Its October … whoa!
I realized tonight that the baby will be here really soon! I’ve been watching the weeks tick by slowly for months now and it always seemed sooooo far away, but tonight I realize, its not that far away at all!! Now that its October, its only a matter of a couple of weeks (hopefully) before she’s here!
This afternoon, my doctor’s office called to give me an update on our balance. She said she spoke to the doctor and its only expected that I’ll be seen TWO MORE TIMES before I deliver … that means Thursday, then next week… wow. I expect, though, that I’ll be seen more than that. I really doubt I’ll go before my induction date, which is still set for October 23. I keep saying I’m not lucky enough to go into labor on my own before that. I think that if I didn’t schedule an induction, I’d be one of those “lucky” (HA) ones that goes 2 weeks past due! LOL
We are definitely prepared, though … at least physically. Our car seat was just purchased for us (thank you SO MUCH Ms. Tammy and Craig!) … so I can rest easy there. But another thought occurred to me tonight … I need to get our hospital bags packed! There are a few things I need to pick up for our hospital stay, so I’ll maybe do that tomorrow, then hopefully get my bag, the diaper bag and Hayden’s suitcase packed in the next day or two.
Other than that I’m still not sleeping well, am getting frequent indigestion and my patience is still running pretty low these days. The baby still moves quite a bit, though I can’t figure out how she has room in there. She’s been getting hiccups on a daily basis and we can’t get Hayden to call her anything but “Pickles.” Poor thing, that will probably be her nickname for life!!
