The End Is Near

I had another OBGYN appointment today and I know you all have been checking in today to find out the results.

Unfortunately there are no changes with me or the little one.  He said she has dropped a bit, but my cervix and uterus remained unchanged.  This is NOT what a pregnant woman wants to hear on the date she is "due". 

The doctor then said the sweetest words I've heard in about nine months...*wink*  He asked if we wanted to give her a deadline.  I cheerfully agreed!  An end in sigh, oh what a feeling!!!  If the wonderful little bundle of joy does not arrive before then, we are to be at the hospital on Tuesday, September 2 at 5:30AM.  I am still hoping that she comes before then but if not we do know that there will be a new baby in our family on our around the second!!! 

Stay tuned for details.  I have a very important blogger on standby to post the all important first photo since I don't think People or USA Today will be paying me millions for it.

Just checking the status, but I guess I didn't miss anything. Will check in again over the weekend.

Linda said...

I know you want this to be over with but I was kind of hoping you'd have her on your Mom's birthday now that I know it's on the 5th. Oh well ... guess the little darlin' can have a birthday on the 2nd if she doesn't decide to be a true Labor Day baby and show up on the 1st!

Ann said...

How exciting~ You must be excited and more than ready to bring her into the world. My father was born on September the second.

I can't wait to see her picture. Are you sure you don't want us to call People magazine?

Good luck to you both~

Ok, ok...this is good. At least we KNOW when she'll be here for sure.

On that note, I think you should do a lot of walking, a lot of eating spicy food and a lot of...um...you know, what got you there in the first place but without the actual act. :)

Mimi Lenox said...

A very important blogger - you crack me up!
You need one of the birthing chairs that I have in my store!
I hope little baby belle black decides to come on her own, after all a Labor Day labor would be good, huh?

Bubba's Sis said...

Jump on the bed!

I'm glad you have a deadline - that will make you feel better in your mind about it all. Can't wait to see the first pics!!!!!

Desert Songbird said...

Here's hoping for a smooth delivery...and an imminent one!

Stine said...

OK, so she'll come along the day before. Here's to 01.09.08, or is it 08.01.09? And here's to a smooth run for both (all three) of you. I'm off to the UK for the weekend, back on Tuesday. Will look in on you then - there better be photos!

Tina said...

Kimmie said...

I was so hoping to come and see you were NOT here! ;-) Well, she is just not ready to come out of that warm and cozy atmosphere yet. I'm with Mimi, put your feet up and let God handle the rest. I think to have a planned day is wonderful! Just think, she will be here in 5 days no matter what. :-) Still saying prayers for you and little one. I will keep checking. Sending hugs.
Love,
Kimmie
