So today was my last appointment before Toren is born. It went really well, no issues. They said I'm 3 to 4 cm dilated and could go any day now but my induction is set for 5 am (central time) on 1/2/14. They told me Toren is about 9 lbs 3 ounces and in the 99th percentile. I think his head is 97th percentile or something like that if I'm remembering correctly. I can't even begin to describe how excited I am! I've cried 3 times today already. I'm such an emotional mess, but in a good way. My hormones are going crazy right now that's for sure

Oh! My doctor told me the only thing I can really do to help my labor be quicker and easier is to have sex and LOTS of it (but he mentioned since I'm 3 to 4 cm dilated he thinks I'm going to "rock this delivery" anyways). I told DH. We shall see what happens. He's still all paranoid about it, but maybe I can talk him into a little bit of gentle intimacy.

So here is the last picture until sometime on Jan 2nd!!! Toren had his hands up by his face. I'm pretty sure he's going to be a thumb sucker. Reminds me of the conversation we had about those little hand mitts. I said that's something I never did end up buying because I didn't know if I needed them. Well, Toren always has his hands in his face so I imagine he's going to be a face-scratcher. I think I will do what Kayla mentioned and use socks with the outfits that don't have the built in hand mitts





Eeeeeek!!!

Yes.... use socks... I hate those dang mittens. They did nothing. I know socks look silly but they work so much better.

January 2? That is 3 days away! Hooray for you! Soon you will be holding that cute boy. I do agree with the sex thing. I was 3-4 cen dilated with Ava and I truly believe if I had sex she would of came right now. Now granted we didnt... and my water broke at home 2 days later BUT I feel that would of helped. So tell DH to get busy. Have a New Years Baby!

We had 2 c sections and 10 inductions scheduled at work today because everyone wanted their baby born before the year was up. I dont know where its like where you live but I work tonight and New Years Eve into New Years Day and the first baby born in the new year at our hospital gets this huge gift basket. Its fun. I think a New Year baby would be cute. It will be fun to see the first baby.

Good luck!

Ohhhhh Ame! Gosh I can't believe it is here already! 3-4 CM, that's CRAZY! You've almost done half the work already, LOL. Eat some pineapple, take a walk, DTD! Get on the birth ball, have some spicy Mexican -- or forget all that and take a LONG nap!

He looks great... Can't wait to see his beautiful face for real! ((Hugs))

LOL you girls...

I guess the contractions I get off and on HAVE done something for me this week. I'm thinking the exam I had last Monday from the other doctor is what kick started all this. I'm pretty sure I ended up losing most or all of my mucus plug because of that cervical check.

DH is going to get it tonight whether he likes it or not!
I think it would be neat to have the first baby born on new years BUT it seems like it would be so easy for a dr to do with a csection. Just watch their clock and make it happen pretty much the second it's midnight.

Oh at our hospital it cannot be by c section or induction. It has to be first spontaneous labor and delivery or everyone would do that! Haha

yay!! Good Luck with getting some from DH. When I was 3 cm dialated with Jacob my DH refused to have sex with me until after Jacob was born. I think he was afraid that somehow my water would break in the middle or something plus he was always convinced that it would break and we wouldn't make it to the hospital in time. I think this time I won't tell him how dialated I am near the end so maybe I can still get a little before our baby boy is born.

I think your labor will be fast. I was 3 cm dialated with Jacob and my dr broke my water around 10:00. he did a slow leak so it didn't all gush out at once and then Jacob was born at 12:33. My body was really ready just needed that push from the water breaking so hopefully yours will go quickly and smoothly.

you are Toren are in my prayers. I know that all will go wonderfully and I can't wait to see you holding that beautiful baby boy. My eyes get misty just thinking about it.

My two cents is that all the sex, walking, Mexican, etc won't do a thing until your body is ready. I did all that I could when I was overdue and it didn't do anything except wear me out. Then when I was doing nothing, I was dilating but didn't actually go into real labor (before, it was just random crampy feelings) until they broke my water at 5.5 cm.
