Jacob has arrived!!

So I think everyone knows that he is here. My water started leaking Saturday around 12 and he was born 10:48 that night. He is doing wonderfully! He weighed 8 lbs 8 ounces at birth, and when he was weighed this morning he was 8 lbs 2 ounces, so not a bad weight loss at all. He's breastfeeding well, I just hope it continues once my milk comes in. I'm a bit nervous now that we are home but I now that everything will be just fine.

induction set

K, we're set for February 2nd. 1 1/2 weeks after my due date. Unless he decides he wants to come, which hopefully he will. No change in dilation since last week. Still sitting at 2cm and 90% effaced. I don't have much else to say. Kinda sad and just want to cry.

Happy Due Date to me....

Yup, it's today. But it's not looking like he's going to come today. Ugh, he just wants to stay in now. I have a dr appointment Friday where we will talk about inducing me. So, I should have my baby by sometime next week. Hopefully he'll decide he wants out before I have to be induced. Cross your fingers!

still incubating

he's still in there, or here I should say. My dr stripped my membranes today so hopefully he'll come tonight or tomorrow!!! I'm becoming really impatient, which I feel bad about because I know he's still in there for a reason. I just want to meet my little guy. I am starting to get a little nervous regarding the delivery though, but I know he has to come out some way, lol!

no letters yet

I know I know, I said I would post them, but I am going to buy new ones and start over because I don't like the way the ones I was doing were coming out. I'm about to give up and just buy some already done but they are sooooooo expensive. Anyway, another dr appointment friday. I'm going to ask him to sweep my membranes and hopefully that will get something started because someone has decided that he doesn't want to come out now. I'm not due until next week but I'm really impatient right now, lol.

belly shots

Alright, here is a new belly picture. The one in the pj's is from 34 weeks, then tonight's at 38 weeks. He's dropped for sure! I have a dr's appointment Friday so hopefully I will be more dialated then I was last week. I plan on finishing the letters for his name tomorrow and if I do then I will post pics of the nursery. If not tomorrow then within the next couple days, unless I go into labor. Ha ha!!

No baby yet

He's not here yet. Yesterday was my last day of the meds and the last day of bedrest. So if I go into labor then we'll do nothing to stop it which is fine. I'm still a fingertip dialated and 70% effaced like I was last week. Hopefully I'll start having some contractions and get things moving along here. I know he's dropped, I swear he's lower than he was last week which I didn't think could happen but man is he low!! At least he feels that way! I'll have Mike take a picture later so I can post a comparison.
The nursery is finished, all his clothes are washed, we have everything we need for him and the carseat is installed. So now we just need him to get here!! Anytime Jacob!!! Mommy and Daddy are anxious to meet you!!
Also this week I talked with my mom and my dad and told them their boyfriend and girlfriend are not to be at the hospital. It's not respectful to my dad for my mom's boyfriend to be there and vise versa. Mom and Dad won't be in the room while I'm delivering but can be in while I'm in labor. I only want Mike there as this will be a good bonding experience for him and I. No problem with people that have all their family in the room while their baby is born, but not my thing!!
