Don't really have a lot to update on, unfortunately. I'm due Oct. 15 and have no signs of being anywhere near labor! You'd think with this being number 4 I'd go into labor a little easier. I've been on maternity leave from the hospital since Wed. Everyone thought it was a good idea for me to go ahead and go since our patients have been particularly dangerous lately. They surprised me with a shower and a ton of awesome food! Very nice surprise! I've done everything I can imagine around the house and have played with trucks per Dax's insistence until I'm numb, lol! I need to go into labor already!
Oh yeah, I scored big time yesterday! I stopped at a friend's yardsale and they were tired of yardsaling so they told me I could take everything for $50 if I wanted it. Of course I couldnt say no to that, lol! I got more than any kid needs in clothes for the baby until she's 18 mo. old. I spent yesterday separating into sizes, washing and putting it in storage bins. I also got a pink bumbo and wipe warmer in the mix. Everything looks new considering their kid couldnt have wore it more than a few times and the majority is from baby Gap and Old Navy. I'm obviously still amazed with the deal, lol! I've also finally finished the nursery with the exception of a pink rug (Cyndee, I need Maddie's lol) So now, I continue to wait.....
The last 2 weeks really drags but it's important to hold your patience and stay busy, which it sounds like you are. I got the pink rugs at Target. Emptied the piggy banks to afford them but she needs a place to play in her room and they are perfect. Good luck! I'm going to guess Oct 8th at 6:45pm, 7lbs 14oz, 20in long.
I was 39 weeks with Dax but I was induced due to my sugar levels getting out of control. I was already dialated 2 then though. My next appt is Wed. so hopefully he'll check me so I'll have some idea where I'm at. As for names, we havent officially picked one! Dh likes Caitlyn Nichole but I like names that are a little different so I dont know.
Thanks for thinking of us! I spent so much time wondering how different having a girl would be after 3 boys, but she's so perfect I cant imagine ever being without her. I'll try to give you the whole birth story tonight or tomorrow after her first dr appt.
