The plan is...

...to be induced April 4th. I will be 39 weeks that day and I am more than ready. I went for a check up yesterday and I am 1 cm dilated. I begged to be induced earlier but they don't like to do it too early for white boys. They say they have a higher rate of needing oxygen after birth when born early. So it's best for Jonah if he bakes for one more week. So we are counting down they days! I will go in that morning and they will break my water and start me on pitocin to get the contractions going. I will be sure to post pictures when we get home. Please pray for a normal delivery with no complications.

Nothing New...

I went for another check up today. I am not dilated at all. She said the earliest they would induce me is 38 1/2 weeks. Which will be April 2nd or 3rd. The statistics show that a white male born early has a high likelyhood of requiring oxygen. I want him to come out today but I guess he's not ready. This has been the hardest pregnancy for me, physically. I cannot stand on my feet for more than 15 minutes at a time. My belly tightens up hard as a rock. My back hurts a lot and I cannot sleep without medication. Even that doesn't work sometimes. I guess the hardest part is not being able to do what I want with my boys. I feel like they are being put on the back burner because "mommy doesn't feel good". Anyway, I am just ready for Jonah to get here. I go back next Wed. for another checkup. Please pray for early delivery. I do not want to go full term with this baby. I hate to complain cause I know so many other women who have it worse than me. I just don't like laying around all the time. I am not a lazy person and it's making me CRAZY. Just pray for me....

Long time no post

Well I haven't posted in a while and it's because I am trying to stay off my feet as much as possible as this pregnancy comes to an end. I don't have any pictures to post either. The boys are doing good. Running around like always acting silly and just being boys. Right now Jaron has an ear infection in his right ear. So he is on another round of antibiotics. They are very excited to see their brother too. We are counting down the days.

Jaron's speech therapy is going good too. He has learned to make the "k" sound and is saying new words all the time. He is so cute now that he makes sentences and carries on conversations with his brother. Anyway, don't know when I'll post again. Maybe next time it will be with another baby in the pictures. :-)
