(Be warned, Travis. I’m talking about being pregnant and having a baby in this one!) 😀
Tonya started it off by coming in the room, big smile on, saying, “Can you believe you’re at 36-weeks already?!” Yes!! Every inch of my body believes it!!
So, in a ‘to the point’ fashion, I haven’t progressed MUCH (if any) further from last week. Still at 70% and and a solid 2 cm. Blood pressure’s good. Blood sugar and protein levels are great. So … no cause for concern in the present. And I’m at full term on Friday.
They did go ahead and set an induction appointment. Thursday, August 27th, though I’ve been told by both midwives now that they will be very surprised if I make it that far.
But Amy and I have an idea that she needs to be born THIS Friday, in order to continue the pattern that Wesley and Nathan have established.
Wesley’s birthday was Friday, March 27th.
Nathan’s birthday was Friday, July 17th.
So Iva’s needs to be Friday, August 7th. 😀
In other, somewhat related news: Kyle’s mom came to visit this past weekend, and boy did she work hard! She kept saying she was “hyper” and so she hit our house like a TORNADO! Everything in the house was cleaned! She washed every stitch of laundry in the house – including our shower curtains, floor mats, and blankets. She cooked up several things of food to put in the freezer for later “thaw and heat” ease. And MAN, are we grateful for her help! It was so nice having her here!! We got to spend a lot of time with her — more than we’ve been able to in a while. Good quality family time is always cherished.
During the afternoon, she kicked us out of the house and sent us to Walmart, where Kyle and I had to buy a few items for our “hospital bag”. So we’ve got everything together for it. And last night, Kyle picked out her “going home outfit(s)”. Now I just have to put together some clothes for myself and let Kyle pack the bag. And we’ll be ready to roll at a moment’s notice!
