Just waiting....and waiting...and waiting...

5 more days! OMG it feels like this baby is never going to come out!! I actually get this feeling that she is completely content in my stomach and plans to stay there until something forces her out! Hopefully it will be my uterus squeezing her out :) Everytime I see someone they comment on how much I've dropped, even since the last time I saw them. I feel that I've dropped so much she should already have dropped out, hehe. It's not even my due date yet, so I'm not sure why I'm so anxious... I guess I just wanna meet her.
I had my last dr. appt. last Wednesday. I was a whopping 1 cm, woohoo! I was kind of excited cause I've never been a "1" before. (Iz was a c-section and I wasn't even close to starting any kind of labor...) Well we went back in on Sunday and I'm pretty sure the dr. said I had gone down to like a 1/2 :( didn't quite know that was possible, tear tear. It seems like Ryan might be right again and that my "walls of Jericho" will never come down, hehe.
Ryan is home now for his paternity leave, yay! He gets 3 weeks off. I'm glad he's here before Al comes to help me out with Iz. With all my meltdowns, especially lately, and "nesting" nagging I'm sure he's also looking forward to the arrival of the baby and end of my pregnancy. He's been a trooper.
We're anxious to see how Iz responds to the baby. She understands that Al's in mama's tummy- she even shares with my stomach :) But I wonder if she'll still think Al's in my stomach after she's born or if she'll know Al is the baby. We're not quite sure how she's going to handle not being the center of attention. We think she'll be excited at first but that might quickly wear off when she's not allowed to sleep with us anymore or she sees that she has to share her time with us with Al. (She isn't very good at sharing...)
We're trying to have Aly via VBAC; but if she goes past next Friday, my next dr. appt, then we will be scheduling a c-scetion. The bad thing about that is it probably won't be until that next week and Ryan's parents will be in Hawaii. It will also leave me with a harder recovery and less time with Ryan at home helping out since he'll have to go back to work soon after. So let's cross our fingers and hope our little nugget is ready to come out!


  1. Hee Hee, you are so funny. I know how you feel. Last night I told Justin that I'm pretty sure that any moment now this baby is just going to fall out and I'm only 32 wks so I am just a little jealous that your almost done. Iz will do great with her lil sis. It might take a day or two but she'll be fine. My friends little boy called his little sis dumb baby and pooh baby for 2 weeks but now he loves her.

  2. whoa... ryan got 3 weeks off?! Thats great
