Sorry but I will not be posting Junior's real name on my Blog. For those of you who want to know his real name and who are not on my email notification list, please leave a message in your comment and I'll get back to you as soon as I can :o)

Thank you for being patient with me! I've received many wonderful emails that I just haven't had the time to respond to. I never knew I could be so engrossed in something else other than cross stitch ;o) LOL! Hopefully as we find our new rhythm, I'll get to steal a few minutes and post about our new adventure.

The Final Countdown

We're in the homestretch now! Seven more days until my actual due date but I want this over with NOW! Please, please, please! I really shouldn't complain since most of my pregnancy has been a good one but I think it's time for the hotel to close and for Junior to move out ;o)

Since my last post, we've had two appointments and Junior has passed his tests with flying colors. I think our boy is going to be an A-1 student ;o) We got an ultrasound picture of his sweet little face last Thursday but unfortunately due to my limitations, I haven't been able to scan it so I can't share it with you all :o( I guess that just means you'll have to wait for a real picture!

Last week the doctor did an exam and told us that I was dilated the thickness of a fingernail but that my cervix was very thin (good thing). Junior has also dropped into my pelvis and was in a -1 position. For those of you not familiar with this (we had to look it up), hopefully this picture will give you a better idea -


The doctor also stated that she won't let me go much over my due date. I'm not thrilled about being induced but I sure would like this over with. The anticipation is killing us! Our next appointment is tomorrow afternoon. We have our bags packed and they will be coming with us just in case. Fingers crossed we won't be coming home ;o)

I'm getting quite shack wacky though because I've officially given up driving. It seems that driving aggravates my chest pain (muscular skeletal), along with a lot of other things, so I'm pretty much a couch potato now. Let me tell you, there is a lot of crap on daytime TV! LOL! At least I can still stitch and that's been keeping my mind off of things. Of course I'm WAY behind on my Blog posts so you haven't seen what I've been up to. DH is just as frustrated as I am. We're both anxious to meet this sweet little boy :o)

Just a warning...if I drop out of contact, I'm either too tired to respond to emails or Junior has finally arrived. I'm not on the computer very much anymore so I'm very behind in emails and Blog reading, although I am trying to do a bit of both when I feel up to it. I'll try to keep everyone as updated as I can and as quickly as I can. Thank you for all the wonderful and supporting comments my friends :o)
