So here I am. One week left and still pregnant. GET THIS BABY OUT OF ME!!!
Actually, I've been thinking that maybe it's a good thing he isn't out yet. I've been sick these past weeks with a killer cold, and it would be horrible to have a new baby in those conditions. Not to mention my mom and sister, Libby, come into town on Thursday, so I might as well wait till they get here so I have help with the kiddos.
I went to the Dr. this past week and he checked me. I'm not even close to being dilated. If I had even been dilated to a one or two, he would've induced me this weekend, since Meg was such a big baby (9 lbs, 3 oz), but since I was nothing, it was a no go.
He DID SAY that he'll check me at my next appt, which will be this upcoming Friday, and if I'm still nothing, he'll do what I can to soften me up (ouch), and if I haven't had this baby boy by Sunday, he's going to induce me on Monday, the 14th. My Valentine's baby.
YAY! I'm so excited to know that the end is in sight.
Some have asked me how I feel about having this baby on Valentine's Day. Well for one, I still have a chance of having him before then. For another, all I can say is, if I have him then, I know I at least get to have that night without the other kids, so it's still a date, right?? haha. Honestly though, I don't care. Bo and I usually celebrate a couple days before or after anyways, because we hate the overpriced flowers and the crowds. As for the baby, well it's a boy, and I doubt he would care. If it were a girl, I would probably choose to wait longer, because no girl wants to share the love day with her birthday. They should be separate so that a girl gets recognized for BOTH ;) but a boy?? I don't think mine will care. If he's anything like his dad he won't.
So there you have it! ONE WEEK! Woohoo!!!!
And I'm thinking this'll be the last pregnancy picture of me. Enjoy my hugeness.
FYI: this has actually been my lightest pregnancy by at least 5 lbs. Also, I got two compliments last week on how cute and round my belly was. That made me feel much better.
