Did you see the countdown on the side of the page? We are down to 30 days! It is really unbelievable! 30 days until my due date!
Back in August, when we found out we were pregnant, it seemed as though April was SO FAR AWAY! But we also knew it would go quickly...it always does. It seems as though it is all a blur. We made it through David's induction period, the Ian started school, the holidays came and went and now, here we are!
I am down to doing weekly appointments at this point. When I went in earlier this week, I found out that I am dilated to nearly 1cm. That is to be expected with the 3rd baby. It shouldn't be any indication of him making his appearance early.
As a matter of fact, I have been having some very serious talks with the little man about when he is allowed to make his appearance. As anxious as I am about seeing him, holding him and introducing him to his big brother and sister, I also have a plan! My mom (a.k.a. My Personal Labor and Delivery nurse!) will be flying into town on April 10th! He must wait until she can get here or else he is going to have some serious explaining to do! My other motivation for getting that far is that Ian's Spring Break is the week before my due date and I would really like to have that time with the kids to do a few fun things and just enjoy each other without the whole week being consumed by the activities of having a new baby. Don't get me wrong, the kids are both VERY excited about this new little guy, but they have also gotten a little clingy and needy lately. I am sure it has every bit to do with the baby situation, whether they know it or not.
So, if you think of it, please say a quick prayer for us. We are all facing a LOT of transition! We are doing our best to make it enjoyable for everyone involved! All in all, we know that this new little man is going to add a ton of joy to our lives and we can hardly wait!
