Coming soon!

the baby.

My doc says I'm making progress. He doubts if I will make it to June 4th --which is the day we are planning to induce if Javie doesn't come on his own sooner. If any of you girls are interested in the condition of my cervix, I'll tell you. Didn't seem like something everyone would appreciate knowing...

My due date is June 6. I'm inducing early because I have big babies and big babies are harder to get out than little ones. And frankly, I'm just not up for any hard work these days. If he comes ON his due date based on my two other boys I will be getting an 8 lb. 12 oz. baby.

That's plenty big.

So, two days before that, I'm thinking 8 lb. 9 oz. We should have a contest: See who can guess the baby's birth weight. Leave your guess in the comment box.

But, back to Javie (the baby's womb name), looks like he will be here before two weeks and 2 days. My doc is going on vacation tomorrow. He'll be back Tuesday. He told me to try not to go into labor till then. We'll see. I've been having contractions (all irregular) for two weeks. This is the first time I've had Braxton Hick's contractions. I was excited at first, you know, to have a natural contraction that hasn't been brought on by castor oil or pitocin. Now I've decided that they are overrated. I can do without...

What does it say about me when I think, "Baby is coming soon I need to charge my ipod." Instead of "Baby is coming soon I need to pack my bag, get the car seat out of the attic and set up the baby bed."

No worries. The ipod is now charged!

I'm also going to try to get a load of clothes folded and put away. Mike has been out of the loop for a while and may not know where everything goes. I've been trying to think of other things that he would appreciate me getting done before labor.

I think I'll go dig out the baby book and start packing my bag. I'll try to put pictures on here as soon as the little guy comes out. I'd appreciate your prays for an easy labor and a healthy boy.

Just relax and enjoy your last few days as a family of four. All that other stuff will still be there after Jarvie gets here.
