December is just flying by, which means my due date is coming up soon! I’ve been having a lot of contractions lately, and it seems like I fall asleep pretty much every time I sit or lay down “for just a second,” but that is pretty normal for me at this stage. Between my last appointment and this week’s appointment, I progressed to 2cm and 50% effaced… I was pretty excited about that, until I looked back at this post and noticed that I was at 3cm a whole week before Rose was born!
Nevertheless, after having a hard time making it through Mass this morning due to some more strong contractions (which died down after a couple hours), I came home determined to make the time to wash the baby blankets, baby clothes, and start packing my bag to take to the hospital… Just as soon as I finish the other 10 loads that have piled up in the laundry room… and get ready for tomorrow’s Little Flowers Meeting… and… 😉
In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to host another Online Baby Pool, like we did for Rose. To help you out, I’ve listed all of our other children’s birth statistics.
So, when do you think this little guy is going to arrive?
P.S. If you have any “nickname” suggestions for this blog, I’d love to hear them too! At this point I am thinking about using either “Bud” (since it sounds so perfect after Rose, and they were both due at Christmas-time), or “Little Man” which is the theme for a Baby Shower/Celebration that a sweet friend is planning for after his arrival. Any other ideas? As for his real name… We still haven’t decided on that either! 🙂
