Ready, Set....Baby :)

Well we are a week away from our due date and I am scared to admit it but I think we are finally ready :)  My bag is packed, the car seat is in the car, the laundry is washed, the nursery is set up, Z's schedule is printed out and on the counter, his big brother gift and his gift to the baby are wrapped, the changing stations are set up......I think we are ready.  Now comes the hard part for me.....waiting.

I am a planner, I like to know when things are going to happen.  Surprises are nice but they are difficult to pull off when it comes to me......I like to know what is coming next.  Z was a day early (god love him) and so I didn't have to go through the "no baby yet?" calls and emails.  I am also afraid to be "wrong"....this means that I do not want to go to the hospital and be sent home.  They almost sent me home last time and I was very lucky that they didn't (I would have ended up delivering at home).  This time around, I do not want to go unless I am sure that I will get to stay, S on the other hand doesn't want to have the baby in the car or at home and so he would rather be safe than sorry! 

I have an ultrasound on Monday to once again check the growth of the baby (I am still measuring small and not growing at all now).  If the baby is not growing or there is a problem with my fluids, I might be induced this week.  If not, the waiting game begins.......I am going to have to find some things to do to keep busy :)

Go SWIMMING! That was my favorite thing to do in a warm indoor pool between Christmas and when my daughter was born January 9th. I was in the pool Friday and she was born Monday - so relaxing.

But, then I am a real water freak.

So excited for you that the wait is almost over! I'm with you I like to know when things are happening so I can plan and be prepared. That didn't work the first time (3 days late had to be induced) but did the second time (scheduled C-section). It was nice to know that once I got to the hospital I was there to stay! Good luck! I can't wait to see the little person!

You're talking to a woman whose first was 3 weeks late and second never dropped...having to be claimed in utero via C-section, almost 4 weeks after her due date...good luck!

So exciting! I hope everything is just fine according to your ultrasound Monday. Sounds like you're ready to go! I can't wait to hear all about it. Have a nice relaxing weekend in the meantime!

Oh boy, that last week(s) is LONG. Feels like the whole nine months crammed into 24 hours.

I think the swimming comment is a good one... I walked a lot but swimming sounds even better!
