Well...this will be my last weekly update before sweet Miss Camden arrives!! I am trying to act sad, but it is REALLY hard! I went in today and everything looked good. I actually got complemented for my weight gain over the last three weeks (three pounds). That was definitely the first time I have been complemented on weight throughout this pregnancy;) I still haven't dilated past 1 finger tip, so Dr. Neal is going to check me into the hospital Monday night and do a procedure that will get my dilation started for Tuesday morning. The only bad news is that he has asked that I stay home until the baby comes. I fainted this morning and he said that was a sign of fatigue and that he would really like for me to stay home and rest until the baby gets here. Why is this bad news??? Well, this is three more days that I will get docked for and I didn't get to tell my class goodbye. I have some anxiety about letting someone else teach my kids for eight weeks...it is my name that will go on the TAKS scores. I also feel that my kids are getting screwed out of some fun activities that I usually do with certain units, because I can't leave plans descriptive enough for each "fun" activity that I want done. Jay took Monday-Wednesday off, so we are going to spend all day Monday together. We are going to go eat somewhere nice and spend the day enjoying being alone for the last time. These past two years have been AMAZING...he is such a wonderful husband, so I am a little sad that it will no longer just be the two of us. Selfishly I don't want to have to share him;) But, on the other hand, I am thrilled to start the next phase of our lives together. He is going to be such a wonderful daddy, and I know I will fall even more deeply in love when I see him interacting with Camden.
This past weekend, we had two showers; one from the church and one at school on Monday. We are so grateful to all of our friends and family that have shared in this special time. We have received so many wonderful gifts...we are now ready for her to arrive! We are doing last minutes touch ups to the nursery, so as soon as we are finished (probably Sunday nught), I will post the final pictures of the room. We have been busy putting everything together...the swing, exerciser, bouncer, etc. It gets more and more real with each thing we do.
Only 5 more days!!!
