Last weekend as 2!
Chris and I can not believe it is our last full weekend without a sweet baby! Next weekend on Sunday (if Baby R sticks it out) January 15th we have planned our induction to meet this sweet baby. I am so excited I can hardly stand it. Chris is excited too!!
Of course if Baby R would like to come before that we are really fine with that...but it looks like he/she will need some talking out! Since my last appointment not much has changed, other than the head moving down more. I of course enjoy being able to plan some of this out...especially for school and family. I have had a fear of my water breaking at school, I mean really I don't think 7 year olds should have to see that...ha ha ha So this information makes me feel a little better about my next 4 days of teaching. However, many of my co-workers think it would be great if I went into labor there! HA
Also since Chris' parents are all the way up in Minnesota I was worried they wouldn't make it for the birth. But now we have a plan so that helps out and allows them a chance to get here before anything big happens. That makes me feel better too. Also my family can plan there travels easier so they wont be driving like crazy people and risk tickets, they both have drives through small speed trap towns!
If all goes as planned my family will arrive on Saturday and Chris' Sunday morning very early! Then we will be GO for BABY R to arrive. Of course I am a little nervous about being induced for various reasons. A) I hear the contractions suck more B) I may not dilate enough to have he/she naturally C) it tends to take way longer than "spontaneous" labor Chris quizzed our Dr. last week and she said it is fine and being induced does not harm the baby at all. He was so cute to be worried about that, but come on I am the one carrying this thing...let's get him/her out and meet them already! :-)
Until then, Chris and I are going to enjoy our last weekend just the 2 of us. We had fun with friends last night! Today I am sure we will try to squeeze in a movie, dinner, or something. What a bitter sweet feeling this is!
