Settle for a Slow Down...

This pregnancy has FLOWN by...I mean WOW....super fast. But now, as we are so close to Griffin's arrival I can feel it, things seem to have come to a halt (and by feel it I don't mean contractions or anything like that, I mean I can feel it in my pants that are too tight - the 3 pairs that I can still fit into - and the fact that I am moving around like a big lug).

Since my last post - the one where I said the word "dilate" - there has been no change in my progress. Still dilated...about a centimeter...2 weeks change. The doctor told us this week that if Griffin has not come on his own before February 10th, they will go ahead and induce labor. So, at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel - an end in sight. Though I'd rather Griffin just come on his own...when he's ready (as long as it's before the 10th, because I'm all about kicking him out of the womb if he hasn't come yet!)

I realize that I should probably just stop being so anxious and enjoy these last few days/weeks before Griffin is here. I'm just so excited to meet him though! Not to mention that my level of physical discomfort is increasing by the day... Chad seems fine with Griffin taking his sweet time. I think the closer we actually get the more nervous Chad is getting (and If I'm being honest with myself, I'm right there with him). Plus, he's got a few things going on a work that he hopes he will be able to cross off his list so he can feel good about being gone once the little babe is here!

In the meantime, I'll just have to settle for a slow down...

I'll just wait in my new glider that my parents got me for my birthday...

Your room is ready and waiting Griffin...

More photos of the completed nursery to come....stay tuned!
