Everything Except for the Baby



4 days until I am due...the baby ticker goes off how many weeks I am, not my actual due date. I am technically 40 weeks on Thursday but my doctor has my due date on the 18th. So I apologize for the confusion. I have been done with work since last Friday Oct. 3rd. All my friends who were due around the same time as me have already had their babies...so it has become very real to me now. In the meantime I have organized just about everything. And no I am not "Nesting" I just have nothing better to do with my time.

This is her closet...all the essentials...I think!


704 wipes + 296 diapers=10 days with a newborn baby (well pretty close, right?)


This is the other half of the nursery we hadn't completed with the previous post.


I have had mild Braxton Hicks contractions and pressure everynight, but I go to bed and wake up the next morning refreshed and full of energy. I have been walking everyday and even walked 4.5 miles yesterday. I have now come to the conclusion I will have to be induced, which if that is the case it will be either the 22nd or 23rd. There is a full moon tonight...any chance of it happening this hallowed evening?

I will cross my fingers for you that it will be on this hallowed evening. Don't get frusterated - you'll want her to be fully cooked so it's good for her to stay in a little bit. :) Any Braxton Hicks is good and getting you ready!! Her room is super cute and organized - can't wait until she's in it!

P.S. If you don't post a belly pic this week before she comes, will you at least take one so I can see it later? Love you!

It totally STINKS being a human timebomb. There is so much anticipation built up around an event with no real expected date and time! It's the ultimate test of patience. But since you aren't even due yet, just try to relax and remember that they won't let you be pregos forever - though speaking from experience, IT TOTALLY FEELS LIKE THAT.

On the bright side, the picture of her closet enlarged for me! The only one in this post and the one I most wanted to see bigger:) How cute. Seeing your ready nursery makes it a bit more real for me. How exciting! Yay!

Both my sisters left very good comments. Try and heed their counsel. You will NOT need to be induced! I still think it'll be real soon. The closet looks nice and stocked! Holy cow she has lots of super cute shoes! I say keep walking and enjoy this time as much as possible. You can never get it back. If you are looking for something to do, have you washed all her clothes? That was one of my favorite things when I was getting ready. Keep on keepin' on. Love you and if you think you can't wait...I seriously can't wait!!!

Hi can I be your daughter...that closet is amazing. She is a girl after my own heart already with that shoe collection, we are going to be great friends. I can't wait to see you guys next week and to meet your sweet baby girl. Don't worry she will be here before you know it. She is just being like her daddy, taking a long time to get ready! :) Keep us posted, we are thinking about you guys.

Don't get too discouraged....she could very well come before the 22nd! I am just waiting to hear about it any day now! p.s. I love love how organized you are. One of many favorite things about you. :)
