So, here’s a brief update on Miss Bailey. I had my 39 week appointment yesterday and let’s just say (I don’t want to gross you all out too much) that I’m to the point of “progression” that when I was like this with Ty, I was well into labor and in the hospital. The good news about that is, I have less work to do once I do go into labor and that means it “should” be that much shorter! Yay!
I have one more week left at work, next Friday is my last “planned” day. My next Dr.’s appt is next Friday, when I will be 2 days shy of my due date. My awesome Dr. did say that if I made it that far, then we would pick an induction date a few days into the following week, so somewhere around the 16th through the 18th. I’m just REALLY happy to have an end in sight. That at least in the next week and a half, we WILL have this baby here!
I’ve pretty much convinced myself that it will come down to an induction, but my Dr. seems to think that I’ll go on my own before my next appointment, so stay close, it could be any time now. I’m having a lot of contractions, but they really aren’t amounting to much of a pattern or pain, so until they do, we can’t get too excited.
I honestly wouldn’t mind if she waits a few more days anyway. Ty had a nasty cold all of last weekend and surprise, surprise, guess who got it! So, I’m congested as all get out and feel like crap. And frankly, I can’t even imagine how miserable labor would be feeling like this, so I’m happy for her to hold off a while longer.
So, that’s about it for now. When the time does come, I’ll probably be able to update easiest through Twitter which feeds to Facebook, so check there for updates!
Of course no post would be complete without a photo or two, so here are some that Ty let me take last weekend. I was practicing after my last photography class last week and playing with my new reflector I got. I really tried to get good focus on his eyes and make sure they were nice and sharp, I was pretty happy with how these turned out (despite the fact he was really uncooperative and in his jammies, but you take what you can get, right?!)
