The Stork is Coming!

I decided to post this on my blog instead of Facebook because my dearest friends & family read my blog...hopefully :)

Today was Talmage's due date and it just wasn't his time :( but I did go to the doctor this morning and I am dilated to a 4, 100% effaced. Our doctor thinks its best if I am induced TOMORROW! I check into the hospital at 11:00 am and it will most likely take the full day to deliver. I haven't had any real contractions, so I have no idea what to expect. But Jonathan and I are *super excited to get this show on the road.

To be honest, I actually prefer this approach. I feel calmer knowing WHEN I am going to the hospital and WHEN I get to see my son. Playing the waiting game is the worst thing ever. Today was really wonderful because I could prepare myself for whats to come...Jonathan spoiled me with some things we won't be able to do for a while. We went to Great Harvest for lunch and saw that dragon movie and had lots of candy :) When we got home we took a short catnap and for dinner we had some good warm soul food. And even though it snowed this morning, the sun managed to come out and melt most of it away! It is a good omen!

So, tonight I will practice wrapping the Moby properly, rearranging a few baby things, organizing Talmage's room, preparing my hospital bag, and taking a nice hot shower. I'm waking up at 9 to clean the house (it may be the last chance I get for a while). Don't worry, I won't wear myself out too much :)

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not much longer now!
