Just got back from the "down there doc" and nothing but good news to report. I brought JJ with me to this appointment so I could stop begging babysitting hours from the in laws, and he loved hearing Baby Bruder's heartbeat. It freaked him out a bit when I had to lay down so they could do the doppler, but he just held my hand, ate his cookies and SURVIVED. I think that he was relieved that it wasn't him up there and that there were no shots or Medical Assistants in cartoon covered scrubs in sight.
I am measuring about two weeks ahead (totally meaningless) and asked the doctor to schedule a December induction for health care reasons. Since I am due January 1, he basically told me that we are of one mind on that one. Whew. Here is to little Rudolph.. I am fine with almost anyday but Christmas or Christmas Eve..
In other boring news.. is anyone as excited for Fall as I am this year?? The weather here has been a little brisk lately and has gotten me pumped for all the fun Autumn activities.
PS.. let me see if I am crazy or normal.. I want new bedding for the new baby. I am not getting anything else new (besides some sleepers, and maybe some blankets, etc) but I want a different nursery and I am only thinking of getting a crib skirt and bumper anyway so it will be pretty cheap. Husband thinks that is crazy and is set on just using the old stuff. Help me out on this one!
