Sorry for the delay!

So you are probably wondering where we have been. Yeah I would like to know that, too. We have finished off our basement, put the finishing touches on my work projects, and closed shop for now. We’ve even finished Willem’s room. Yay, us! We also sludged through the holidays.

Willem’s been keeping us on the move, though. Dec 22: 1 cm dilated, 50% effaced. Dec 29: 2 or 3 cm dilated, 70% effaced. Jan 1, 2:00am: Contractions 1 min long and 2 min apart for 2 1/2 hours – go to hospital only for contractions to cease and have to go home at 5 in the morning. What a great way to start off the new year. We have an appointment tomorrow morning with the midwife, so I guess we will just have to wait some more.

This is the room, mostly done. I have a few other things I would like to do but may not get to!!

Josh had been home for almost two weeks for the holidays but is now back to work until the baby comes. I really don’t care for being alone all the time or really just without him during this time. I never expected for these final few days to be so difficult. I am used to having a lot to do but since mostly everything is done, I am left with just TV… Which has anyone seen daytime TV lately? WOW! Humanity is, like, on the brink!

Okay, so I am adding on to this post the day after it was published: so shoot me!

We went to the midwife this morning, and everything went well. They are shocked I am still walking around at 2 or 3 cm for this long. We got an ultrasound because I am measuring small, but that is due to the fact that I am tall. I know, I know – you probably had not noticed. Anyway, he is 7 lbs. 6 oz. and ready to come out, so we will just wait some more. The midwife has her money on tonight, but we will see.
