update from me (XP sort of)

I saw a different doc on Thursday, still nothing. I see my doc on the 10th, so if nothing has happened, I am sure he'll induce me that Mon/Tues, but not during the weekend, since it's Easter weekend. I am guessing he'll stay put just like his sister did. I am not miserable, just tired, but I am fine. I just can't wait to meet him.

Here's some pics of the cradle a man from Randall's work made us. Randall just had to cut him some wood in exchange. I can't wait to see Randy in it!


Just for fun, although we just had 3 pups and a momma dog we need to get rid of, my FIL thought he'd be cute and bring us another pup. :eek: Just like one Ruthie wants too, a small, brown & white dog. So, of course, being the sucker I am, I said okay. He's not going to be an inside dog though. I can't do that with a newborn. Thank goodness we live in the country. He's cute though! Ardee is his name! Could you have said no? Plus, I got there late, but the dog was attached to Ruthie. He followed her everywhere that day!

I am in love with Arlee!!!!!! We don't have pets here, just too much work (so I'm with you on the outdoor dog with a newborn). But what a sweet puppy, I LOVE LOVE LOVE his little face!

The cradle looks really nice! Smile

And I'm glad you're not miserable. I don't see any reason for inductions if not medically necessary ... my first two were 7 and 10 days late ... The babies always come when they're ready, if there are no problems otherwise. But I totally get wanting to meet baby. Wink I'm so excited for you!

The main reason I am sure they'll induce me is b/c I have had to watch my sugar intake, and that usually accounts for a larger baby. :confused: Ruthie was 8 lbs, 3.9 oz, which isn't too big, but he was measuring large at my last u/s, 4.5 lbs at the time, which if he gained .5 lbs (usually what they gain) a week, he will be at about 9 lbs. I wish I could just wait and go on my own, but if he keeps getting bigger, than I can't have him vaginally. I would rather be induced and have him vaginally, then have to have a c-section.

I don't think Ardee will get big. He's part Beagle, and they don't get big at all. We have a Great Pyrenees who is very large though. He's an inside/outside dog. He's PT'd, but he didn't like being indoors as much as we thought he would. I think he's too large...here's a pic to explain Wink

Lol Thought you'd think so! He's about 90 lbs or so. He's really a sweet, and gentle dog. We have 4 acres of our own for him to run on, and about 40 (that we don't own) behind our house. It's kind of nice. We don't live that far from the highway, but he's more of a farm dog, so he usually stays away. Thank goodness. Biggrin

I love great pyrenees. My grandma has two part pyrenee's and they are the sweetest dogs, and so protective. She got them to protect her llamas. Yes my 85 year old grandma owns a llama farm. But that's a whole different story. I'll post pics later.

That dog is SOOOO freaking cute!!! OMG, I want him. He's adorable. That picture of him in the cart melted my heart.

Good luck not getting induced. Tell Randy you need some unripe papaya. NOW. You can get away with it. You're too pregnant to argue with.

And that cradle....Wow. That's beautiful. I wish someone would make something like that for us. I actually want to get into wood working and have for a while. Maybe then I could make some things like that.

Gosh Sadie, I totally understand just wanting to meet baby...so hard those last few weeks. Hang in there momma...anytime now!!

Ardee is so cute...I see absolutely NO beagle in that dog though, I see St. Bernard. LOL I used to have a pyrenees too, mine was 125#. LOVE them...they are great dogs. St. Bernard's though, not so fond of. Anyway, I digress....GL and take care of you girl.

That cradle is so cute!!! YEs, can't wait to see Randy in it. ahhh. That will be something he can rock HIS son in one day too. I love things like that...homemade pieces of art.

OMG, how could you say no to that face?!? I don't blame you one bit! Ardee is adorable!! I love both pics. The one of him in the cart just melted me.

Randy will come when he's good and ready. I just can't believe were talking about a week away. :eek::eek: How exciting!!
