Come On Down...

Today marks the start of Week 38. April 7th is fast approaching and we have actually gotten majority of our to-do list done. Nick has picked out Baby's first photo and "coming home" outfits. All we need to do now is pack our hospital bag. With the nursery being completed this past weekend, we're just waiting for our bundle to arrive. I've already found myself just sitting in the nursery relaxing. Mrs. Stephanie did a wonderful job.

Our weekly checkups continue this week and I hope to be a little further along than last week. We were only 1 cm dialated and 50% effaced. Honestly though, I feel like I need an epidural just for these checkups...thanks alot for the warning! Our induction date is already scheduled for April 15th, just in case he doesn't (like on The Price Is Right) "Come on down!!" We'll see what the good doc has to say on Wednesday and I'll keep you posted.

Thank You

All I can say today is that Nick and I are completely humbled by all the love, support, prayers, and well wishes we received this weekend for the baby shower. The gifts were pretty fantastic too!

Extended Vacay

Its been a while since our last post and everything is well. For those of you that didn't know, our doctor did give us the go ahead to take our pre-baby getaway. She did say, however, after this trip, that's it. Well the funny thing is, as I'm typing this blog entry, we're stuck in New Orleans due to inclement weather. We were schedule to return to Nashville Sunday morning, but flights out of Atlanta were cancelled. So, here we are at the Radisson in New Orleans, waiting for our flight tonight. There were a ton of delays because of the snow, and one could only pray that tonight we'll be safe and sound in our own bed. Luckily I did purchase the trip insurance that will cover our extra expenses.

This week marks our 35th week and we are anxiously anticipating our son's arrival. For me, I'm really curious to see what he looks like. Nick's family has some distinctive traits, so I'm not counting on him looking like me. We still have some last minute things on our to-do list. Our next post should have photos from the shower and some family photos that Nick and I took a couple of weeks ago. See ya...
