Week 38

Here we are week 38. It is hard to believe that we are so close to being done with the pregnancy, the time has flown by.

The last week was good. We really didn't do anything until the weekend and even then I didn't do much! Chris got the shed built on Saturday morning (thanks Steve and Kyle for the extra help!).
I even managed to come up with an idea for the due date guessing prize. It isn't really that exciting, apparently my creativity is also slowing down the more pregnant I am..... If a guy wins the guessing...I will have to come up with something else. I doubt they would appreciate a 5 pack of homemade cards.

Today we went to the doctor and everything was good. My blood pressure is back in an acceptable range after a couple of weeks ago and the non-stress test was good. This was the first one of those that Chris had made it to and he kept comparing her heart beat on the monitor to sounding like a horse trotting. I will have to agree, the two do resemble one another. After that we had a chat with the doctor and our exam. We were 1cm and 60% effaced. Much farther along than about a week and a half ago when we had made zero progress at all. So.....here is the big news. We are scheduled to be induced on Monday, May 11th at 7:30 am. Of course, if Baby Corwin feels like making her debut a little earlier we would be okay with that too. But, I really doubt that is gonna happen. So back to the doctor on Friday for another check of the blood pressure and so on and then we will be off to the hospital on Monday morning.

We don't have much to do this week because our bags are already packed and we are pretty much ready to go. That means lots of resting and relaxing and hopefully getting the extra bedroom cleaned up so that someone can actually sleep back here.

Here is a recap of the guessing dates, just in case you were wondering who might win....

I think by the size of your belly that you are having a toddler, not a baby! I can't wait to meet her! I hope she is rotten like her cousin Riley! :)
