12 days! Or less!

No, not 12 days til' Christmas. 12 days until the baby arrives!!! Could be less but I know that I will be having this baby in 12 days! My Dr. is inducing me on the 20th. That is Tim's birthday! I need to kick it into high gear and get this house un-packed! I am really surprised this move hasn't put me into labor yet or broken my water. But I am actually glad about that. I have sooo much to un-pack. I haven't been feeling the baby move much. I told my friend Emily who is a labor and delivery nurse at the hospital and she suggested I go to my Dr. just make sure every thing was ok. I knew I needed to, but I kept procrastinating it because I have so much going on. I needed that extra push to go. For peace of mind. My Dr. is out of town and everybody covering for him was gone for the day so I went to the hospital. They hooked me up and everything sounded good. I was even having a few contractions but nothing consistent or enough to keep me. Which is fine. At least I know all is well. :o) I am sure the baby has dropped. I can breathe! And she feels like she is going to just fall out anytime. It is a crazy feeling! My sister-in-law Tasha had her baby yesterday 07/08/09 her birthday is the birthday I REALLY wanted to have. 7-8-9. So cool! My other sister-in-law Donna is having her baby today 07/09/09. Lucky girl! Two of my good friends from Queen Creek in Arizona had their babies on July 1st and the 6th. AWESOME! And I am the tail end. I will be joining you girls in the new mother/sleep deprived club soon!
UPDATE: I got a text from my sister-in-law Donna today (7-10-09) She just had her baby today at noon. She went in yesterday to be enduced. I bet that was a LONG night for her. Baby Joshua is ADORABLE!!! Havent seen pictures of Tasha's baby yet but I bet she is adorable too!

Good luck! How did you get the doctor locked in on an enducement date?

By the way if you are taking a pole I think you should name her Kate. If you do Katie then it will get to confussing with mom calling Kaitlyn "katie (katy)" for short to keep her different from Kaylynn! :-)

That's the only day in July he is delivering at the hospital closest to me. He is delivering at the hospital in Atlanta the day before. So the 20th is my lucky day.

I know it will be confusing at times to have her also be Katie. I'm not set on either name. I just thought I would see which one sticks. But Kenna and Katrina are set on the name. I keep asking them if they want to call her Kate and they say "No, Katie" Maybe Mom can call her Kate to avoid confusion. Or Kay or Kathleen. Whatever is fine. We will see.
