Times Up

Today is my due date. Apparently our baby does not have an Outlook calendar or BlackBerry to let he/she know that it is now time to be welcomed into the world.
We made it through the wedding last weekend where Kevin was the Best Man, that was our "goal" to get through that so Kevin could be part of his friend Dave's big day. Now we are even more anxious for the baby to be born. With everything "done" we are very excited for what will happen within the week.
I will see my doctor on Thursday where I will have an ultrasound to see just how big this tiny baby is and to then set an induction date for early next week. This is all of course if nothing happens in between all of that. I am still hoping to go into labor and avoid being induced, but by next week it will just be time.
Kevin referred to me as a "ticking time bomb." I suppose this is true, we just don't know yet when it is going to happen. So exciting.

Week 39

Here we are well into week 39. :) Today brings another visit to the doctor to see if I've progressed anymore and to double check that I'm ok to travel for the wedding this weekend. Last week she said I'd be fine, "You'd get back in time." So today we will check again. Since Kevin is the best man it would be nice if we could have the baby anytime after Saturday. But we realize we aren't really in control of that yet.....

At my last appointment my doctor said that if I didn't have the baby by my due date, Tuesday, she'd set a date to induce for that same week. So it looks like nature or doctor will have the baby here by about next week at this time.

Because life is going to be changing I thought it would be nice for Anglica and I to spend some time just the two of us hanging out doing girl stuff. We spent last weekend having lunch at the American Girl Doll store, running around the Mall of America, shopping, carving pumpkins, baking... you name it. A…

There's a carseat in my car

This weekend Kevin and I closed out our registry at Babies R Us which meant purchasing the remaining items that we still needed. The "need" list included the car seat and stroller. After hearing what a pain car seats were to install we thought for sure it would take us a while to get it in there. But much to our delight, it was a snap! My car has the handy dandy hooks in each backseat which the car seat base simply hooks into. After making sure it was level we were all set in no time at all.
We also got to spend part of Saturday watching our friends' daughter. She is absolutely a pleasure to have at our house! She plays, she naps, she eats, she plays some more... really a great little girl. Plus she got to test out the baby's room to make sure it was "ok" for the baby. :) We think she approves.
