say for sure how big your baby will be, but the average newborn weighs about 7 1/2 pounds (a small pumpkin) and is about 20 inches long. Baby's skull bones are not yet fused, which allows them to overlap a bit if it's a snug fit through the birth canal during labor. This so-called "molding" is the reason your baby's noggin may look a little conehead-ish after birth. Rest assured — it's normal and temporary.

My 39 Week Appointment

So I went to the doctor on Thursday. I am still only dilated to 1. How can that be?? I am so ready for this kid to be out and we decided to set up an induction for January 15th at 12 noon. Of course, that all depends on the triage of the day. I will have not other appointments at the doctor's office. Hopefully the next blog will have information about me going into labor. Fingers crossed!!

39 weeks...so close!

BabyCenter Says:
How your baby's growing:
Your baby's waiting to greet the world! Baby continues to build a layer of fat to help control body temperature after birth, but it's likely baby already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.

So ready to have this baby

Okay, So I have been trying everything under the sun to get this labor going (Acupressure, Black Kohash, Raspberry Leaf Tea, Sex, etc.) Any suggestions out there? The baby has dropped dramatically and I think it will be soon, but not soon enough for me...

I am so ready to have this baby. I want to me him/her, and give them their name. I want to kiss their little nose. I want to see my feet again and not have to stop after doing something for 30 minutes because I am exhausted.

I will post when something more happens.

So Anxious

I am getting so anxious to meet my little bundle.

I don't remember being this exhausted with Brianne towards the end. Right now it is virtually impossible for me to do my regular activities without getting winded or needing to rest. It is really getting annoying, but at least I am almost to the end.

If I had to guess...we will meet this little one within 2 weeks.
