Epppppp! I have some exciting news! Ready for it?! We will officially be a family of 4 (plus poochie!) by this time next week! I mean, baby could decide to come sooner than that, but because I am measuring so big and the baby is estimated to be over 1o lbs, the doctor doesn’t want me to go past my due date. So an induction has been scheduled! Not gonna lie, I am pretty nervous about being induced. My water broke with Molly and I didn’t go into labor so I had to be induced with her and it was a horrible experience – up until I held her in my arms of course. But my doctor assured me that I had a unique situation with her – loooong story but my epidural didn’t work and my Pitocin levels had to be be increased quickly because I wasn’t contracting. It wasn’t fun (among many other problems), but pretty much no ones birth story is right?!
So needless to say I am soooo excited that we will have this little angel in our arms so soon!!! Like I said above, he could totally come on his own beforehand and I really hope he does! But there is something so exciting knowing a final date of this pregnancy! I feel like it’s allowing me to REALLY enjoy these final days. Plus it’s so nice because Kevin’s mom was able to book her flight out (and my mom will come shortly after) so we will have help with Molly. I can’t tell you how stressed I have been worrying about the baby coming in the middle of the night and us having to wake Molly because we can’t get a hold of anyone to come watch her. Or that I go into labor so quickly that we have to wake her because there is no time to wait for someone to come over to watch her. I guess that could still happen before the induction. So who knows!
And you know me, now it’s time for dress details!!!! Would you believe that this dress is NOT maternity? I think it is absolutely darling! I see myself wearing it this summer with cowboy boots! But for now, I am all about being happy, barefoot, and pregnant!!! I also linked details to my faux flowers on my kitchen island (and the glass pitcher I put them in) because I am obsessed with them! Aren’t they so pretty?! For $25 they are worth every penny!!!!
Anyway, I am so so so excited that I will have my baby boy in my arms next week!!! Excited and so very scared. I still don’t know how I am going to love anyone as much as Molly but everyone tells me your heart grows. I am counting on that! I love you all sooo much! Thank you for loving me and my family!
