Maybe Not...

Well, I went into the hospital at 9:00 yesterday morning. They ended up not starting me on plutosin until 1:00, because they had to have an operating room open for me just in case, and there were a couple of surgeries that were ahead of me. I was having some mild contractions at the time, and once the medication started, the contractions picked up pretty quickly. By 5:00 I was having pretty steady contractions and they were starting to be a little painful. However, my uterus wasn't completely relaxing in between each contraction, so they decided to shut off the medication to give the baby a rest. I had pretty steady contractions for about an hour after that, and then they started to dwindle down. They were going to start the medication again, but there was another woman who came in who was in labor and she got priority over me, so they monitored me for a couple of hours and then sent me home about 10:30 pm. It was pretty disappointing for me, but I knew that there was a good chance it wouldn't work on the first try. They have surgeries scheduled all day today, so unless I go into labor on my own, they won't induce again until tomorrow (Thurs.) morning. Today is Jason's birthday and we have about 6 inches of new snow from yesterday. That makes a foot and a half of fresh snow since Saturday! I will do my best to keep you updated! Sorry there are no baby pictures yet. :(

Today's the Day!

Me playing Guesstures on Christmas Eve
Jason playing Guesstures
The Anderson Family
Mom S., Dad L., Mom L. (making a baby blanket) and Carolyn A.

Jason's Birthday a little early!
First of all, Happy Holidays! I hope that everyone had a good Christmas yesterday! We have a lot of family in town and we have had a lot of fun eating and playing games. Last night I went in to the hospital for a couple of hours so that they could prep me for today. They told me that I was 60% effaced and dialated to 1 cm. This is all very good news! They put some cream in that will help it even more. I've been having contractions all night, so hopefully the plutosin (sp?) this morning will really kick me into labor. I go into the hospital in about an hour, so we may have a baby by the end of the day. :) Yippee!! Here are just a couple of pictures of our day yesterday. More to come!

I was at the doctor yesterday, and I have a little bit better idea of when the baby is coming. The baby is all in position, but there are no signs of it coming yet. So, I will be induced on Tuesday. There was a chance that they would do it today or tomorrow, but now they will wait until Tuesday. I will go in Monday night and they will get things started and then Tuesday morning they will actually give me the IV to start contractions. I would like it to come on its own right now!!! :) My family comes in Christmas Day and Jason's family is coming tomorrow, so we will have everyone here for the baby (hopefully). :) Stay tuned for more baby news coming soon!

Getting Ready

Our "nursery" is actually a closet. There is room for some of the things we already have stored in there, as well as a cradle...

Tight fit, but that is where the rocking chair will go...

And the changing table.... Please don't tell my child that he/she spent the first several months of its life in a closet!!

Sorry about the random Winter Wonderland picture! :)

Here I am getting ready to go on a walk. (Trying to get the baby ready to come out!) The shirt fit me a little better when I got it, but it works now to keep me warm! An update on the baby status: I have an appointment on Wednesday when they will schedule an induction. They may do it as soon as this Thurs. or Fri., or else they will wait until next week Tues. (12/26). We will see!! I have 2 more days of school, and after that, the sooner the better! It may come on its own anytime! :)
