Dylan will be here soon...

Due to recent high blood pressure concerns at my last appointment, my doctor has decided to put me on bed rest and induce me on Wednesday, May 19...so Dylan should be here in a few days! And the funny part is that May 19th also happens to be our 3-year wedding anniversary! This was certainly unexpected, especially since we had already talked about possibly inducing on the 31st if I went past my due date...but ready or not, here he comes. I went in for one more ultrasound this afternoon and he is already measuring at 8 1/2 pounds, so that makes me very thankful that we are not waiting until the 31st...who knows how big he would’ve been then!?!? I’ll be checking in to Labor & Delivery at 5pm tomorrow night and be induced Wednesday morning...we can’t wait to hold our baby boy in our arms finally!!!


About 3 more weeks to go!!!

I can’t believe how fast time has flown by...Dylan is almost here! Our lives have been absolutely crazy these past few weeks trying to get ready for him and with the school year coming to an end. Keith has had his hands full lately with UIL competition (where his band received Superior ratings on stage and in sight reading, by the way), ensemble contest, instrument drives, and their upcoming Spring Concert. I’ve been keeping busy with finishing referrals, ARDs, paperwork, our end-of-year checkout list, and now packing up my room. It’s always a crazy time in the year, but being pregnant at the same time is definitely slowing me down. Its a miracle I can get myself out of bed every morning!

As far as Dylan is concerned, we’ve been doing plenty there too! A couple of weeks ago we took a childcare class where we learned baby CPR and all the basics about feeding, burping, bathing, sleeping, etc. It was very informative! We also took our Lamaze class too and we definitely learned a lot!!! Keith and I feel so much better about the whole labor and delivery process and we actually feel pretty ready for it. Of course now that I know what to expect, I’m definitely getting anxious about it. But I know I’ll have an excellent coach in there with me and he will help me during it all! Today we took the Baptism class so we can get Dylan baptized in the Catholic church...we’re hoping to have it done during the summer since all of our family is out of town and it’ll be easier to get everyone in. I also have most of my hospital bag packed, so we’re just waiting for some contractions! I’ve had a few here and there, but nothing to get too excited about. He should be here by the end of the month, so keep posted!!!
