Well I have finally made it to 38 weeks and 2 days and "D-day" isn't looking so close. My doctor suggested I go on exercise-like walks (he mentioned one or two other things that I won't include, I know you know what I'm talking about people) to get more contractions going. Otherwise it looks like they will induce labor on August 28th. I don't know how I feel about inducing. I hear that it makes for a more difficult labor. Is that true?
We visited the hospital on Saturday to set our minds at ease. The woman at the information desk was really nice and she gave us a little tour of the ob. It was good to see where all of the upcoming events will take place. The facilities were nice and the nurses seemed very kind. Everyone seemed shocked that we didn't take any birthing classes. It is a little late now so I hope my body knows what to do. Is it really that common to take a class? I am open to any advice people.
Lately I have just been hanging out here at home. I feel tired but fine. I went to the library and checked out a bunch of books and I also got my new copy of Eclipse in the mail, so I have just been reading like mad. I can't wait to finish Eclipse. I love Stephenie Meyers' books! Other than that I just clean and then go on walks in the evening with Mike. Pretty exciting. I plan on having more to write about after the baby is born. I am sure you will grow tired of all the pictures I plan on posting of the kid. He still needs a name any suggestions? We have a list of names that we can both live with but we aren't totally excited about any of them. Help!
