(a late) 39 Weeks Preggers Update

My emotions are so mixed at this point.
I cannot wait to hold my baby boy in my arms, to quit being huge and miserable and pregnant.
I have yet to wrap my head around the fact that I will soon have two children!
My mom flew in late last Sunday night and we’ve had a wonderful week together! Monday was my 25th birthday and it was the best one I’ve had for years and years! To celebrate I slept in (yes that is a big deal, I’m relishing it while I still can!!) then it was lunch at Panera for just us girls (Me, mom, & Amber) then we came back and put Amber down for a nap and while Bob “babysat” me and my mom went and got mani/pedis. I was hoping it would put me into labor but no such luck! It was still wonderful though and we both had a great time, it was my mom’s first time ever having a pedicure! Opened gifts for both my birthday and baby Tyler throughout the day (always fun!) and dinner that night was Victoria Fillet and Snow Crab at Outback *heaven in my mouth* After putting Amber to bed (Bob “babysitting” again) me and Mom went and saw Eclipse. I was so excited–it was the first time I’d gotten to see a Twilight movie in the theater!
I had an absolutely *amazing* day!!!
Thursday was my Drs. apt. for my 39 week check up. I was thrilled to find out that the baby is super low and I’m 3 cm dilated! He said I would probably go into labor this weekend, which sadly hasn’t happened yet ūüôĀ I’m *praying* that today will be the day! If not I have an apt. tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. to see what’s happening and discuss a game plan. It sounded like the Dr. would like to have me go in tomorrow afternoon to get my water broken/start Pitocin but after what happened with Amber I don’t want to be induced!!! My feelings were reaffirmed this morning when I read this really good Induction 101 article! I’ve decided that I just really want to go into labor on my own this time and am determined to wait it out!
Everything has gotten a bit more complicated when it comes to waiting it out, however. Originally the plan was for my mom to stay till the 26th and Bob’s mom would fly in the 25th to take over baby watch duty. That way even if I was way late or way early we’d be covered. Bob’s dad had to have¬†quadruple bypass open heart surgery this past Monday.¬†He¬†is doing well although¬†he is still in the hospital and I would greatly appreciate your prayers for him!¬†Obviously this was a huge unexpected thing that made her change her plans. So¬†now we’re praying Tyler shows up early so that my mom can still leave when she originally planned to and not have to worry about the hassle of changing her flight or missing my sister-in-law’s baby shower.
Speaking of which after¬†going 13 days past her due date my little niece Evelynn finally¬†made her grand debut on July 13th!!!! It’s the first time I’m an aunt and I couldn’t be more thrilled! She’s gorgeous and both mommy and baby did great during labor and delivery. My brother said life is good but that they’re¬†very sleep deprived–ah¬†the joys of life with a newborn¬†:oD
So there’s the update¬†on all things Nicole!¬†I’m¬†hoping I will go into labor right…..NOW!
Ok…didn’t work! But I am very hopeful that one of the next entries will be announcing the birth of my little¬†boy! Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers!¬†
