The Journey

Wednesday, March 26, 2008


So, we went to the doctor last night thinking that Mesha would have progressed to the point that they would break her water and get this thing going, but alas, we were disappointed again. After getting hyped up by the doctor last week and being told she might be induced this morning if her progress was in a particular place, we were told they wouldn't break her water until a week after her due date by the doctor last night. However, last night's doctor did do one thing for us. She stripped Mesha's membranes, which could put her into labor in the next couple of days. When she was examining Mesha, the doctor did decide it would be a good idea to tell us that she thought this would work for sure. I am not a believer any more. Last week the doctor made us think this thing would happen soon and here we are still, so I am not buying this latest doctors promises either. When the baby comes, the baby comes. That is all there is to it. I will say this, though, I can't wait for the baby to come. I am not made for this part of the pregnancy. I can't stand knowing it could be at any time and then have the seconds, hours, days, and weeks tick by. It is like life just went into slow motion and I can't stand it!

Nothing Yet!

We went to the doctor last Tues. and he got us all excited for having the baby early. He said Mesha was progressing a lot and gave us the feeling taht it could happen this weekend. And, yet, nothing has happened! We have had a couple of false alarms, but nothing is real labor. So, we'll see what they say tomorrow at the doctor. The doctor last week suggested that they may break Mesha's water on Wed. morning if she had progressed from last week. I am going crazy just waiting around for her to go into labor. I am going crazy! Pray for us as we wait.

We have officially hit full term!!!!!! 37 weeks, I guess, is concidered full term. So, it could be "any day." I was just talking to a woman from a seminary class the vomits every time she needs to speak in front of others. I think I might puke every time I am going to have a child!!!! I am getting a little nervous. I mean I am definitely very excited, but I am also scared out of my wits. I don't feel old enough to be a dad. Ok, enough with the age jokes, I know you are thinking them!!!! Anyway, we will keep you posted. Pray for Mesha, she is ready to be done being pregnant, like yesterday.

In other baby news, Mesha had a shower put on by her sister and sister-in-laws and we were totally blessed with a bunch of stuff we need. From what I here, it was an incredilbe event, so thank you so much to Jen Good, Jenny (Mesha's sister), and Nikki Good, and Paula Good (Mesha's mother). Mesha felt so blessed and overwhelmed with love.
