No News...

Well, here we are at 38 weeks! I went to the doctor yesterday, and unfortunately was left with no real news to speak of... I was frustrated.

Everyone has been saying that I should have a bag packed and be ready to go, just in case.. well last weekend I did just that. I packed my bag, Allie's bag, charged the cameras, etc. Every day this week when I've left work, I've tried to leave with everything neatly wrapped up, just in case that could be my last day. I have found that to be exhausting and frustrating. How do you stay ready to go at any moment, but stay patient at the same time? I don't have the answer to this. I am a planner. It is at times like these when I think you just have to throw those instincts out the window. I've decided to just mentally prepare for her arrival to come on May 22nd. The doctor said yesterday that she doesn't think she will come on her own before then, so we've scheduled the induction.

Two weeks.

I guess that's not so bad in the grand scheme of things.

The good news is that she put me on "half duty" at work starting Monday. I think this will help! And it is exciting to know that at the very most, we will just have to wait two more weeks to meet our little one!

  1. 2 weeks... piece of cake! (you can be sure and remind me of this when I'm 9 months pregnant)

  2. i think you're doing the right thing by mentally preparing for the 22nd. if she comes before then, then everything will fall into place without any trouble, but if not, we're under two weeks now!! can't wait to meet her!
