Okay, so I didn't fill you all in on the last Dr.'s appointment. Maybe it was because I was too depressed to talk about it.
I have come to face reality and will now explain the outcome of the appointment. I had not dilated any further and I wasn't "ripe" enough that the Dr. thought stripping my membranes would do anything. So I took her advice and decided to wait it out. You know, like the pioneers had to.
What is so wrong with looking a little beyond my due date? I am not miserable (getting there...sleep is getting harder and harder to do) and there really is no rush in having Carly arrive. Actually, the longer she stays in, the healthier she'll be, right!?!
However, on the homefront there have been some good things going on.
On Saturday our ward had a "Super Saturday" and I got to make some handmade cards and these cute little tassles (I'll take some pics and most them later). I love doing crafts! I also made an invitation for our wards YW in Excellence program digitally...it's been a long time since I have had time to do that (I'll post a pic of that soon too). And I finished "New Moon." Time to move on to the next book (what a great way to bide my time while waiting this pregnancy out).
Connor has succesfully put himself to sleep for 5 nights in a row!!! It's gotten really cute, I will read him his story, say prayers and then push play on the cd player and tell him that I will check on him in 5 minutes. Usually he replies with "You going to go to the bathroom?" (I must do that a lot lately) or else "See you in 5 minutes." My favorite part is that he falls asleep more quickly than when I was sitting in his room or laying down with him! Yee-haw!!!
Todd is still plugging away at his dissertation. He gets frustrated not being further along than he is. Little things get him sidetracked...golf, kids, baseball games, naps. But, he is still putting in more time than he would have been able to had we stayed in Hawaii.
Abi is still my perfect sleeper and is coming out of her "clingy" phase. Some days are better than others. It sure helps having family around to take the kids for a minute or 60 when I need to calm my nerves. Abi tries them the most...girls!!! We're so moody (and she's so stubborn). Did I mention that she still has no desire to walk. Oh, she can do it. She just won't, especially when I am around.
