40 Week Update

I realized that I haven't updated on any of my doctor appointments for a couple weeks. Everything has stayed the same - dilated to a 3, except that I am 80% effaced now instead of 75%. Yeah.

Today I went in and Dr. D. informed me that he has a conference to attend this weekend (I'm due on Saturday), but he wanted to know when I'd like to schedule an induction. At this point, I feel like I have a lot to do to get ready (before I'm completely zapped of energy with a newborn and housebound), so I asked for next Thursday. Of course, they are booked on Thursday so 5:00 AM on Friday is the magic date and time. Hopefully I'll be done by noon.

Now I will have time to finish the room which I have slacked on lately, get my hair cut, get the girls' hair cut, go on the last date for a while with Nate to my favorite place - Carrabbas, and get my house spic and span. Oh, and take lots of naps and go to bed early every night (yeah right).

I will be incredibly happy to be done with this:

My hands and feet seriously look like sausages every night and I'm constantly rubbing them, but it doesn't seem to help. So here's my huge hand that even my fake wedding ring used during pregnancy doesn't fit by the end of the day. Lovely.

Speaking of pregnant people, today I have Aidan for the afternoon since Amy's in Iowa helping out Megs and Sav and A had preschool today. They haven't seen eachother all week so I'm expecting this afternoon to be fabulous. As soon as they got home, they headed upstairs and pretty soon, I go up there and this is what I find:

I asked Savannah what was in her dress and she was gracious enough to show me:

This cracked me up for numerous reasons, but the main one because of a conversation I overhead last week. London and Savannah wanted to play sisters - Amy and Mandi sisters apparently. But then they start arguing because neither of them wants to be Mandi. I hear London, "I don't want to have a big tummy. Let's pretend that I've already had all my babies." Glad to know they think my belly's attractive. So they both wanted to be Amy and not me because of my belly and now, this week, Savy's a pregnant bride.

My, how quickly they change.

That is so funny! Your girls are such cuites. As for your poor hands and feet, I feel with you on that one. Mine looked like water balloons when I was pregnant, and it was so uncomfortable. But, it's almost over, and you guys are gonna have an awesome new little bundle of joy, how exciting. Good luck next week and when you feel up to it keep us all posted, can't wait to see the new baby!

That would be a great Halloween costume. Thanks for sharing the laugh!

Savannah is hilarious! Her stuffing is killing me!

I am so excited for you. I keep checking your blog just in case things have moved up. I hope you are able to get all the things finished that you are hoping to, especially the hair cut and date. Those are two of my favorite things to do.

It was good to see you(for a split second) at the doctor's office yesterday. I can't believe you are already due. You don't even look big yet! I thought you must be further along then you looked. Good luck on this new sweet baby. 1 week! Yeah!

:) What cute girls! It is a relief when a doctor will let you set a date--I always felt thankful to know that at least it wouldn't be any later than that date! Good luck! (My babies always seemed to wait until I got everything considerate!)

Amy said...

I'll have to admit that I'm hugely relieved you're not having her while I'm away. I want to be there! So relax this weekend and next week I'll help you tons with the girlies!

Kelly said...

I was just thinking that I'm sure Amy is glad she's not missing it! Good luck with your last week. I really can't wait to hear what you name her!

That is hilarious! Good luck this Thursday, I can't wait to see the little one.
