Waiting for baby Mena to make her grand entrance. My doctors have my due date as May 29th, I have my due date as May 27th. Who knows she will actually arrive though? Maybe the 28th just to be defiant. Or maybe not until June!
I feel pretty ready for her though. I have her pack-n-play all set up in our bedroom. The carseat is installed and her stroller is in the trunk. I have my labor bag packed and sitting in the back seat (just in case). We have tons of clothes for her, diapers, wipes, bottles (should probably go get a breast pump this weekend)...a vibey chair. I think we're as ready as we can get.
I'm still working but not picking up any new projects, just trying to close out what I have open and doing office management stuff.
I haven't been checked for dilation or effacement so I don't know if I will be. My next appointment is tomorrow, we'll see how that one goes. I'm going twice a week now for non-stress tests and AFI.
I'm so swollen I can't wear my wedding ring, so I am wearing a cheapy hematite band like the one Eric used to wear on his ring finger before we got married. It's kind of sweet and romantic in a way.
My brother just graduated from UNC and got accepted to law school out here in CA, so he's moving this way in August! I am so happy that he's moving close by and can be around to watch his little niece grow up :).
Other than the waiting game, not much else going on here. As soon as the wee one comes out, I am sure this journal will be blooming with pictures :)
