4 Days to D Day

Being pregnant sucks. Being at the the of the pregnancy and having only a few days left to the due date sucks more. Knowing that just because his estimated expulsion date is this Saturday but he could still go for another 2 weeks is the WORST. Although, talking to the doctor on Monday, it sounds like they don’t like you to go past 41 weeks. If he doesn’t come this weekend or before, I have to do a non-stress test and possibly another ultrasound (what is with the ultrasounds here?) on Monday to see how he’s doing and see if I have to get induced. Induction is something I absolutely did not want unless it’s medically necessary. However, because I don’t know what makes it medically necessary, I have to trust that the doctors will only suggest induction if there is a real need. So, we will see what happens in the next few days. 2 weeks ago I was 1.5 cm dilated and 70% effaced and this Monday I had progressed to 2 cm and 80% effaced so there has been change but it doesn’t mean anything in terms of when he’s going to make his debut. I have been getting the little last minute things together like making sure the bag is packed and I’ve started making the cookies for the nurses. Nurses are often under-appreciated and I know that something as simple as cookies can go a long way in making someones day. Also, I know that working Labour and Delivery isn’t always sunshine and rainbows like people think it is so having a container of cookies around can help someone’s bad day. Plus, it gets us off on the right foot with our nurse. Hopefully.

On to something else.

A couple weeks ago, our friend Megan asked if we were going to do any maternity photos. We hadn’t planned on it because, well, we aren’t the most photogenic people out there and also, I didn’t think we needed documentation of how giant I am. I asked Tyler what he thought and he said that documenting how giant I am is exactly what we should do. Thanks for the boost in self esteem, Tyler.

So, a couple weeks ago, Megan and I went out back and took some photos during the week and then on the weekend we took some more with Tyler. Megan has a fancy camera so we managed to get some good shots, despite mine and Tyler’s ability to look ridiculous when not even trying. I have photo shop on my tablet and had fun playing around with colours and black and white and stuff like that.

So, here are the best ones we took.

Megan did a good job and they came out quite nice. I mean, for Tyler and I.

I’m not entirely sure when I’ll post again (if it’ll be before or after the spawn comes). Hopefully, he’ll be a good little spawn and come in the next few days and all will be well! Knowing mine and Tyler’s luck though he will wait as long as possible. We’ll see!

  1. Such great pics! You did the right thing and won’t regret having those. I have to say, I do regret not taking video of the birth. I thought that was nuts and why would you EVER want such a thing. Not to freak you out but the birth was a bit like a car accident, body parts were flying around, I think I spun around a few times and in the end I kept my eyes shut even when they provided a mirror. Essentially I was in some sort of shocked daze and missed the whole thing. It never occurred to me that I would be the one I would have shown the video to!
