We found out yesterday at our dr's appt that we have made absolutely NO PROGRESS!!!  None, zilt, zero.......GRRRR!!!!!  So, we are still scheduled to be admitted on the 14th to start the inducement.  That's so close, but yet so far away!  THEN, my dr. proceeds to tell me that she will see me next Tuesday and then after that I will see someone else until THE DAY HARPER IS BORN!!!!  Oh goodness gracious....I about had a heart attack?!?!?  Why, you ask?  Because she is leaving on vacation next Friday and will not be back until the Sunday that I am admitted.  Oh geez.....I about fell off the table!  Not that Harper wants to come any earlier (heehee), but just because!  Oh well....I plan on waiting her out.  I really want MY doctor to deliver Harper because she is the one who knows us best!  Please pray that everything continues to go so well and that her birth is as easy as the rest of the pregnancy has been. ha!  That would be marvelous!  

On top of all that, I am going to be soooooooo busy this next week that it'll probably fly by as quickly as the last few have.  I have an eye appt Monday; diabetic appt, ultrasound, and ob appt. Tuesday, hair appt Wednesday (yay!), off Thursday, and then the non-stress test Friday! WHEW!  So, this next week will be gone before we know it then we'll be down to ONE WEEK!!!  I am so, so excited!  I can't believe we are this close to becoming a family!

And, on top of everything yesterday, it was our last day of school! WHOO HOO!!!!  I think I was way more excited about the end of the year this year than the kiddos were.  I have had about all of work I can take.....I love my job, but I was about at my limit!  Being this pregnant at the end of the year was rough.  BUT, I am so, so, so thankful to have a job and to have been able to work through the entirety of this pregnancy.  What a blessing!

Well, as the pregnancy journey dwindles down, does anyone have any suggestions, comments, or anything that they would like to share???  Since this is our first, we are really in the dark....we don't know what to expect.  And I consider this a good thing! :)  I have an abbreviated list of what to bring to the hospital, but is there one thing that you can think of that we need that you forgot?  Or is there one thing that you wish someone would have told you before you had your child? etc.   Please share!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and enjoys the gorgeous weather we are supposed to have!

We are praying for you guys and Harper. Make sure you two get plenty of sleep until arrival day. Your peaceful nights will be few and far between, but it is all worth it in the end. We know everything will go well and she will be here before you know it riding around on thoes John Deeres. Rest, Rest. Have a great weekend.

The 1st 2-4 weeks are the hardest! It gets better. Take full advantage of the grandmothers! Ha! Pack comfortable pj's and I would take a gown too because its more comfortable in the hospital. Take tons of pictures and love on her every chance you get. My favorite time in the hospital was when everyone went home but Caleb. We just sat there and looked at Brady just the 3 of us! You are going to be a great mom. And when you have no idea what to do next, call your mom. I am so excited for you!
