So over the course of the last five days, we have been busy trying to convert bedroom #3 from teenage-boy-bedroom to baby-girl-nursery. We have painted (PINK!), and Adam has installed beadboard along one wall. I have been sorting through the miniature clothes, trying to get things ready and put away in the nursery. We still need to paint the beadboard, hang curtains, and set up the crib, but we are getting there. My to-do list is seemingly never-ending, the usual things like unburying the infant seat from under the stairs and getting it washed, making freezer meals to have ready for dinner on those first few postpartum days when I don't want to do anything, and getting the van washed/vacuumed out/oil changed. I am also in the process of making a baby blanket for little Annie, and I am on a quest to find a cute, affordable diaper bag. And that's just the beginning of the list! It's been a crazy few days, and I am more or less exhausted. The thought of laying around in a hospital bed for a couple days sounds pretty good right now!
When I went to the doc this morning, though, I found out that I haven't progressed at all. Disappointing to say the least, especially considering all the activity and stress that I have been through over the last week. I was hoping, only 12 days out from the due date now, that something would be happening!
But the silver lining is that I pled with my doctor, and she agreed to set an induction date. True, it's not until 3 days after my due date--June 15, two weeks from tomorrow, but since Kaiser policy is to not induce until 8 days overdue, I am feeling that it is a small victory. I am really hoping to go into labor naturally before then, but at least now there is an end in sight!
