It seems like I have waited so long for this day to come! In a way, this pregnancy has seriously FLOWN by... but then when I really think about it... I have been pregnant for FOREVER! I have loved it and will totally miss feeling baby girl in my tummy all the time. But I'm sure having her in my arms will be so much better!
We have finished up all the last minute things.... putting the bassinet next to our bed, setting up the stroller and swing, finishing up my hospital bag, putting the car seat in the car. I am so anxious for tomorrow, yet completely nervous cause I don't really know what to expect. I know whatever we go through though, it will all be worth it when I'm finally holding her in my arms.
So after about 15 walks, 2 trial runs with castor oil, lots of love-making (big belly and all), doc stripping my membranes, trying acupressure, talking to her, eating spicy foods, chinese food, and taking herbal stuff........
Doc says I'm ready to be induced TOMORROW!
My Dad has had a crazy work schedule and has been out of town 3 of the 4 weeks this month... except for the weekends. I really want 'Papa Jon' to be there alongside the rest of our family so that's why I chose to do it this weekend, rather than waiting til my due date when my Dad will be on the road again.
She is growing healthy and strong and I can't wait to see her!! I went in yesterday and was dilated between 2 and 3 cm so hopefully it won't take FOREVER! In preparation for tomorrow, JD and I are going to get a couples massage in about an hour and I cannot wait! I told Cosy to make sure she hits ALL the points that they tell massage therapists NOT to on pregnant women or it might put them into labor. BRING IT ON COS! haha.. just can't wait! So here is the 39 week belly!
I'll try and post as soon as I can after her big arrival!! Until then... be patient... and keep us in your prayers:]
