Waiting....

I am so not good at this "waiting for the baby to get here" thing we are doing right now. Not only that....I am a planner. I always have a plan. I like to plan things. When we go on vacation I plan for months. I plan my days. I plan my weekends. I plan how I am going to plan things.

Baby boy's arrival is something I can't plan and it's making me crazy! I need to know. I need to know what day and what time. Will he decide to arrive while I am at work or when I am at home? Will I be on may way to work or on my way home from work? Will it be during the night when I am sleeping or in the morning when I just wake up?

Will it be a weekday or a weekend? Will we have enough time to get to the hospital? Will I remember to bring the things I planned to bring?

Oh my word.....I can hardly stand it. :)

Tresa did go to the doctor today and she said that she is about as ready as she can get. She doesn't expect her to make it until the 23rd, but what do they really know? I saw my doctor in the afternoon one time. She told me nothing was happening and she would see me next week and I had the baby that night. Fooled her!

So many people have asked Tresa how big the doctor thinks the baby is. Well, none of the doctors have mentioned that, so today she asked. The doctor felt around on her belly and said it isn't scientific, but she would guess that he is about 8 pounds. 8 POUNDS??? Tresa told me she is mortified. She never expected baby boy to be that big. Must be all those Blizzards from DQ! HAHA! The doctor said that's a wonderful size.

So, we are waiting and I am trying to be patient. I told Tresa that baby boy paid rent through the 23rd so she can't evict him just yet....besides he's been a wonderful tenant.

And Tresa has been a super landlady! Maybe baby boy will be here when you wake up tomorrow! I can only imagine your anticipation and can't wait to see him and learn his name.

i can so sympathize with you! i had to find out about baby boy's arrival after i was out of the country because he hadn't managed to make his arrival in between my flights (how rude, eh? lol!)

sounds like a great birth weight for that boy. best of luck.

can't wait to see pics.

I hope the little guy gets here soon. I know how hard the waiting is. 8 pounds sounds like a very nice size. Our first grandson weighed 9 pounds even. The second one, his brother, weighed in at just a tad over 7 pounds.

when my daughter was pregnant, and contractions started, they sent her home two times from the hospital saying she wasn't dilated enough to stay. The first time, we all arrived at the hospital with a huge helium balloon that sang "baby face" whenever we touched it and the nurses looked at us like, "you are so lame, she isn't even in "real Labor yet" ". That balloon made all three trips to the hosp with us (the third being the "Real thing") we were so excited and didn't get much sleep during those couple of days!

Ah, but those babies are easier in than out--I always told people that!

I'm sure it's hard waiting especially this close! My Hannah was over 8#, but son John was only 6.5#. I hope Tresa has a good delivery and you don't have to wait much longer!

So exciting! I know you can't wait.

I completely understand your predicament. I'm a planner too. Without a plan, I go CRAZY!

Good luck! ;)
