Summer's Online Pregnancy Diary
Well, as of right this minute, that's where we stand. Just days away from meeting our little boy. Tomorrow we pick up my mother in law, who is excited beyond words, as are my parents.There's not much to report, other than the last two visits indicate that I am effaced, but not dilated. Next appointment is on the due date. I've been feeling him get lower and lower and I am having some contractions at night it seems. So I'm really hoping that this will have done something down there.
I think I am going to check in to Acupuncture as well. Not only as an induction (if needed), but because I've read alot of good labor stories from women who did just before labor or even while in labor. Hmmm.
We are really hoping that he comes before my best friend has to leave on a trip. She will be leaving the country for over a month and was able to postpone it as much as she could. We now know that he is pretty much waiting till his grandma comes - so he's agreed to part of the deal. Now, he just needs to agree to the 2nd part - come within the next 6 days!
We are all ready to go. No surprise there. We've been ready for quite sometime. I'm assuming I did my last grocery shopping trip before he comes, my last pedicure, my last car wash and last house clean. But, then again, it could be another 2 weeks. But, at least not longer than that.
It is so amazing that in days I will see this little boy and probably not be able to imagine life without him. My husband and I feel such a special bond with this tiny person and yet we've never seen him. I can feel his little parts inside and I love to just hold my belly and imagine what it will be like to first touch him and look into his eyes.
Here's to hoping my next entry is the birth story...
