Baby updates

On Monday I had my 38 week checkup. I'm at a 2 which is really good for me. Usually I'm nothing or a 1 right until I go into labor. The doctor wants to induce me on Sunday since I'll be 39 weeks by then and he thinks it'll be easier. But I'm holding out. I don't have a record of going over my due date and I HATED having pitocin with Kevin. It made the whole labor experience really hard and NOT a fun challenge.

Plus I really am in no hurry to have this baby. To prove my point, my water actually leaked a bit an hour after my checkup on Monday and I called the nurse and asked if I could just "ignore" it unless contractions started or I had a major break. haha So here I am still at home with no new changes. Jeff's been calling me the girl who cried wolf. My mom's coming up Thursday so that's when I'll mop the kitchen floor and vacuum and see if that sets me off. Until then, I'm teaching Joy School on Thursday and just puttering around the house with laundry and such.

Getting ready...

So I overdid it a few days ago with cleaning, shopping, and exercising so of course that night I had lots of contractions. But instead of getting all excited I thought "shoot, I'm not ready yet." This is the first time where I want this baby to wait as long as possible to come. It's probably because I don't' know what we're having but I've been putting off so many things. I finally stocked up on newborn diapers, wipes, and soaps. Got the Christmas tree taken down on Sunday. (this was more because the boys were so sad to have the decorations gone than me being lazy . . . kind of.) Tracked down the infant car seat.

I still have to get some boy/girl hospital outfit and do we even have a name? haha So I scramble to get some things done, then crash and sleep the next day, then repeat. I can't tell if I'm nesting or doing things out of desperation. Anyways, that's what I've been up to lately.
