Well, we are 2 days past due and still no baby yet! I was 1 cm and 80% effaced this past Tuesday. I'm having some irregular contractions, but nothing too intense =( If we don't have a baby by tomorrow night, then we go in for an induction. I'll get a cervidil (cervical "ripener") Sunday night and then pitocin Monday morning. Until then, we are just passing the time. It is odd just waiting around for something to happen. The house is thoroughly cleaned! Chris and I went yesterday and got foot massages and they massaged the pressure points that are supposed to stir up labor. I'm trying anything at this point. I'm officially miserable! We will keep you all posted in the next few days! Will it be a boy or girl? My vote is a little boy that weighs 7#3 oz and Chris votes a girl that weighs 7#9 oz...we'll see...
I wanted to share some of our belly shots with you all. We had so much fun at the photo shoot and we're happy with how they turned out. There pics were when I was about 33 weeks pregnant. The quality of the pictures aren't that great b/c I had to scan them into my computer.
We are now counting down the days! August 27th is just around the corner and we're patiently waiting on Baby H. The room is complete and our bags are packed! So far, I haven't had one real contraction. I'm still hanging in there and not too terribly uncomfortable yet. I've been blessed to have such a great pregnancy so far! I do admit that I'm a little nervous about the whole labor/delivery. I'm ready for that part to be behind me! I think that a little ignorance is bliss with your 1st baby can be a good thing and I don't get that luxury since I work in L&D. Keep me and the baby in your prayers over the next couple of weeks and pray that the delivery goes well and we have a healthy baby! I posted some pics of the baby's room. I worked hard at sewing the crib bedding and curtains. I thing it turned out pretty gender neutral. Lots of green!
We got married May 2005 and are living happily ever after. We love living out in the country and have learned to enjoy the simple things in life. I am a nurse in labor & delivery and Chris is a firefighter. We have a beautiful little girl, Ella, and new sweet little boy, Hayden. We are blessed with a wonderful life and good family and friends!
