Final Stretch

It's getting close to D-day! Doctor had me scheduled to get a Non-Stress test done this morning but the Maternity Center at our local hospital didn't have a monitor available so they called and rescheduled it for tomorrow...I had scheduled it for a time that I already had another appointment (pretty sure this baby is taking all my brain juice some days) so I called them immediately back to re-reschedule, and I am glad I did. 
The delivering Dr was there and after she talked to me on the phone, asking the basic questions, decided that the test would not be necessary and that I could instead just come in on Sat morn and get induced ;-)
So guess what my next post will be about??
Stay tuned for delivery updates and pics and please keep us all in your prayers for a speedy and complication free Birthday for Baby-K!

2 Weeks Notice

Can anyone else even believe that Mr. Baby K will be here in under 2 wks...I am so excited to meet him, probably not quite as excited as D&J are but pretty close! I am also very ready to have my body back to single occupancy :) 

Just to catch everyone back up...2 wks ago we went in for the millionth U/S to make sure all was still good on Baby boy's development and growth. It was great, possibly too great since the tech says he is looking like a big baby...but anyways he is still perfect in every way.
Went to OB appt last wk for what is supposed to be the next to last fetal check-up before delivery day, which is still tentatively scheduled for Sat. 9/29 supposing he behaves himself and doesn't come sooner. Found out at that Appt that my Group B strep test came back negative, which is great since I am sure that D&J will be nervous enough and the antibiotics would have just given them one more thing to worry about that day.
This coming Thurs I will go in to OB again so that she can check for dilation and so forth and at that appt we are supposed to set up a day for me to go to the delivery hospital to get some final monitoring done a day or two before delivery. 
Baby wasn't cooperating during the last U/S so we didn't get any pictures of him to share, but fret not...soon we will have lots and lots and lots of pics of him in living color for all to see :D

In other news:  On Sept 4 I managed to convince the very patient and understanding owner of the house we are in the process of buying to let me and the kids move into the property ahead of a closing date, so that my kids wouldn't miss anymore of the new school year. So the last few weekends have been very busy for all of us as we are still getting settled in. And of course in true fashion, the house refuses to behave itself, so my very helpful family, especially my soon to be a father Brother and my Dad, has been doing a great job of getting things in working order for me and the kids before Baby K gets here and begins to demand all of their attention. I gotta give them credit, they never complain. We should be finally 'officially' closing on the house this week and I couldn't be happier to get that out of the way, especially since we haven't been able to bring my dogs with us to the new house yet and I am really starting to miss all the craziness they provide to our lives.

Well time for this excessively pregnant person to crawl into bed and catch a few winks. Sleep has been a precious commodity this last few weeks, since my bladder, which is pretty good during the day, seems to only hold about 2 ounces during the nighttime hours...I'm sure the 7 lbs of ice I eat a day doesn't help, or it could be the 7 or so lb child that resides there like to sleep on it. Well hopefully now that I have my Internet back I will be able to update again sooner than delivery time...but if not keep us in your prayers for a safe and speedy delivery :)
