Waiting....

Well.. GOOD NEWS!! I just got back from the doctor. I am dialated to a 2 and fully effaced! They said she was really low and so now we just wait! I am SOOOO excited that no matter what, I will have her here in 1 week and 6 days MAX! The doctor stripped my membranes and said hopefully I will go into labor on my own within 3 days! I hope I am not getting my hopes up. I am really trying not to.. but its hard not to with her arrival coming up so soon! Anyway.. I feel like I need to tell everyone that I know about this just because I was so stressed about not being able to deliver at the hospital I wanted to because of the insurance change. Now I don't have to worry anymore! Yay!! Well.. here is the most recent picture of the big ole bell-ay!!
Okay.. I seriously feel like him right now.. which brings me to the question?? How does this man function being this big all year round? His stomach is very similar to a 3rd trimester belly (maybe not MY third trimester belly{thank heavens!!}) But how does he do it? Really.. It is bad enough having a basketball hanging off the front of you for 9 months. Let alone for 365 days a year? Okay back to me. Here it is... Little Miss ???.. you are almost here!!
38 Weeks.. 26 (wow!) pounds gained.. The countdown has definately begun.

Your so lucky I just got back from the doctors and I am a two also but only 60%. She kind of stripped my membrains but she really will do it next monday. I hope I have Kenley before Christmas but it doesn't feel like it to me, but I will have her before the end of the year, only a few weeks and we will both be holding our beautiful baby girls!! Wow.

nice!!!! the doctor stripped my membranes with Andrew and I went into labor four days later...but honestly every single person I know goes into labor like that night or the next day so I will pray for you to do the same! What's this with the insurance? I am nervous about it.....Zach told me we were getting new insurance but I don't know anything about it. If you need help with Em or anything please let me know!

Tara serious you and Braun get busy 2nite and then go mow the lawn hee hee that worked for me. The nurse said it wasn't the lawn mowing if ya know what I mean.

Jon & Maria Ison said...

Oh how exciting! Everyone that I know that has had their membranes stripped went into labor within 24-72 hours. Hopefully you will too! I'm very excited for you and can't wait to see your beautiful little girl. Tara, you are sooo tiny!! That "gigantic" weight gain of yours will come off as soon as you pop that little baby out. You look fantastic! I hope your labor and delivery go well. Good luck!!

You still look way cute even though you don't think you do! So I really have no recoletion of a foot zoning Dr.... She may have been confused with someone else she was talking to. I work with some awesome massage therapists that could help you but I don't know anyone that does that. I wish I did so I could help you! Sorry!

Thats so exciting. I wish I could have my baby two weeks early. I am glad that you don't have to worry about the insurance. I am hoping everything is still ok with the doctor I've been seeing depending on the insurance. Congrats and who knows it my be a christmas baby(:

Hey Tara! I asked my friend for the info so I'll pass it on as soon as I get it! The cabin couldn't have been more perfect. You guys would love it. Good luck with your last week or so! I'm sure she'll be more than worth the wait:)

Lynds said...

I have been checking your blog since you updated about getting "stipped". My Dr offered to do this too at 37 weeks and I am about where you are at... low baby,80% and a 2. I have been induced 2 weeks early with my other 2 and am wondering if this would work for me. I hope you go into labor soon....Good luck!

Chris & Jennie said...

Wow, you still look so small! I can't believe you've only gained 26 pounds; you skinny little thing! You look great. I'm so excited you could have your baby any day now! Yippie!

Melissa (Missy) Eva Streiff said...

Oh I really hope you go into labor wearing your UGLY sweater at the christmas party and you have to go to the hospital in the ugly sweater and they all think your serious! lol I can't believe you only gained 26 lbs!!!!

Kiri Anne said...

Yay! I am so excited for you! I hope she comes sooner rather than later! I can't wait to see the little cutie and whatever kind of craft that you think you are going to do while you are in the hospital! You are hilarious!

The Belshes said...
