3 days left... This is a pic of me, and my elusive teenage brother, Will. Somehow, I am not even cool enough to hang out with anymore! Imagine that!

Still no Presley

Well, her due date came, and is almost gone. We had a great day though! We just hung out at the house this morning, and went and saw my family this afternoon. We had a great dinner, and got to spend some time with the fam!

Des Arc 8, Hazen 6

Des Arc played their rival, Hazen, tonight. They won! I didn't go because that was a little too far away from an epidural for my comfort, but Nick said that it was the best game of the season. I went out to eat with my granparents and my parents to celebrate my grandmother's birthday. It is so nice to spend some time with them. My mom's parents drove all the way from North Carolina to wait for Presley! They have been here since the 17th. They are the best! I feel guilty for calling my friends and family now because everyone I call sounds disappointed when they figure out I'm not in labor! I understand, I am a little disappointed too!

Friday Eve

Tomorrow is Friday and payday! I love Fridays! Our friends, Jacob and Katy, just had a baby boy yesterday. His name is Owen, and I got to meet him tonight. He is so precious. Nick had a jr high game, so I went by myself. I got in the elevator to labor and delivery, and a guy offered me a wheelchair! Katy said pitocin was horrible. YIKES!

Not much to say about today. Nick and I went walking tonight, and I noticed that there is a full moon. Maybe something will happen in the next couple of days! This is a picture of my dad's parents with their first son, Sam. I wish my grandma Betsy was here to meet Presley, but I am sure that she will be checking in on us!

Happiest Halloween!

Nick and I went to the doctor today, and I am happy to say that I do not have another appointment at his office for 6 weeks! My doctor made an appointment for me to be induced on the 31st. I am optimistic that she will come before then, but at least I know that I will not be pregnant forever! I think that my mom might be planning Presley's first birthday party right now...

What instructions?

Nick put Presley's swing together tonight. His mom called and reminded him that he might want to use the instructions because there will be precious cargo swinging soon! He did a great job.

Coming Soon...

Well, we hope that Presley will be making her appearance sometime this week! She is due Saturday, October 27th. I hope that she will come on the 26th so that she and her great grandmother can share their birthday! Nick, of course, has a football game Friday night so that could be interesting. I have been going to the doctor every week for about 3 weeks now. At my last appointment I was dilated 1 cm and about 50% effaced. That does not tell me anything about when I will go into labor so I am really not sure why they check. I go to the doctor again Tuesday, and I will be sure to keep everyone updated! Right now, we are just waiting and praying for a healthy baby and an easy delivery!
