so tomorrow...

... we meet with the uber-midwife to find out an induction date!
yay! why am i glad?

• excited to meet the boy
• excited for abbey to meet her bruddah
• excited to not be in extreme discomfort when sitting
• excited to not be in extreme discomfort when rising from sitting position
• excited to sleep on stomach again
• excited to feel as though i've NOT been horseback riding for hours
• excited for new baby smell
• excited for my carpal tunnel to lessen and be able to feel my fingertips again

notice i'm not focused on getting back into smaller clothes -- that will come with time and i'm pretty proud that i'm not thinking only about that. of course it's entered my mind -- after all, i'm down to two skirts and two pairs of pants at this moment... but that's not my main motivation for being done.

we're pretty much solid on the name Oskar. we were doing with the C spelling of Oscar for a while, but Oskar looks a little more bad ass, if you ask me.

so our appt. is tomorrow at 9:30, which means by 10 a.m., we'll know Oskar's probable birthday! i have a gut feeling for april 27, but we'll see what happens... more to come.

open letter to the not-yet-born boy.

dear oskar bram:
please come soon. and if we do induce you like i plan on, please come willingly. and please don't have a HUGE head.

the wee lad has his head down, so he's not breech! woot! here's a profile shot of the boy -- below his face he's holding out his little fist, so you decide: is he sticking it to the man, or reaching out with respect knuckles?

at long last... a blog post!

i'm at 36 weeks today and the word from the midwife is that we'll induce at 39 for a variety of reasons. which i'm totally fine with, as you would be if you felt what i was feeling in my, um, bathing suit areas. there is some question as to whether or not the little scamp is breech, so we'll do an ultrasound this tuesday to see where he's positioned... baby pictures to come!

other than that, i'm slowly preparing myself for babydom -- we've washed the new clothes and this coming week hope to sort of assemble his room. next weekend we'll pick up the last few things that we need for him.... then it's just waiting time.

THREE WEEKS! dude. it's crazy.
