Hey Anna, no baby yet but thanks for checking! We are still trying to decide whether induction is the best path or not... I got very emotional about it yesterday and have been having a lot of doubts about whether to induce or not. I don't have to decide till tomorrow afternoon, but I'm the kind of person who can't stop thinking about the issues until I've made a decision. so we are going to try to balance remaining chores with rest today and tomorrow and try to make the best decision we can.
On a lighter note, to distract myself I went to see breaking dawn with friends yesterday, it was great!
Quick update for now and then if I can, I will post a better one tomorrow. Looks like we will be going ahead with induction tomorrow night (to hospital)/Tuesday morning they will start pitocin and break water. I'm praying this is the right decision. He is getting so big and shows no sign of planning to come out on his own. My dr. does not want me going past my due date, and this is the only scheduling of induction that is possible before then, given thanksgiving falling Thursday. So, even though it's not my favorite option, it seems to be the best thing to do at this point. We hope to get admitted to the hospital before too late at night - dr said she expects it to be a zoo and who knows what time they will get us a room...just my luck! but praying it goes smoothly. Also praying he comes quickly once she breaks my water - that got things going last time, and I'm hoping this being a second baby it will go faster!
Okay, that is all the news from here for now. More updates to follow as I'm able! Please keep us all in your prayers!
Checking in as I lay on my couch. Angela for what it's worth I think you're making the right decision. Fingers crossed you get a room and things are not too chaotic. What a great Thanksgiving present!!!
AFM, why am I laying on my couch you ask, well last night I got Josephine's stomach bug, only the word bug makes it seem small. I think it should be called a stomach horse, or stomach Kimono dragon. It's been a long time since I've been that sick. There was a brief point lying on the bathroom floor where I thought I might actually die. Ok melodramatic I know buy man oh man. Thank God DH got home from his boys weekend about an hour before it hit and could take care of Jo. If it had hit on Saturday I don't know what I would have done with the baby!!
Anyhoo, on the road to recovery, but taking the morning off work.
Hope everyone had a good weekend and I promise to get to the house photos soon!!
Angela - you are in my prayers, my dear. Hope all goes smoothly and you get to meet your little one Real soon without the induction, but if that is needed, then I pray and am sure all will go well.
Many hugs and love!
To everyone else, I promise a proper post later tonight or in the AM. Getting over a sinus/cold/thingy and today is a tough day for me as it is the anniversary of the passing of my very best friend for over 20 years. She died from complications of skin cancer. So it's a tough day. hugs to you all. thinking of her really makes me appreciate the good people in my life - you all are a part of that!
Angela - You and baby are in my prayers and I will be smiling tonight when I go to bed thinking that you will be holding your new baby shortly (remember there is a 3 hour time difference!).
Anna - Oh no! I am so sorry that you are sick. So glad that your hubby was there before it got bad. Well, you can look at it as a blessing, you can use the bug as an excuse not to eat your mom's cooking LOL. But seriously I hope that you get better and are able to enjoy your Thanksgiving.
Beth - it is so good to hear from you. Sorry to hear about your best friend. I know that must be difficult. My thoughts are with you today. Me and my fam are also getting over a cold. Still have a hacking cough. I definitely want to hear what you are planning on making for Thanksgiving and would LOVE to take a peak at some of your recipes!
AFM - Well, Katelyn is doing a bit better and only getting up twice in the night. My husband is getting the first shift and then I do the second one. So that has been nice. She still gets up at 6am and is pretty much up and ready to play. So my I am up with her. It is good as I am starting to do a bit of exercising in the morning. Hoping to do more, but it is hard with toddler and two dogs following you around at every move LOL. I am so excited about Thanksgiving and then CHRISTMAS!!!! I plan on decorating my casa on Friday and I have most of the gifts for my nieces and nephews already. Yesterday, My MIL called to tell us about a Kitchen at a nearby Consignment store so we gathered in my hubby's truck it was more than 1/2 off! It also came with tons of pans, pots, food, utensils, etc. That will be Katelyn's big gift. I figure we would get one or two additional items and 3 or 4 small things and that is all she needs (probably more than enough!). Well I have a mandatory meeting to go to. Will check back later.
