So it's Sweet Pea's due date...

and here I sit, updating the blog at 4am. I wish I was up due to contractions - I updated the blog on J's due date in the middle of the night because of them - but not so today. I couldn't sleep due to my numb hands, so I got up.

Here's the deal - I had an ultrasound yesterday to check SP's fluid levels. They are good, she's looking great and we got to see her very pudgy little face! Aww. If I don't go into labor this weekend, I have a non-stress test and another fluid check at the hospital Monday morning. Then a doctors appointment Tuesday morning to discuss induction. If she's okay in there, I want to wait til 41 weeks for induction - hopefully not longer than that. I would prefer to avoid induction if at all possible, even though I am extremely uncomfortable! My mom would love if she arrived on 3/31 - which just happens to be my mom's birthday, too. We shall see - she of course could still arrive today!

Shawn and I have been trying to enjoy the last few days of our family of three as much as possible. Jeremiah, now 21 months, is becoming such a little person. It's amazing to think that less than 2 years ago he was a helpless newborn - now he's anything BUT helpless. He does everything he can on his own and wants to be left to figure things out by himself. Even if you show him how to do something, he'd rather do it his way. (That's not typical toddler behavior, is it? Ha ha) He has also started using the potty - not regularly though. That's more my fault - I'm waaay too lazy at this point to be running to the bathroom with him every 15 minutes. I will commit once SP arrives and is not nursing every 2 hours. I think he's going to make a great big brother, once he gets over the jealousy of having to share the spotlight with another little one. He loves being the center of attention! I don't know where he gets that from.

Keep an eye on the blog! Updates will be here if and when she ever decides to make an appearance!
