More Than Ready

Well, we're just ten days short of our due date and I am dead ready to go. 

We finally packed our hospital bag, though we could have done a better job. We just keep thinking once we need to go, we'll still have a little time to add last-minute things and we don't want to go to the hospital for a false alarm so we're going to wait things out as long as we can. I would go over what I put in our hospital bag, but right now I am extremely uncomfortable with the baby positioned as low as she is (she must have dropped more) and so I need to watch a movie or something to distract myself. I am growing increasingly frustrated because I haven't yet had any regular contractions (just occasional powerful waves) and my patience is waning. I know that the baby will come when she is supposed to but I can't take much more. 

Dalin, too, is growing impatient. He is so excited to be a dad. We talk about our daughter constantly and that is really the only thing we can think about. We've been taking our doctor's suggestions to heart, but the internet basically has informed us that there is no proof that anything really induces labor. She'll come when she's supposed to. I just hope for all our sakes that it's in the next week...

I'll write more later, but for now, please please please just pray our daughter comes soon or I'm going to go completely crazy. 

In the meanwhile, to keep me distracted, take a second to answer either of these:

When do you predict I'll go into labor? 
What was your experience as a first-time mom?


  1. my grandmother walked up the steps to the very top of the empire state building and immediately went into labor with my dad, even tho it was 2 months before her due date!! my mom also walked 2 miles when she was a day past her due date with my youngest sister...she was like "i'm gonna walk until this baby is half out" hahaha...not sure if any of this helps, but maybe you could go for a long walk? :)

    1. Okay, you convinced me. The doctor said walking and my mom said walking and the only reason I haven't done too much walking was because the internet says that it isn't a definite way to induce labor. But with all of the stories I've heard recently, that's good enough for me. Thanks for the advice, Julie!! :)


I absolutely love to hear from you & will reply if I can!
