It's A Date!

Well we've received the official word! I'll be making my final trek as a miserable pregnant woman November 12th at 8:00 pm to MethodistHospital to get the induction going. They aren't going to actually give me pitocin to start contractions until the morning of the 13th, so I'm planning on that being the big day! I am now 1 cm dilated which isn't much, but it's better than nothing and every centimeter is going to matter when they induce me! My blood pressure still has days where it is really high so I am still on bedrest until the big day. We now have about 12 days to finish everything...didn't seem like there was much left to do until we had a date set, now it seems like there isn't enough time to do everything! Still waiting for Shawn to caulk and paint the chair rail before I post pictures of the nursery, but that will definitely be done this weekend or next. That's it for now unless this little gal decides to come sooner than we have planned for her to!

The Waiting Game

Well this isn't much of an update because there isn't much to update. Still on bedrest and still having very high blood pressure. I'm 36 weeks now and 1/2 cm dilated, so the doctor told me we will be inducing Novermber 12th or 13th. It's nice to finally have it narrowed down. The only reason we would induce earlier is if my blood pressure goes up and won't come back down...poor Aunt Rachel has shingles right now so we're hoping I can hold out for another 2 1/2 weeks so that she can recover and actually be around Lorelai! The days seem to pass pretty quickly right now, however I don't sleep much so the nights drag on and on! I'm loving this weather, though...I usually go and lay on our swing outside for a little while each day to get some fresh air. Well hopefully next time I update I will have something more exciting. Shawn is going to try to finish Lorelai's room this weekend since I'm not allowed to, so hopefully I can post some pics pretty soon.
'til then...

House Arrest!!

Sorry It's been so long since my last post (does anyone even read this??) but It's been a crazy past couple of weeks...I had my last 2 showers given by my friends at my old work Westside Dental Center and by Shawn's family. Both were Great and I got everything that we will need for little Lo, so we're very excited and grateful! On other news....I had to make a trip to the hospital for a few hours on Sunday due to high blood pressure...they ran a bunch of tests and they all came out normal, no preclampsia for now, but since it's staying kinda high I have been ordered to stay on "modified bedrest." Basically I don't have to be in bed but I cannot leave the house until Lorelai comes. grrrr. The doctor is planning on inducing me one week early now so we're hoping for an arrival date of November 15th which still seems so far from now. So any emails and contact with the outside world is greatly appreciated! I'll try to post pics of what we've done to the nursery soon.
