The BIG day!!

I am in the hospital still as I am posting this, I just wanted to give a quick update here, since I can't log into any social networking site as they are blocked by the hospital internet. I am going to post my birth story later with more details, as this lap top isnt very comfortable to type on, esp in this bed.
"The Little Lone Ranger" was born near the very end of Aug 2009 @ 39weeks 10:25am weighing 8lbs 4oz and 19 1/2 inches long... after ONE push!! :) I am one proud surro momma

38 weeks 3 days

nothing new. alot of frustration, not with the pregnancy, but with WHEN the delivery will take place.. Having babies for yourself is hard. Timing it and having babies for others is even harder!!
ok, I couldn't pick just one or 2 pics this time.. I picked 3. I love them so much!! from today 38wks 3 days.. haha and excuse the tripos on the camera, I didn't realize it would look so funny :P

False alarm - 38 weeks 1 day

I woke up at 7 am, having contractions. I started to time them and of course they came 3-5 min apart for a full hour, which I timed via Contraction Master . I got my stuff together, dropped the girls off to head to the hospital to make sure. I get there, still having contractions, nothing too bad, the check me and I am 1-2 cm dilated. They hook me up to the monitors and I have to now sit for an hour. I watched TV tossed and turned in the uncomfortable bed, the hour went past pretty quick with the TV on, and the nurse came back and checked me, still the same 1-2 cm dilated, but contracting. She called OB and he said to send me home and only to come back if they got more intense. If it wouldn't have been a Saturday I bet money they would have kept me.
what is funny to me about this, I have had 3 births, 2 of which were natural started labors, and only 1 was an induction, and both of the natural labors, and my 4th delivery I get sent home with a false alarm!!

37 week apt

I had my 37 week apt (I am 37 weeks 3 days today)
I had another ultrasound checking the baby's position, he is still head down. The Dr also checked my cervix for dilation, he said I was about a fingertip dilated, and had a soft cervix, so when labor starts (or the induction) the cervix is ready to go!

Baby "stuff"

I have some of F & L's things for the baby, they left them here so they don't have to travel with them before the baby needs to use them. What do you think, CUTE huh, can't wait to see what the real baby looks like in it... am "I" thinking of having another of my own now, hmmm I dunno... Ok yes I have been thinking about this, BUT we have to have to wait until Paul and I are ready at the same time, and my body needs time to recoop, as I havent even delivered this one yet!! All this baby stuff is so exciting, and even more exciting when its your own. anyway on to F & L's baby things, lol. love the change of subject huh!?!?
They have the Graco Snug Ride infant car seat and carrier. Also the awesome Graco Quattro Tour stroller.
I asseblemed everything so they will be ready when they arrive in TX for baby. here is the Graco Sungride with one of the girls dolls in it.and the Graco Quattro stroller ( I suugested this as they will have a bit of traveling in airports to do) I love this stroller.put them together and this is what you get.. oh so comfy.
