It seems to be time for my weekly blog check-in. We are still waiting for the baby,obviously. I finished my medication to stop contractions today so maybe he will arrive soon. I feel good, besides the worrying about when he will get here. I saw the anesthesiologist last week and signed all the paper work for the epidural.
The anesthesiologist explained more about the delivery in one visit than my Obgyn did in 9+ months. I used the same anesthesiologist last year when I had surgery so I trust him and really like him. He also explained a little about my elevated blood sugar which was helpful.
In other more exciting news we received PRESENTS for the baby. Our friends from Sartomer US were so nice to remember us and send us gift cards and gifts for the baby. I was really surprised and so touched they thought of us all the way over here in Paris and gone for three years. I didn't expect anything in the way of a shower but it felt like I kind of had one when I received a big box full of treats.
We also got the baby area set up this weekend. Josh was so great and worked all day Saturday to get our upstairs super clean and ready for the baby. I can't do much because of doctors orders and sheer exhaustion so he did it all. We now have a cat hair free rug and the bed is all set up and ready. I have all his clothes for 0-3 months washed and ready to go in his little dresser. We also have a changing area and all his bath products ready. Now we just need the baby!
