Well, the end is drawing near! I can't wait to have this baby. It's gonna be so fun. My body is (so far) cooperating and is also preparing for baby. Last week I went for my dr. visit and I was 3 cm and 75% effaced. Yesterday went for visit #2 and I'm now 3-4 cm and 80% effaced. He said I definitely made some progress this week - YAY! I'm officially on the books to be induced April 15 at 6:30 AM! I will personally be SHOCKED if I make it that long but I know every baby can be different and if this one so pleases that's GREAT! I'm starting to like the idea of it being scheduled - just because I know where the kids are and husband, parents and Sally and Delilah can get off work. I'm not springing anything on anybody. But - we've figured this out before and we can figure it out again. I have these blissful thoughts if it was scheduled Noah and Anna could be there and be the ones to tell everyone "It's a ___!" If not scheduled they may have no one to tell!
I'm one of the VERY few who enjoy my OB visits. We had a GREAT time yesterday and as usual Jason and Dr. A sat back and laughed at how insane I am. First of all, I asked what I can do to go in labor - if the old wives tales are true...Well, this one I've never heard before but maybe the locals can let me know...he said (exact words)..."Go eat at Davenports Pizza" Well then okay! Jason and I will soon make a date there. He said he has no idea why - but he has sisters that swear by it! You know next week I may try anything! Then, I asked what he thought I was having, he said he has no idea. I said just guess...so he guessed GIRL. Immediately I asked - "Why did you say that?" His answer..."You told me to guess." Well, Dr. R thinks BOY. So, I have one who thinks it's a Boy and one who thinks it's a GIRL! Me personally - I think it's an alien baby (Noah thinks it's hilarious when I say that - he says "if it is, I'm calling it ET"). And Rachel...Last week the heartrate was 138 this week 143! So...See my dilemma! I LOVE NOT KNOWING. That has been my prayer! So, I officially have no idea what I'm having now!
In other news...My nursery is done! Like a crazy person, I changed the color from yellow to green (thank you Ronnie for painting it - I LOVE IT). I just have to get Jason to put my glider in there and it's ALL done. There's nothing on the walls though! There will be when I know if it's a boy or girl though!
I'm not packed in a bag but everything I'm taking is in the baby bed. So, I just need to get it in my suitcase. I had a baby Tea last Sunday and I got a ton of diapers, wipes, lotions, desitin and other baby essentials. Who knew I would REALLY want all that stuff and I am SO appreciative of it.
My last day of work is April 9th! I can't believe it! I only have 3 more days of work until June! WHOO HOO! But I still LOVE my new job and things have gone GREAT since I've started.
Proof that this is not the first time I've had an ALIEN BABY!
This April - who knew one year ago...BUT I LOVE IT!!
