Hygiene Can Be Scary

Jennah got her first bath at home last night. It was traumatic to say the least. I wish I could say it made her sleep better, but things were the same. I have the night shift with Jennah right now, and Amr has the day shift with Ayman. I don't even want to think about next Monday when he goes back to work.

Three pushes people, and BLAM! picture the guy who shoots out of the cannon at the circus.

Mmmmm Coffee.

Posted by PicasaJennah in her new carseat, right before we left. The coffee cup was Amr's idea. She has a ton of hair. I love it. I love her. I am biased. DUUUHHHHHH!

Okay, Here Is The Deal.

Last week, when I went to my doctors appointment, they set a scheduled induction date for me--Wednesday the 15th. I just didn't publish it here because I didn't want to jinx it. Today, I went to the doctor again and it seems like the time is right for that induction. So here it is, The Official Word: I will be reporting to the hospital I work at tomorrow, at around seven pm to give this girl the ole' heave ho. So, if you don't see anything for a few days, you know I am in a state of shock and awe and haven't had time to blog my experience. I will return though. To be sure.

At least you all didn't have to see my mucous plug.

A Pregnant Lady in All Her Pregnant Glory

Here are pictures of me huge, taken for posterity at my baby shower. The shower was given to me by my sister in law Renee, and my mom, Cindy. It was a great day, and I am very thankful to the both of them for doing something so special.

BTW, people, I go to the doctor tomorrow (after yet another pedicure) I guess we will see if the walking I have been doing has helped me out any.

Today has really sucked over here on the pregnancy front. My back, is KILLING me. I have been uncomfortable all day. The baby is trying to kick her way out of me, Alien style. I was pretty concerned earlier this evening, so I had my girlfriend check with L and D at our hospital. They told me to, and I am serious here, take two Tylenol and call them later. They also wanted me to drink 32 oz of water, just in case what I am experiencing is dehydration. So I did this. The nurse also told me that if the contractions come 3-4 minutes apart for one hour to come on in. This whole pregnancy is very different than with Ayman. I don't know what to make of it. Oh well, I will do as I am told, and see what happens. I will keep every one posted to be sure.

Also today, at Amrs job they gave him a surprise baby shower. They all chipped in and gave him a 200 dollar gift card and a cake. I thought that was soooo nice. He said that his boss told him that she needed to speak to him in the conference room when he came back from his afternoon break. Everyone was in there with the cake and they all said "Surprise!" Amr still didn't get that it was a surprise for him, they had to tell him, "No, Amr, it is for you, the surprise is for you." So he really was surprised. Cool.

It's reaaalllly ON now.

I went to the doctor yesterday, and we will be inducing my labor next week. WOO HOO!
So, until then I will be walking. And walking. And walking. I had a semi encouraging cervical exam, (open fingertip, I guess better than nothing) So, I walk. And vacuum. Do some squats. Maybe a few Jumping jacks.... Still haven't packed my bag for the hospital yet, but the babies' bed came and that is now good to go as well.

Now, we wait.

Can you see her?

Baby picture! Posted by PicasaShe is facing you, on her side. During the ultrasound i saw her lick her lips as well as the amniotic sac.

The news is in....

We had the ultra sound this morning. The baby weighs between 7lbs 12 oz-14oz. Goodness, that is nearly eight pounds. How do I do this? We got to see her face really well, and as soon as my darling brother scans the pictures and sends them to me, I will share with you all out there too. And finally, last but not least, we found out FOR Sure, 100% NO Doubt that it is a little girl. I trust my ob's PA, and all, but her ultrasound machine is like, 100 years old. Today, I saw little girl parts. TOTALLY. Whew. I would have had a lot of returning to do.
So now I just finish nesting. The cosleeper is on the way, the baby closet is organized. Now for the stroller/car seat (or travel system, if you will) I also need to pack for the hospital, but I think I will leave that undone. Or not, I don't know, my brain is mush at this point. Ok signing off for now, I have a munchkin in the tub that needs a toothbrushing.

So I am Huge, You Got A Problem With That?

Tomorrow morning I go for an ultrasound to establish an EFW, or estimated fetal weight. Apparently they are concerned that this baby will be too big to squeeze out. Hey, I am concerned too! I did the last one at 9 lbs and that was no joke, people! But hey, he came out ok, with only a minimal conehead. I am concerned that his one will be too big to get out the regular way and may require surgery. I am hoping not. I would rather not break her little collarbone on the way out either. So, ultrasound it is, tomorrow morning bright and early. Thank goodness I don't have to drink the standard 32 ounces of water, because I can barely drink 2 ounces of water at this point. Wish me luck, and I will keep y'all posted.
