Liam’s Arrival

May 17th, 2010

Still playing the waiting game.  If the little guy doesn’t arrive this week we are set to induce Sunday night.  So we could be welcoming little Liam next Monday…if things go smoothly.

Early Labor???

May 11th, 2010

So last night I couldn’t sleep a wink. Total discomfort!  Even kept Joe awake! An then this morning while we were at the doctors office I started feeling REALLY BAD.  Doc says it is early labor and ordered me home to rest and drink lots of fluids.  She says that it could be today or the next few days but that everything pointed to early labor and that I just needed to monitor my contractions until they were a minute long and five minutes apart for an hour.  At home now…and only one contraction every few hours.  So…back to the waiting game!

Nursery Update

May 6th, 2010

Have been getting several questions on the nursery.  At this time it is still a work in progress.  I was inspired by our trip last year to Morocco.  So with a help of a designer friend *Shelby* I am working to bring this idea to life.  Little did I know that the fabric we ordered from India is custom made for each order, and due to some volcano and other crazy cultural things, we just got the fabric. So that put everything in the room on hold, bed, tent, etc. YES we are going to have a tent! It will be installed next Wednesday. But the bed will most likely not arrive until the end of the month.  No worries, because we planned on keeping him in a bassinet the first few weeks anyway. Once the room is complete I will be sure to post some images…it is going to be amazing!! Can’t wait!!

38 Week Doc Appt

May 5th, 2010

Ok…so I am officially READY!  He is in place and we are moving along it is just a waiting game at this point. Have been getting a few kicks to the rib area lately (NO FUN!).  It’s obviously a little crowded in there.  Doc says it could be today or the due date…no help there!  Wish there was more of a science to this labor thing. Makes me anxious just not knowing!
