He tried to make another attempt

Yesterday I thought might be the day! But it luckily was not. I had been having contractions all day, I finally decided to go into the labor and delivery at the hospital to get checked before I drove the hour ride home (trying to avoid having a baby in the car experience)! I was having contractions 3 minutes apart and my cervix was at a 3 ( up from a 1 last week). They will admit you when your cervix is at a 4 so they suggested I walk for 2 hours and come back to be checked. So I walked and walked, did wonders for my sciatic pain (sarc). I had already let Carlos and Maria know what was happening and they decided it was best to get on a plane now instead of wait and possibly miss his birth. I let them know I might not have him today, it all depended on my cervix. But they felt it was best to come early and be here then miss his birth! So after walking I go get rechecked and nothing! No change to my cervix at all! Aggghhhh
Can I just say here and now trying to figure out when a baby is coming is THE hardest thing to figure out. So I am sent home. At this point Carlos and Maria are on their way and I am hoping we won't have to wait two weeks for him to be born, but I have no control over this ( mantra I repeat to myself)!
So today as I write this I am barely moving around, in fear he will play a trick on us and come only hours before his parents arrive. Once they are here tonight I can walk/ run/ dance/do hip hop (ok that's just a dream :)

I will keep you all updated,

Hang in there little guy!

The countdown has begun! I am 37 weeks and a few days and am so happy I have made it this far. I had a little scare at 34 weeks but thankfully he wasn't fully committed to entering the world yet!

Last week I had a high blood pressure situation. Thankfully after a day of tests I don't have high blood pressure at all. ( I told them it has to be that my daughter has just started to drive and I'm a nervous wreck about it!) The upside of all the tests is I got to hear the little guy and see him real quick in an ultrasound. So sweet.

So yes I am very happy to make it this far, considering at this point if he comes he should be healthy and should not have to spend any time in the NICU.

BUT now the challenge is for him to wait till his momma and daddy arrive. 10 days!!! Come on baby hang in there!

Still waddling along!

Hi All
Yes I am still pregnant! 5 weeks to go! Wow is that it? I can not believe it is almost over ( sad face). Yes I truly am one of those crazy women who enjoys being pregnant. I can actually let my stomach muscles relax and let it all 'hang out' and you can't even tell ;)  And at this point the lil guy is like an alien creature moving around inside me, so it's pretty fun to guess what he is trying to move as it scrapes along my insides. Weird but totally cool and indiscribable!

I wish I could say this pregnancy has been a breeze, well it has for the most part except for my Kankles ( ankles and feet the size of small elephants) that pop up more often then not.  The good news is it makes me sit ( obviously not sit and update my blog though ;) which I hardly do. Since my phone seems to be in my hand more often then my computer, I have decided to blog from my phone ( which I am by the way!)

So little guys baby brother is doing great on the other side of the world, if you have no idea what I'm talking about read my last post. Names are picked and the travel plans for the mom and dad are all set. They will be here Oct 3 till early Nov. So now to make sure this little guy doesn't want to make an escape before then.

Picture to follow soon!
