I just got home from the OB where he told me I am 2 cm dilated and 70% effaced. Baby is getting close. He said she could come tonight or in a couple more weeks. I was induced with the boys so this is really exciting because I have never really "gone into labor". Although, I was dilated to 4 for weeks with 2 of the boys so it may still be a while. God knows. I want the movie version this time (meaning I say, "honey, I think it is time" and Tim freaks out and we jump in a stolen taxi because our car won't start and drive really fast over lots of San Francisco hills. Then Tim wheels me in as I am breathing through contractions JUST in time to deliver in the hospital. Oh, and mom needs to be pregnant and delivering at the same time.) LOL. C'mon, mom!!! My OB says it may not happen exactly like that. :)
I am uncomfortable and not sleeping well these days. My pelvic bones are screaming.
But, I am not in a hurry to have her because of all the sickness going around these days. So, we will wait on God's perfect timing for our little girl to arrive.
Tim is not the best "birthing coach". He keeps making me watch this clip on youtube because he wants me to get an epidural...
I am trying to get thank you notes written, keep my legs shaved and my house clean just in case we have to run out of here. I am still going to attempt to do this whole thing naturally. I am scared out of my mind and totally unprepared but am going to give it my best shot. I told Tim to just knock me out with a 2x4 if it gets really bad.
I had a beautiful shower on Sunday that was over-the-top amazing. I can't believe people will actually continue to come to my baby showers! I have had quite a few but this one was really special because of the color... pink! And because of God's faithfulness in my life.
I got some gorgeous gifts...
That is my mom and me opening, washing and folding. That was a job! This baby can change clothes 10 times a day... until she is 3 months old and then she is out of luck. I am sure she won't go naked! Lol. I am getting into this whole "shopping for girl's clothes" thing.
My gorgeous friend Suzy. She is miraculously single. We are pretty sure Tim Tebow is her husband. :)
I will keep you updated! Please be praying for my health as I walk into this very uncharted territory. The doctors are doing some different things this time and we are praying that they will work and I won't get insanely sick again. But, God is with me and He upholds me by my right hand. I will fear no evil for He is with me.
I will try and have Tim do updates when I go into labor! Stay tuned!!
Love all you out there in blogville!
