we're making progress!

we went to our 39 week appointment, and finally progress has been made. i am currently 1 cm dialated (or 1 inch as patrick would say) and 75% effaced. although i was hoping they would just roll me over to the hospital and deliver this baby, that wasn't the case. the doctor did say he would be here soon (obviously), and don't be surprised if he comes a few days after my due date.

the only problem with all this, is the fact that last night can be recorded as my worst night during this pregnancy. i noticed my contractions starting to hurt yesterday evening, and as the night went on they became even more painful. so i was pretty much up all night laying in the deep pit that my body has formed in our bed. oh well...hopefully labor is close. if not, i can stick it out one more week...i think.

just wanted everyone to know that i am still with child...
i feel like each day just drags on and on.
i'm trying to stay as busy as i can by:

sleeping (a lot)
but, it's not helping.
i'm so anxious, and guess whose still inside my tummy?

i can't wait to hold him in my arms...

38 weeks, 2 days, and nothing...

well, jett seems to be pretty comfortable inside my womb. : / i'm glad he's comfortable, but i am so ready for him to make his debut! i went to the doctor this morning and i am not dilated or effaced AT ALL! i was so dissapointed. but patrick reminded me that he isn't due until next saturday, he's fine where he is for now, and i just need to be patient. which i do. i've made it 38 weeks, and i can make it 2 more if i have too.

my doctor did say that she wouldn't not let me go past my due date. she is going out of town this thursday and will not be back until the 27th. so hopefully the 28th or 29th we will induce if jett has not arrived.

other than that, i can't complain too much. overall, i feel pretty good which i am so grateful for...

stay tuned for more jett updates. hopefully, the next post will be pictures of him!

the bob

my sweet friend jessie and her mom gave us the bob jogging stroller as a gift for jett.
the bob can be used as a jogging stroller (now i don't have an excuse not to run after jett is born)
but it can also be used as an everyday stroller.
we debated for a few weeks if we should use the bob as just our jogging stroller....
or if we should by the car seat adapter and use it as our everyday stroller.
we decided to buy the adapter.
so me being the handywoman that i am, installed the car seat adapter.
the car seat fits great.
all we need now is a baby.
hamilton helped as well.

tagliarini picchi pacchiu

so i mentioned in a post the other day about this special meal at carrabba's that has the potential to induce labor. well, today patrick and i went to carrabba's for lunch to see if this dish really existed. we asked the waitor if they had a dish that is notorious for inducing labor (knowing it was a ridiculous question), and he said he'd never heard of anything like that, but went and asked the manager...turns out the tagliarini picchi pacchiu is the famous dish. so i ordered it. supposively the oils and spices are the elements that cause labor to start. for all i know the waitor could have pointed at any item on the menu and had me convinced...but either way i did enjoy this dish and definitely recommend it even if you are not trying to induce labor.

so far i am still pregnant, and there are no signs of labor in the near future.

36 weeks, 6 days and nothing...

we had our 36 week appointment this morning, and i was extremely confident that we would go in, and i would definitely be dialated or effaced....WRONG! nothing. absolutely nothing. this isn't a big deal at all, but i wanted something to be going on. i am 37 weeks tomorrow, and i am so ready to meet this little boy and have my body back. (or something close to my previous body) but oh well. we have to wait another week, and hopefully i will have made some progress. next appointment is monday september 14. i'll keep you posted.

my friend kimy told me that carabbas has this "pregnant meal" that you can order, and it will help induce labor. she said two of her friends ate this and two days later they both had their in the mean time, i will be eating carabbas, walking, eating jalapenos, and whatever else i can do to meet this baby sooner rather than later. : )

here i am at 36 hamilton wanted to be in the picture.
