Check in time!

Has your Polar Bear arrived?
If so, how old is s/he now?
What do you love most about that snuggly little one?
If you have older children, how are they doing adjusting to the new little one?

Still waiting for your Polar Bear to arrive?
If so, how many weeks are you?
Any signs of labor?
Do you have a "plan" for eviction date? Scheduled c-section? Induction?
Got everything ready now?

Not here yet...

37 weeks 2 days
50% effaced, 1 cm dilated (last week was 20% effaced and 1 cm)
Bp is stable but a little high so with the gd and history of pre-e we have an induction scheduled for jan 27 if he hadn't shown up before hand.
Everything is bought but not set up yet.

Waiting, semi-patiently. I'm whatever my ticker says.. 39w4d.

Any signs of labor? Oh goodness. Been having BH cx for months, but been having more uncomfortable cx for the last couple days. So irregular that I have no good idea if this kid's birth is imminent or not. Sometimes 9 minutes apart, sometimes an hour. Sigh. At last check (a few days ago) I was 5cm and 50%.
Do you have a "plan" for eviction date? Scheduled c-section? Induction? Will discuss with my doctor tomorrow, but I will agree to induction once I hit about a week past my due date. We'll see what her schedule is like.

Got everything ready now? Yep, ready to go! Crib is set up, carseat is installed, older kids' stuff is already dropped off at grandma's house.. Just waiting on baby!

Had my appointment today. Assuming he doesn't come on his own, we'll induce at 41w2d, so on 1/25. The end is in sight!

I have been wondering how you all were doing! I can't wait to *meet* your new little ones! Are any of you trying ways to 'help' things along? Biggrin

What do you love most about that snuggly little one? she's a champ at nursing. and sleeps like a rock.
If you have older children, how are they doing adjusting to the new little one? they want to eat her.

Oh Missy.. we've tried everything short of castor oil! I was hoping the full moon last night would contribute, but to paraphrase Scripture, "My ways are not your ways, says this baby. My plans are not your plans!" Wink

ROFL Love it. I remember having quite a few conversations / prayers / and maybe a few "Are you KIDDING ME?" moments when my pregnancies dragged on. I finally learned with my later additions to just accept that 'normal' for me was 41+ weeks. *sigh* I'll keep sending you ELV's, prayers, eviction notices and whatever tidal pull is remaining. Biggrin Maybe this weekend is IT!
