35 weeks (a day early)

Tomorrow will be 35 weeks with 35 days to go! Of course this doesn't apply to us too much since I will be induced at 39 weeks because of the many factors that have been going on throughout this pregnacy. So, we have 4 weeks (at the latest) until we meet Ms. Emeline!!

We are pretty good to go. I still need to do her laundry and pack the hospital bag, but for some reason I am not in any hurry to do any of this. Which could very well come back to bite me. We do still need to put the car seat together and install it, but the installation can wait until she is actually here if we need too.

I have been in and out of Labor and Delivery twice this week for a massive headache that I still can't manage to get rid of, even with the tylenol with Codeine they gave me. We were also there for dizziness, and faintness every time I stood up, and my pulse was around 120 eek! While there they found I had protein in my urine, so they are going to watch me for pre-e. I have 2 of the signs, the protein and the headache so we will see how it plays out.

Hopefully this week will be a little bit calmer. I don't go back to the OB until the 16th so we will see what they say about things then, we will also start weekly appointments then too.

Here is a picture from this week, I think she has dropped at least some!

Sorry it's a little grainy, I took it with my cell phone..not the best quality camera.

Sorry we have been MIA for so long, but we are back and kicking now!! End of September and October were super crazy, but things have finally slowed down a bit.

We hope that everyone had a Happy Halloween. We went Trick-or-Treating with our neighbors and good friends Carey and Sean! We also had a blast at theneighborhood block party, and have tons of candy to show for it!

Today marks the point of no return for baby Emeline. If she were to decide to make her debut, they would let her w/o any intervention other than a steroid shot for her lungs. We also set our induction date yesterday for December 9th!! They have chosen to induce at 39 weeks due to the excruciating hip and tailbone pain I have had throughout from my pelvic bones seperating, and also to try an avoid the list of complications I had when Landon was born because he was too big for me. We are excited to finally know when we will get to meet her, but have a lot to do still to get ready!

I am going to leave this post short and leave you with a picture of Landon in his Halloween Costume. He was an A-10 pilot (hog driver) on Halloween, but in this picture he is a B-52 navigator. The patches and medal he is wearing on his flight suit as well as the rank (Captain) were my dads from when he served in Vietnam as you guessed it a B-52 navigator.
