Hanging on!

As of yesterday it may look like I will be having a May baby! I had mentioned that I felt like my uterus was going to fall out, well I knew something was going on. I think after having one or two kids you start to know your body well enough to know when things are happening. My doctor isn't even supposed to start checking me until about 2 more weeks, but I told her that I didn't think I was going to make it. And sure enough, I am 50% effaced and dialated to a 1. Which isn't a whole lot, but considering I'm not even really due to the 16th of June that is quite a bit. At least I have now confirmed that I am not crazy...something really is going on!

So at this point I'm just hanging on. My doctor said, "see ya next thursday, maybe!" My guess is that within the next week I'll be at the hospital or have a baby already. That makes me kind of nervous because I'm just so used to being scheduled. Both of my kids were induced for the most part. I was far enough along that they just went ahead and sent me to the hospital from the doctors office and there was no rush. I got my epidural and read magazines and visited. I like it that way. I don't enjoy big suprises of this caliber. So my hope is that if I make it to next thursday that I will go the doctor and be dialated enough that she will just send me to the hospital. I can sure hope for that, but whatever happens I know I will be fine.

Last night I played bunco. Actually it was bunco night, but we didn't get around to playing. They instead surprised me with a diaper shower! I got a ton of diapers and wipes and some other things too. It was so nice, and once again I find myself just so blessed by others. I joined this church bunco group a little over a year ago and when I joined I just thought it was for something fun to do. But they have been a real connection and source of comfort for me. So many of them have called, and really they don't even know me that well. But they didn't let that stop them, because I know that when faced with difficult situations sometimes people don't know what to say. They have all reached out to me and been good friends, and been a real highlight in my life.
And it got me excited. I opened up one of the packages of diapers, and is there anything cuter than a newborn baby diaper? There just so tiny and they smell good.

On another note, I have been trying to download pics on here for days. I have downloaded pictures from my memory card to my mother's computer a thousand times, and for some reason I have stared at this computer for two days and can't find the place to put my memory card. I am just puzzled. I know it's there, and I don't understand why I can't find it! So I will try another day.

I'll keep everyone posted on my progress, and if you don't hear from me for a can probably guess why! Happy Friday everyone!

Praying everything goes super smooth for you. I have heard that with each child that the due dates become shorter. However, that could just be an old wives tale. (lol)

I am so glad that you have been blessed with a great church family. Have a wonderful weekend.
