(no subject)

I am considering locking this up as friend's only because I've come to a point in my career life where I might be establishing a professional persona. And I certainly don't want that persona to be linked back here.

I haven't decided yet. But if you were once estalking and someday find yourself locked out, just add me. Everyone knows I can't deny a good estalker.

29 it is

I got an enormous monitor for my birthday from Eric.

It's so huge, it almost makes me forget that I will be 30 next year.

I expect a HUGE party for that one :)

Also my brother just moved to Santa Clara for law school. I am happy, happy, happy. My family near by and my baby girl is adorable. Tis good.

I got a twitter awhile ago and now I am actually using it. I like it. It's good for those amazing one liners I always come up with but don't really warrant an LJ entry.

Anyway, follow me.

my little beauty

This is my favorite picture of our little girl :)

Beautiful girl

She's here!

Mena was born on June 5th at 1:03 AM via c-section. She weighed 8 lbs and 1 oz and measured 20.5 inches long. And, ofc, she's the most beautiful baby to ever exist :)

As of yesterday, 1 cm dilated, but high and thick.

Discussed induction with my doctor and she agreed that since my blood pressure is under control and my fluid is good, going into labor naturally is a good idea. I guess they normally induce at about 39 weeks when the mother is hypertensive. But since I am high and thick anyway, she wants to wait. And I don't want to be induced, so seems like we're on the same page. Yay!

I've had very few contractions but tons of cramping. I dunno when she's going to make her appearance! I want to see two movies this weekend so maybe she will decide to come just to prevent me from seeing Indy and Narnia. :D

Finally was checked yesterday and I am closed for business, even though her head is engaged.

I know, I know, you can go from closed to labor really quickly, but I can't help feeling disappointed! I even had some contractions Sunday nite and started getting excited! Eric was really excited, then they just went away. BLAH.

I know I need to be more patient, she will come out when she wants to! I just want it to be sooner rather than later! :)

two weeks left

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 :)
